Some tips for styling choppy layered hair include using hair wax and salt spray and creating waves with a flat iron or hair dryer. These products and techniques help accentuate the layers in the hair and add volume.
Using hair wax on choppy hair creates separation between pieces of hair which accentuates layers. To apply hair wax, work a penny-sized amount through the hair, starting at the roots and working down. For added texture, scrunch sections of hair after applying wax.
For people with straight hair, a flat iron can be used to create waves. This gives layered hair an undone and tousled look. To achieve this look, start by taking small sections of hair. Insert a section into the flat iron and twist the flat iron 180 degrees, then pull. A hair dryer can also be used to create a similar look. Simply twist a section of wet hair and blow dry. When all of the sections are done, run hands through the hair to separate the waves.
For hair that tends to fall flat quickly, it is important to use hair spray after styling. Additionally, a salt spray on the ends of the hair adds even more texture.
