If you're looking to get a layered or shaggy haircut but don't know exactly what you want, you may feel a little bit intimidated to finally get that haircut. Layered hairstyles are great for those looking to add volume to flat hair. It doesn't matter whether you are looking for an elegant, spunky or carefree haircut, There are some great layered hairstyles to choose from.

Short Shag Hairstyle

This hairstyle is making a comeback among both men and women. Renowned for its simplicity and manageability, the short shag hairstyle is a great look for those who don't feel like spending hours primping and preening in the morning. Because the short shag hairstyle is designed to be messy, it offers those who wear it a freedom to show who they are and wear their hair naturally while still looking great.

Long Shag Hairstyle

Although the long shag hairstyle isn't quite as carefree as the short shag hairstyle, it is a great look for those who want to express themselves through their hair. Because the hairstyle is a layered cut, the long shag hairstyle gives volume to those who have very thin and straight hair. Because shag hairstyles are layered so that a majority of the hair is concentrated at the crown of one's head, this cut is great for short people who are looking to add a little bit of height to their stature.

The Spiral Shag Haircut

The spiral shag is the most spunky of the shag haircuts. The hair is shoulder-length, cut unevenly so that some of it rests just above the ears. This spunk comes at a cost: the spiral shag haircut must be arranged with hands rather than a comb, blown dry and carefully conditioned. The spiral shag must be trimmed frequently to maintain its unique, spunky look.

Long Layers

Long layers can create an elegant look for thin hair lacking body. You can choose from two types of layers: smooth or choppy. Smooth layering can create a fluid, formal look while choppy layers will create a punky and whimsical look similar to shag haircuts. Long layers can create dramatic facial framing, allowing your face to stand out from your mane of hair. Consult your hairstylist before getting a long choppy layered haircut, because the overall look of the cut will depend on your hair type.
