Cut, Color, & Style: The Thin Hair Edition

If you think you suffer from thin hair, it’s time to learn the truth: though you hair may be fine, your style can be bold! There are plenty of tricks and tips to help make your look thicker and fuller.

The Cut:

In this case, instead of trying to obtain long locks of flowing hair, it can be more beneficial to you to just cut your losses, literally. A shorter haircut complements thin or fine hair better than a long cut does. Adding some layers into the mix can only increase the illusion of density, dimension, and of course, volume! Fortunately, there’s a variety of stylish short haircuts that are currently trending as much as Kylie Jenner on Instagram! Do some research or ask one of our stylists about any of the following cuts that are perfect for thin hair: bob, angled bob, lob, chopped messy shag, middle part with face framing layers. You can always go for a variation of any of these cuts, as well, to create a look that’s uniquely you!

The Color:

If you’re thinking about adding a pop of color to your new short cut, go for it! Basically, the more contrasting shades you have in your hair, the more depth your hair will appear to have. This being said, highlights are a great option! If you’re feeling a little more daring, you can go for an ombre or balayage style. A new hair trend that we’re currently seeing and totally digging is a shadow root. This look is just what it sounds like. If you have lighter hair, try going darker or adding a fun color like pink or purple just to your roots. When you’re rocking a chic and stylish look like this, no one will be paying attention to the thinness of your hair!

The Style:

As for shampoos and conditioners, you’ll want to look for something that will add volume to your hair. There’s plenty of affordable brands out there, but you can always ask one our stylists for a recommendation as well. As for styling products, you’ll want to use something that it light weight, so that it won’t weigh your hair down as your strut the streets! For example, if you use hairspray, choose the one says light hold. Ditch the straightener and go for a curling wand or heated rollers to add even more volume to your hair that is bound to turn heads as you walk by. You can switch up the sizes of your wand or rollers to create everything from beach waves to tight and bouncy curly-Q curls! The possibilities are endless.
