Female Hair Products That Fit Your Hair Type Best

As a woman, your hair is your pride and joy. In fact, some cultures regard a woman’s hair as her crown and source of beauty. Your hair is fabulous and unique in its own way, from straight and soft, to hard and curly. Of course, you get to make the choice of styling your hair however you want it. But you also need to understand your hair type and know how to speak its language. Your hair probably has quirks and limits that you need to pay attention to. These little quirks are what inform your choice of hair products.

Hairstylists enter into this equation at this point. They are your personal hair specialists. Finding a good hairstylist near you will make it all so much easier. Hair Stylist appointment apps are your entry into the world of great hairstyles and great products. One hairdresser app that comes with so much ease and convenience is the Goumin app. It is your hair companion that never disappoints.

Now, to really understand what hair products are best for you, you need to know what hair type you have.

Different Hair Types For Ladies

To start, you need to understand that your hair is beautiful. Yes, whatever type of hair you have, it is one of the most gorgeous things ever created. You need to carry this kind of energy about your hair with you all the time. Your hair may drain your money and time. It could do many things that might make you want to tear it out, but at the end of the day, it is your friend. Whether it is oily or thick, short or long, matte or glossy, you should treat it with respect. You will be surprised at how well you will be rewarded. Ladies generally have four hair types, check where your hair falls below:

Straight Hair

If you can find no curl or wave in your hair down to the strand, then you have straight hair. It is also a fact that if you have straight hair, then you most likely have oily hair. Because your hair is straight, the natural oils secreted by your scalp can coat your hair all the way through more easily.

Like many other hairstyles, straight hair is gorgeous. But then many women with straight hair wish that they could have curlier hair. They can achieve this only by the use of a curling iron or perm. Generally, straight hair is one of the easiest hair types to care for. But it could also lack volume and be a bother to style. Contrary to what you might believe, straight hair isn’t just straight. There are actually three types of straight hair:

Type 1A

This is fine hair at its best. It is usually quite soft, shiny and wispy. It looks good to the eyes but it usually lacks volume. You will need a volumizer for this type of hair.

Type 1B

If you have this type of hair, it is a bit thicker than fine hair. It also comes with more volume and is easier to manage. Type 1B straight hair is one of the sweetest hair types to have. It is perfect for some of the really cool and trendy hairdos like an updo or a slicked back hairdo. It is not too thick to make it hard to manage and not too thin to make it hard to style.

Type 1C

If you have this type of hair, then your hair is probably very coarse and thick. This straight hair type is usually difficult to manage. It is also very difficult to get curls from it. With this type of hairstyle, you might want to go layered with your haircut to make it easier to style.

Wavy Hair

If you are blessed with wavy hair, then your hair strands are probably curled but not to the extent that they are coiled. If you look at your strands intently, you will see that they are in more of an S-shape than a coil shape. Women with this kind of hair are kind of in the middle of nowhere. Not quite straight, and not quite coily, it is an interesting place to be. Regarding oiliness, this hair type is in between: not too oily, not too dry.

Like straight hair, there are different types of wavy hair:

Type 2A

If you have this type of wavy hair, then you are quite lucky indeed. Many women with straight hair are using tons of products and curling irons to get what you have. You have this natural beachy hair look that is the envy of many women. This hair type does not get as frizzy as other types.

Type 2B

If you have this type of hair, you will see that your waves are a bit more defined than those of type 2a. You will have to worry about frizzing with this hair type but the proper hair product can help you manage that.

Type 2C

This type of wavy hair is the closest to curly hair. You probably look like you are carrying around a full head of curls on a good day. This hair type really gets frizzy though, that is a major issue you have to be mindful of.

Curly Hair

Curly hair is a card-carrying member of the curl family. It has more true curls than wavy hair and comes with loose ringlets and tight spirals. Curly hair can be difficult to get under control, but you only need to wash it once in a while because it gets really dry.

If you have curly hair, then you particularly need a good hairstylist that knows how to style and cut curly hair. It can sometimes be tricky to get it right. The Goumin app is what you need to give this hair type the professional care that it needs.

Here are the different types of curly hair that a lady can have:

Type 3A

This is the finest curly hair that you can have, it comes with huge and really loose curls. Because the curls are so large, you will have an easier time managing this hair type. But of course, like all curly hair, it is prone to frizz.

Type 3B

If you have this hair type, then you are a candidate for envy from other women. Your hair has these springy ringlets that make others turn green. Your curls are not too thick or too soft, a perfect blend.

Type 3C

This is a hybrid hair that has a mixture of bouncy and tight corkscrew curls. Your curls are also most likely coarse and not very soft. Using the right type of product can help you manage this hair type more efficiently.

Coily Hair

Coily hair, also known as kinky hair is a version of curly hair that has both S-shaped curls and Z-shaped curls. Most women with this type of hair prefer to keep it short so they can easily manage it. You do have the option of some interesting styles though if you are feeling up to it. Like the other hair types, coily hair has three types:

Type 4A

This type of coily hair has a really fine texture and can look quite wiry. It also appears thick because it has a lot of tightly coiled s-curls. Styling this type of coily hair can go both ways: leave it as it is or get it straightened out. Either way, it looks great.

Type 4B

For type 4b coily hair, the curls are more Z-shaped than the more common S-shaped. If you touch this type of hair, it is very soft and more fragile.

Type 4C

This is basically the same as 4B but it has more Z-shaped curls and as such keeps a specific afro like shape.

Thick Hair

There is somewhat of a misconception with thick hair. Most people think that once they have a full head of hair, then they have thick hair.

Even though this is true in some cases, it is not a one size fits all. There is one simple litmus test for finding out if you indeed have thick hair. Take one strand of hair and rub it between your forefinger and your thumb. If you can feel that strand, then you have thick hair. An easier way would be to ask your Goumin approved hairstylist.

You could also try another test to determine if you have thick hair or not. Pull a portion of your hair, as if you were trying to tie a ponytail. If you can easily see your scalp, then you probably do not have thick hair. If you have thick hair, you can also have any of the other hair types; curly, wavy, coily or straight. When it comes to hair types, women usually combine texture and thickness.

Thin, Fine Hair

Finding out if you have thin or fine hair is just as easy as finding out if you have thick hair. You only need to take all the steps outlined above and if you get opposite results, then you probably have thin and fine hair. Do not be alarmed though, having thin hair does not mean you are going bald. Or that your hair will start falling out. It just means that your hair might look like there is not that much of it there, even if there is.

There is an easy fix to this as there are several products out there that are designed to thicken thin hair. Of course, you have to be careful with the products you use as not all of them are right for your hair.

Now that the different hair types have been discussed. Next, have a look at which hair products are great for which hair types!

The Best Hair Products For Your Hair Type

In your search for that perfect hair product for your hair, please avoid using several products on your hair at once. Using several products creates a product buildup. It has a tendency to block your pores. This in turn increases your chances of getting dandruff and oily hair and slowed hair growth. Remember to keep your hair product routine light and simple.

Getting this right is not so hard, just follow some simple tips. Here are some hair products that are generally available and the hair types that they can be used on:

Hydrating Shampoo And Conditioner

This is one product that every woman should have in her shower. It does not matter what hair type you have. You need to make sure that you are giving your hair the perfect base to work from when styling any particular look.

For dry and thick hair, you might want to spring for a moisturizing shampoo that locks moisture in your hair. If your hair is lighter, you can go for shampoos or conditioners that provide lighter conditioning.

Thickening Spray / Mousse

Thickening sprays are products that you can you for both thin or super fine hair and thicker hair. It helps to give you a consistent thickness throughout. Thickening sprays will work best for you if you have medium or thick hair. They might not necessarily give you thicker hair, but provide more hold on your hair. If you do want a lighter hold, you might want to spray only a little.

Hair mousse also helps you define your hair curls or straighten your hair. Whatever hair type you have, to straighten your hair, apply the mousse using your fingers to rake the product through your dry hair from root to tips. Then finish it up by flattening your curls with a brush and high heat. If you want soft waves, then you can comb the mousse through your wet hair and then diffuse or simply leave it to dry.

Styling Crème

These are your modern-day gels, they work quite well on all hair types and also provide loads of moisture. A good tip is to use the styling crème with a round brush so you can come away with polished ends. It could also give you great volume if applied using a blow dryer. If air-dried into your hair, they can help you reduce frizz and also help you hold your natural waves.

When choosing what type of crème to use, you should put your hair texture into consideration. If your hair is fine and straight, consider using a lightweight crème with a bit of hold. If you have thicker hair, a more calming crème will do. This also has the added benefit of reducing frizz and will help slim down thick hair.

Flexible Hairspray

This is another product that every woman needs in their hair product arsenal. It is a versatile product that can protect your hair before you use a curling iron on it. They also help to reduce frizz.

They can even help to freeze your hairstyle in place. You can use hair sprays on hair of all types. When using hairspray, you don’t have to be conservative, spray it like you mean it. It contains alcohol so it evaporates quickly. Also, when using hairspray, hold the can about 10 inches from your scalp and then spray.

Hair Lotion

Hair lotion, also called styling lotion is a product that offers more hold than a mousse, but is less stiff than gel. Hair lotion is perfect for you if you have thick, straight or coarse hair that is curly. To use hair lotion, rub a bit between your palms and then rub into your wet hair from the root to the tips.

Straightening Balm Or Serum

Straightening balm or serum is the best way to weigh down curls and achieve a slicked-back look. If you blowdry your curls straight, this is the product for you. This product is perfect for thick and curly hair. To use straightening balm or serum, rub some into your strands a few inches from your roots. This is important so as not to flatten your hairdo.

Conclusion

It is a world full of choices out there, you need to have the right information to make the right choice for your hair. Be patient, learn about your hair, choose which products work best and you will be on your way to hair heaven. Remember that regardless of what hair type you have, there is a hairstylist on the Goumin app that can help you bring the best out of it. All you have to do is sign up and search for a hairstylist near you and choose the one that is the best fit for you. You can even schedule an appointment and make a payment within the app.

The Stylish Man’s Guide To The Right Hair Products

There are many types of hair that are common to different parts of the world. There are people with thin hair, thick hair, soft, hard, long, short and so many other combinations. With so many hair types, it can be difficult to find the right type of products to use on your hair.

Using the proper hair products is not something you should leave to chance or not pay attention to. You understand this more if you have had a bad run-in with the wrong type of hair products. That is one experience you want to be told and not experience yourself.

Your barber is the guardian of your hair, they get to help you choose the right hairstyle and the right products. So you can see that finding the right barbershop near your location is important to the health of your hair.

Barber apps are the way to go to make that search go a lot smoother. The Goumin app is the barbershop app of choice for many men of style. If you want to keep your hair looking like a million bucks, then you need to know how to take care of it.

First, how can you keep your hair game tight?

What You Need To Know About Hair Products

The hair care market is a billion dollar industry. To add some clarity, here are some statistics. In an average drugstore, the hair care aisle is stocked with an average of about 600 products. Yes, 600, and this is in contrast to the average of 400 products in the skincare aisle. That is a lot of products for you to choose from. The interesting thing is that you would think that with all those choices guys would actually make use of these hair products. Studies have revealed that only a small percentage even bother to use hair products at all. Upon all the pomades, hair waxes, gels, hair creams and so on that are available. It seems like all those choices is very confusing for guys.

Choosing the right hair product is actually not as difficult as it might seem. You only need to pay attention to some important factors. Here are some useful tips that will help in picking the right products for your hair:

– If you see any product that is labeled shine, it is likely to make your shaved head look like a polished cue ball. Anything shine gives a glossy finish to your hair. But, if you see a label that reads matte, then it is likely one that will help your hair absorb light. This means it will do the exact opposite- make your hair not shine.

– The next useful tip that you should pay attention to is what is called holding power. This right here is what mainly distinguishes different products. They all have different holding power. You will see them categorized as low, medium or maximum-hold.

These categories of products are usually interchangeable, they mix together. A product with high shine could also be a medium hold product, and there are so many other combinations. The important thing for you as the user is to look for the right combination that best suits your type of hair or the hairstyle you are looking to get. A good barber will know these different types of products and which ones to recommend for your hair.

Now, to take a look at some of the hair products that are available in drugstores and beauty shops. Then, to go deeper and see what type of shine and hold they have and what hair types they are suitable for:

Gel – High Hold, High Shine

This is probably the most common hair product that men use. You could say that every man has used hair gel on their hair at least once in their lifetime. Now, gels can come with several hold strengths, from low to maximum. Gels keep your hairstyle in place all day without moving. When you see an awesome looking spiky ensemble that is looking sleek on a guy’s head, then it is probably some form of a gel that is holding it in place. But there is a catch. Because of how good gel is at holding hair, it does have some disadvantages. Here are some of them:

Flaking or residue

This is more likely to happen to you if you are fond of running your fingers through your hair. If you have some gel in there, your fingers might come away with some flakes or residues from your hair.

Excessive hair drying

Here is another issue you should be careful about when using gels. Gels generally contain alcohol and some other types of chemicals which help to keep the gel dry. They tend to dry out your hair very quickly too.

Because of these same chemicals, your hair and scalp tend to dry out, causing itching and dandruff. Also, prolonged use of gels could lead to your hair becoming brittle and it could break. It can also become frizzy and hard to manage without product.

You can see that gels are great for your hair. But, you also need to be careful not to overuse them because of their side effects. Also remember that for some flexibility in styling your hair, you should go for a lighter gel with low hold. Generally, most gels give a high shine.

Wax- Medium Hold, Medium Shine

Hair wax is a versatile hair product that can be used for several hairstyles. From messy I-just-got-out-of-bed looks to hair spikes. Hair wax could give your hair either a shiny or matte finish.

If you have straight hair or if your hair is slightly wavy, this is the product for you. It does tend to get clumpy when used on curly hair. It is also a more manageable hair product than hair gel. You can restyle your hair during the day, you don’t have to keep the same hairstyle all day.

As far as their hold strength is concerned, waxes are like pomades, but they have a lighter hold. They will give your hair a medium to a high shine, but will not hold it so much. Hair waxes are perfect for hairstyles that require that you comb your hair. Hairstyles like a pompadour or the classic side part.

Pomade- Medium Hold, High Shine

Pomades are generally made from mineral oils and they are meant to make your hair look neat and slick. Pomades are the best type of product for combed hairstyles. They have some advantages over gels. Pomades do not make your hair dry or hard. They are also malleable enough to allow you to style your hair whenever you want throughout the day. There are two types of pomades for the stylish guy:

Oil-based Pomade

These pomades are made from petroleum or grease. This makes them generally less expensive than water-based pomades. There are some disadvantages to this type of pomade though. When you are washing them out from your hair, they tend to take the natural oils in your hair along with them. Your hair might start to look unhealthy after a few times of doing this. Also, because they are heavy, they tend to clog up the pores in your scalp. This could lead to annoying buildup and acne.

Water-based Pomade

Water-based pomades will hold your hair the same way (okay, maybe not so much as oil-based) and give the same shine as oil-based pomades. They will then do you one better by not washing out all your natural oils. They are soluble in water and are easily washed away. They also provide you with flexibility, you can restyle your hair whenever you want.

One thing you should know about pomades is that they are creamier than waxes. This makes them the perfect product for curly hair or thick hair. You can get light-medium and light-hard hold pomades at beauty shops. They are great for slicking back and clumping together curly hair.

Clay- High Hold, Low Shine

This is basically a stickier version of a pomade; it tends to have a more impressive hold on your hair. This product also gives your hair a fuller look, adding some weight and body to your hair strands. It is easily absorbed into your hair without leaving any streaks.

You can use clay for your hairstyle if you need volume but also don’t want the product to weigh down your hair. Using this product also gives you some cool benefits. Let’s take a look at some of them:

– Clay products will remove impurities and dirt from your hair without removing your hair’s natural oils.

– It contains nutrients and minerals which help to nourish your scalp and hair.

– Clay can also help you maintain your hair if you have frizzy or long hair.

This product does not give too much shine; it gives you a matte or semi-matte finish. It also gives your hair medium to high hold.

Paste- Medium Hold, Medium Shine

Well, you hear paste, you think something thick, right? And that is exactly how it is, these have a thicker consistency than pomades. If you want a versatile hair product, then you are going to like pastes. Hair pastes can be used for basically any hairstyle. They are also almost always water-based, so washing them out is not an issue.

One good tip for applying pastes with thicker consistency is to rub it between your palms before applying. This helps you apply it in a uniform manner throughout your hair. Once you are done applying and you style your hair, just let it sit for a bit. Then the magic happens, the product cools and thickens, firmly holding your hair in place.

Pastes can also give your hair some texture and volume if you add the product before you blow-dry. Paste usually gives a little bit of shine.

Cream- Low Hold, Medium

Creams give your hair a soft shine that looks really good, and helps you control your locks too. Creams are perfect for you if you have thick, coarse or curly hair. They also contain amino acids natural oils and moisturizers.

If you have hair that is difficult to tame, hair that is always flying every which way. Then creams are the way to go for you. They give your hair flexibility and strength and won’t weigh your hair down like wax or gels.

There is one important distinction with creams though, they provide almost no hold. They act as a conditioning lotion for coarse and thick hair. They are great for de-fluffing or de-frizzing curly and thick hair.

Creams are also good for those that are losing their hair to baldness. Or men with fine hair who do not like the greasy feel of pomade or wax.

Hair creams provide a really soft hold, so they are recommended to be used as a pre-styling product. They add shine to your hair and also make your hair easier to separate.

Mousse

This is the volume master in the hair product world. A lot of men would normally think twice before using this product though. Maybe it reminds them of some unflattering hairstyles of yesteryears. Anyway, mousse is a product created to give your hair some body, shine, and a light hold.

It is one of the few male hair products that come in a foam form that surrounds your hair. It forms what is called polymers which makes your hair look fuller. Not many men would want that lion-like mane fullness, but mousse is the friend of men with thinning hair. There are some that are specially formulated for men with such hair.

To have that full look, you need to apply the mousse to the roots of your hair and then blow-dry upwards. One good thing about mousse is that if you have the habit of running your hand through your hair. You will not be left with annoying flakes and residue like you would with gel.

To get the best results, you can use the mouse in addition to another hair product. You could get your initial volume with mousse, and then you can use hair paste to shape and bring definition to your hairstyle.

Hair Serum

Hair serum is also called smoothing fluid, gloss or polish. It is a bit fluid and slick in consistency. It is a great way to reduce frizz and make your hair sleek and smooth.

Hair serum is great for long, brittle or curly hair. Because it basically coats the hair, it could also soften it. Alternatively, if you only want to get a quick shine on your hair, you can add a few drops of serum to your wet shampooed hair and rinse.

This is a tricky product for men to use because most men would not want to go through the application process. But it can still be useful in adding some shine to your hair after towel drying.

Hairspray

This is one product that does more to add some finishing touches to your hairstyle than the actual styling. A quick spritz of these products sets your hair and prevents it from flying every which way. This is another product that is a bit more women-directed than men, but men can still make good use of it.

There are usually three types of hair sprays based on their holding power. Flexible-hold hairsprays are great for long hair and have just enough holding power to reduce frizzing. Medium-hold hairsprays are perfect for hairstyles that need volume but without the stiffness that comes with other products. Maximum-hold hairsprays are heavy-duty and keep every strand of hair locked in place throughout the day.

Things To Note

It is very important to make your choice of hair products based on your hair type and texture. As a general rule:

– If you have short and fine hair and you want it to stand up- use gels or wax with a strong hold

– If you have longer hair, you can choose from the range of products depending on how full you want to go

– If you have thinning hair, avoid heavy oil-based products like cream or pomades. They tend to weigh your hair down and it won’t look good

– Do not just rub hair products smack on your hair, rub a little into your palm, then gently massage into your hair from back to front.

Conclusion

This here is your guide to getting the best out of your hair products. Using the right one each time helps your hair be the best it can be. You do not want to make the mistake of using pomade when a cream would do, the horror! It can be a bit hard getting all those products right in your head. That is why you need a barber that can always show up for you and give you the best advice regarding the products to use.

You can use a haircut app like Goumin to find such great barbers near you. The Goumin app can also be used to pay for your haircuts and schedule appointments.

There are some with curly hair for days, while some have straight hair that cannot hold a curl to save their life.

Straight and Thin

You could be born with Latina hair that is straight and thin. This type of Latina hair requires very little attention and does not hold curls. The one thing you should remember to do, though, if you have long and straight hair, is to wash it frequently. Your scalp tends to produce quite a bit of natural oils and such.

These oils tend to flow all the way down to the ends of your straight and thin hair. This is because there are no curls to “catch” the oils. So you are faced with a two-sided coin. On one side, your hair is always soft, moisturized, and manageable because of all the oil. On the other side, your hair tends to get oily very quickly, so you have to shampoo often.

Straight and Thick

You could also have straight and thick Latina hair. You will need a different type of hair product for this type of hair. For thin and straight hair, you would need products that make your hair appear fuller. But, for straight and thick, you will need hair products that moisturize rather than add volume. With this type of hair, natural oils will still saturate the straight hair. But, the thicker strands will absorb them better. So you might still want to moisturize the ends because the natural oils might not reach those places.

There is also the soft wavy hair that Latinas have. This type of hair always looks flat at the top and drops in waves. It is fine and thin with a little texture that can be reduced or improved depending on what you want to achieve and the hair products you use.

Beach Waves

Your hair could also have some well-defined waves. This type of Latina hair, called beach waves, looks really good. If you need a visual representation of this type of hair, you might want to take a look at Jennifer Lopez. If you have this hair type, your curls are most likely resistant to styling and have a medium texture. Litmus test? If you have to put more effort to get your hair straightened with a hairdryer and brush, then this is most likely referring to you. Your hair probably gets frizzy, you should look into using a dry shampoo. Then follow that up with a frizz-fighting gel to keep your waves and moisturize your hair.

Tight Waves

There is another type of hair that holds tight curls. Shakira is the best example of a Latina with hair in tight waves. This type of hair is quite coarse and thicker, and much more resistant to styling. As you can imagine, this hair frizzes easily. You will need a leave-in cream serum to keep those waves pristine. You should also moisturize frequently as your hair will get dry more often than not.

Large Curls

What about large curls? With this hair type, the curls are very well defined, big in diameter, and bouncy. The large curly hair is easy to style and you can easily straighten it. You can try doing that with a blow dryer. To make sure that your curls keep being beautiful and bouncy, you need to use the right products. Get oils and creams that provide a light moisturizing effect and that also help define your curls. Do not go for heavy creams that can weigh down your curls. Also, try not to comb or brush your hair after applying your cream and oils. Use your fingers and a diffuser.

Corkscrew Curls

Corkscrew curls hair has very tight curls and fine texture. This is what is called curly or kinky hair. If you pull out any strand, you will see that it is light and curly. This comes with its issues as this type of hair is often dry and fragile. This is why you will need to apply rich products. Think butters, thick and heavy. This will sit on the hair and keep the hair moist throughout the day to reduce frizzing.

Now you have taken an excursion into the different types of Latina hair out there. You should find out where your hair falls in all these categories. It will help you on your hair journey. It is also good information to give your hairstylist.

The next useful information that you need now is which hairstyle to tell your hairstylist to give you. There are several options to choose from, just pick whichever one works for your type of hair.

Hairstyles For The Fabulous Latina Lady

Thick and full hair is one type of hair that offers several styling options. The hair is plentiful, so it means you can do a lot of things with it. The only issue here might be the actual weight of the hair. Latina women might want a hairstyle that is more weightless, it does get tiring carrying all that hair around on your head. With the right type of haircut though, you can make that thick and unruly hair a thing of beauty. You could make it even lighter without losing the fullness of your hair.

Let’s have a look at some of these jaw-dropping hairstyles.

Layered Hairstyles

Layered hairstyles are a great way to style thick and full Latina hair. Layered haircuts are also great for different facial shapes. If you have a round face, a proper layered haircut helps to elongate your face. If you have a long face, a layered haircut with bangs is the way to go. Here are some layered hairstyles that could work for you:

  • Bob With Layers

With thick hair, most people think that going short will make your hair look boxy and unflattering. This is not particularly true, especially if you choose the right type of haircut. A layered bob can help you tone down all that volume.

Your hair gets to fall either loosely or in straight lines down the sides of your face. This look is hard to get, so you might need some help. The Goumin haircut app is where you want to go to find the best hair stylists near you for these types of haircuts.

  • Shoulder Length Layered Cut For Curly Hair

If you belong to the curly-haired group, here is one for you. Okay, it is not a secret that for shoulder length curly hair, your hair getting frizzy or poofy is a concern. But the beauty of this hairstyle is that if your hairstylist cuts the layers well, these concerns are a non issue. All your hairstylist has to do is to integrate at least 3 levels of layers into your hair. This allows it to fall smoothly down your shoulders in waves. You know the best part? You are definitely going to get such savvy hairstylists on the Goumin app.

  • Long Layered Haircut

One way to handle your thick Latina hair is to cut it in layers to thin out the strands. Get rid of all that pesky bulk. A long layered cut will do this for you and more. Adding some texture with a large barrel curling iron will make it look even better. It will give it a lighter look and also keep that full-hair beautiful look going.

Bobs

Bobs are another type of hairstyle that helps to tame thick and voluminous hair. It helps your hair look thinner without necessarily losing volume. It also looks really good, you just have to choose a style that works with your face shape. You can choose from any of these bob hairstyles:

  • Voluminous Stacked Bob

This is a very sophisticated way to wear your thick, short and straight Latina hair. Have your hairstylist give your hair an inverted bob cut. Complete with stacks at the back and long front layers that frame your face and cradles your jawline and chin. Perfection!

  • Smooth Lob

If you have straight thick hair, this is the hairstyle for you. To make it look even better, instead of bangs, try getting layers in front that flare backward. This makes the hair look soft and mobile. If you are going for a bob, you do want it to have movement. If you want to add a pinch of class, keep the lower layer uniform in length.

  • Disconnected Choppy Wave Lob

Getting your hairstylist to give you a disconnected lob is the best choice for thick curly hair. Or any hair that becomes frizzy in some climates. The clashing and uneven edges are added on purpose and give a rustic feel to the look. Very little styling is needed, just shake your damp hair and you are good to go.

Shags

The Shag is a very “messy” hairstyle that oozes retro-chic, casual and looks like it was thrown together in two seconds. A shag has choppy ends like a blunt knife has been at your hair. It also has several layers around the crown and plenty of texture. The shag, in its various manifestations, is a good hairstyle for thick Latina hair. You do have to be careful to not get a shag haircut that looks too dated though. Keeping the layers down is the way to go.

Here are some shag hairstyles that you can try out:

  • Edgy Medium Length Shag

This is for you if your thick frizzy hair has been somewhat damaged by too much processing and rough styling. This style is like a makeover for bad hair. Cut all the ends that are frayed and frazzled. All the bad parts making your hair look like it has been through an apocalypse. The actual cutting doesn’t really matter, just keep it shaggy and uneven. You could add some highlights at the tips to make it even edgier. You cannot go wrong with this.

  • Long Shag With Bangs

If you are fond of your long hair and want to keep it that way but also want something different, this is for you. You can have long feathered layers with some slight highlights. Of course, have your hairstylist give you those layers in a shaggy drape. Add the finishing touch of a side bang and you are off to the ‘70s.

  • Short Blonde Shag

If you would rather not take the long trip to the ‘70s with your shaggy haircuts, then you should consider this one. This short shag hairstyle with choppy and blunt layers is the definition of modern and edgy. What’s more, it is absolutely perfect for thick hair, especially if it is coarse.

Braids

Braids are one of those hairstyles that just works regardless of hair type or color of skin. It has been around long enough to cement its place in the hairstyle hall of fame. For thick Latina hair, braids are an easy way to tame your stubborn tresses. Do not look too far, here are some great braid styles for your thick and luxurious hair:

  • Edgy French Braids

This is a beloved style of many celebrities, it is stylish, and gives you a chic look. To get the look, you can ask your hairstylist to section your hair into three. Clip the three pieces separately to keep them from merging. Pick a section and start French braiding and then tie it off to make a long tail. Do the same for the other two hairpieces. Final touch, give it a little spritz with hairspray and you are done.

  • Pony Express

This is a great way to tame your thick hair and transform it into something that can work for a party or the beach. This is a technical one and you might want to get your Goumin approved hairstylist involved. To get this look, rub some mousse into your damp hair and pull it all into a ponytail at the top of your head. Then spray some hold hairspray on it and start braiding. Braid from the top to the bottom.

Whenever you are ready to go to your party or wherever you are going, unbraid about half of the ponytail. Depending on the texture of your hair, it would either look wavy or crimped. But it is definitely going to look good.

  • Braided Side Pony

Who doesn’t love a side pony? It is one of the sexy and playful braid hairstyles you can get. To give the basic look some extra oomph, spray some sea salt spray on your damp locks. Then you can braid the ponytail from the elastic all the way down. Make sure to leave some unbraided hair at the ends. To finish the look, go ahead and pull the braids apart. You will get that I-just-got-out-of-bed textured feel that absolutely crackles.

  • Braided Updo

What are braids without an updo? This entire look is about balance. That is creating a balance between the hair in front and the bun-braid at the back. A good place to start is adding a volumizing mousse to your damp hair before you blow-dry. Then you can use a curling iron to create some cool waves throughout. The next step is to tie it all into a loose ponytail below the neck. Braid the strands and wrap it all into a low bun. Spritz away with some finishing spray to make sure everything stays.

Conclusion

Phew, it has been an interesting look into Latina hairstyles for the classy woman and how to keep your thick locks looking great.

Latinos are known all over the world for their suave and sexy looks. Latino men are very conscious of how they look and this extends to their hair. If you are Latino, you understand that having a good looking, well-styled hairstyle is not to be joked with. Considering the thick and sometimes unmanageable hair that Latinos have, this might seem to be a tall order. The good news is that there are haircut apps available to help you out.

The Goumin app is a great platform where you can be sure to always find professional barbers near you. It is also a barber appointment app where you can book your appointments in advance. All these functions are at the touch of a button. So if you have the Latino, hard-to-style hair, you can have the Goumin app helping you every step of the way.

It is time to get down to brass tacks. What types of trendy and sexy hairstyles are best for a Latino guy?

Trendy And Sophisticated Latino Hairstyles

Latino guys have a lot of experience when it comes to looking good and sexy. But, Latino hair is not the easiest hair to manage. It is coarser in texture, darker in color, and thicker than hair from most other people.

This is why anywhere the hottest hair trends are being discussed, you will always see a representation from Latino guys. You only need to check the major style and fashion magazines to see for yourself.

Latino hair usually takes a long time for proper styling and shaping. Imagine having a full head of thick hair. How much product and patience will it take to style? But still, Latino hairstyles are the bomb. Here are some nice styles you can consider sporting:

Comb Over

Have you ever watched any Latino or Mexican movies or seen a handsome male actor? Chances are that he was probably sporting this hairstyle. It is the perfect accompaniment to a handsome Latino guy. The hairstyle is best for guys with straight and thick hair. The cool part of sporting this hairstyle is that you can totally make it your own. It all depends on the cut you get and how you style it.

One of the really popular comb over styles is the comb over fade. It is one of the most requested hairstyles in barbershops today. To get this look, give your barber a ring or drop a text on the Goumin app. You will have to grow your hair out to be able to get the effect right. Your barber can then make the hair on top of your head into a high comb over. The side fades can be high or low, depending on the vibe you want to put out. A high fade gives a more edgy and boyish look, while a low fade looks more professional.

As for the top of your hair, your barber should use a pair of scissors on your hair so you can have about 2-3 inches of length. This will provide you with a range of options in styling. You could go for comb over, quiff, spiky hair, or pompadour whenever you are bored with the same old hairstyle.

To make your comb over work, you will need some kind of wax or pomade. You can work it into the hair on the top of your head to give that glossy finish. Comb it all to the side and create a side part. Just like that, you have your cool comb over ready to rock.

Spikes

This is a hairstyle that is normally popular with Asian men. But Latino men can pull it off because of how thick their hair is. The style is very cool, and it helps you manage your hair at the same time. The style requires very little maintenance. To achieve spikes, you need to grow your hair out until it is about 5 inches long. You can then use hair gel to make sure the spikes remain spikey.

The Undercut

This sophisticated hairstyle is easy to get and style, and looks very sexy. To make this look happen, you will have to grow your hair on top to be a bit longer, then the undercut can be done on the sides. To finish up, apply a good gel on the top of your hair and style it in a rough way to give that rustic and masculine look.

The Fade

The fade is a haircut that is extremely popular among guys. It is a low-maintenance and versatile hairstyle that does not require much styling. Of course, it would be popular, right? Looks good, easy to get, and requires little maintenance, you might want to sign up for this one.

Another reason could be that there are many types of fades that you can ask for. Also, you would have noticed that modern hairstyles have been quite fade-focused in the past few years. Long hair on top that can be styled in several ways, plus a fade at the sides and back. Whether you want a high, mid, low, tapered or skin fade, there is always a fade for every guy. Latino guys are not left out of the popularity of the fade hairstyle.

To get the perfect fade haircut for yourself, you need to communicate well with your barber. It could be harder than you think to choose the right fade haircut from the many available. Get an appointment with your Goumin vetted barber to choose the right fade for you.

You could try the high fade haircut. This style features a fade that starts right at the top of the hair. This one creates an obvious contrast between the long hair on top and the short hair at the sides. This is a good one to go for if you want the eyes of people around you to keep going to your hair.

The low fade haircut is also a good one. Here, the fade starts much lower, just above the ear and the neckline. This gives your hair more texture on the sides and less contrast between the top and sides. If you have long or medium length hair and you want it to look thicker, this is the way to go. You can also rock this look to work, it is a more professional fade haircut. Mid fade is also a good one if you are not sure of going high or low. Your barber starts fading your hair from the middle of the head. It offers you more creative styling options too.

The different fade haircuts require different styling and are appropriate for different occasions. Make sure you have a long chat with your barber before you decide which one to go for. It is not a good look to sport a fade that does not necessarily fit you. Your hair is too important to your entire look not to get your hairstyle right.

Quiff

This is a beautiful hairstyle for Latino men with thick hair. The modern quiff is cut with long hair on top and short sides. This hairstyle pairs well with a fade or undercut, which makes it stand out.

Styling your quiff with at least 3 inches of hair on the top is easy, and it does not take hours to get it right. You will need the right barber to do the styling though. The hottest version of the quiff that you want to try out is the messy textured quiff.

To achieve the look, rub in some product, and blow-dry backward. Your barber might have to spend some time getting this right, but it will be worth it. It gives that relaxed and sexy vibe, and it is low maintenance to boot. What more can you ask for in a hairstyle?

Textured Crop

A messy and textured crop is one cool way to style short hair. The distinguishing feature of a textured crop is the short length and frontal fringe. The short fringe adds another style element to the look that just works. The textured crop makes your hair much more manageable and low maintenance.

You can also decide to combine the textured crop with a fade on the sides and back or you could go for an undercut. If you go for a fade, it could be high, low or middle, depending on your style preference.

To get this look, you will need plenty of hair wax or clay. You can go for the matte or the glossy one depending on the kind of finish you want. One rule to follow: apply thoroughly and leave the hair messy.

– Slicked Back

Here is another classic hairstyle that you can go for, it works for any face shape and hair type. The best and most popular version of this hairstyle is the slicked back undercut. But, there are others that you can try out too.

The slicked back can be paired with any type of cut on the sides and back. You can choose from high or low fade, disconnected undercut, or even tapered or skin cut. You can ask your barber to cut it the way you want it.

The next step is to decide how much of your hair you want to leave on top. For your slicked back hair to look good, you will need medium to long length hair. It provides more volume which makes the slicked back hairstyle catchier.

To get this look, you will need to get some hair product. A good one to use is a strong pomade, apply some on your hair and comb back. Do not allow any strand to stray, if there are any, apply some more product and comb back again.

If you are looking for a modern look, go for a matte pomade or wax, it will give you a more textured finish. If you want to go classy, then get a shiny pomade for that greasy look. If you do not want to go through all that trouble, you could just lightly brush back your thick hair. If you can pull off the carefree, I-don’t-care-how-I-look, but I do care a little look.

For Latino guys, the slicked-back hair is both classy and professional. With little effort, you can get a stylish look.

Faux Hawk

This is a popular haircut among Latino boys. Also referred to as the fohawk, it is like the Mohawk, but less flamboyant. It is still a hedgy cut though and is not for everyone.

To get this cut, you need to get the sides cut really low and then keep shorter hair on top of your head and at the back. You could also taper the sides instead of cutting way down to the skin, depending on the look you want.

To get a fohawk, get on your Goumin app and contact your barber. The look can be achieved by fading the sides of your head while leaving a few inches of hair on the top. The trick to learn here is to know how to make the fohawk stay in place. You can apply a strong pomade to the hair on top and then push the hair up and towards the middle. If you did it well, you should have the hair in the middle pointed all the way up and with more volume. This style is perfect for Latino men because of their thick hair.

The Latino Urban Teen Haircut

This hairstyle is very unique and different from what you would normally see around. It features long sideburns that drop all the way past the earlobes. The front hair is then given a straight cut so everything is of the same length. The hair at the back and top are cut low. This is a hipster look that is great for younger Latinos that want to make a statement.

Buzz Cut

The buzz cut is still one of the most masculine haircuts for men, whatever color, shape or size. But it is particularly great for men with thick hair who are okay with not showing their scalp. You could also tell your barber to give you a fade at the sides if you do not want it to all be uniform.

If you are in the market for a simple hairstyle that is stylish, easy to make and does not need much maintenance, then this is it.

Crew Cut

The crew cut is also known as the Ivy League haircut. It is another classic hairstyle that only requires minimal maintenance. For this one, you will need to grow your hair a little longer and then pair it with faded or tapered sides.

Because the hair on top is longer in this style. You have the option to make it side-swept with parting at the side. Just apply some product and sweep your hair on the top up and to the side, and you are done.

This is a less severe look than the buzz cut and can be a good look for casual or semi-formal engagements.

Choosing the best hairstyle for yourself as a Latino can be difficult sometimes. But, one thing you can do to make it easier is to always consult your barber and discuss the kind of look you are trying to sport. For this, you can always rely on the Goumin app to link up with some of the best hair stylists near you.

The Goumin Haircut App

The Goumin app is a haircut app that offers great services for all hair types, including Latino hair. You can get the best barbers for your type of hair on the Goumin platform. It is as easy as tapping a few buttons, and you are good to go.

How To Handle Slippery Asian Hair

Before discussing the different hairstyles that are best for Asian hair, it is important to have an idea of the structure of female Asian hair and how to care for it. It is also important to make sure that you get a hairdresser that is experienced in cutting Asian hair. Not all hairdresser can do it well. Even if you get a great cut and leave the hair salon grinning from ear to ear, there is still a final part you need to nail. The styling, you have to understand how to style your Asian hairstyle to give the best overall look.

Asian hair is probably the slipperiest hair you will find anywhere. It is usually silky and smooth and feels slippery to the touch. Of course, not every Asian woman has hair like this. But it is a pretty accurate description for most Asian hair. Another interesting fact about Asian hair is that it changes form and shape like a chameleon. Some Asian women have been known to say that their hair could be silky-flat-iron-straight one day. The next, it has become all curly and bouncy. Interesting huh? The bad news about this is that it is difficult for this type of hair to hold a particular style. Whether an updo, a wave, or curl. This is a great bother as the whole point of a hairstyle is having it stay in place.

The secret to making a style stay in place on Asian hair is to create some texture. Texture is the name of the game and you have to play for keeps. Here are some of the ways that you can do that:

Use Texturizing Spray

Spraying a good texturizing spray on Asian hair gives it a piecey look that makes the hair so much easier to style. Get a good texturizing spray today, you will be glad you did.

Dry Shampoo

The original use for this is to soak up some oil from hair that has been out for a day or two. But, in this case, dry shampoo can be used to give some texture to freshly-washed hair. You just need to be careful of the one you buy, get one that is meant for dark hair.

Matte Shape Paste

This product has a very thick consistency, so it works well as texturizers and volumizers. It allows you to create your own hair volume from the roots up. It is actually a very nifty hair product to have if you can get a good one.

You could also check out volumizing spray for more volume. This is applied to towel-dried hair right before applying shampoo. It adds volume to the root and crown. Another great option is Mousse. Of course, the product fell out of favor a few years back but it is making a strong comeback. It aids in adding body to the crown and root of your Asian hair.

Asian Hair Curls, Anyone?

Because of the slippery nature of Asian hair, it is quite difficult to get it to stay curly. It’s not impossible though. There are some tricks that can be done to make it happen. The first of these is to use texturizers and dry shampoo as discussed above.

Another interesting method is to go the way of Princess Leia buns. Some popular bloggers have talked about this unusual process. It involves twisting your medium length Asian hair into Princess Leia-like buns. This is done after spraying the dry hair with some texturizer spray and water. The buns are secured in place and unwound to reveal perfect curls a few minutes later.

There’s another weird process that was made popular by vlogger Vivian Vo-Farmer. It is like the one above but with an added twist (pun very much intended). She, first of all, made twist braids on either side of her hair. She then winds the braids into Princess Leia buns. She goes to bed like that and wakes up in the morning with the most gorgeous curls.

If you want to get a bit technical, you can go for the Korean Digital Perm. This process does not really give you curls, you come out with waves. The process involves soaking your hair in a perming solution. Your hair is then passed through heated rollers. This is an interesting one to try out.

Now you have a better understanding of how to handle your silky Asian hair. It is time to go through the various popular hairstyles that you can create with your hair.

Short Cropped Hairstyle For Asian Women

This is one for the books, it looks way different from the similar style usually made by western women. This one is cut in a softer way and has ends that are heavily tapered to flatter the Asian woman’s delicate features. There is also a front quiff that keeps the hairstyle edgy and sexy.

Another added feature that can potentially elevate the look is a subtle side parting. This, with a tuft of hair partially covering the ear, makes it even more adorable. It is actually a fact that short haircuts work really well for people with black hair. For the best finishing for this hairstyle, keep your hairstylist close and your Goumin app closer.

Modern Shaggy Asian Hairstyle

This funky hairdo was one of the most popular hairstyles in the 1970s and girls are still rocking it well, even now. It is a hairstyle that gives a rough look to the usually sleek and shiny Asian hair. The style is reminiscent of the shaggy mane of a strong lion.

To add even more spice to this cool style, some cute bangs can be added to the overall look. What about some nice highlights to give it that feisty look? You can style the basic shaggy Asian hairstyle in a variety of ways.

Another way to go with the shag is to go the boyish shag route. It is a form of shaggy Asian hairstyle that is cut short and looks, well, kind of boyish. Not many women would want to sport this look, of course, but it is sure to make you look wild and sexy if you are brave enough. Know what makes it even better? Almost no maintenance needed. You only need to dress up.

The Bob

A lot of Asian girls have round faces, so a hairstyle that beautifully frames that round face has got many votes. This is why the bob hairstyle is a favorite among Asian women. It is also a favorite because it can be styled in many different ways. It means that when you get a bob, you can keep changing your look with a few additions or subtractions.

The round bob with a front bang is a crowd-pleaser. The front bang gives the basic bob hairstyle an added cool factor. What if you want to join the cool bob gang but you don’t want to lose your length? Then there is one style that can work for you; the long bob or the lob. You cannot go wrong with this trendy style that interestingly, is just as versatile as the short bob.

What about getting yourself a wavy bob? Yes, this baby is possible even with short hair. You really do not have to have long and luscious curls to pull off this look. A cross between waves and bob, a marvelous match indeed!

Bangs

Time to talk bangs. You cannot talk about Asian hairstyles without mentioning bangs. There are different styles and different bangs to choose from. The straight bang is one hairstyle that adds a youthful and edgy vibe to any look. Wispy bangs feature a few wisps of hair dangling over the forehead. There is a lot of movement involved here for those that do not mind.

Another great option is the blunt bang. This one is a perfect option for the typical Asian girl. With your thick and straight hair, this hairstyle is a cinch. This kind of fringe does require a bit of maintenance for ladies with wavy hair. But Asians do not have that issue, you can sport the look without any issue.

High Pixie

The high pixie is a great hairstyle for Asian women with short hair. The high pixie is also a great choice for girls with unruly and thick hair. It does not aim to tame or suppress the unruly mop of hair. Rather it works alongside it and presents it in the best possible way. That is the high pixie hairstyle for you. That being said, you do need some regular maintenance to make sure that the top part is neat.

You can also add some waves to your pixie hairstyle. It sure will brighten up the entire look. You could also decide to get the side-swept pixie. The trick here, though, is to add some really good volume to the front of your hair. This can be easily done by making use of a volumizing spray.

Stylish Asymmetry

This is the Rubik’s Cube of Asian hairstyles. Getting yourself a stylish and asymmetrical haircut is not the easiest thing to do. This hairstyle requires serious expertise and skill. You should not even attempt it without a competent hairstylist taking the reins. You will need your Goumin app for this one. Get on it to find the best hairdresser near to you for this look.

One more important thing to note is that this look requires perfectly straight hair. This is the type of hair that is quite common among Asian teenagers. It takes some skill and some time too, but the final result will be well worth the trouble.

The Side Part

The side part is a beautiful hairstyle, it gives an innocent vibe that not many hairstyles can match. It is a perfect hairstyle for girls with round faces. This is because the hairstyle makes the face appear longer. As per hair types, this is a one-hair-fits-all kind of hairstyle. It goes well with all types of hair, especially fine hair. If you have fine hair, you might want to look into this as your go-to style.

The Hair Tuck

This one is pretty interesting. How many times have you seen a lady’s hair tucked behind her ear and you thought “that is such a bad habit?” Well, you should know that there are some hairstyles that are made with that exact “bad habit” in mind. For the hair tuck, the hairstylist styles your hair in such a way that it is easier to tuck your hair. This is the perfect hairstyle for girls that are hair tuckers but still want full hair.

Braids

Yes! You can switch up the style and wear your braids in several different ways. You can get the crown braid which is a simple style that has loads of appeal. Maybe the milkmaid braid is more your thing if you want to go more formal.

So there you have it, the list of really cool and amazing hairstyles that you can try with your hair as an Asian woman. Depending on the type of hair you have, you can choose the right hairstyle from this list. Straight and thick hair, wispy, wavy, it does not matter, you are covered.

Fabulous hairstyles are cool, but a hairstyle is only as good as the hairstylist. This is why it is important for you to have a great hairstylist on standby to attend to all your hair needs as they come up. Goumin app can help you find the perfect hair stylist for your hair with just a few clicks.
