A shadow root can give your locks the illusion of extra volume. You don’t have to go platinum white for this style to work—highlights can do the trick too.

Curly or straight, pixie bobs are a great style to conceal thin hair. You won’t have to mess around with styling much either if your cut is simple.

You don’t have to be wary of length—long curly hair can be striking. Use volumizing products and try not to let your hair get greasy.

The right stylist can use balayage like an artist wields paint to give depth and volume. Strategically placed highlights can make a whole world of difference.

Unlike with straight hair, an angled bob shouldn’t be too much maintenance with curls. This flirty style will also draw attention to your neck and jawline.

A classic high bun—perhaps with an insert to add size—is a fabulous and simple way to show off fine curly hair to the best advantage. No hair dye or scissors necessary! Allow a few strands to stay loose to frame your face for a more casual look.

If you’re reluctant to commit to a shaved head (we don’t blame you!) use hair gel to fake it. Slick one side back, pin it, and voila—wild girl for a day.
#8. Bangs

Your curls are more likely to look bouncy and full if they’re shorter. However, if you’re not willing to cut your tresses off entirely, bangs can help to add texture.

Are you willing to commit to a big change? Dying your locks a new color can make your curly fine hair stand out. Be wary of bleach damage that can thin your strands further—temporary dyes might be best.

The fruity name might be a little silly, but this style is decidedly fresh. Pile your curls up on top of your head and let them bounce!

A side part can switch up your look with zero long-term consequences. Seriously, changing your part can bring new life to your curls!

IG@hairbytylersue

If you’re not a fan of growing your hair out but you’re intimidated by ultra-short cuts, this one might be for you. Use a volumizing spray for a boost.

IG@ili_taught_you

Rocking half-pigtails is an excellent strategy to play up your curls. This look will give your hair more body versus separating all your hair into two pigtails.

Leave your hair to its own devices with a simple short bob. Ask your stylist to layer the hair framing your face for more texture.

3 Easy Ways to Volumize Your Hair
3 Easy Ways to Volumize Your Hair
Hair concerns: Flat, Thin These are my 3 quick, go-to hair tips for volumizing my hair! This is great for when you’re on the go and don’t have too much time on your hands. 1. Use a Root Volumizer Hot Tool (Bed Head Little Tease Hair Crimper for Outrageous Texture and Volume) - Using this root volumizer hot tool will give you the volume of teased hair without the tangled knots and hairspray. It works by making small crimps or waves in your hair and gives your roots volume from the texture it creates. Just make sure to cover your roots with a layer of hair to conceal the textured areas. - Directions: Clamp the hot tool at your roots, brush it out with your fingers, and cover it with a layer of hair. Spray a moderate amount of hair spray to keep it in place. 2. Dry Shampoo - Thin, flat hair usually looks lifeless because of the lack of texture and thinness of the hair shaft. This means that having freshly washed hair can actually be your worst enemy if you’re going for a volumized look. Adding in a hair product can help at the roots by allowing for your hair to be styled into place. You can use any texturizing spray to do so, but I like to use dry shampoo especially for second-hair days! It helps soak up the oils in my hair as well as volumizing my roots. - Directions: Use any dry shampoo your own and spray onto your roots and brush it out. 3. Hair Extensions - Adding hair extensions onto your head will effortlessly give the illusion that your hair is much thicker than it actually is. The added layers will make the roots of your hair appear uplifted. You can choose from lengthening hair extensions (like mine) or extensions that match your hair length. Either way, it’ll make your hair on your head look much fuller. - Directions: Use clip-in hair extensions and clip it onto your roots. Cover the clip-ins with a layer of hair and spray hairspray it to keep it in place. #cheriepartner #sponsored
‘C’ the difference with Vitamin C ⬇️antioxidants
‘C’ the difference with Vitamin C ⬇️antioxidants
#Dermaquest - C infusion serum[products]#[FourStars] Vitamin c is a potent and powerful antioxidant, using it topically protects the skin from free radical damage preventing the break down of collagen, elasticity and premature ageing. So what are free radicals? We are surrounded by free radicals every single day. Free radicals are unstable (missing an electron) molecules found in the environment. Free radicals cause damage as they travel through the skin, seeking their final electron pair, until they find an unfortunate donor who, then, becomes the new free radical. Until the final free radical in the 'free radical relay' stabilises, this reaction continues on and on, puncturing cell membranes, impeding cell function, and even damaging DNA! ⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⁠We cannot always control the environment we live in, but we can control what we put on our skin and this I where antioxidants come in. ⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠ Antioxidants are molecules that can donate an electron to free radicals without becoming 'radical' themselves, neutralising the chain of free radicals before they do too much damage. Antioxidants are the skin/body's natural defence against free radicals!⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ Using a potent antioxidant like Vitamin C alongside a broad-spectrum sunscreen will help protect your skin from free radicals. It's an essential step in achieving healthy skin that does not prematurely age. It's simple, protect your skin from the damage in the first place. Prevention is better than cure!!⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠ Vitamin C has many other benefits for skin health alongside a powerful antioxidant. ⁠⠀⁠ Topical Vitamin C can reach the dermal layer (second layer) of the skin to boost collagen production. Vitamin C supports the key amino acids in building collagen and supplying these amino acids with an abundance of Vitamin C accelerates collagen production. Vitamin C suppresses the melanocyte hyperactivity responsible for dark spots and hyperpigmentation without changing healthy pigment. Vitamin C is successful in treating hyper-pigmentation (brown spots). #Dermaquest - C infusion serum[products]#[FourStars] Why I choose dermaquest C-infusion serum? I tried them all, all the brands and this is by far is my favourite to use and recommend. Why?! Because it's highly stable. C Infusion Serum uses Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (BV-OSC) an oil-soluble and a highly stable form of the vitamin C family, making it easier to travel to the dermal layer to start building long term change within the skin. While it's not as potent as L-ascorbic Acid (pure Vitamin C), higher percentages are more stable, and it's able to penetrate deeper. Also, because of its high stability, it's unlikely to degrade over time. C infusion Vitamin C serum boasts it can boost collagen by up to 50%. It also contains ferulic acid, a powerful antioxidant to enhance Vitamin C's effectiveness alongside MDI complex, which increases hydration and moisture retention. The texture is a creamy serum with added orange stem cells for extra skin support, and aromatic citrus treat.

The Ordinary Empties and final thoughts!
The Ordinary Empties and final thoughts!
I believe it’s been almost 10 months of me using The Ordinary products and wow! I can’t believe so much time has passed! These 3 products are the very first products I ever bought to try and here’s what I think! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% This serum I would buy again and again. And I do! I’m on my 3rd bottle! Because I usually wear glasses, my nose gets really really oily under the nose pieces which causes them to slide around my face A LOT. After using this serum, I’ve noticed that I really don’t get oily in that spot anymore thank god! My T zone is balanced and because of my oil production going down, I’ve also noticed my pores around my nose have shrunk dramatically. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 This one I’m really on the fence about. I have definitely seen improvement in my face in terms of “wrinkles” which really were just a way of my face telling me I needed more moisture! However, the formula is soooo tacky that when I try to use it during the day it makes my sunscreen pill no matter how long I wait for it to settle in. Even though I hate the tackiness, I still bought a 2nd bottle! The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG There’s nothing wrong with this product. I just feel like it didn’t do much for me! I got it to help with my dark under eyes and puffiness but I don’t think it did much. If it did do anything, it was too gradual of a change for me to notice. Also, does anyone know what all this buildup is around the cap??? I guess we will see how long it takes me to realize it did help and I run to get a new bottle! For now, I think one bottle of this was enough for me.
My Top 3 Favourite Lip Combos
My Top 3 Favourite Lip Combos
I have tried so many different lip products and combos, and these 3 combos are definitely my favourite at the moment! All these products are long wearing and look amazing on the lips. Lip Combo #1: KKW Beauty Nude 1 Lip Liner + Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick I’m a huge fan of rosy nude lips and the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow talk lipstick is perfect! I like to pair it with the KKW Nude 1 liner because this liner acts as a sort of contour for the lips since it’s darker and more brown than the lipstick. KKW BEAUTY - KKW BEAUTY Nude Lip Liner Charlotte Tilbury - Hot Lips Lipstick Lip Combo #2: KKW Nude 1 Lip Liner + KKW Nude 1 Lipstick This has been my go to nude lip for a while now! I could never find the “perfect nude” that worked for my skin tone, and finally I’m so glad that I did. This combo is the perfect light nude shade and is perfect for everyday wear. It goes with any makeup look too! KKW BEAUTY - KKW BEAUTY Nude Lip Liner KKW BEAUTY - Nude Crème Lipstick Lip Combo #3: Kylie Cosmetics Kylie Lip Kit (Lip Liner + Matte Liquid Lip) There’s no denying the fact that Kylie Jenners pout is iconic. So what better way to achieve her go to lips than actually use her go to lip products!? The “Kylie” Lip Kit is her go to (hence the name haha) it’s the perfect pink nude and makes your lips look super plump because of the darker lipliner that comes in the kit. The pairing of the darker lip liner with the pink nude liquid lip contours your lips for that Kylie pout effect! KYLIE COSMETICS - KYLIE COSMETICS Matte Liquid Lipstick
