I know, I know—when you think of layered hairstyles, the first thing that comes to mind is probably the early 2000s emo punk look that was everywhere. I promise today’s layered hairstyles are nothing like what you use to see before. They’re chic, sleek, and extremely pretty— oh, and they instantly add volume, depth, and dimension to your hair. By adding layers throughout your haircut, you help give your hair extra texture and body, which makes your hair look thicker and fuller. I mean, sign me UP. So to give you some inspo for your next haircut, I gathered the 25 best layered hairstyle pics from Instagram, below.
