Your hair (or lack of it,) is one of the very first things people notice about you. This information isn’t anything new to your knowledge base, however it comes with some suggestions of how to make that thin hair look its very best, and create an illusion of being a lot thicker than it actually might be. Thin hair, left to its own, looks flat and limp. Thin hair is unable to hold any particular style for any length of time, particularly the ones that are at all voluminous. Thin hair, of all hair types, most heavily depends on the way it is cut and styled, in order to get the maximum benefit of body and a thicker appearance. If you happen to be one of the “blessed” ones with thin hair, don’t be discouraged: there’s hope for you and your hair, too! Here are some cuts for giving thin hair the best advantage.
The Shag Haircut
Shag hair cutting methods are among the most widely known ways of adding body and volume to hair. Also known as layering, there are numerous techniques that serve to add bulk to otherwise inadequate hair volume. Layering works well on both straight and curly locks, and the shorter the shag is cut, the more volume the hair will appear to gain.
Of every type of cut you can get to improve the look of thin hair, it’s always going to be true that the shorter cuts are the most flattering. One reason they are superior to longer hair styles is that the longer the hair is. the heavier it becomes. Heavy hair hugs the head and lacks the bounce of shorter tresses. A stacked bob haircut is a great way to add volume. While thin hair doesn’t respond with as much precise geometric angling as thicker hair does, but this cut works, and by adding a little root-teasing, the volume can be increased significantly.
Medium Length Cuts
Medium length hair styles are perfect for a bouffant effect. By wearing hair in a middle of the head ponytail, it’s easy to create the bouffant look by strategically pulling on different strands of the ponytail. A braid or two added on the sides and wrapped in with where the ponytail is gathered adds a bit more mass. With this length, you can easily increase volume by adding different configurations of curls, which you lightly run your fingers through, but do not brush. Backswept curls are particularly volumizing.
