Cut It Right

Depending on the thickness of your hair, your straight strands can feel flat at times. Use it to your advantage to try a sleek, blunt cut, or incorporate layers to give your hair movement and dimension.

Wavy-haired girls, you have the easiest texture of all. Add a little salt spray in the morning, and any cut can pass as effortlessly beachy. Wear your waves long or layered to channel your inner mermaid, or opt for a shorter cut for something modern and edgy.

No matter how tight your curls, this style can be tricky. Whether you decide to go for volume or length, we suggest having your stylist cut it dry to avoid any surprises.

Ladies with coarse hair are lucky: They have many viable options and can base their decision on their lifestyle. If you want zero fuss, try the edgy buzz cut; if you don't mind the maintenance, go with long locks.

While it's often coveted, thick hair can make your routine feel overwhelming. Shorter styles and bangs will take some of the weight off your style. If your thick hair falls flat, get rows of layers; if it has too much volume, opt for an even cut without the layers.

With thin hair, you can go for any haircut, but the magic is in the styling. If you prefer a sleek look, opt for a blowout with a lot of bounce, or wear a shaggier cut with tons of texture. If you're looking for something in between, have your stylist give you layers for added volume.
