Ask any hairdresser if there's one style that genuinely suits everyone and chances are they'll tell you it's layered hair. A truly classic hairstyle, it's transitioned from the '70s shag through to the boho waves of the '00s with ease—and its popularity shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, name basically any celebrity and I'll show you a photo of them stepping out with layered strands. Of course, top of the list is Jennifer Aniston, aka the woman who has given us 25 years of amazing hairstyles (and basically all of them are layered). But there are plenty more celebrities with lovely layered styles that are well worth copying.
So without further ado, keep scrolling for 13 celebrities with the best layered hairstyles to copy right now. Plus, see the product recommendations to help you achieve the ultimate textured style at home.
This layered hairstyle is a Jen An classic with face-framing layers at the front and longer ones through the ends for beachy texture.

Halle's feathered fringe and soft, wavy layers look so beautiful for this Oscars style.
"Mixed Chicks make really great products for women with curly hair—I don't use anything else," Berry told Condé Nast Traveller. "When I want to keep my hair wavy I use the leave-in conditioner; to wear it straight I just wash it out with the regular conditioner."
Margot uses this dry shampoo to add texture and disguise when her roots are growing out. As for styling, she relies on the experts. "I feel like my hair looks rubbish most of the time but thankfully if I ever have an event to go to there is always a hairstylist to sort it out," she told Marie Claire.
When she's opting for a sleek style, Jourdan uses this serum to protect her hair. "I'll spray that on and then straighten it so it doesn't look all frizzy," Dunn told Into the Gloss.

This is my new wave wand of choice for creating smooth, tousled waves like Liv's.
Alexa swears by her hairdresser George Northwood for adding shape to her style through subtle layering. "We came up with the idea of 'Future Cuts' because I'm so weird about who cuts my hair," she told Into the Gloss. "For example, the plan was to grow out my fringe and then cut it short, so during that process, he's done less layering so it grows nicely."
If you have fine hair like Alexa, apply this to the ends of your hair to add lift without weighing down your roots or fringe.
Short hair looks incredible with layers. Just look at Kerry Washington's side-swept pixie cut as proof.

If you have naturally straight hair like Ratajkowski, try this pre-styling treatment to add texture. "My hair's really straight, so I have no curl at all, and getting a little bit of volume in it is super important," she told The Zoe Report. "And then I can kind of leave that for a couple of days."
I can't decide what I love more: Laura's bleached-blonde colour or her layered pixie-inspired cut—choppy at the roots and long at the back.
