Advice for Fine Hair...

You can have THICK but FINE hair all at the same time. When I say FINE, I mean the diameter of each hair strand is small, but you may still have a LOT of hair or “thick” hair. Quite honestly, I have found that this type of hair seems to be the most common.

Fine hair can lay limp with no body, so finding a style and cut that gives the illusion of fullness is always a goal for my clients.

THE CUT:
I recommend a mid to short length hair cut that is pretty much all one length. Think A-Line bob at the shoulder. This cut gives the hair the illusion of being fuller and as having more body and it moves well.

If you like it short, you’re in luck - pixie cuts and whispy short edgy cuts are great and can be “pumped up” with product and styling.

If you MUST have longer hair, I understand.. but keep layers to a minimum. Layers can leave fine hair flying away and create a thinner look than you may want. A few layers at the bottom for some movement and maybe some around the face for shape and that’s it – keep the overall shape at one length.

PRODUCT / STYLE:
Remember… shampoo at the scalp, condition at the ends.
Thickening and Volumizing products are not the same thing, and you may need both!
Thickening products plump up each hair to make it feel like you have more hair - Volumizing products give the hair lift and body.

To style for body on mid length to longer hair, you need to blowdry – with product.

Pre dry your hair first, hanging your head upside down and blow drying using your fingers will help add lift. Once your hair is about 80-85% dry switch to using a round brush, over directing the sections with high heat at the root to build volume in each section.
When I say over direction, I mean brush the hair forward as you dry, then when you go to style it backwards it will have additional lift!

For the never ending tangles and to add manageability and shine, I recommend the Brazilian Blowout Treatment. Ask me about it when you come in!

Hope this helps!
