Haircut Tutorial – Long Length Layers

Please enjoy my highly requested long layers haircut. In this long altered haircut tutorial, I share my techniques on achieving the haircut as well as the blow dry technique. This haircut works great on straight or curly hair and can easily be styled with waves and curls.

veena singh says:

hello sir can u suggest us how to cut layered hair cut for long hair

Breanna Barquist says:

what type of shears do you use, and where do you get them from? I’m a hairstylist fresh out of school. So I don’t have too much knowledge of what professional shears are best.

nicolees21 says:

parvin zarrin says:

Thank you Steve for this video I always struggling with long layered so I found my weakness this is simple and helpful thanks again 🙂

Diana Navickas says:

Hi Stephen, I just used this video to cut my own hair and it’s perfect. My hair is about that length and I get tired of not getting what I want. Nobody understands that it take very little to cut my hair because it more fine than medium. I just followed this tutorial and it worked!!! My razor sharp scissors took a little slice out, as it’s kind of hard to cut your own hair, but no one will ever know. Thanks again for all your help.

nihal saat says:

Very nice.thank you for sharing

cavita k says:

thumbs up,,,

Mahmoud Ghoneim says:

You are the very best for me to follow. You explain things so well and you are helping people like me who are beginners even though I am soon to be 59! Mind you I did get student of the year at college in Brighton, UK in 2015 out of around 300 younger students! I only do a few older people at the moment, but with your help I will gain not only confidence but a proper grounding that I desperately need as I just can’t afford to go on expensive courses in London. I keep buying practice heads on ebay and I am using your techniques on them. I’m chuffed to bits to have found you. From Elaine.

Terry Parker says:

So beautiful, thank you.

Debbie Smith says:

Thanks so much salon guy! I have thick, baby fine curly/wavy hair. I cut my own hair using this method and it looks great, even when I roll out of bed in the morning!

Miss A says:

Is there a video for long layers on thin, fine textured hair?? This cut does not work for my hair type.

Samuel albritton says:

I’ve got the middle part layer hair cut, but when I do this hair cut on a side part, the balance is off. Can you upload a video on a side part long layered hair cut. We may just leave it unbalanced, I’m not sure. Thanks

Chrissy Huynh says:

It’s so beautiful, I’m tempted to cut my own hair! Literally obsessed with you!

Marisol Delgado Herrera says:

Dawn Kowal says:

Thank you for all the tutorials!

Theresa Guerra says:

Hi, loved the video. I am trying to figure out how to tell my stylist how I want my hair cut. I think your video has helped but would  like a bit of clarification. :)I have a very skinny long face shape and I love how the top layers were done in the video but I also need more hair along the perimeter and thickness in the bottom.  How would I describe this cut but only in the crown area only? Does that make sense? So many people have this cut and I love it but I need more hair in the lower areas. Please let me know how I should describe this….

Sulaine Turnbull says:

Stunning!! I’m WAY overdue for a haircut. My hair is too long and I’m ready to cut it off! I’m thinking it’s between this cut and your newer long hair layered cut. If only my stylist wasn’t on maternity leave…You do beautiful work!

Liana Sinicina says:

I love doing hair, I love your work

S Alexandrei says:

beautiful want my hair longer for that

Katerina Rich says:

That’s how my mom does it :)) I love it 😀

hermy benavidez says:

I want this hair cut. was this a two layer hair cut?

el Faust says:

Thanks again, SG! Am so thankful for your great instructional videos. Merry Christmas!

Sylvia Berlin says:

Dear Stephen, thanks for that great haircut. One question: On minute 7:19, you cut the first line in the front. How do I know what line I cut? Did you take a guideline from the sides? Greetings from Germany..

Laura Lamagoon says:

Lisa Vivola says:

sabrina groover says:

Kayt C says:

Looks great my only issue is blow dryig the hair towards the face I’m a student and was taught to dry away from the face. And personally I can’t stand when the stylist does that to my hair. But it does look awesome don’t get me wrong 🙂

That's Punny says:

Laura Lamagoon says:

thank you for your bravery!

Amy P says:

I always wondered how this is done.  Thank you for that!  Too bad I can’t do my own, I wouldn’t be able to see!  LOL! But it is very good to see how it’s supposed to be done.  My hair is thick and I prefer layers to keep it lighter.
