How To Style Soft Hair With Unique Looks

Soft hair can be a blessing or a curse, depending on how you look at it. Without the right styling techniques, soft hair can come off looking limp and lifeless. But with the right tricks and products, even the most delicate hair can be transformed into gorgeous looks.

So if you're looking for some unique styling options for your soft locks, this article is for you.

Using Volume Enhancing Products

Volume-enhancing products are the easiest way to add body and texture to soft hair. Whether it's mousses, gels, sprays, or creams — volume-enhancing products are designed to add lift and thickness to any style. They work by coating the hair and providing a light hold that helps keep it in place.

To get the maximum volume out of your product, book an appointment with a reputable hair salon. Your hair stylist will start by sectioning off your hair into several parts.

They will then apply a quarter-sized dollop of product onto each section and then use their fingers or a brush to work the product through from root to end. Finally, they'll finish off with a blast of cold air from your blow dryer, and you'll have an instant volume that can last a long time.

Creating Textured Waves

If you want something a bit more interesting than just flat volume, why not try creating textured waves? Textured waves are a great way to add life to soft hair without worrying about it looking too stiff or unnatural. They also look great with any outfit, from casual to formal.

To get the look, your hair stylist will start by spritzing your soft hair with sea salt spray and then blow dry your hair in sections using a round brush. Once everything is dried off, they'll wrap sections around a curling iron (or hot rollers) until it forms an "S" shape. Afterward, the stylist will release the curl, then use their fingers to tousle them until they look broken up and natural.

They will then spritz everything one last time with hairspray, and you'll have beachy waves that won't lack any life. But as you can already tell, this is something that can take time, so schedule an appointment if you're looking for a little bit of extra help.

Adding Accessories

Soft hair doesn't always have to be styled in traditional ways — it can also be fun to experiment with different accessories.

Headbands are great for adding color and texture without weighing down delicate strands. They also come in various styles, from the classic velvet band to fun bejeweled pieces.

If headbands aren't quite what you're looking for, try adding bobby pins or barrettes for an unexpected twist on classic styles like ponytails or French twists. Soft hair usually has enough texture to hold the accessories in place, so you don't have to worry about them falling out.
