5 haircuts that make your hair look thicker

Categories : Salons

If you have fine hair, or are starting to see hair loss, these haircuts and styling tips can help your hair look thicker.

Get “3D” bangs

Bangs can help hide thinning hair at the crown. You can also ask your hair stylist to color the bottom layers a darker color. This creates a three-dimensional effect that makes hair look thicker than it really is.

Get a blunt cut

Your stylist can cut the under layer of your hair about half an inch shorter to make hair look thicker and fuller. But avoid any razor cuts, which can make the tips look frayed and wispy.

Get highlights

Again, this is all about creating a 3D effect that always adds an illusion of thickness. A bonus is that peroxide can make the hair shaft swell. However, any bleaching can dry and damage your hair, so always follow up with a nourishing and moisturizing hair treatment.

Cut it above the shoulders

The longer your hair is, the thinner it looks. Cut it above the shoulders. Don’t worry, it won’t make your face look rounder! Your stylist can help pick a cut that balances your face shape.

Trade gels for mousse

Gels and creams can weigh down your hair. A mousse is less sticky and actually really easy to work with! Just apply this on damp hair and then style. There are also lots of volumizing mousses that are made to make your hair look full and thick.
