There are many reasons why women have thinning hair and it seems like there are just as many options to help treat it. Topical treatments, supplements, specialty shampoos, styling products, wigs, or hair extensions are just some of the most popular solutions that come to mind. However, one of the easiest and most effective ways to make your hair look thicker is by finding the right hairstyle for your locks.
If you have long hair, then the thought of cutting it might be something that you have long avoided. Long hair is notorious with youth and beauty but if you have thinning hair, a shorter style could actually make your hair look fuller and healthier and help you to look younger.
A mid-length at the shoulder cut angled in long layers around the face provides both length and fullness if you’re not quite ready to chop off all of your hair. With much of the weight taken off the ends, your hair will have more movement and body. Suzanne Somers and Jaclyn Smith don this cut and still remain sexy and elegant.
Ready to go a bit shorter? Consider the classic, timeless bob. Full side-swept bangs can camouflage a thinning hairline and the overall length allows for great coverage on any thinning areas with a little fluffing here and there. It’s also low-maintenance and pretty much flatters any face shape. With this style, you’ll be in good company since Jackie O. and Cybil Shepherd both preferred this cut.
In the same family is the short, choppy bob if you want a little more sass and flair. This is even better at covering up thinning spots at the crown or back of the head. This cut is synonymous with Meg Ryan and Diane Sawyer.
The final option is also the most daring: the short layered crop a la Kris Jenner. Your hair can achieve great texture and will appear fuller with less work. You will need to consider that you will need to get a trim every six weeks or so, but it will be less work on a daily basis.
