If you have short layered hair, then you know that it’s a great way to stay cool even when the weather is warm. However, these layers require special care to keep them looking healthy and bouncy. Luckily, there are some styling tricks you can use to get the most out of your layered cut and make sure it stays fresh without having to go back for a trim every two weeks.

Use a fine-toothed comb
Using a fine-toothed comb, you can make sure that each section of hair is straight, smooth, and neat. The fine teeth can help to ensure that the hair is not tangled or frizzy.
Follow the natural fall of the hair
You may have to give your hair a little help to get it started in the right direction. For example, if your natural fall is a bit wavy and wispy, you could use a blow dryer or wand set on medium heat to create some volume. Pulling the strands up and back will also give them more body.
You can also choose to do something with the ends of your layered haircut that will make them look fuller. A good way to do this is by curling them around large-barreled curling irons or flat irons until they’re nice and bouncy, then leaving them down while they cool off (or letting them air-dry).
Cut one layer at a time
The first thing to do is cut each layer separately. This will ensure that you don’t accidentally cut your hair too short. It also makes it easier for the next person who does your haircut, because they won’t have to guess which parts were supposed to be longer or shorter than others.
In other words, don’t be like me and make a mess of things by trying to cut all my layers at once!
Cut straight across for blunt ends
The first thing to do is cut the ends of your hair straight across the bottom. You don’t want them too short, but a few inches will help blend them into the rest of your layers after you’ve cut them.
Also try not to cut it more than once every two months just so it can have some time to grow out before you have to go back in there and get another trim!
You also shouldn’t use too many products on it—try not to use any product at all (it’s best if you just let nature take its course). If there are any products that make your hair dry or greasy, stop using them!
Take care of your curly hair and it will look healthy and beautiful
Curly hair can be a pain to manage, but it doesn’t have to be. If you keep your hair clean and moisturized, you’ll find that it’s much easier to manage than if it’s left dirty or dry. Here are some tips for helping your curly locks stay healthy:
- Use a good conditioner on your hair every time you shower. Do not try any other products like mousse or gel because they will only weigh down the curls, making them frizzy and hard to style. Just use one of those cheap drugstore brands that make suds when applied directly onto wet strands (not rinsed off).
- Use an overnight hair mask once per week before bedtime (after washing with conditioner). This will help repair damage done by styling tools such as straightening irons and curling wands over time as well as provide a necessary moisture boost during the winter months when air is dry indoors from heating systems running full blast 24/7 throughout the entire year!
For finer-textured types who want thicker-looking strands without going overboard into “Afro-American” territory, try this trick: After applying for gel formula type product, work carefully through each section individually until fully saturated with the product, then let sit overnight or at least 8 hours so the product has time properly set up before heading out into the world next day; You may need extra product depending on the length and density level though, so don’t hesitate to ask a sales associate at beauty supply store if unsure how much might be needed.”
My last tip is to be patient. Don’t rush the process and make sure you have all of your tools ready before you begin cutting your hair. This will help ensure that each step goes smoothly without any hiccups along the way.
