In our McLean hair salon, we see clients who complain about their thin or fine hair. Whether your finely textured hair is thick or thin, you have probably experienced some challenges in choosing a hairstyle and maintaining its stylish look. Relax. There are proven techniques for keeping fine hair looking its best.
The Right Cuts for Fine Hair
If you have fine hair, you want a hairstyle that makes you hair look thick and full. In most cases, shorter cuts will help fine or thin hair appear thicker, but you should consider hair texture of their hair and face shape when choosing a cut. Here are four haircut styles for fine hair:
- Bob – Fine or thin hair looks thicker when it is cut short. A bob is a practical style because its many variations match most face shapes. A short blunt bob which hits at the ear lobe makes the ends of the hair look particularly thick. A blunt cut bob that hits at the jaw line may give the greatest illusion of thickness. A longer bob with irregular,choppy ends is easier to style because it is supposed to have a messy look.
- Shoulder-Length Blunt Cut – If you have a round face, a shoulder length haircut may be more flattering. A blunt cut gives a thicker appearance to the ends of the hair as well. If angled forward to be shorter in the back than in the front, it is easy to have the ends of their hair curve under slightly.
- Layered Curls or Waves – Layered haircuts are a good option for hair that is wavy or curly. Adding layers to wavy or curly hair encourages the shorter layers to curl more, so the hair appears to have more volume. Curly or wavy hair is often easier to style when cut in layers, so individuals can work with the cut to give the hair the fullest look possible.
- Long Shag – A long shag haircut is a good option for anyone who prefers an edgier look. A shag cut has a sexy, messy style and adds texture, which makes the hair appear fuller. It is a layered look, but the ends are cut with scissors and not a razor, so they are feathery and appear thicker.
The Right Hair Styling Products
To keep fine hair looking its best, use the proper professional-grade shampoos and conditioners. Fine hair also needs the right styling products to stay healthy and look good.
Even if you’re using the best shampoos and conditioners available, it is still imperative that you not shampoo your hair every day. It will take some getting used to, but your hair will thank you in the end. If you can kick the daily shampoo habit, the right styling products will help ease the transition and avoid further flatness.
