No one loves their haircut completely the first time they see it. We’re not saying you will always be unhappy with your cut, but 100% satisfaction to a haircut in the first go is definitely a rare phenomenon. One of the major reasons for this can be because you didn’t take your hair type into consideration before you went to get a new hairstyle. We tell you what hairstyle will work on your hair type, to ensure you have a great hair day, every day.
Thick hair: Thick hair is easiest to style, even on the days it doesn’t want to behave itself. Opt for a simple bob with longer layers in the front and shorter ones at the back. This hairstyle looks especially great on people with oval or heart-shaped faces. Go for long layers instead of blunt-edged cuts to take off the extra volume.
Thin hair: A blunt cut works great to create the illusion of thickness, which is perfect if your hair is naturally fine. For shorter hair, it is best to avoid feathery layers, as they can look scruffy. The ever popular lob with an asymmetrical cut is a great option, it will soften your appearance and give you a great chic look. Layers are the best way to add volume to long hair, though with fine hair, it may not always work in your favour. A one-length cut with blunt bangs to add volume to your crown will help you amp up your hair game.
Curly hair: Curly hair is definitely the most stubborn and high-maintenance hair type out there, but don’t give up on managing it just yet. Layers are a curly-haired girl’s best friend. Opt for lots of layers that gradually taper around your face, or get an angular lob with longer layers in the front, and shorter ones at the back. If your curls are super tight, we suggest keeping your layers extra long to make your mane more manageable.
Wavy hair: Wavy hair is a great texture to play with, if done right. Go for a tousled pixie cut for a fun, flirty vibe. Or opt for shoulder-length beach waves. Not only are they immensely trendy, they’re also very easy to style. Just a quick scrunch up, a spritz of sea salt spray, and you’re good to go.
Straight hair: No matter how much everyone envies you for having naturally straight hair, you know what a nightmare it can be on a bad hair day. Get rid of the inevitable flatness by opting for a blunt cut with sweeping bang to add some volume at the crown. If you want to go short, a shoulder-length bob or a pixie cut are perfect for your hair.
