With a new season comes the appeal of a fresh new hairstyle…and the challenge of choosing the right one. We want to make sure that you know exactly what your options are. Here’s the scoop on two of the hottest looks…check them out so that you can ask for your new cut by name!
Let’s take a closer look at two of the most popular ones: layered hairstyles vs. chopped hairstyles.
Layered haircuts are composed of rows of hair that are different lengths. Each row is cut to a certain length that is slightly longer or slightly shorter than the row above or below. When these rows are styled together, they can create a gorgeous illusion that adds warmth and personality, or a provocative uniqueness to your hair.
One example would be a cut that goes from shorter at the jawline to longer the base of the neck. In this example, the variation between the ends gently layered atop one another gives the appearance of added thickness. Another example would be a cut that goes from shorter at the nape of the neck to longer at the crown. In this example, the variation between the layers gives an edgy, asymmetrical look.
The chop is composed of sections of hair that are different lengths. The hair is usually separated into sections depending on the length of your hair, and then each section is clipped in a seemingly random and chaotic way. These types of cuts are best done by experienced stylists because they take years of practice to master. There is a method to the seeming madness. When the sections are styled together the result is usually quite bold, complex, and beautiful.
Cameron Diaz is the queen of choppy hairstyles. The blond choppy bob she’s known for is an excellent example. In this example, her hair is cut in choppy sections around the face, ears and at the ends. It gives the appearance of being endlessly fun, funky and carefree.
Keeping Up the Hairstyle
Whether you prefer layered hairstyles or choppy hairstyles, the key with both is regular maintenance so that they don’t grow out and look unkempt. These haircuts are true art when done well by a talented master stylist who is passionate about hair design.
