9 Ideal Trendy Long and Layered Haircuts

{YBA} Hot ideal trendy long and Layered Hairstyles is most popular and favorite of celebrities and their fans, all teens and college girls also. The beauty of long and layered cuts?

They look good on pretty much everyone. Stylists just caution that the back be cut in a U Shape, hair that’s straight across will make you look like a linebacker.

Doutzen Kroes

For a haircut worthy of a Victoria’s Secret angel, “you want short pieces in the front and then the rest to be almost all one length,” says hairstylist Oscar Blandi of the Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City. “When you put layers only in the front, they highlight your facial features.” Coax a few waves by wrapping two inch sections of hair around a large-barrel curling iron.

Bar Refaeli

The layers are few and far between in Refaeli’s cut. “Her hair is almost all one length with layering only in the front, starting at the collarbone,” says hairstylist Garren of the Garren New York salon. Ask your stylist to snip into your ends to create a similar wispiness.

Jennifer Lopez

To get Lopez’s signature look, “you want to start the layers at the jawline and then graduate them through the bottom, all around the head,” says her stylist Oribe of the Oribe Salon in Miami. “Once the hair is dry, ask your stylist to pull out little pieces with his fingers to create slight layers here and there, this gives it movement and action.” Also request that he soften the ends with thinning shears to lighten up the look.

Kim Kardashian

The secret to Kardashian’s perfectly tousled hair: the right layers. “It’s so important, if it wasn’t layered enough the look would collapse,” says hairstylist Frank Galasso of Frank Studio in Santa Monica, who cuts Kardashian’s hair.

“There are shorter layers around her cheeks and all through the front, but you want seamless, long layers through the back, so it doesn’t look like they’re there, but they are.” The Kardashian family is a perfect example of how versatile this style is, each sister has a different face shape, but they all share the same cut, Galasso says.

Sienna Miller

Miller’s laid-back style is thanks to her low-key cut. “Her long layers only start below the jawline and continue all the way around throughout the ends,” says Garren. To finish the look, ask for the length to be a few inches longer than your collarbone and for it to be cut square across the back.

Vanessa Hudgens

For mermaid locks like these, “Ask for heavy layers that start two inches below your chin,” says hairstylist Mark Townsend of the Marie Robinson Salon in New York City. “Then have him thin out the ends for a wispy effect.” This cut is perfect for textured hair like Hudgens’s “layers let the hair move, ” he says.

Amanda Seyfried

If you’re looking for the gold standard of long, layered hair, look at Amanda Seyfried. “There are some face-framing layers that start at the chin and nice long layers throughout, which gives it incredible movement,” says Townsend.

But Seyfried’s hair is still heavy at the bottom, not wispy like the other styles, which is what Townsend likes most about the cut. “Her hair still looks thick even though there are layers in it, because the bottom portion of the hair hasn’t been heavily cut into, an idea that’s very inspired by the ’70s,” he says.

Julia Roberts

For those with thick, wavy, or curly hair like Roberts, this cut is ideal. “Her hair is all layers from the chin to the bottom,” says her stylist, Serge Normant of the Serge Normant at John Frieda salon in New York City. “And it’s slightly thinned at the ends to give a lighter feel to the waves.”

He says it’s important to keep in mind that curls will shrink a bit once they’re dry, so err on the longer side when deciding your ultimate length. Roberts’ hair ends about four inches below her shoulders.

Sofia Vergara

If those bangs you’re growing out have reached an all-time awkward length, consider this cut. “Sofia’s layers start at the bridge of her nose and angle downward, which opens up her face,” says Townsend. “But it’s also perfect for someone who wants to grow out old bangs because they’ll just blend in.” Just make sure you avoid the long mullet look: hair that’s heavily layered in front with all the length left in the back.
