Celebrities often have the most-attractive hairstyles. Some have their own hairstylists to make their hair look beautiful, both on- and off-camera. Celebrities who wear layered hairstyles do so to add texture and depth to their hair. Their layered hairstyles become their best accessories, which they flaunt wherever they go. Take a sneak-peak at some of the celebrities who are wearing their hair in layers and find out which style will suit you best.
Jennifer Aniston’s Long Straight Layered Hair
Jennifer Aniston is one of the most influential celebrities when it comes to fashion and hairstyles. Even when she was still acting as Rachel Green in the hit TV sitcom “Friends,” female fans would copy her hairstyles. The Rachel Cut (named after the character) hairstyle became popular. Jennifer’s hairstyles make some of the best water-cooler conversations among those who want to copy her style. It is no wonder that when Jennifer Aniston showed up with a long layered hairstyle that the many women who adore her wanted to copy her look.
To achieve the long straight, layered hairstyle, keep the hair length long so that there is room to work the layers from front to back. Create jagged cut layers in different lengths starting from the front and ending at the back. The front layers frame the jaw-line, adding smooth edges to soften your face. Allow the back length to fall down to mid-section giving it a U or V shape for a more dramatic finish. Keeping the hair sleek and straight will make this layered hairstyle a head-turner. Use a ceramic flat iron to straighten wayward or frizzy hair. Adding highlights will give your hairstyle contrast. The long straight layered hairstyle is ideal for women with oval, oblong, square, heart, diamond and triangular faces. Style your hair using paddle brush to keep it sleek and shiny. Apply styling mousse and light-hold spray to keep your hair looking beautiful.
Eva Longoria’s Sexy Layered Hairstyle
One of television’s sexiest females is “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria. Her sexy layered hairstyle complements her petite, sexy body well. The layered haircut is similar to Jennifer Aniston’s, but with the added waves. Using a large barrel curling iron, Eva’s hairstylist added waves to her layers to give her hair volume and more depth. Prior to using the curling iron, apply volumizing hair lotion. Brush hair to remove knots and tangles. Spray on liquid styling mousse, and then start curling. Start from the bottom, work your way up. Tousle your hair to loosen some of the tight curls. Applying medium-hold spray will help lock in the waves without stiffening.
Kimberly Caldwell’s Short Layered Hair
Singer Kimberly Caldwell’s “Mess of You” CD cover shows her with beautiful short layered hair. Her short, blond locks with edgy, uneven layers gave this former season two “American Idol” contestant the gutsy style, which complements her voice. To achieve the look, cut your hair at chin level. Create layers in asymmetric fashion, by parting the bags to one side and cutting one side longer than the other. Create edgy, uneven layers all around your head using a razor to make the ends sharper. Apply mousse or gel to style.
