I instantly fell in love with this lady’s flirty and fun haircut. The layers just like the one above are the key if your goal is to deliver a fresh vibe.

Here is another do that was created for ladies with thick hair. As you can see in the image, the overall length of the hair is supposed to fall a bit past the lady’s shoulders, but the layers should be plentiful and long. The shortest ones on your head should hit your chin where you will bring them forward.

Daring and bold, I am confident you will love this look.

These wisps of hair strands have been made all the more gorgeous by the simple fact that they vary in lengths and have been perfectly layered.

Let us start by setting aside the fact that the lady in the image above boasts gorgeous and silky red hair and let us focus on the mesmeric cut. Even though you can see that she has strategically placed the light layers toward the bottom part, her hair still looks like it boasts a ton of movement, and I think that is thanks to the layering and length.

The person who styled the hairstyle deserves a raise.

Better yet, I loved that this hairstyle is highly versatile and can be easily worn to formal and informal occasions as well.

If you decide to try out the hairstyle, also rest assured you can easily put it back in a half-up bun or a ponytail if you ever need to (and of course, it will still look fabulous.)
