One of the most versatile and easy to cut and care for styles is the uneven look. You can ask your hairdresser to cut your hair in uneven layers and then cut it back evenly if you don’t like it. It’s a good transition style too if you trying to grow out your hair. Try a few of these tips to cut unevenly layered hair.

Comb your hair straight with a part down the middle. Do this when it is wet and check out the various lengths, or lack of variety, that is there already. If you have some uneven layers, you may want to use those as a base for your new look.

Decide where you want the various lengths to hang on your head. Consider options with your hairdresser, or if you are going to cut it yourself. Think about an asymmetrical style that is shorter on one side, or if you want the variations to work down from your crown.

Cut each layer straight at first. After you get your lengths in the proper place, you can go back and cut into each layer to give your style an uneven look.

Use scissors that are uneven and choose clumps of hair to cut into. Take regular scissors and cut v-shapes back and forth across each layer with no thought to keeping it the same all over.

Put your hair in little patches of hair rubber bands all over your head. This is a great way to cut unevenly layered hair by yourself. Cut off each little ponytail about an inch or so from the edge. Untie the bands and let it hang. Touch up really out of place hairs around your face and let the rest hang freely.
