How to Get a Long Layered Haircut at Home

Posted by HairLady on Tue, Mar 14th, 2006
Long layered haircuts enjoy constant popularity among women. Almost everyone could fit in a long layered haircut as it can be altered according to different facial features. To achieve it, simply cut the hair into layers of unequal length, the shortest on the uppermost, with length increasing down to the ends. It's an easy way to look sexy and stylish.


      

Here's step by step how you can get a long layered haircut at home for yourself or someone else.

Step 1: Wash hair, dry it gently with a clean towel (do not use a hair dryer), and comb the hair to remove all tangles in preparation for cutting.

Step 2: Make a part. Determine the part according to different face shape and personal preference.

Step 3: Decide the longest length of the hairstyle you want and cut the hair to that length.

Step 4: Section hair into seven sections: left side, right side, top, left crown, right crown, left nape and right nape. Generally the upper sections should be shorter in length than the lower sections.

Step 5: Start with the left crown section. Decide how short and slant you want it to be and trim it to that length.

Step 6: Move to the right side of the head and repeat the process on the right crown section. Trim it and make sure it is the same length as the left side.

Step 7: Repeat this process for all of the various layers you want for the style.

Step 8: Use a razor to clip away any protruding "corners" or segments that may have been missed.

im a cos student as well.    weve learned the proper way to cut a 90 degree for state boards.    im sure the way she explained works as well.    it just takes some experience and practice to develop your own style of cutting.    its the same idea, we are just taught to start at the nape and go up.    just beware.....if your not careful at the top and sides, youll get a mini mullet.

I'm a recent cosmo graduate, and once you graduate and get into a salon, you will realize that not everything you learned in school is the best way to do things in the salon.    I quickly learned this on my first day of work in a real salon.    It's pretty sad, because all beauty schools seem to care about is getting you prepped and ready to pass your state boards.    After that, you're pretty much on your own.    Most salons out there want you to cut quickly & efficiently, so like I said, throw out what you learned in school, and watch the other stylist who have been doing hair for alot longer.    They will show you a lot of tips and tricks that will make you a faster and better hair stylist.

im also a cos. student and if i did my long layered hair cut in thoose steps i think my teacher would be very angry as this is not the way we have learned how to do it. SHe would say this was is very wrong . It may work but i would not want to try it this way and i hope liz that you would not speak to your client's this way because if you do you will not have a clientel for very long if you were even able to build one.

I especially don't like the last one... who would cut their hair on an angle like that.... really!!!    Must have been done by that Liz Daniels (the one who commented at the top) seeing as she thinks they look great.

I'm in cosmetology school, and I would like to give some advice to everyone...IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN EDUCATED ON HOW TO CUT HAIR, PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS YOURSELF. it will look absolutely horrible and you will have to go pay a hairstylist to fix it for you, and you are going to look really stupid in the process. and to everyone who thinks those hairstyle pictures are ugly, you are stupid. You must not know what "creative" hairstyles are. i'm sorry you're too fat and lazy to get off your ''and flat iron your hair so it will look good. seriously. get a life. I think those hairstyles are beautiful.

I am a licensed cosmetologist and after reading this post by Liz Daniels I was a little shocked.    I hope Liz doesn't talk to her clients like that and insult their inteligence, and if she does maybe she should reconsider her career.    Maybe a job at the local drive thru would suit her better.

way to go Kim... I totally agree with you.    If I was in her chair and she talked to me like that, I would let her finish, tell her it looks like crap and walk out.    I don't pay for insults.....

okay i am really tired of these hairstyle websites that rarely show galleries of their haircuts. every 2 months i go in for a new haircut (my hair grows fast) all i want is to be able to look on the internet for a PHOTO, not the discription of one, that i can take in to my hair dresser.

-- me too i really just want a picture of small side bangs and layers for a long haired person(me)and with one hour on the net a total of 1 ok picture
