The appearance of short, layered hairstyles amongst women is a relatively new phenomenon. Until about 100 years ago, short hair was considered exclusively and only a man’s hairstyle. Over time, however, this is changing, with many women opting for different types of short haircuts according to their face shape and features. In our modern times, many women as well as young girls choose short haircuts. Apart from looking super stylish and elegant, maintenance and styling is also extremely easy and not very time-consuming considering the hectic daily lives we all live in. We’re going to show you some of the most stylish short layered hairstyles that we are sure will inspire you to try something new!

Stylish short layered hairstyles

As mentioned before, short layered hairstyles are very trendy right now. Layers create extra volume and texture to the hair and are often a preferred option as they can be done on any hair length. It’s best to take your time before getting a haircut to choose the right layered hairstyle for you, if you haven’t already. Ask your hairdresser which is the best short hairstyle for you based on your face type. For example, women with an oval face more often opt for a classic bob haircut. If your face is triangular, a pixie cut will look great. Once you get a gorgeous layered haircut, styling it will be extremely enjoyable and easy! Let’s take a look at some ideas for short layered hairstyles now!

Gorgeous beach waves

The beautiful layers in your hair look even more stunning when you style them into beach waves. This slightly casual look is suitable for every day as well as for more formal events, if, of course, you add some stylish accessories in your hair. Beach waves can be created using a curling iron, but also with a special salt spray. You can buy one, but it’s also not difficult to make it at home using a few ingredients: warm water, 1 teaspoon sea salt, 2 teaspoons coconut oil, 2 teaspoons aloe gel, 1 teaspoon Epsom salt, and essential oil of your choice. You put all the ingredients in an empty spray bottle and shake it well. Spray onto clean, damp hair and blow dry using a diffuser or by pressing the hair with your hands. You can also braid your hair overnight to let it dry naturally.

Cute messy look

If you’re a fan of the cute, casual looks, you’ll be able to style your short hair in layers with minimal effort. Messy hairstyles are a sought-after effect among many women of all ages. We know that it’s the decisions we make about our appearance (outfits, haircuts, even makeup and manicure) that express each individual’s style and way of life. Casual hairstyles are also a common choice, as they can be both cute and romantic. Besides, as we have already said, they are extremely easy to do. The only thing you need to achieve this effect is a high-hold hair mousse to apply to your hair. After that, you just need to scrunch your locks very well and style them with your fingers in a way that you like. And that’s it!

Experimenting with hair color

Layered hairstyles give us the freedom to experiment with different colors. You don’t always have to stick to one main color. In fact, layers create an amazing depth that is suitable for adding at least 2, and why not more, shades to your hair? One extremely daring but super effective idea is the combination of pink, blue, blonde and purple pastel shades! Why not? If you like this mix of colors and trust your hairdresser, there’s nothing wrong with giving it a try! Of course, if you’re not a fan of such unconventional looks, you can go for very soft highlights, or try techniques like balayage or ombre. The decision is entirely yours, but don’t hesitate too much – hair hues are really popular and there’s a reason why! They look gorgeous, and we’re sure they’ll suit you too!
