How to grow out a bad-layered haircut? To cut or not to cut, that’s the question

There’re two ways to grow out a bad-layered haircut: one is to test your creativity with hairstyles and patience. The second is to use scissors.

  • If you’re willing to use scissors to grow out a bad-layered cut, the first step is to tidy up. This means disguising the frizzy ends. You won’t sacrifice the length of your hair. It’s just a matter of thinning the layers so that the hair will grow out with a shape.
  • If you don’t want to use scissors, the only solution is to use different hairstyles. In a few moments, I’ll give you some interesting and fun ideas.

I live it every day in my salon.

Many women arrive, almost on the verge of a nervous breakdown, because their layered cut resulted disastrously.


Cutting hair is an art. We, stylists, study a lot to do it and get good results.

We’re not talking about a simple trimming of the ends, which also has its complexity.

 We’re talking about a layered cut. To make it look perfect, you need to understand even the natural movement of your hair. 


I really understand.

You wanted a layered cut to look prettier and to give your mane another movement. However, when you look in the mirror, you don’t recognize yourself.

You feel it’s not your style. Also, you don’t know how to style your hair. The strands seem to have taken on a life of their own.

Do you know what’s the worst mistake women make when they get a haircut?

In most cases, we decide it driven more by our emotions than by logic.

 We get a haircut because we change jobs, suffer a disappointment in love, want a change, or a before and after in our lives. 

Then, you make the wrong decision: to cut your hair.


As you don’t want to waste another minute, you watch a few tutorials on YouTube, take a pair of scissors, and make the first cuts on your hair.

After a few minutes, you realize that a layered cut wasn’t as easy as you saw on YouTube.

And in those moments, you realize that you can’t turn back the clock. The hair that was cut can’t be reattached. It’s as simple as that.


However, there’re some solutions.

I’ll ask you for something you didn’t have when you decided to cut your hair in layers, and it turned out to be a disaster.

I’ll ask you to be PATIENT and STAY CALM because the solution is on its way.

Curl your hair

It can be a permanent curl. In that case, you’ll have to go to a professional because perming is a professional technique in which chemicals are used.

If you don’t want the curls to be permanent, you can use a curling iron or even a flat iron to create cute and fun temporary curls.

This waving option will help disguise the unkempt layers of your hair.


Use a wet look hairstyle

It’s a great option, and you’ll only need to use hair gel. Always apply the gel to damp hair and comb it back.

You’ll notice a huge difference, and you won’t even remember the bad-layered cut.



When faced with a bad-layered cut, you have two options: either you can straighten the layers by thinning them with scissors or you can style your hair using accessories, gels, or even curling for darling curls.

If you choose to thin the layers, I advise you to go to a professional to avoid sacrificing inches of your hair.
