Cuts and Styles to Show Off Curly Hair Layers

Finding the perfect haircut can be difficult, especially when you have curly hair. Because everyone’s curl pattern and density are different, it’s not always as easy as showing up to the salon and getting exactly what you see on Instagram.

With that being said, there are some specific cuts that work well for curly hair, one being curly hair layers! If you’re deciding whether layers are for you or not, keep reading for why curly hair layers are so great for curls and some inspiration pictures to bring to your next appointment!

Are curly hair layers for me?

If you have curly hair, chances are a layered cut could work for you! Layers are ideal for curly hair because they add body and mega volume. Plus, because there isn’t as much weight pulling down on your strands, your curls are more likely to hold their shape and spring!

Keep in mind though that there are many different layered cuts for curly hair and that’s why it’s so important to talk with your stylist before starting the cut to set expectations and form an understanding of what your end result will look like.
