View Full Version : Pics of Hip/Waist length hair with layers please

December 2nd, 2011, 04:59 AM
So I finally made an appointment with a stylist who specialises in curly hair for the end of this month. This is my "cape" at the moment - hair is looking a little drab in this photo as I went back to cones and I'm not sure if that was the best thing to do:

The best part of my figure is my waist and I feel that my hair now hides it rather than accentuates it which it used to when it was shorter.

But I love the length so I'm thinking that layers might be the go.

Can anyone with hip/waist length hair and layers post some pictures? I am hoping to take something with me to the hairdresser so please only post if you are comfortable with me printing off the image and taking it to the hairdresser to show her what I would like.

Hope this is ok with everyone...

i have some in my album with layers, but layers means V usually :)

This is my hair at just past waist. Your hair looks similar to mine! Anyway, I know what you mean about your waist and your hair hiding it. You can just see mine in this pic and if it was 1 in shorter, the hemline would probably accentuate my waist even more.

This pic is from the beginning of Nov. and now it covers my waist. I think I like the look of the taper at waist better.

Hope that helps! Good Luck!

Unfortunately I don't have any photos but I just thought I'd say your hair would look beautiful with layers, my dream hair in fact! Good luck!

You could check out my album, I have a lót of (growing out) layers. Don't know if any of them would be of any help though, I should really get some better photos of the back of my head:p

I have some in my album. I think the pics starting mid Oct have me with the layers.

Here are a few that show the layers I had the best.

I have one pic in my album when it was permed and had lots of layers. The quality of the pic is pretty bad though.

My siggy - I have a bigger version in my Album :)

Thanks everyone, those pictures are great. Makes me think that layers are the way to go for me.

My appointment is December 21st so I'll get another half inch of growth by then. I'll post pics when it's done...

ive no photos as I have one length hair but just wanted to say I enjoyed the photos and hope you enjoy your layers. I love layers but alas my hair isn't thick enough to take them.

You are more than welcome to borrow pics of my de facto layers in my album. Mine are just the result of growing thick hair out from a wedge type cut without trims, so the last 8-10 inches are layered

Julliams, you have my dream hair. I know you've said the color is natural. The color & your waves and curls, awesome. Looking forward to seeing it with layers.

December 2nd, 2011, 05:36 PM
Julliams, your hair is very similar to mine. Same length and same texture/thickness. I have layers, not very many and they are long layers, so you can check out my album. :flower:

Of course, on second thought my layers don't look that great in my pictures... and mine are grown out from a short do..

I used to like to look at my waist-length hair from the side because the ends were in free-fall - didn't touch my body at waist. It wasn't layered though. Well, maybe a little. I forget.

December 2nd, 2011, 08:05 PM
I wish my ends were free-falling. . .that is my dream but, i think my curls steal this ability. Does only thick hair aquire this look at waist, because if so, I will definitly go for it if my hair ever gets there! My hair is surely thick enough, it is certainly thick enough for layers! Oh i have never had waist length hair..wish i knew how long it would take to get there from BSL. . ..

Recently had mine cut into heavier layers. Current cut is my siggy. My hair is so dark, you can't see the layers well, but they are blended and start at my collarbones.

Check my hair album. :)

My siggy has waist length hair with layers. I had just come from the salon when I took that pic, so it's not as curly as it would normally be. You might find your hair gets curlier with some of the weight taken off - mine does!

Here's mine
Not bad for an old lady
