Hair consultation Yuan Reader hair consultation! Bill Angsts advice for Yuan

Yuan writes:

I am 5 ft 5, with brown eyes, and dark brown/black hair that has never been coloured. My hair is very thick, and when air-dried, which is every day, it is slightly wavy. My hair is not very difficult, but it can be dry and lacking in volume.

Thank you so much for offering this service, it is greatly appreciated.

The advice

Bill Angst writes:

Miss Yuan,

Thank you for submitting your photo! Your natural approach to your style is commendable.

You should grow your hair much longer and have the mid-shaft and the ends notched with scissors, not thinning shears nor razor. (These will make your hair fuzzy and hard to style.)

Notching in the right places will release weight in the hair, add volume to the mid-shaft and texturize the ends where necessary. Also this will make the ends tapered—which will remove weight and help to promote wave.

Try not to wash your hair any more than your roots need. No need for greasy roots but washing too often makes it difficult to keep control of this style.

Leaving gel and a ridiculous amount of conditioner in your ends will, with the help of a little scrunching, add wave to your ends with this cut.

The longer the better for your hair, Yuan. And your part could be anywhere it wants to be with my advice.

PS… Please stay away from colour to get the most out of your hair.

Yuan has beautiful hair!! I can’t believe that’s her natural, air-dried hair- what a lucky girl! I agree that it would look even more amazing longer.
