Add volume and shape to a tired hairstyle with our favourite layered looks

A layered hairstyle will instantly update your look, tranforming your face shape and hair type to reveal a better version of yourself.

A versatile look, layered hairstyles aren't just for long hair. Adding some choppy layers to your cropped hairstyle, or razor-sharp ends to your classic bob will revive a tired look instantly.

The great thing about a layered hairstyle is that you won't have to spend hours every morning styling your hair. Cleverly cut layers will add bounce, volume and movement to your hair - without the need for lengthy styling regimes.

So look through our favourite layered hairstyles and find one that is right for you...
