Are you tired of the layers in your hair? Maybe you gave a layered hairstyle a try and decided you didn't like it. Maybe you just want something different. Maybe the layered look you received just isn't right for your hair type. Regardless, if you have layers and are ready to grow them out, consider one of these methods.
Get a drastic haircut. The quickest way to get rid of all your layers is to get a drastic haircut. Have your hair cut to the same length as the shortest layer, and let it grow out from there. The benefit to this method is that it quickly gets rid of your layers. However, it requires a pretty short hairstyle, especially if you started with a lot of short layers. If your layers are long, a chin length or even shoulder length bob should do the trick to keep your length and get rid of the layers. However, if your layers are shorter - such as ear length - you might end up with a good old-fashioned bowl cut, so choose carefully what is most important to you.
Just trim the ends, not the layers. Salon clients frequently would ask me to trim their ends, and not their layers so that their layers could grow out. This is great in theory since the layers keep growing while the ends keep staying the same. The problem with this method is that hair needs regular trims to keep it looking nice. If you don't get the layers trimmed up at all, they will start to look shabby and frizzy. In time, split ends and damage may result.
Get a shorter haircut. For my long-hair clients who want to grow out their layers, I recommend getting a good haircut. Take off a good three or four inches off the bottom so the layers look less drastic. A long bob is a great style to grow out layers, since it looks good with layers and without.
Trim it all up. Even when women want to grow out their layers, I still recommend they get their layers trimmed. The key is having more trimmed off the ends of the hair than is trimmed off of the layers of the hair. While this method is admittedly the slowest way to grow out your layers, it's the best for your hair. This will help keep all your hair in tip-top shape so that it - and you - look beautiful.
If growing out your layers seems like too much work, try a different layered style. Maybe you just need your layers adjusted a bit to get them to a shape that you love. Maybe you need more layers, less layers, choppier layers, or even more blended layers to help you style your hair well. If you are dissatisfied with your look, it might just be time to try something new, with layers or without.
