Hairstyles for flat head shape?

Recommended Posts

Not sure how many people have this problem, it could be more common among Asians. The back of my head is quite flat, so whether I wear my hair in a bun or ponytail or just let it hang down in sleek straight style, when I see a picture of the back of my head, it just look painfully flat. My mother has the same head shape and she cut her hair very short, it's the most awful look bawling.gif

 

Here's my flat head:

I am hoping that someone could suggest more options to deal with this kind of head shape other than extreme (and time-consuming) curls like this:

Thanks!

I have the same problem, the top of my head is flat. When I wear a ponytail or some other updo it never looks right. It sits weird, and kind of sags. I haven't found a solution, it honestly sucks a lot. I never wear my hair up at all anymore. Sorry for no help.

My daughter has this problem and I searched high and low to find a solution and found several options. Firstly, certain coloring techniques combined with the following cuts actually help, such as ombre, balyage and strategically placed highlights. lob (long angled bob), asymmetrical bob or angled bob (long in front, shorter in back or if you want to have long hair get a disconnected cut. These actually are smart ways to add volume to the back of the head, which hides the flat aspect. The lob and varying forms of bobs use your hair to create layers underneath, which actually pushes your upper hair up, while still leaving it long enough to disguise your flat head. The disconnected layers haircut, which means you would add dramatic changes in the length of your layers around the back of your hair. However, I personally feel that going with different types of lobs and bobs are so much better. You can also do a dramatic side part, where you have tons of your hair parted and swept over to the other side and back, bringing in volume that way. The best option by far is to talk to your hairstylist to make sure they know you need maximum volume in the back, then they can go over the options I mentioned based on your face shape and even color to help. Ideally, choose a cut that is low maintenance. For several years I kept my hair short with angled bobs and asymmetrical angled bobs, if you go to a hairstylist that knows what they're doing and tell them what you need but you don't want to have to spend a million years on your hair everyday, you will be able to have that happen. I had one haircut where all I had to do was blow dry with a round brush the 1st layer in the back of my head and the layers beneath always air dried the same way. I also had ones that I just needed pomade or another product, scrunched my hair and it was done.  I have partial flat spot back there too. I keep a folder now with pictures of haircuts that work for my daughter. That way if she decides she wants to change it up, we can. Make sure when you pick out of these that you keep in mind your face shape. Remember color, texture (wavy, curly, perm, straight) etc can all help too. I hope this helps you and anyone else who is searching out there!

I think you should try hairstyles that can cover your head shape. Apart from it, hair extensions also hide the shape of your head, it will not only give you a different look but also give you an effective solution. To know more visit aysanhairdesign.com.au

    • Your skincare routine should involve the following  1. CLEANSE- Thats the main part of any routine. Cleanse two times a day-once in morning and other in evening. 2. MOISTURE- The key to any healthy skin is by moisturizing it daily. ,  3. PROTECTION AGAINST THE SUN- Protection against the sun is the most important for oily skin. I would recommend you to use  water-based sunscreen as oil based sunscreens make you look greasy. And the do's other than this -Remove makeup before going to bed Keep your skin and body always hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and vegetables that are highly rich in water.  
    • Makeup items and cooking recipes are essential part for every women in this world because they are really attached with their daily activity.
    • Smashbox photo finish primer! Smart choice, I LOVE IT! I also love Touchinsol no porelem primer. I really couldn’t live without either of them. I like to switch them up so my skin doesn’t get used to either one. 
    • I 100% agree! I feel as if makeup is my armor.  It makes me feel confident and in turn that makes me happy. Make up really does boost my mood and takes away some of my self hate. 
    • https://colourpop.com/ and https://www.morphe.com/ have great quality makeup for the price. I recommend maybe aN eyeshadow palette, a matching color lipgloss/lipstick and mascara. All these will be easy to find online. Colourpop has free shipping if you spend over $25, I believe. Morphe I think it is free shipping over $75.  Hope I was able to help even just a little.
