In this tutorial, we learn how to cut layers into hair: the basics. Start out with dry hair and brush it out thoroughly. After this, grab the back of the hair and use a small comb to comb out from the head. Hold the hair at an angle, then cut it diagonally. Continue to do this for the hair on the back of the head so you create a bunch of layers in the back. This is a short look, so you may have to cut a lot of hair off in the beginning to get to the top of the head. Create a bob on the front of the hair by angling it towards the back. After this, style how you would like and you have a beautiful new short layered look.
