I Got a Layered Haircut, and My Hair Looks Completely Different (Not to Mention Fuller)

Jessica Harrington

I, like many people, often find myself feeling stumped before going to the hair salon. I'm always in the mood for a change, but not too big of a change; something that's easy to style and low maintenance (because I hate doing my hair), but still has a wow-factor - basically, I'm every hairstylists' most annoying client ever. (Kidding . . . sort of.)

Over the years I've worn my hair all sorts of ways - long, wavy, straight, in a bob, with bangs (if we count the straight-across look I sported in the '90s and the side bang I regrettably had, like everyone else, in middle school) - but during my recent trip to Sally Hershberger Nomad Salon in New York City, I found myself wanting a completely different look.

I cut my hair into a bob a few months ago but the style had grown out, and my hair was looking, in my opinion, pretty plain. It was all one length and because I have loose wavy hair, all of the volume was at the ends. Luckily, my hairstylist Anabel Santos knew just what I needed: layers. She described the look she wanted to give me as "face-framing layers mixed with long-layers for more movement and body while keeping the perimeter full."

See how the transformation went for yourself ahead.
