Expert Style Advice for Thinning Hair
CHOOSE A CUT THAT ADDS VOLUME: Generally speaking, shorter cuts are the most flattering for thinning hair. The trick for adding fullness is to instruct your hairstylist to create interior layers, placed throughout your cut, not just on the ends.
Create a fuller look with a cut that features longer bangs in the front and short, angled layers throughout the crown. Plus you’ll appreciate this super cute, trendy look is also totally low maintenance!
Or, if you absolutely must have longer hair, opt for shoulder length. Soft, textured waves and a center part is trending this year. It’s a current style that really makes the most of thinning locks.
PRECISION HIGHLIGHTS: Well-placed highlights camouflage limp hair with a trompe l’oeil (a French term that simply means ‘fooling the eye’). Try a color that’s two shades lighter than your normal color at the front, and a deeper color near the roots. Another benefit you’ll notice is the dye expands the hair shaft slightly which makes your hair appear thicker.
A word of caution: Over-bleaching or significantly lightening your hair color all over can cause damage or breakage, so make sure you invest in a salon with an expert color technician to create the desired effect.
FLIP YOUR PART: Hair lies flat against the scalp when brushed repeatedly in the same direction; so every now and then, switch your part. This simple change will cause your hair to stand up, and look fuller.
STAY COOL: To minimize breakage, air-dry your hair whenever possible. If you must use a dryer or other heated tools, keep them set on the lowest heat level. Simply put, styling with heat can damage the hair shaft.
