Here at Bella Nani Salon and Day Spa we often hear some of our older clients worry about their thinning hair. This got us thinking about what can be done to help this issue. We spent some time looking at the internet and found this article that we thought was perfect. It’s nothing that is hard to achieve, in fact it’s 4 simple fixes that can help with BIG results!
As we get older, we might notice unwanted hairs sprouting in certain spots — and the hair on our heads thinning out. Along with new strands of silver and gray, the experience can be distressing.
“If there’s an issue, do something about it. Don’t hesitate. There are definitely many options out there,” Angelo David Pisacreta owner of the Angelo David Salon in New York City, told The Huffington Post.
With over 30 years of experience in the hair styling industry, Angelo David specializes in solutions for thinning hair.
“Women want to look young and beautiful no matter how old they are, whether it’s 50 or 90. Hair is still one of the most important things to a woman,” Pisacreta.
Here are some of the many options women have when it comes to making the most of their thinning hair.
While there’s nothing wrong with older women having long hair, if you have hair that is thinning all over, you might want to reconsider.
Hair starts out thickest at the base, where the roots are, and gradually gets thinner at the ends. Long hair might highlight the thinning, making for a less flattering look.
Pisacreta recommends working with your stylist to choose the right length, proportional to the severity of the thinning, and then go for layers.
Cuts that are the same length throughout can sometimes accentuate the loss of volume, while adding some soft layers can create the illusion of fullness and give hair some movement.
Go ahead and grab that bottle of hair dye. Subtle highlights and lowlights add what Pisacreta calls “volume color” to your hair. “I definitely recommend coloring,” he says.
Salon quality dyes nowadays are formulated to be less damaging to the hair, he adds, for anyone who fears coloring.
And if you’re ready to embrace your grays, well then that’s great, too. “Gray hair tends to be more texturey,” the stylist says. Texture gives an illusion of added thickness. Got it.
