This is a great haircut if you are working with long curly or wavy hair. One of the biggest problems with curly long hair is that the cut lies too flat at the top and explodes through the bottom; before you know it you resemble a Christmas tree. The layers will transform the curls, cascading the hair and making it look fuller from start to finish.
When your hair is straight and very thick the multi-layered look can also be a great haircut to use. It removes the excess weight from your hair making it easier to style. However, be careful not to cut the layers too short, all that extra weight removed will allow the hair to bounce up leaving you with a bowl shape at the crown.
