The Look: BOUNCY LAYERS
An advertising creative-turnedentrepreneur, 48-year-old Daisy Estevanez is all too familiar with the fast-paced life, and this translates to her ’do. “I’ve been wearing my layered style for most of my life because for me, it’s the easiest and fastest to style every day,” she says. “I can simply air-dry it for a relaxed look, blow-dry for extra volume, or iron if I want to look extra polished.” She likes how the shaggy layers give her look a fresh edge, and lets her get away with a disheveled mane. “I actually find short hair more difficult to style; you can easily see a hair out of place!”
MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU: Compared to a one-length style, “a layered cut gives hair more body and bounce, especially for those with thin or fine hair,” says makeup artist and hairstylist Muriel Vega Perez. Long layers—starting from the jaw downwards— can also elongate a round face, whereas too short layers have the opposite effect. Just make sure to maintain volume in the lower sections of your hair, and not the sides of your head, if you want a slimming effect. Says Daisy, “I find that this style can be both feminine and sexy, depending on how I wear it. The fact that it helps slim down my cheeks is a plus!”
