Long, short, thin or full, our hairstyle and hair type matters to all of us. How we choose to wear our hair, the color, the length, and the texture reflects how we view our personal look and style as much as the makeup and clothes that we enjoy.
Our hair is actually a protein filament that grows from follicles in the dermis. The most common interest in hair is focused on hair growth, hair type, and hair care. Many of us define ourselves by our trending tresses. The Andre Walker Hair Typing System is the most universal system used to classify hair. According to this system, there are four types of hair: straight, wavy, curly and kinky. In the realm of our luscious locks, it seems that many of us wish to change our basic hair type. People with straight hair long for curls, while those with naturally wavy hair wish for straight tresses. Even if you only want to change your hair type once in a while, there are various hairstyles that work wonders for every hair type.
Hairstyles That Work Well for All Hair Types:
• Curly Ponytail: A ponytail is the easiest hairstyle that you can try. Simply pull your hair back into a high ponytail, securing it with an elastic band so you don’t break the hair. Divide the ponytail into 2 or 3 sections and use a curling iron to add curl section by section. Secure the curls with hairspray, if desired.
• The Bob: Since the bob is a short haircut that tends to curl in under the chin. This hairstyle works well for everyone. If you just can’t seem to grow your hair long or you prefer hair that is short and sassy, then why not opt to go short and trendy? This hairstyle fits all hair types.
• Off The Forehead: Hairstyles that are parted down the middle of your head or are blow-dried and brushed back off the forehead can be done with all hair types. To keep the hair completely off of your forehead, wear a headband, which not only secures the front section of your hair but is a great way to accessorize.
• Straight Hair: Yes, even wavy, curly and kinky hair can be made straight by using a flat iron and a hair straightening leave in conditioner.
• Cornrow Braids: While some people with kinky hair are blessed to have natural looking cornrow braids, even those of you with straight or wavy hair can wear a head full of cornrow braids. If you desire this beautiful, exotic look, go for it!
• Twisted and Wavy Hairstyle: Create a middle part and take one inch of hair from both sides. Twist these sections at the back with a pin to achieve this look. Jazz up this feminine, flowing hairstyle with a flashy hair accessory.
• Wet Hair/Slick Back Look: This look is sleek and sexy. Simply run some gel on your hair from the hairline to the crown and spread the gel evenly throughout your hair, using a wide tooth comb to neatly comb your hair back. Congrats! You’ve got the wet head look.
Most of us have gone to a professional hair salon at some time, got a fantastic weave, color, haircut, and hairstyle only to discover that once we got home and shampooed for the first time, we never get our hair looking as wonderful as it did when we left the salon. How do you remedy this disappointment? Practice, practice, practice. Over time you’ll be able to get your hair looking simply divine!
