"The most modern variation of layering is a slight angle around your face, usually starting around your chin and working its way down to the length," hairstylist to the stars Alex Brown told Glamour.
The idea is to keep the layers long and seamless to add texture and volume. The result? Movement sans sacrificing length.
"Blending the layers is very important—they have to be cut properly to look seamless," added Alex. "Using a technique to remove weight from the ends will make the layers appear very soft and blended."
Bonus: this cut also helps to enhance the definition in your face.
"How the hair frames and hits your face can completely change your overall face shape," Alex continued. "I love a layer that hits near the cheekbone to accentuate it."
