Tips & Tricks on How to Achieve the Perfect Hairline
When you look at yourself in the mirror, have you ever paid any attention to your hairline? Is it straight, is it round, is it a widow’s peak or is it receding? In today’s world, beauty trends go beyond perfect skin, hourglass figure, or extreme contouring. It can focus on the smallest detail you’ve never paid much attention to, for example, your hairline.
The perfect hairline, by celebrity definition, is a hairline that appears fuller in a smooth, subtle curve, and is free of baby hairs. As simple as it sounds, many of us aren’t lucky enough to be blessed with one. Even Kim Kardashian admitted on her own website that she has procedures done to achieve her photogenic hairline. “Every photographer would photoshop them (baby hairs) out anyway, and I thought I looked better without the baby hairs, though now I miss them.” However, multiple celebrity hairstylists backed up Kim K’s decision on achieving the perfect hairline permanently. “It makes your hair look fuller and makes you look younger,” said Suzie Kim, celebrity hairstylist. “It brings more attention to your features. It frames and shapes your face.”
“[The perfect hairline] looks fuller in photos and creates the illusion of depth. When I see a red-carpet look without it, I’m like,‘Who let her go out like that?’” - Justine Marjan, celebrity hairstylist.
Currently, there are four main ways to achieve the red-carpet-worthy hairline recommended by hairstylists:
1. Laser Treatment
Kim Kardashian and many other celebrities choose to laser off their textured baby hairs so they will always be camera ready. But, lasering off baby hair isn’t reversible. Even Kim K herself has admitted that she is envious of sister Kylie’s trendy wisps on many occasions. Beauty trends are as unpredictable as the weather. A smooth hairline is what everyone is raving about at the moment, but we don’t know what's going to be next. If you want to avoid having second thoughts years later, opt for a less permanent option.
The most popular and recommended method among hairstylists is to create the fuller hairline illusion by drawing it out. Celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan swears by the approach of using eyeshadow tomake the hair look thicker and fuller. She also suggested using root coverup powder in place of eyeshadows if possible. Glamtouché’s Root Touch Up Powder is a much better option for filling in hairlines. The formula binds perfectly to existing hairs and washes off easily with shampoo. "Apply the powder right at the part to get a sharp line," said Suzie Kim. “Like eyebrows, draw a line so you don't see any peaks and valleys—it's all one fluid shape.”
If your hairline isgradually receding and the problem is beyond a temporary fix, you should look into surgery options for a permanent change.Youtube beauty-guru Jeffree Star, has a picture-perfect hairline despite owning an extensive collection of wigs. He hasopenly talked about his hair transplant surgery on his channel. He stated that hair loss, thinning and widow’s peak were the main reasons behind his action. Beauty is pain, but no sacrifice is too much when it comes to things we’d do to look good.
Instead of faking the perfect hairline, there are also ways to help you grow or maintain a healthy hairline.
