For straight, fine hair, what kind of haircut should I be asking my hairstylist for? Do I need a few shorter layers? A few longer layers? Any texturizing?
Tony Chaar’s advice:
Well, it’s a big question since one of my specialties is fine hair.
If you have long, straight hair then I would definitely put some long layers in. The layers have to be almost choppy so that when they lay down with the rest of the hair they look strong, with movement—not thin and wispy. Fine hair loves to feel thicker and stronger.
Definitely no texturizing because texturizing on fine hair will make fine hair finer. So you have to go the opposite route.
If you have shoulder-length hair, then you go choppier, messier, sexier. Fine hair will feel very alive!
