20 Super Easy Layered Cuts for Short Hair

We all want that effortless wind-in-our-hair look. You know, the kind that has been seen on the face of Jennifer Anniston and just about every other A-list celebrity out there. It makes thick hair feel lighter. It adds volume to thin hair. Most important it looks great. Most seem to think this is a hairstyle reserved for those with long hair.
