The year 2020 has taught us that low-maintenance haircuts are the absolute best. When salons closed because of the pandemic, most of us resorted to DIY hair makeovers just to make our current 'dos appear more presentable.

Those who got blunt haircuts, jumped on the "glass hair trend," and were team full bangs needed more help in maintaining their hair. The mentioned hairstyles, when they grow longer, tend to look heavy and weigh the face down.

To avoid the high-maintenance upkeep while we're still in quarantine, we suggest that you try hairstyles that look better as they grow longer: layered and shag haircuts! These styles provide a lived-in effect and the layers frame the face nicely: Your cheeks look slimmer and your strong jawline appears softer.

Ahead, check out the gorgeous hairstyle variations that feature layers!
