    I currently have waist length straight hair, and I'm a little bored of it, so I'm getting it cut and want a change.

    I'm thinking about a few inches below shoulder to mid back in terms of length. But I'm wondering if layers work for straight hair and have any point to them? I think they work really well for curly hair but I don't know about straight.

    My hair isn't thick or fine, it's just normal really, I just want it to have a little more shape to it.

    Any opinions?

    layers work especially well with straight hair as they break the hair up to give it more shape as straight hair can often look fat or lifeless. id definately go for layers and maybe get it feathered at the front so it frames your face or get a side fringe and a side parting so the hair sweeps slightly across the face.

    They definitely work with straight hair, especially naturally straight. When you straighten layers they can sometimes go a bit rubbish, but you won't have to worry about that (lucky cow :p:)

    I think layers in straight hair work better than those in curly hair.

    i've got dead straight hair - when i get it cut i usually just get choppy layers throughout; it adds depth otherwise my hair would be really boring...

    Thanks for your replies! Layers sound like a possibility then.
