50 Screenshot-Worthy Short Layered Hairstyles

20. Short Curly Haircut. One of the most adorable ways to style short layered hair is to curl the ends upwards. The “flipped” short layers will hold great when the strands are cut short. If you want to get some inspiration from the 1960s and make it modern, go for this coif!

Deciding to go for one of the current short layered haircuts is a brave move – you can’t just hide your hair in a messy bun if you don’t like it! That’s why it’s important to be clear on how you want it to look. Yes, you can get ideas from your stylist, but without having done your homework, you may end up with a hairstyle that’s not what you wanted – and then there’s no turning back! Lucky for you, we have compiled an extensive list of short layered hairstyles that are very trendy right now to inspire you for your next cut!

Why to go for layers? Layering is an effortless way to shape and add fullness to fine thin hair, but it can also remove bulk from the ends, distribute and reduce volume in thick wavy hair. Layers can also be adapted to flatter almost any face shape, building a universal cut many modern women embrace. Plus, they add a youthful vibe to the look – and who could say no to looking younger?!

1. Layered Pixie with Bangs. No list of short layered haircuts would be complete without a layered pixie! The long, side swept bangs are ideal for adding dimension – and are perfect for round faces.

2. Beautiful Bangs. There’s nothing we don’t love about short hair and bangs – it’s the perfect combo! Especially if the hair is layered and tastefully textured.

3. Wispy Layered Bob Cut. Classic but still on-trend short layered hair. This effortless-looking style gives your hair texture and creates a smooth flow of each strand. It’s especially flattering for ladies who have thin or fine hair.

4. Long Layered Pixie Cut. Growing out your pixie doesn’t have to be painful. This super cute cut is stylish and easy – and will look particularly good on fine curly hair.
