Whether long hair or short, adding layers to your hairstyle will add volume, shape and thickness, plus can also give the illusion of length.
Queen of layering, Jennifer Aniston has choppy layers down to a fine art, championing layered hairstyles for over 10 years. Proving you can work layers into almost every 'do, Jen has sported them in an array of hairstyles from her iconic '90s Rachel haircut to her more current longer bob.
Short hairstyle chameleons Anne Hathaway and Sami Gayle prove that layering isn't just for long hairstyles, both working soft layers into their pixie cut crops. Perfect for short haircuts, layers add extra body and shape, giving a more textured look.
For longer hairstyles, take notes from Kim Kardashian who opts for shorter, graduated layers at cheekbone level. Face-framing layers suit every face shape and look super chic when hair is swept back into ponytails or topknots.
For effortlessly sexy layers, think Sienna Miller's bouncy blonde hair. Just ask your hairdresser to cut long layers below your jaw-line and graduate all the wayaround throughout the tips.
