Blunt ends or layers? OK, so, I’ve totally done both at different stages in my hair life, and I’ve learned that if I want something easy and low maintenance, which I almost always do, it’s layers all the way, man.
Blunt ends give me so much grief! When I have long-ish hair with blunt ends and no layering, it doesn’t have any movement, so it lays heavy and flat and looks like a stiff stage curtain. And it FEELS heavy, too, like I’m carrying around five extra pounds of hair.
Oh, and don’t get me started on short blunt cuts. I had shoulder-length hair with blunt ends once when I was about 12, and my hair did that thing where the bottom puffs out into a triangle shape, so basically I walked around looking like the Great Sphinx of Giza.
I really didn’t have any idea what to do with my hair until I was in my early 20s, which was when I finally clicked with a good stylist.
How about you? For your hair, do you prefer blunt ends or layers?
