Short, layered cuts for men have been popular often throughout history. Hairstyles have changed over time, but layers have been an essential part of men's hairstyling for quite some time.
Since layering is defined as cutting the hair at different lengths, there are many ways to achieve a great look with short and layered hair. There are both classic cuts and more contemporary cuts. The style is especially useful for men with very thick or wavy hair. Layering can thin out thick hair and make it easier to style. It can also tame and train waves, allowing a more clean, slick or feathered look.
