Wish you could find the perfect hair styling technique for instantly gorgeous tresses? You’re not alone. The hair experts say the secret to getting gorgeous hair without spending hours in front of the mirror lies in the cut and colour, and we just happen to have the low-down…
1. Thick hair
Believe it or not, longer hair can actually be low maintenance, resulting in fuss-free styling. Go for something below your shoulders, as that extra bit of weight will stop hair looking bushy.
However, if you’d prefer a shorter bob style, ask your stylist to thin out the ends, and then apply a serum before drying and throughout the day to keep the look sleek.
2. Thin hair
Instead of trying to create volume with lots of styling products, a nice blunt cut will be easier to manage and will give the illusion of more body. This is because one-length ends look super healthy, which in turn look denser. Avoid fringes though, as they’re tricky to keep looking full and fabulous without never-ending blow-drying each day. Boost volume in seconds by working a texturiser into the roots and through the mid-lengths of your hair.
3. Curly hair
Whether you want a bob or a longer look, go for a graduated cut that keeps hair shorter at the back and longer at the front. This gives your hair an obvious style no matter the length. Help your curls do their thing by applying nourishing conditioner for added definition.
4. Wavy hair
Waves tend to equal a whole lot of natural volume and texture, so you can go for anything from a short style to a shoulder-length lob. Before bed, apply a salt spray to just-dried hair and secure into three top knots with clips to wake up with ready-to-wear gorgeous hair.
5. Coloured hair
Don’t stray too far from your natural hair colour to prevent the tone fading fast. Instead, opt for a well-blended highlights technique like balayage, which requires the stylist to paint on your colour free hair. The look is natural and you won’t end up with an obvious root regrowth line. And if you happen to notice any tell-tale signs just cover up the roots with a root concealer
