Chopped and layered hairstyles are nothing new. Shag hairstyles from the seventies incorporated chopped looks and layers as well. Chopped and layered hairstyles can be worn by both men and women and are best styled with texturizing products.
What is a Chopped or Layered Hairstyle?
Chopped hairstyles can be described as a haircut that is full of choppy layers or full of texture. Chopped hairstyles often have asymmetrical layering throughout hair to give it a messy look. Layered hairstyles are hairstyles that have different lengths cut into the haircut. Layers can be cut just around the face, subtly toward the bottom of the hair or all over.
Short Chopped Bob
Short chopped styles are popular for people of all ages. Women can wear a messy bed-head type look with short chopped styles. Women should ask their stylist to cut their hair shorter than shoulder length and then request short choppy layering throughout the haircut.
Long Layered Hair
Long layered hair is a very versatile hairstyle. Long layered hairstyles incorporate the length of your hair with shorter layers to add volume, body and movement into your hairstyle. Ask your stylist to leave your length but add in layers throughout hair and around your face.
Chopped and Layered Shag
Shaggy hairstyles are back from the past. Chopped and layered shag hairstyles should be worn below the shoulder. Then chopped layers should be cut throughout the hairstyle to give the hair a shaggy-like look.
Men's Chopped and Layered Hairstyles
Men can also wear chopped and layered hairstyles by asking their stylist to add texture and choppy layers into their current haircut. Many men’s haircuts can easily incorporate chopped texture. Chopped texture can be cut into hair if the stylist uses texturizing shears.
