Layering removes length from the interior of the hair, giving it more volume. Texturizing removes weight or bulk by using special scissors, which keeps the length and reduces bulk. A point cutting technique can also be used to take extra weight from the ends to help the hair move more freely.

What is textured layered hair?

When both layers are added to the hair and bulk is removed through the interior.

What is the difference between a layered bob and a textured bob?

Same as the above answer about layers.

Is texturizing hair bad?

If the hair is texturized too much, it can destroy the shape of the haircut, making it difficult to manage. Also, you have to be very careful when texturizing curly or frizzy hair, as it can make it frizzier or unmanageable.

Does texturizing thin your hair?

If overdone, yes.

Is texturizing the same as thinning?

Basically yes, but different scissors are used to dictate the amount of texturizing to avoid the hair looking thin or transparent.

What advice can you give our readers?

What is internal layering of hair?

Also known as invisible layers, internal layers are a brand new technique that gives a totally new take on layering. While regular layered haircuts involve cutting off extra weight throughout the hair, internal layering hits only specific sections of hair and deals with less weight. Also, in contrast to classic layers, this technique doesn’t result in apparent steps, as it’s usually done underneath the top layer of hair. Just like any other layering method, the internal layering gives more texture and volume, but in a moderate, invisible way.

What does layering hair do?

There are different layering techniques, and each of them evolves and changes with time. Still, all those choppy, graduated, invisible, and feathered layers are meant to work on a woman’s specific texture, providing the hair with a balanced shape, edgy ends, and volume throughout the hair. The best thing is, you can always tailor layers to your needs, that’s why this technique splits into so many types.

What is the difference between long layers and short layers?

When it comes to choosing between long and short layers, the length is not what you put at stake. In layering techniques, long and short refers to the height of layers, not to the length they’re cut to. The distance between the longest ends and shorter layers is what determines the height of layers. So, long layers are usually 2 – 3 inches in between, whereas shorter ones may go within 1 – 2 inches. As for the visual difference, long layers give an edgier, more dramatic look for those who’d like to shape their thick textures. Short layers, on the other hand, work best on women with fine hair, giving them a soft lift.

What are graduated layers?

Graduated layers are haircuts done by cutting the hair at an acute angle to achieve a step-like graduated shape. The structure of such haircuts usually features three sections of layers: the crown, the mid-lengths, and the bottom sections that differ in length and thus have a textured look. Since graduated cuts involve chopping off the extra weight at the ends, they give an accentuated sharp look to the edges.
