As graduation season approaches, choosing the perfect hairstyle under your cap can be a tricky feat. Fear not, as we have sought the expertise of Linda Miller, a renowned hairstylist, to guide you through this hair-raising quest.

Knowing Your Hair Type

Linda Miller emphasizes that understanding your hair type is crucial when picking the right graduation hairstyle. “If you have thin or fine hair, avoid straightening and adding extensions, as these can weigh down your hair,” she advises. Instead, opt for volumizing products and shorter layers to impart a fuller look. For thick or coarse hair, Linda suggests reducing bulk with texturizing techniques and avoiding blunt cuts that can make the hair look heavy.

Choosing the Right Style for Your Face Shape

“When dealing with curly hair, avoid razor cuts or thinning shears, as these can create frizz,” Linda Miller advises. Instead, opt for square or rounded layers to maintain the hair’s natural shape and texture. For those embracing their natural curls, Linda recommends products like curl creams, gels, or mousse to enhance and define their curls.
