Having thin hair doesn’t have to mean living with limp, lifeless locks. Wouldn’t we all love to have thick, luxurious hair? But there are solutions. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have put together of a few styling tips and tricks that will give your thinning hair a gorgeous full look.
The Best Fine Hair Haircuts
A Shoulder Length Blunt Cut
With fine, thinning hair, it’s best to avoid short layers. Layers take the bulk out of hair and bulkiness is the illusion you want to create. That’s why you’ll want to minimize any layers and opt for a classic square shoulder-grazing blunt cut. This provides you with a thicker, heavier look.
A Collarbone Cut With A Deep Side Part
A collarbone cut with a deep side part provides the top of your hair with more volume, thus providing you with a fuller look. Tousled or textured hair will also give you a thicker look instead of a sleek, straight style. When it comes to a part, it’s best to avoid anything centered. A centered part only allows your hair to go straight down resulting a lank, lifeless look.
A Short Pixie Cut
There are a wide variety of pixie haircuts that combine short underneath hair with length on top. This will provide you with a thick, fuller look. Long hair weighs down your look, maximizing thinness.
If you have fine, thin hair, it’s best to avoid a wispy bang. Wispy bangs can provide you with the illusion of breakage, making your hair look even finer. Instead, it’s important to make a statement with your bangs by wearing them thick. This will provide you with density and body while accentuating your face and eyes.
For those with thinning hair, it’s important not to go with an ultralight hair color. All over blonde can be transparent and “see-through” making your hair appear even thinner. Not to mention many lightening treatments can be a bit harsh on those with fine hair. Instead, opt for a few strategically placed highlights. You may also want to consider going with a color that adds depth such as rich reds and browns that provide you with the illusion of weight and bulk, therefore thickening the appearance of your hair.
Blow Drying & Styling
Unless you have naturally wavy or curly hair, it’s important to blow dry your hair to give it the volume it needs to look fuller. Wet hair clings to the scalp as it drys making thin hair look even finer. To build volume use your fingers to help lift the roots as you blow dry. Keep in mind that fine hair dries and styles fairly quickly. When you blow dry, start at the bottom and work your way up to the top with a dry round brush to maximize volume, bounce, and body.
Depending on the condition of your thin hair, hair extensions could be a helpful option. Hair extensions are a wonderful way to add instant volume that lasts for weeks or even months. Although a bit on the pricier side, this styling option can be well worth the money if your looking for a non-medical solution for your fine or thinning hair. From clip-ins to fusions, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE can provide you with the hair extensions you need to help boost your confidence and give you extra hair.
