Wen u have layers, u wont b able to braid it properly. Layers look good wrn it is left open. Did anyone say tat yu have a bad haircut or its just ur inner feeling about it..? If some1 very close to yu had said tat yu have a bad hair, yu can chnge ur hairstyle again..
As u have layers, u might have u cut it above ur shoulders.. as said by Nisha, u can think of short haircut. pls provide ur inputs, so that we can sort it out.
