Layered vs Non Layered Hair

Layered vs Non Layered Hair: What Are The Differences?

The difference between layered vs non-layered hair is the way the hairstyle is cut. Layered hair has different lengths of strands, whereas non-layered hair has strands of the same length.

Layered vs non-layered hair? Which option is better for your hair?

That will depend on your hair type, lifestyle, and other factors. Below are some of the most important ones to consider.

Today, I want to talk about the difference between a layered and traditional haircut without layers.

In the end, your haircut should be based on what you think looks best.

Based on the thickness of your hair, you’ll be able to tell quickly if a layered cut is a better option. I can assure you that in less than three and a half minutes, the decision process will be over.

Ready to start?

First, here are some general ideas that I’m sure you’ll find interesting.

Layering hair with texture can create the feeling of having volume. For example, if your hair is wavy, layers can help give shape to that haircut better.

If you have fine hair, AVOID layering. But if you have curly hair, it’s an ideal option because it’ll reduce the amount of hair and give you more volume.

If you’re the type of person who prefers an effortlessly-styled haircut and you’re willing to forgo heat styling, layered haircuts could be just what you need.

Women are usually looking for trends in haircuts when they want a change. Photos on the Internet are an obvious starting point, where there’s lots of different styles to choose from. One of the more popular haircuts is the layered cut.

It isn’t only the internet that people go to find answers to what they’re searching for. I often get questions about them in my salon.

There isn’t only one answer because no two women are alike.

When you’re thinking about layers, there are several factors that you’ll need to take into consideration before deciding if they’re right for your haircut.

If you decide to get a haircut it is important to be sure about what you want. Once the hair is cut it may take a long time for your hair to grow back, but if you keep getting haircuts the length of your hair will keep decreasing.

Do you know what to take into account when deciding what you want to do to your hair? What are your main potential obstacles?

To make it easy, I’ll list three main factors:

Please pay attention to the factors I listed. Have you really?

Choosing a haircut can be a difficult decision. You have to weigh in factors such as aesthetics, the time it takes to style before choosing the right option for you.

You’re considering how a layered cut might benefit your hair and the time you will spend fixing it up afterwards.

If you are thinking about booking an appointment with your stylist, here are some questions to ask yourself before making any decisions:

  • Thin-layered cuts usually work best to ease styling. Consider cutting thicker layers for curly hair.
  • Layered cuts and a lot of hair volume might not be a good look for those with finer hair.
  • If you like to keep your hair styled in different ways, we do not recommend a layered cut.

Layered haircuts are all the rage these days, but not everyone can pull them off. We’ll walk you through how to figure out if this style is for you based on your hair type and lifestyle.


Layered cuts are great for all types of hair and work best on those with unruly curls or waves.

If you have curly hair, your volume will be higher.It means that when you try to comb or brush your hair, it comes up taller and with more volume.It seems as though your hair is doubled, but it’s actually the same amount as usual.

Would you like to see yourself with twice as many curls in your hair? Do you agree with this decision, where it might feel like you have a lion’s mane?

If you’re willing to take the risk, you can talk to your stylist and ask for a textured layered cut to give your hair some structure.

Does it bother you when your hair is always in your face? Do you only notice its movement when the wind picks up?

If your hair is naturally straight, you should think about trying a layered haircut to give your locks some texture and volume.

You can choose how long you want your hair by opting for cascades (longer layers), rounds (regular layers), V-layers (shorter layers) or thinning layers.

Now, what about hair thickness?



I would recommend you avoid layered haircuts if you have fine hair and you want to avoid your hair looking thinner. This makes it seem like you have less hair.

When cut in layers, fine hair can appear even thinner and more sparse than before. Just like when chunks of hair are removed in a salon, the density decreases and it becomes fuller.

Think about what it would be like when small segments of your hair are gradually stripped away?

As if the top layers were ‘swollen,’ which can be quite unpleasant.


Now if you have thick hair, give it more movement & volume by cutting it in layers. This will remove weight and make the hair look lighter.

Finally, What is your usual hairstyle?Have you been trying a different hairstyle every morning in the mirror?


You don’t need to style the layered cut after washing because the hair type isn’t important.

Women with short hair, women who live behind the clock, or those who don’t have time to do their hair can all benefit from this.

Women who aren’t good at handling curlers or flat irons, as well as some who don’t know how to make a stylish updo can also enjoy this.

If you usually curl or iron your hair when it needs a refresh, layering may not be what you need.

That’s when you want to look your best. Depending on the occasion, your usual routine may involve curling or ironing your hair.

When you straighten your hair after a layered cut, you will lose the effect of the cut. You will see the messy unstyled layers.

The same thing will happen when you use a curling iron on your hair. You’ll end up with long and short curls, giving you an unkempt hairstyle

If you enjoy a variety of hairstyles, you will have to stop layering them since they’ll become too time-consuming to change styles.

If you love putting your hair up, layered hairdos won’t cut it. Hair is cut at different levels and those layers represent a layer. Definitely, the layered cut is for women who like to have long hair that flows easily.

On the other hand, there’s no need to worry. There are many layered haircuts that can offer you a more lengthy look without compromising on the cut.They can also be useful if you’re looking to remove a few inches of damaged hair.

For ladies with short hair, the Wet-to-Dry Layers are a popular choice. They combine buoyant, rough textures with softer ones for flexible, natural looking hair. For those with shoulder-length hair or longer try out our Floating Bob or Bodywave styles.


Yes, I know you just watched a video on YouTube & think that making a layered haircut is easier than making a latte. But believe me, it’s just a misconception

I’ll test your knowledge: how do you position the scissors to do the layers?

Well, This technique can be applied differently depending on your hair type.

If your hair is curly, the layers should be at 45º. If it’s wavy, at 90º and if it’s straight – 180º. Yes, Geometry exists even for haircuts.

I think you might underestimate the importance of a good haircut. Cutting your hair with a pair of scissors and 2 or 3 hair clips won’t get you the perfect cut that you might be looking for. The best way to get a proper haircut is to come in for a consultation with a professional stylist.

If you want to trim your hair yourself, it is important that you have the right tools. Without a sharp pair of scissors & thinning shears, you risk damaging your hair. In addition, it’s always better to scout for at least several mirrors when cutting your own hair.

Another aspect of layering that is important to get right is that the layers need to be even and symmetrical.

To achieve that, you need to use the round layering technique. It’s a time-consuming process but it will make your hair look better by the end of it, without damaging your hair and messing up the cut


Throughout this article, I’ve explained the differences between layered vs non-layered hair.

I think you can draw your own conclusions today. Once you decide to get layers, they will affect more than just your ‘do.

What you want from your hair and how much time you have determines the style that is appropriate.

It defines you as someone who likes to keep changing her hairstyle.

Some people might think that layering is for them but it doesn’t mean they should risk cutting their hair themselves and get poor results.
