1. Thin hair in all areas
Hair styles that suit this type are: Angled or Graduated Bob/Lob
An angled or graduated bob/lob (i.e. the hair at the back is shorter than the front) will add body and shape to thin hair. The graduation helps re-distribute the weight back to your crown. Also, you can try a Root Stretch colour technique, where the roots are coloured slightly darker than re-growth to give the illusion of a denser root area. Avoid long hair lengths as the weight of the hair will make your crown appear flatter than it already is.
2. Thin strands but lots of hair
Hair styles that suit this type are: The Swag
The bangs add volume to your crown and make your hair appear thicker, while the shaggy layers can easily be manipulated into curls and waves add depth and texture without making your hair look too big.
Bonus: Spray on a little Sea Salt Spray for a more contemporary and tousled look.

3. Thick strands but not much hair
Hair styles that suit this type are: Pixie Cut
This is perfect for women with thick strands but are suffering from hair loss. To pull off a pixie cut, the hair diameter must ideally be above average to hold its shape. With less weight pulling the hair down and minimal brushing, one can expect fuller-looking hair while reducing hair breakage. All you need is some wax or clay, and you’re good to go.
If you’re one of those blessed ones who have extremely thick hair that looks dense even when you are suffering from hair loss problems, you can opt for an undercut or a close-cropped to reduce the usual heaviness.
4. Thick hair in all areas
Hair styles that suit this type are: Long Layers
Long layers add lightness and movement to thick hair, while reducing the weight at the bottom. Bottom-heavy hair can sometimes drag one’s appearance down, making you look fatigued.
When all else fails, do a half-up style to keep your mane away from your face while accentuating your facial features and your hair’s lushness.
5. Curly hair
Hair styles that suit this type are: Blended Bangs with Light Layers at the Bottom
This hairstyle best suits women with curly hair. The light layers at the bottom will accentuate the curls while keeping it in control. Also, the natural curls of the hair will help sweep the bangs to one side, keeping it neat while concealing any wrinkles one might have. The best part – side-swept bangs have a slimming effect as well!
Bonus: If you are blessed with slender shoulders, you might opt for a lob (long bob), with short layers in the back and long, face-framing layers in the front.
6. Grey hair
Embrace your grey!
Grey can be beautiful. Constant root retouching can be painful and time-consuming. Why not try to grow out your greys? After all, a full-fleged grey bob or pixie hairstyle can be very flattering too. If your grey is a little patchy, opt for a blonde (blue or purple depositing) shampoo. If you find grey hair too boring, insert panels of black low-lights into your hair for an edgier look.
Most importantly, moisturise your grey hair regularly to create a vibrant shine to it.

7. Heavy and straight hair
Hair styles that suit this type are: Wob (Wavy Bob)
The wob is trending and it’s best suited for women with heavy and straight, especially long, hair. This hair type creates an intense frame around the face, highlighting any facial flaws one might have. Think of your face as a painting; which will attract more attention to the painting? A thick black framed painting or a painting without frames? Also, heavy and straight (especially black) hair can sometimes make one look haggard.
A wob will help open up one’s face and bring out one’s cheekbones, as the waves help soften your features and make it appear fuller and fresher.
