Next up is the timeless layered cut. It is consistently loved by Korean women and is perfect for adding dynamic textures to your locks. Talented hairstylists create layers of different lengths, distributing the weight of your hair and creating volume and movement. Hence, we recommend you bring a photo to direct the perfect style you wish, especially when you go for layered cuts, as the hairstyle covers a wide range of styles.
