Smile Layers Vs. All One Length?

I am curious as to how many people in the LHC have layers vs. one length hair. I have read that one length hair is stronger and grows better. Currently I have layers but I am trying to grow it all out into 1 length.
What is your current hairstyle type?
all one length
short layers
long layers
all one length plus bangs

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I'm trying to grow my hair out to all one length. The layers tend to get a lot of splits, which show up very nicely against the dark, and also the shorter hairs like to frizz out away from the body of my hair. I personally think that all one length of hair looks healthier and more beautiful, but that's (of course) just my own opinion.

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

Right now I have some long layers in the front and I'm growing out my bangs. Although the layers look okay, they're kind of annoying because they pop out of braids and buns. I think I'll eventually get everything evened out.

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I have long layers in the back, and a few on either side of my face in the front. I liked them back when I wore my hair down all the time. Now I'd LOVE to have it all on length so I could get buns and things to work without having spikey ends jutting out in all directions.

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I just think layers look better, especialy when hair is down. also, having layers would lessen the strain on the scalp and make hair look more full and um.. 'bouncy' on top would it not? Well maybe that's just my hair... and the downside is that the longest parts do get scraggely when long... um.. now i'm not so sure....

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I have short layers because my hair is fine and I am a 2 c type off hair and without the layers the top hair is realy weighted down.

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I have layers and bangs that I'm growing out. I want 1 length and no bangs. Just my preference. It's hard for me to have nice looking braids with no hairs popping out if I keep layers.

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I feel a blunt cut is best for my 1C hair. I've done the layer thing and hated it. Other hair types seem to work better for layers. When I had layered they severely hindered my ability to do nice single braids and buns. I had those nasty little ends sticking out all over. Also styling layers in straight hair took more time and caused more damage than I was willing to deal with. I think if I ever had mid back hair again and was going to wash/condition/style it every day again I might consider some layering up front. I'd never layer the back again. Layers just didn't work for me. The wavier/curlier hair types seem to love them and I can see how they would work with curls.

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I am growing out a short, layered cut, so I voted for short layers. However, as my hair grows out, I intend to have long layers cut in. I had BSL one length hair before, and without layers, my long hair just hangs there. No style, no nothing. A few layers help me with volume, movement and styling (I work in a professional environment, so I will probably style my hair forever).

Just my ever-so-humble opinion

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I have long layers and bangs that I am currently trying to grow out. They go through their stages where they will look good one day and horrible the next. But I do know that I never want them again.

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I have short layers that I am trying to grow out. I think I am going to get some length first, though. If I kept trimming to one length, I'd be in a bob for years.

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I have all one length with long bangs that I have been growing out for almost a year.

I've always, always,always had long layers in my hair. Everytime I'd go in for a cut at a salon, they stylist would tell me that my hair neeeeds layers. "Its so heavy and thick, it neeeeeds layers for movement."

I do like how layers look when I wear my hair down. They really do bring out the waves almost to the point I'm curly. But, I rarely wear my hair down and they are horrible to try and do updos and braids with.

Now, if I can just figure out what to do with these dang bangs of mine.....

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

I have very long layers that I'm trying to grow out. It looks good when its left down but when I try to do many updo's the different lengths make it sometimes sloppy.

I rarely wear my hair down anymore as I get so many tangles on the underneath hair. The underneath hair is fine and silky and straighter and tangles easy while the rest is med/coarse and much wavier.

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

My hair pic is in my profile. I've got long layers as the result of a very destructive bleach highlighting episode. I had to have the broken ends cut off and this resulted in long layers. Recently I had a good few inches taken off the length to get rid of some of the bottom layers. My goal is to get back to all one length again. I want someone to slap me if I ever inquire about coloring, perming, or bleaching my hair in the future!

Re: Layers Vs. All One Length?

My hair tapers as it gets closer to my face so I guess I have a few layers.
