Whether your hair is naturally thin or thinning as a result of stress, there is a solution! Hairdressers say that it is easier to work with thin hair, so do not be sad that you have delicate hair – there are techniques that will give more volume to your hair.
Stop complaining. Immediately. Thin hair is not the end of the world!
The right hairstyle for thin hair
What components does the perfect hairstyle contain?
● The length should be just above the shoulders to avoid loss of volume.
● Breton – yes or no? Yes, if it goes to the shape of your face: The bangs take away from the volume of the rest of the hair, but add structure and can shape the face.
● Road in the center of the head? Rather not. Too correct and dramatic partings of the hair can show the scalp, which will emphasize the thinning hair at the roots.
Dyeing thin hair – there is a magical solution
This is not a problem, but you should be careful not to overdo it (for example, platinum blonde/raven black). The reason is that hair looks thinner when light passes through it, so too dark or light tones do not help with adding volume. This negative effect is further enhanced by the contrasting color of the scalp.
The right colors for the thin hair
Dark or strawberry blonde, golden or copper and light to medium brown will soften the look of thinning or sparse hair. The key to refracting light: use natural or extra shine in hair styling to cover areas with less hair. ‘Hair contouring’ – the latest scream of trends, is a great option if you want to add volume to your hair. More underestimated than locks, this technique consists of lightly lightening strategic locks of hair to make it look overall thicker and voluminous.
- When washing your hair, focus on the roots, not the lengths. Do not use your whole palm, as this will flatten your hair and massage with your fingertips.
- If your hair is long, avoid washing the ends – just run your fingers through them when rinsing. Instead, focus on the scalp, as this is where excess sebum and impurities accumulate.
- If your hair is naturally curly and unruly, then leave the shampoo and use only conditioner, which thanks to its active ingredients will wash your hair. The ‘shampoo-free’ trend is great for delicate skin, as it strengthens the hair fiber without aggravating it with too many products.
Styling thin hair
Working with thin hair is simple: The less, the better! Presses, curling irons, hairdryers, pulling, combing – all this is too aggressive for thin hair, which further thins and weakens it. Instead, use the natural shape of your hair to maximize its movement with a styling product. Just be careful not to overdo it!
Do you have thin or sparse hair and want more volume? Take a look at our offers.
Straight, long, and gorgeous. Girls with long but thin hair can try “floors”. In this hairstyle, the hair is formed around the face, creating a stepped slope with locks of different lengths – from short to long. This hairstyle definitely adds more volume to your hair.
Bob. All variations of the bean hairstyle or more “on the line” is a great idea for short hair. This hairstyle combines perfectly with all types of faces – depending on how thin it is.
Long beans. For girls who prefer their hair to be long, there is a compromise solution: long beans. Slightly disheveled and split locks, this hairstyle looks incredibly stylish and full of volume.
Wavy beans. A few gentle curls are always helpful when ladies want a little more volume. All you need is a curling iron and a little hairspray to play with your hair.
Elongated front beans. The classic bean has clearly defined lines and cannot be shaggy. But you can still afford to experiment. Your hair will look much more voluminous if the front locks are longer than the back ones. This hairstyle was first popularized by Rihanna 7-8 years ago.
Wavy ends of the hair. There is an easy trick you can use if you don’t want to change your hairstyle: just ask your hairdresser to play with the ends of your hair a bit and make them “more torn”.
This trick can also be used for shorter hair. This idea is great for ladies who do not like to spend a lot of time caring for their hair but want to keep their volume.
Smooth waves. This is one of the lightest and most feminine hairstyles. Light gentle waves lengthen the length of your hair and give it the necessary extra volume. But remember – you will achieve this volume not with rollers, but with a thicker hair curler.
A playful bean. Another way to diversify the classic bean is by slicing its edges, which are of different lengths. So this hairstyle becomes a little “shaggy” and very relevant.
Asymmetrical beans. Asymmetry is your best friend when you want to add volume to your hairstyle. Your hair can be styled this way with a brush or mousse. Don’t be afraid to experiment – in this case, the ladies were quite brave.
Degrees. The layered hairstyle is one of the most preferred when it comes to volume. Increasing the length of your hair can give it incredible volume, especially if your hair is very thin.
Pixie Hairstyle. Fans of short hair can always count on this hairstyle. It is stylish and modern and can be of different lengths. Whether you want to shave your temples or the back of your head, don’t forget to play with the different lengths or colors of your hair. Although it is short, this hairstyle definitely adds a lot of volume to your look.
Long pixie. This style shifts the focus from the typically masculine style to the more feminine. The locks of hair around the temples can be placed behind the ears, which softens the face, but if you want something that will make you stand out more in the crowd, you better lift them and fix them with hairspray.
