The Look: BOUNCY LAY­ERS

Good Housekeeping (Philippines) - - Your Look -

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!”

I find that this lay­ered style makes moms like me more youn­glook­ing.”
