The Latest Long Layered Hairstyles

Layers can flatter all face shapes while adding body and movement to the hair.
Layers are really hot at the moment, which is most apparent on the red carpet where all the celebs are flaunting long, layered ‘dos. The great thing about layers is that they flatter all face shapes while adding body and movement to the hair. Adding layers is also a great way to slim down a wide face or balance out any harsh angles. Of course, hairstyles are always evolving and modernizing, so let’s check out the latest long, layered hairstyles as seen on the red carpet, for some new style ideas.
Sophia Bush is working her layers here by adding flip and curl to the ends. This hairstyle works well with her heart- shaped face, and it would also suit round, oval and triangular face shapes as well. Although a grown out fringe would blend in nicely with this hairstyle, Sophia’s shorter angled bangs also look lovely and really bring out her eyes. If you choose to get this hairstyle at your next visit to the salon, keep in mind that it is very versatile and can be styled to fit your moods. For example, you can pull off this girlie look by flipping out the ends like Sophia, or create a more sophisticated look by straightening it with a flat iron. To compliment her hairdo, Sophia has created a dark smoky eye makeup look, paired with a dark red lipstick. Overall, this creates a classy evening look that works great for brunette, blonde and black hair.
Carly Rae Jepsen is flaunting another hot layered look—the Seventies-inspired shag ‘do. This hairstyle works best for women with an edgier sense of style and who can pull off a heavy, eye-skmming fringe. This style is a definite no-no for square or rectangular face shapes, but will look striking on all other shapes. To get this hairstyle, ask your stylist to add jagged layers throughout your hair and a heavy fringe that tapers around the face. This will take regular trips to your stylist to maintain but looks oh-so-trendy on a daily basis! Carly has gone for a natural makeup look here, which is not her typical style. However, her light copper hair does work well with her natural porcelain skin and light blue eyes. For a vampy look, this hairstyle looks fabulous with a deep, dark smoky eye and a nude lip.
And, for ladies who love a curly ‘do, look no further than Golnesa Gharachedaghi’s high volume, layered hairstyle. Adding long and medium layers throughout the back and sides has shaped her curly hair into a chic and manageable style. This is a great option for women who love to let their natural texture shine through and who don’t want to spend hours using a flat iron to look fabulous. Golnesa works her wild style by creating dramatic smoky cat’s eye makeup that highlights her gorgeous, dark almond-shaped eyes and perfectly arched brows. The rest of her face glows with a bit of bronzer on the cheeks, and a soft pink lipstick finished this look off to perfection.
So there you go—three very different layered looks for three different types of hair. Which one is right for you?
