Styling Tips & Tricks
Caputo says that you can fake a thick head of hair simply through styling. First, your stylist should define the shape of your cut based on the thickness of your hair; basically, the thinner it is, the shorter it should be. Next, your hairdresser should cut layers on the interior of your hair to create movement, lift and additional volume. Finally, the ends of your hair should be slightly texturized for added movement and volume.
If you decide to color your hair (which can actually help thicken strands, according to pro colorist Kyle White in New York City), don't shy away from gradation. Use a darker base color and slowly get lighter towards the ends, which will create the effect of denser-looking hair at the roots. However, you don't want the color to be too high-contrast, which will make your scalp stand out more. Applying different tones and levels of color on the ends of hair will also create a multidimensional look that includes a play of light and shadows and a sense of fullness.
