Best hairstyles for fine hair with cowlicks

Want your own hair consultation from celebrity hairstylist Bill Angst? Send at least TWO well-lit, preferably hi-res photos of you (one close-up, one full-body) with a brief description of your hair texture, colour and main hair challenges to info@beautyeditor.ca with “Bill Angst Hair Consultation” in the subject line.

Q: First off, I am very grateful for this opportunity and for your time. I have quite a few issues with my hair. It is very fine, and there isn't much of it. Also, I have very deep/prominent cowlicks on my forehead, where my hair is also thinning. I have mainly been wearing it in a bob with a side-swept fringe.

Zora wants to be able to work with her hair instead of fighting it.

However, I have been wondering lately whether there is a hairstyle that allows me to work with what I've got, rather then trying to fight it. I would LOVE a change! Both in style and colour—I'm dreaming of some vibrant colour that would go well with my skin. And a style that would be both chic and "happy," as my facial features are not so soft, due to my bone structure.

I cannot wait to hear some suggestions. It is unfortunate that I am on the other side of the world, so I cannot come in person. MANY thanks! — Zora

Zora wants a chic haircut and colour that will soften her features.

A: Thank you Zora for your request for a consultation.

So, I'm going to bombard you with Inès de La Fressange—a style icon who has similar problems with her hair.

Any of these styles should be inspiration for you, as your cowlicks will never go away.

If you want to sport a fringe, then it will have to be combed forward from the crown to add enough weight to work.

I would also suggest using hot rollers with a setting lotion sprayed lightly on each section. This will give you more control when wearing your hair back off your face, or wearing it forward.

I would not bother colouring your hair because it is so fine and your current colour suits you so well.

Hot rollers will be all your hair can handle in terms of wear and tear.

Keep the cut simple at any of these lengths, whether you wear it straight or with added body. Too many details in the cut will not work.
