Who it works for
This cut works beautifully on fine hair. It's a short, edgier twist on layers that give you more volume. Hair that's too thick ends up looking like a mullet.
Tell your hairstylist:
Instead of cutting on top of the hair, pull up the top layer and cut shorter, more angular pieces underneath.
Don't wash your hair everyday unless it's really oily. This style looks very "Bad Girl" when it's a little dirty.
Medium hair is generally defined as reaching from below the jawline to several inches below the collar, though
different stylists classify hair lengths differently. When choosing a paneled hair style for medium length
hair, it is important to consider not only the length of the hair, but also the shape of your face so you have
a style that best suits your features.
Paneling can add softness, distinction, and mystery to any style, depending on how they are cut and coordinated. Different features of medium layered styles include:
1 How the ends are tapered: Symmetrical, jagged, or angled ends can affect how the style lays on the head
and how it adheres to the face and shoulders.
2 Length of the top layer: Keeping the topmost layer the full length of the hair will smooth out the
style, while having different lengths throughout the style adds additional volume.
3 Total number of layers: A greater number of layers adds greater volume but may be more difficult to manage.
4 Curliness of the hair: Very curly hair will form natural waves that could cause layers to tangle.
How each of these features are combined can create vastly different styles, and a professional stylist can
help you decide which look may be best for you before cutting a single strand.
