Three short hairstyles with layers for extra volume

If you’re thinking of layering up your short hairstyle, or even chopping off your long locks, it’s worth looking through some of the wonderful styles on trend right now. Adding layers to short hair can do wonderful things with volume and texture. And these looks remain cool and classic at any age. Here are three styles to inspire your own transformation.

A bob with beautiful layers

The bob is a flattering, universally popular cut that transcends geographical borders. And adding layers makes it bang on trend. Give the bob a modern twist with a cut that increases movement and volume. We doubt there’s anyone out there who doesn’t love this low-maintenance, high-impact style.

The Pixie cut

From Mia Farrow to Twiggy and from Victoria Beckham to Scarlett Johansson, the pixie cut has been a top celebrity style on the red carpet and behind the camera. Style it or leave it to wash and go, it draws attention to fine features and beautiful neck and shoulders. Perfect for summer nights or Christmas parties.

Short cut with movement

This hairstyle is sporty but elegant. The short side and back haircut is disconnected from the crown and at the top of the hair. The edges are cleverly texturised to allow the hair to move beautifully and the front area is left longer.

Short hair is fresh, fun and for any face shape. Regardless of your hair type, you’ll find a style you love that suits your life. So let’s hear it for the asymmetrical crop, the blunt bob and the punk cut and for all those other easy-to-keep, messy, stylish or glam short cuts we treasure.
