Styling thin hair is not easy. The lack of volume makes it almost impossible to create and maintain a style on thin hair for a long time. Plus, even if you manage to style thin hair in some way, they are likely to fall flat and lose shape quickly, making it feel like your effort was wasted.
An effective solution to make thin hair look stylish and voluminous is to color your hair. Here are a few hair colors that make your hair look thicker.
Blond is a spectrum of light hair colors revolving around yellow or golden tones. Many shades fall within this spectrum, ranging from very light, almost white, to a deeper, honey-toned hue. Some well-known variations in the blond color palette include ash, platinum, and golden.
The best blond shades that can make your hair look thick are neutral – neither too warm nor too cool, like beige.
Neutral blond colors like beige can add a natural-looking depth and dimension to your hair, making it look thicker and fuller. They are also more versatile and complement a variety of skin tones, especially for people with pale skin.
Brownish Pink Ombre
Brown and pink are two super-fun hair colors that make your hair look thicker when combined correctly.
Brownish-pink ombre combines warm brown and soft pink tones, creating depth and dimension to make your hair look thicker. Plus, it suits a wide range of skin tones and draws attention to your hair.
Brownish pink hair color also possesses a reflective quality that can make your hair appear shinier and healthier, swaying the attention away from the lack of hair volume on the scalp. Additionally, this bold color looks fantastic on both long and medium hair.
Dark Chocolate Brown
While blondes and redheads have traditionally garnered the most attention in terms of hair color, the trend of darker shades of brown, such as dark chocolate, is taking over now.
Dark chocolate is a rich, deep, cool brown tone that exudes a sense of luxury and sophistication. It is a versatile color that complements most skin tones, particularly olive and brown skin. You can consider pairing this color with subtle auburn highlights for added dimension.
Such dark shades of brown are becoming popular as hair colors among men and women as they can effectively make hair look thicker and shinier.
The rich shades of purple are becoming quite popular as hair colors amongst people wanting to make their hair look thicker or those wanting an exciting transformation in their look.
Here are some ways this royal color can create the illusion of thicker or fuller hair.
- Adding purple highlights to your hair can create depth and dimension, making it look healthy and bouncy. Ask your stylist to add the purple highlights strategically for a natural-looking effect.
- You can also go for balayage – a hair coloring technique where the color is painted on hair in a natural-looking way. Adding purple to a balayage produces a multidimensional effect that can make the hair appear thicker.
- Purple is a complementary color to yellow. So, adding purple tones to your hair can complement and accentuate yellow or blond tones, creating a more dynamic look and making your hair appear fuller.
