Thinning hair affects men and women, particularly as they get older in age.
This is because hair strands become smaller and lose their pigment, while others don’t grow anymore due to the follicle shrinking.
However, there are hairstyles for thin hair that disguise its thinning appearance, according to celebrity hairstylist and Viviscal Ambassador Neil Moodie.
What’s the best way to cut thin hair?
Neil’s number one piece of advice for grooming your thinning hair is to keep your hair length short.
“The longer it gets, the weaker the hair gets and so it can tend to look lank and straggly on the ends,” he said.
“There’s nothing worse than long hair that doesn’t look healthy.
“I would be inclined to say to people with fine or thin hair to keep it shorter in length.
“For those that have super thin hair you want to get layers in to get a bit more height and volume in the hair as opposed to the hair being all one length.
“I wouldn’t recommend really short layers because that can highlight the fineness of the hair.
“Personally I would recommend hair to be bob length or shorter and then to have some layers.
The length of the layers depend on what your hair is like, he says, for instance if it is curly it may need longer layers.
How can I style thin hair to make it look thicker?
“Root lift” is important for styling thin hair, as Moodie advises his clients.
“Getting root lift will make hair look thicker rather than having it lying flat against the head.
“To get root lift that lasts using the correct tools and styling products is essential.
For thickening hair products, Moodie recommends using the Windle and Moodie Foundation Spray to detangle hair.
This should be followed by using the Windle & Moodie Fortifying Spray to add hold and boost your style.
