Westend’s top tips for fine hair…

Thin hair doesn’t have to look and feel lifeless! Follow our simple top tips to create the illusion of having thicker hair…

1. Go Chic

Get a blunt or one-length haircut at our Glasgow City Centre Hair Salon to make hair look fuller and thicker at the ends.

2. Stay Short(ish)!

Try not to grow your hair too long. The longer it gets, the stringier it appears!

3. Conditioner Is Your Friend!

Apply conditioner to the ends of your hair, not the roots. This prevents your hair from becoming weighed down. Conditioner will actually help prevent the split ends and breakage that can make fine hair look thinner!

Styling ideas for fine hair from Westend Hair, Glasgow City Centre

3-ft13_78_r9_cropA great hairstyle for those with fine hair is one that is longer in front and shorter in the back, as this style frames the face and creates fullness at the back of the head.

– A relatively short cut is often best for women with limp or fine hair, as length will weigh it down (baring in mind that your face shape has to be a part of the overall decision).

– If you are hoping to have fuller looking hair at home, then it is also a good idea to use a volumising shampoo, conditioner, and styling products before blow-drying.

– If you blow-dry your hair upside down, it can add serious volume to even the thinnest hair!!

– Another great trick is to change your parting every few days. This way, less scalp is seen and you also have different ways to style your hair.

Hair Colour for fine hair

Hair colour can be a great advantage to fine hair, we recommend not colouring the hair to light as the lighter it goes the finer it will look, multi tonal lowlights can be a great way to add depth to you hair and make it appear thicker. Our experts will give you a full consultation and give you great advice on how to make your hair look it’s best, colour can also be great to add a bit of body too.
