Everyone told me how wonderful layers were, but I quickly found out why you shouldn't get layers in your hair. Layered hair looks great on some people, but I discovered they weren't for me. In fact, many women come to the same conclusion. It's a hard lesson to learn, but if you understand why you shouldn't get layers, you might not have to make the same mistake I did.
1. Too Full or Flat
Layers are designed to help thin out excess thickness or help boost volume, depending on the fullness and thickness of your hair. I wanted the extra volume. My first clue as to why you shouldn't get layers was how quickly my hair fell flat after I got my cut. The stylist did a wonderful job and it looked perfect when I left the salon. After the first wash, I never quite got the same fullness. I've discovered that some women have the opposite problem and get an unwelcome poof of volume.
