What is the difference between layers and feathering in a haircut?

Layers and feathering are two distinct techniques used in haircutting to create different styles and textures. Layers involve cutting the hair at varying lengths, creating dimension and movement. This technique is great for adding volume and reducing bulk. On the other hand, feathering involves delicately blending the ends of the hair, resulting in a softer, more seamless transition between lengths. Feathering is often used to achieve a graceful and wispy look. So, while both techniques offer unique outcomes, layers provide dimension through length variation, while feathering imparts a softer, blended appearance to the hair.
