Taming those unruly and annoying baby hairs can be ten times more difficult than acing a new hairstyle. Without a hair gel or pomade, your baby hair is bound to stick up and behave unruly, thereby bringing your hair game down drastically.
While there is no permanent relief from baby hairs, all you need to do is master a few sneaky styling techniques to enhance what nature has given you. From wearing your baby hairs like sparse bangs or sweeping them aside neatly, here are a few brilliant and dramatic ways of styling your baby hairs...
Whether you’re styling your long mane in a high, voluminous ponytail like Rihanna or a sleek top-knot like Zendaya, you’ll always be left with a few baby hairs bothering you. To tame your baby hairs stylishly, simply take a light pomade and apply it onto your baby hairs. Then take a spooling wand or a clean mascara brush and swivel it back to reconnect it to your hairline. And voila!
Ever tried styling your baby hairs in a peculiar manner? Well, take some hair-spiration from Tessa Thompson and shape your baby hairs in a soft S-shape for an edgier look. Start from the middle and go all the way down to your ear. You’ll need a light pomade and an old toothbrush to create soft spiral with your baby hairs.
Allow your baby hairs to be the center of attention, especially if you’re styling your hair in sleek and pulled-back styles. FKA Twigs makes dramatic S-curls with her baby hairs while the rest of her hair is styled in boxer braids. To recreate a similar look, use your favourite hair gel and toothbrush and create whatever pattern you desire. Remember to flatten your hair on the edges of your forehead for a neater finish.
Let your baby hairs enjoy some drama for a change! Taking cues from Jennifer Lopez’s wispy bangs, brush all your baby hairs forward to make it look like bangs. Curve the ends of bangs for a more melodramatic finish.
On days when you’re just not in the mood to go OTT with your baby hairs, simply brush them down straight. To keep frizz at bay, blow dry the edges for a few minutes and wrap a silk scarf around the edges. This sweet and subtle way of styling your baby hairs can make a lot of difference to your hairstyling game.
