Stiff hair, each strand of which is thick, firm, and large in volume, is often time-consuming to style. For such stiff hair, we recommend hair arranging. It is easier and quicker to style than blow-drying. Here are five hair arrangements that are perfect for stiff hair.
- Side braided style
Since stiff hair tends to spread out from the top to the beak, braiding the sides of the hair will keep the volume down. Braiding the hair tightly will reduce the volume to some extent, but if it is too tightly braided, it will look old-fashioned. After braiding, pinch out a small amount of hair to give it a rougher, more modern look.
- Feminine half updo
If you find that a down style gives too much volume or spreads out too much, a half updo is the way to go. This style also holds the volume from the top to the bee. To create this style, simply scoop out the surface hair from above the ears and tie it up with an elastic band or pins. It is also a shortcut as it reduces the blow-drying time. Using a barrette is also cute.
- Enjoy the weight of one curl
A half updo is recommended, but it is also cute to dare to let it all down to create a heavier style. The strategy is to turn the volume of stiff hair into weight, since nowadays heavier styles with less layers are more popular than those with too many layers.
Curl the ends with an iron and finish with a glossy wax. The key to creating a “deliberately heavy” look is texture. If there is no shine, the hair will look spread out rather than heavy.
- Fishbones are very popular among casual types.
If you find it hard to keep the whole hair spread out and organized, braids are the way to go. One of the most recommended braids right now is called a fishbone.
Here is how to make it. First, part the hair into two bunches, and take the right end of the right bunch and pass it to the left bunch. Next, pass the left end of the left bundle to the right bundle. Repeat this process to create a braid that looks like a fishbone.
In a normal braid, once the hair is divided into three sections, the three sections are left untouched. However, with the fishbone, only a portion of the bundle is braided in, so the result is quite different.
- Arrange with a trendy turban
Lastly, this is an arrangement that is a big help when you are short on time. Tie your hair into a loose bun at the back and attach a wire turban in the style of a catsuit. The wire makes it easy to put on and easy to adjust afterwards. The turban is a strategy to hold down the volume at the top. Just by wrapping a trendy turban around your hair, you can instantly make it look more fashionable.
These are hair arrangements that suit stiff hair. They are all very pretty, so give them a try!
