Long layered hairstyles look fantastic even if they are simple. If you’re lucky enough to have long hair but are unsure about how to style it, you’re in the right place.

Not everyone can manage to grow their hair long. Some simply can’t surpass a “genetic length”, others struggle with brittleness, and sometimes, long hair can just be a burden — it is literally heavy. If you’re in the last group, layered cuts are the best solution. You can grow your hair to envious lengths without the heaviness that all that hair carries with it.

Here are 80 of the most beautiful, eye-catching long, layered hairstyles for your inspiration.

The Main Principles of Successful Long Layered Hairstyles

  • A layered haircut adds volume to long hair and allows for flexibility when styling. Ask your hairdresser for long layers at the back and smooth, graded layers to frame the face. You can balance the layers with long bangs that can be styled to either side or straight.
  • Don’t forget about the details. Consider your personal style when choosing layers. Long layers that blend with one another look smooth and sleek, while a long shag hairstyle looks more undone and messy.
  • When cutting the layers framing your face, cut the shortest layer so that it highlights the most flattering point on your face—most often the cheekbones or the chin.

Chic and Trendy Layered Hairstyles for Long Hair

Although this look has long been the classic symbol of a bohemian style, long hair can fit any style and personality. Check out the list of great styles below.

#1: Reddish Brown Style with Long V-Cut Layers

The “V” shaped cut is a classic for women with long hair. Focusing on layering provides more dimension as shorter front pieces cascade into longer pieces. Face-framing bangs and long hairstyles with layers are versatile and work great with curly, wavy, and straight textures.

#2: Mid-Back Brown U-Cut with Swoopy Layers

A blunt, long length U-shaped cut emphasizes thickness and density. By incorporating long layers, you can make your tresses appear polished and sleek, while shorter, choppy pieces enhance body and texture. It’s a beautiful haircut idea you can suggest to your stylist on your next visit.

#3: Short, Medium, and Long Layers

Layers are one of the easiest ways to make long hair look fabulous. Ask for some short, medium, and long layers throughout the length or your hair. The multiple layers give your hair movement, making it easier to style. Try out some messy braids and buns, shaggy ponytails, and even faux bobs or fake bangs.

#5: Multi-Layered Mix

This is the ultimate goal for any woman with long hair who wants a sleek, chic cut that provides body and movement. The mixture of layers is the secret ingredient. Take note of how the shortest layers only exist to frame the face, other than that, most of the layers are mid-length.

#6: Waist-Length Brunette Hair with Textured Layers

Long, straight, layered hair usually requires more care and maintenance than curly tresses, since you have to build up the textures and fullness. By using thinning shears to blend the ends of each section, your stylist can create a sense of fluidity that gives the impression of even longer hair.

#7: Long Hair with Subtle Layers

The layers in this cut are almost imperceptible as they seamlessly blend together. This is a perfect haircut for someone who doesn’t want to lose any length and prefers an illusion of layers rather than obvious ones.

#8: Long Waves

Without healthy layers, long hair can sometimes seem heavy or lifeless. Layers reveal the texture of long locks in a natural way. When it comes to styling, there are all kinds of ways to rejuvenate those lengthy tresses, starting with some simple, casual beach waves.

#9: Long Tousled Layers

This is a beautiful, bedhead look reminiscent of Brigitte Bardot. Combine long locks with bangs—the heavier, the better—and add some tousled curls. How sexy is this ‘do?

#10: Long Layered Ombre Hair

Snag this style by asking your stylist for short layers and long ones, but none in between. Extreme layers are ideal for fine hair because they add so much movement and volume. This style will take your ponytail to the next level!

#11: Messy, Loose Curls with Voluminous Bangs

To achieve this voluminous hairdo, use different barrel sizes when curling your hair, alternating the direction of the curls. Your hair will look amazing without being overdone. For a sexy touch, go for messy side bangs by teasing them and curling the ends backward.

#12: Volume-Adding Layers for Straight Hair

Does any attempt at curling your hair fall flat within minutes? Consider a long, layered cut for its volume-boosting powers. With just a few strategically chopped layers, your hair gets a much-needed boost and instant volume. Some call it magic, but we call it smart styling.

#13: Straight Layered Hair

Long layered haircuts are easy to style and very versatile. You can throw your hair up in a bun when you’re running late, or keep it straight and simple. The V shaped haircut adds more movement to thick hair. If your tresses are naturally straight, use a deep conditioner and let them air dry after washing. They will look silky smooth with minimum effort. If your hair is on the curly side, blow dry it using a large, round brush. Don’t use too much hair spray in order to avoid crunchy hair.

#14: Long Layered Light Chocolate Brown Cut

A deep “V” cut is perfect for women with thicker hair types who want movement and depth. If your hair has a finer texture, you might prefer to select a different feathered style that doesn’t remove as much bulk.

#15: Shorter Stratified Strands

When it comes to layered haircuts for long hair, this one packs a dramatic punch by showing off locks of all lengths. With all these layers, coiffing a simple ponytail is no easy feat, so select this cut if you usually wear your hair down most of the time. The bright side? This style looks amazing with some serious highlights.

#16: Long Choppy Cut with a Sprinkling of Layers

When it comes to cutting layers, you don’t have to go for a dramatic length difference. Hair layers come in all different forms. Have your stylist cut them very light and sparse throughout your hair. You’ll get the same amount of movement, but spend less time styling afterwards.

#17: Extra Long Cut with Face-Framing Feathers

Long, lean and sexy; this center-parted, feathered haircut is a lovely frame for your face shape. Caramel brown highlights compliment layered haircuts for long hair because the blend of warm and cool tones brings out the steps of layers. If you keep your hair healthy by trimming the ends every couple of months, it can grow to the sultry waist length.

#18: Choppy Layers with Highlights

Long layered hairstyles can also feature shorter choppy layers. Highlights make the look even more glamorous but stick to blonde or chocolate shades that are close to your natural hair color. To achieve this look, blow dry your hair with your head down to get a lot of volume. Touch up the ends using a big curling iron or a blow drier and a round brush. Set everything with some hair wax or a shine product.

#19: Swoopy Flipped Layers for Long Hair

Graduated haircuts are a great choice for women with dry and damaged hair because they promote hair health. When an end begins to split, it slowly creeps up the length of the hair until it reaches the midshaft. The results are frizzy, unsightly split ends at various lengths. Cutting sections can remove some of these split ends without making the hair too short.

#20: Classic Layers for Volume and Bounce

Want your hair sway as you move? Long hairstyles with layers make your locks seem much fuller and let your long layers blend well together so you can wear beautiful free-flowing styles. Break out your curling iron to form romantic ringlets that will bounce freely behind you. Part your hair down the middle for a nice curtain-likee face-framing.

#21: Extra Long Layered Cut for Thick Hair

Coarse, thick hair is textured and multidimensional. Curling the tresses of thin and lifeless hair, and layering the length of the waves, lets your stylist create a haircut that generates movement and bounce. The medium brown color with a copper balayage also adds depth and volume to the flattest of hair.

#22: Long Hair with Angled Swoopy Pieces

Long haircuts tend to lack structure, so try flipping the ends of the individual tiers by using a straightening iron. When you strategically cut short layers on long hair you create shape and depth. The honey-blonde balayage and bronde base tone also help to give a sense of structure and volume.

#23: Long Layered White Blonde Hair

The long layers of the chest-length haircut seem so effortless thanks to the white blonde balayage and shadow roots that make the hair seem so sleek, smooth, and dimensional. You can show off the spectacular color by wearing black clothes; the contrast will make your hair pop.

#24: Wavy Wheat Blonde Shag with Bangs

If you are looking for a long, layered haircut with bangs that won’t make you look like a little girl, try a wavy shag with a center part and curtain bangs. The tousled hairstyle will enhance your wavy texture, giving you a sassy rock ‘n roll appearance. The warm honey blonde color brings out its sun-kissed flair.

#28: Long Haircut with Swoopy Layers

Flipped ends can give long layered haircuts an extra dimension that keeps your straight hair looking healthy and vibrant. A balayage customized for your hair type makes a huge difference. The style is versatile enough to be combed back without any defined part line.

#29: Long Feathered Strawberry Blonde Cut

The feathering technique is a method of cutting hair that implements slight graduating slices to create a steady sense of flow and length. It’s an option that does a great job of bringing fluidity to hair that is all one color.

#31: Black and Brown Layered Cut

Who says a blunt choppy haircut has to be plain? Most of the dark brown and black hair is all one length, and the rest of the hairstyle has just a few very fine layers concentrated at the crown, creating deviation without reducing bluntness.

#35: Long Layered Brunette Hair with Curled Ends

Long layered hair with bangs is a popular trend that looks wonderful on long, straight to wavy textures. When cutting the hair short, curls have a tendency to spring upwards into a “moppy” fringe. These types of cuts are easy to style into updo’s and downdo’s and have an extra air of sophistication with blow-dried or straightened bangs.

#42: Brunette V Cut for Thick Straight Hair

If you’re not sure how to style your long, thick, straight hair, there’s no need to complicate things. Forget waves and bright highlights; simply cut it into a V-shape that has two or three basic layers. This way you create texture, symmetry and visual interest while keeping it low-maintenance and easy to style with a blow-dryer.

#44: Face-Framing Layers

Here’s one of the most flattering hairstyles for long hair, no matter its color or texture. The cut blends longer layers with the rest of the hair, but the layers that really matter are the ones framing the face. For long length, they usually start at the chin.

#46: Long Feathered Layers for U-Shaped Cut

For long hair, there are many different styles you can try. But one of the best ways to bring life back into your tired locks is to add in long layers. If you have straight or loose wavy hair, try a U-shaped cut that allows your layers to fall perfectly.

#47: Long Tousled Voluminous Hairstyle

There are a myriad of hairstyles that are perfect for long tresses of all different weights and textures. Even thick curly hair can go from polished and tame to tousled and messy, simply by light brushing or shaking out curls. The rich dark brown color is classic and versatile.

#48: Warm-Toned Brown Hair with Caramel Balayage

Haircuts for long hair can extend from the middle of the shoulder blades all the way to the small of the back. Highlighting the entire length of the hair shaft can cause damage, and it’s harder to maintain. Combat the problem by opting for a balayage technique where small strands are bleached and colored only at the ends.

#49: Full Voluminous Layers

Showcase your layers and give your hair some much-needed bounce by spritzing your roots with a volumizing root-lifter. The volume will also differentiate your layers even more and make them more noticeable.

#57: V-cut Layers for Straight Thick Hair

If you have straight thick hair, there are several hairstyles for long hair that could work for you without looking or feeling too heavy. One of the best, however, is cutting layers into a V-shape. The cut thins down and shapes well even the thickest hair. Style straight so you can really see the movement and dynamics within your gorgeous tresses.

#58: Blunt Cut with Layers for Long Hair

Long straight hair will only benefit from layers and face-framing bangs. Such a haircut will suit pretty much all face shapes. In addition, it will make the natural flow of your hair softer and catchier. A blunt cut will also enliven your ends and give your hairdo a more attractive look.

#59: Heavily Layered Face-Framing Strands

A good thing about long layered hairstyles is that you can choose to go light or heavy on the amount of layers you cut. Heavily cut styles give you an opportunity to try face-framing bangs that work well with thick, long hair in undone hairstyles. Play around with the shape of your next cut and find that right amount of layers for you.

#61: Classy Layers for U-Shaped Cut

While we have no doubts that long layers are a great option, we understand some of your hesitations. For starters, it takes some time to grow out, and you may be worried that your blowout won’t look as polished as it does with your blunt chop. But, when dried with a round brush and some smoothing cream, those texture-boosting layers are refined to create a cool U silhouette.

#62: Edgy V-Line Layers

Contrary to popular belief, no matter the length, a mane with layers can be edgy. Case in point: this style. The way these locks were cut lets the ends curl towards the center and create an offbeat V-line. Get this look by wrapping the bottom portion of your hair around a thick curling iron.

#63: Brown Blonde Hair with Long Layers

#65: Balayage for Long Layers

As much as you love the idea of long layers, do you find that they tend to be high maintenance? If that’s the case, try a different kind of cut, like these subtle layers.

It will look equally great with beachy waves or a polished blowout.

Long layered haircuts are practically made for curls. The layers help the curls last longer and hold better.

Loose braids, worn overnight, also do the trick.
