Hi there! I have long, fine, straight hair and not a lot of it, and every time I go to the hairdresser they insist on layering it so that it has more volume and bounce! The only trouble is that my hair is naturally sleek and straight so the bounce goes right out of my hair the minute I walk out of the salon. What I would like to know is this: would it be better to cut my hair straight across without layering it? Or do layers serve a greater purpose other than to add volume? I've resigned myself to the fact that my hair will never have volume, so I'd like to go for the straight, sleek look. Thank you!

Hi, having layers does not mean your hair will sit perfectly with shape and volume when you wake up in the morning. With your hair being fine and sleek, you have to be willing to work with your hair and spend time styling to have it sit the way you want it to. Applying volumizing products and blow-drying the hair will help achieve body. Using hot rollers or velcro rollers will also create the bounce and body you seek. So if you have the time to dress you locks, keep your layers and have fun with them. If not, then a blunt cut with no layers will give you a straight, sleek look. I hope I have helped. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.
