Before moving to the inspo-part, let’s answer the main today’s question first: “What is feathered hair?”. A feather cut was meant to resemble a bird’s feather with its variety of layers and finely shaped ends that stick out, producing a voluminous, full look. It’s achieved by cutting hair in a V-shape, creating shorter and lighter layers at the center of the head, and gradually longer ones to the sides.

Don’t get confused if you find out that feathered hair cuts and layered cuts have a lot in common. Actually, a feather cut is a razored, more eminent variation of layered haircut as it involves shaping the ends in the way they are lighter than the overall look. And a layered cut is characterized by different lengths that seamlessly fall on one another all over the chevelure.

In the 70s and 80s feathered hair was the desired salvation that could put an end to thin hair troubles. Yet, a step cut was already onstage, so many people tended to mix up these two. Just keep in mind that step cuts feature choppier layers that involve lots of graduated visible steps of hair which are less smooth and blended than ones of feathered cuts.
