What are concave layers?

The technique of concave layering is about creating the illusion of fuller lengths of hair. This is achieved as the hairdresser lifts vertical sections of the hair up, and cuts it with angled fingers. The results are longer layers on the outside and shorter ones at the crown, which create a concave or rounded shape. While these layers are not something relatively new, the voluminous 90s hairstyle effect has gathered much attention on social media. Think of the 90s supermodel blowout hairstyle or the trendy curve cut. Every girl wants to have concave layers in 2023. Why shouldn’t you?

Most hair stylists should be familiar with the term “concave layers”, but just to be sure, you can always bring pictures of your desired haircut. Your stylists should consider the shape of your face and then decide where should the concave layers start to flatter your facial features most. If you have fine hair, you can ask for layers that will enhance movement. Whereas, if you have thick hair, ask for such that will remove weight from the tips. You can also say you want round-length layers with face-framing ones.
