Find the Best Hairstyle for Your Hair Texture

Our West Hartford salon experts say that a great way to determine if a hairstyle will suit your lifestyle is to consider your hair texture. The texture of your hair can be a determining factor in deciding whether a hairstyle will work for you. Below we have stated some typical hair textures that we regularly see here at our West Hartford salon.

Straight and Fine

Thin hair usually has a silky, flat-laying texture that is generally easy to work with. This hair texture can be a challenge when it comes to curling, as it does not hold curls well due to its silky texture. At Salon Alexander LLC, we always suggest that our clients with straight fine hair go with a side-swept, wispy look with lots of layers. This adds volume and dimension to fine hair which can tend to look flat and juvenile if cut long and blunt.

Thick and Curly

Hair that is coarse, thick and curly has natural bounce and volume. However, this can be challenging for short hairstyles. Our West Hartford experts always suggest that thick and curly hair be worn long. We also recommend some hair products which help tame frizz and flyaways and relax the hair follicle naturally.

Medium-Thick and Wavy

Medium-thick, wavy hair is very versatile and can support most hairstyles without causing too many problems. This is a plus, as our clients who have this hair texture can enjoy both long and short haircuts. With this type of texture, we usually recommend that our clients add layers for depth and dimension.
