A Great Cut is Everything

A new cut may be just what you need to make your hair look thicker, fuller, and more voluminous. Get inspired by these do’s and don’t’s, and talk to your stylist about them the next time you’re at the salon.

Your stylist is sure to have great ideas for shaping your hair to give it more body and the appearance of more volume. To help the conversation along, here are some of our favorite tips for you to think about before your next salon visit.

DO get regular trims. Keeping split ends at bay will make your locks look their thickest and healthiest.

DO ask for subtle layers. No matter if your hair is thin, wavy, or curly, a layered cut is a fantastic way to fake dimension. However, if the layers are too extreme, it may have the opposite effect.

DO experiment with bangs, which could give the illusion of more hair.

DO try a zigzag part for some extra oomph at the roots.

DON’T have hair that’s all one length. 

DON’T rule out a chic pixie cut.

DON'T get hair extensions. It might be tempting to fill your head with long, thick extensions, but the procedure can ironically lead to increased hair thinning due to the pull from the extensions.
