Asking your stylist for long layers is a great option for some relief this summer, as it releases weight and creates movement in the cut. This is great for: Pretty much anyone, your stylist can tailor long layers to suit you and your hair type.
2. Soft face framing
If you feel like your hair just hangs in your face, and prefer not to rock hippie look, ask your stylist to cut some face framing. This will open the haircut around your face and soften the overall silhouette. Bonus points because it’ll spice up any updo you might come up with to beat the heat!

3. Weight removal
If you’re someone who doesn’t to see a lot of layering in your locks, ask your stylist about removing weight from the interior of the haircut. This will make you feel lighter, and make your hair lay nicely without excessive styling. This is great for: People with thick, heavy, coarse, or curly hair. Let that hair breathe, honey!
