Style Thinning Hair

Caped girl and hairdresser
 
Q: My hair is thinning and I need to know what type of hairstyle I should wear to make it look better and not show how thin it has become. I have a wedding coming up and I want to look good, not drab like now.
 
My hair is about shoulder length, but not quite and when pulled into a ponytail it is about the size of a quarter. What should I do?

 
A: While I cannot give you specific style advice in this forum both because I lack sufficient information to do so and because I cannot set a precedent which would result in an overwhelming influx of personal styling requests I can offer you some general information on dealing with thinner hair.
 
To add volume to thinner hair, you should try styling the hair with more curl. A roller set wrapped with on-base placement will help to create fullness and maximum volume in the hairstyle, making the hair look thicker.
 
If you dont want additional curl in the style, you can still add volume by applying a spray-on styling gel or mousse to the hair while it is damp, and blow-drying the hair with your head inverted or by holding the hair out from the scalp while drying it. This gives the hair extra lift at the scalp and gives your hair more fullness and leaves it looking thicker.
