Do you want to look slimmer? Did you know that your hairstyle can help you look thinner? When considering hair style, it's important to consider body shape and size as well as hair type, lifestyle, and face shape. The wrong hairstyle will make you look disproportionate and possibly, larger. For example, a large framed person with a tiny hairstyle will look out of place, as will a tiny person with a very large hairstyle. Here are a few things to consider when choosing the right hairstyle. You'll look thinner and prettier.
Slim your back. A long blunt cut will make your shoulders or your back look wider and thicker because it creates a straight line directly across your back. If your hair is long, have the back angled into a V shape. Not only will this break up the straight line that cuts across your back, it will also give your body a subtle, thinning appearance that tricks on the eye.
Slim your face. Blunt bangs will just make your face look wider, especially a strong, blunt bang. If you want your face to look thinner, you'll want side swept bangs that create a little "V" in the forehead area. If you must have blunt bangs, have your stylist chop into them with thinning shears to break up the severity of the look. Bangs that are too short can make the rest of you look too large.
Slim your chin. You don't need a makeover to tone up your chin; you can just use your hair. Soft layers in the hair that go from the ear to the chin will gently frame your face and make it look thinner. Angle the style around towards the front for the most slimming effect.
Slim your body. Having the right proportions for your hairstyle will help you look thinner. Proportion is such an important part of hairstyling. Consider your head size. Is it big for your body? Or is it small? Are you a large person? Or someone who is petite? These are important to consider when choosing the right hairstyle and hairstylist. If your style is too small for your body, it will make you look bigger.
Also, volume on the top of your head will make you look taller and thinner. While I wouldn't suggest a Marge Simpson beehive, I do believe a little extra volume in the crown goes a long way towards making you look thinner.
