For hair care professionals, baby hair is the extra hair around the hairline that is thinner, thinner, and shorter. Styling your baby hair can be a fun (albeit sometimes frustrating) activity when you have the right edge controls and tools. Smooth baby hair used to be just a simple technique to keep your baby hair in place. Today, baby hair is a hair statement that says "I know I'm cute." At the same time, I guess the smoothness that baby hair provides is the finishing touch you're looking for. Let's read on for a baby hair tutorial.
"Baby hair" is the thin, wispy hair that sometimes grows around the hairline. Also known as "peach down" or "vellus hair," these hairs are very different in texture from the rest of the head. This difference in texture often means these hairs are hard to style and they don't lie flat. They come in all shapes and sizes. Depending on your hair type and texture, your baby hair can be coily, straight, or somewhere in between.
Styling baby hair is a way for women to show the versatility and creativity of their hair and express themselves. A subtle design on the hairline can be a way to personalize your hairstyle. Anyone can have a ponytail or braid hairstyle, but if you know how to style your baby hair properly, you can upgrade your hairstyle!
Rather than brushing baby hair forward, as usual, try blending it by creating an inverted U shape like Zendaya. "You can take a toothbrush and comb your baby hair and spray the ends with a medium-strength styling gel," says one influencer stylist. "Gently begin to shape baby hair into place."
Roll baby hair into soft spirals, a look that adds life to Tessa Thompson's classic braids. Take the shortest pieces of hair along your hairline, use something like a light pomade and an old toothbrush, and slowly begin to shape the hair into a very soft S shape from the middle section to your ears. To make kiss curls, simply take a small section of baby hair and shape them into a J shape.
For more dramatic patterns like FKA Twigs, use a toothbrush with your favorite hairspray. A small brush can be used to flatten the hair around the edges of the forehead to create any pattern you want, like—guess what?—swivels.
What's chicer than a sleek bun? Yes: as seen in the picture, a smooth back bun with wavy baby hair makes for a seamless transition.
Talk to the sky about hairstyles. Megan Thee Stallion's bun is spiraled high, almost to another dimension. We'll appreciate its twisted structure, but at the same time, it's interrupted now and then by a clump of hair sticking out. The edgy edge of the bun was a perfect match with those soft scalloped baby hair on her hairline.
For starters, you always want to part your hair from your hair and slide them down. Comb out these hairs and then comb them in the direction you want. Make sure to use a comb that won't get caught in the hair and cause further damage, and use water if needed.
Now comes the fun part: swoop and style! Creating a swooping shape can make your hairline very natural, you should use natural bristles to brush on the edges. When styling, use the edge controls of your choice to shape the hair into the shape of the swoop.
The choice between lighter or heavier edge control is entirely dependent on the texture of the hair. Soft curls are the easiest hair texture to use with edge control, and correspondingly, heavier edge control is required for thicker hair.
When defining baby hair, the most important point is to deal with the details. For the finishing touches, take the tip of your favorite hair tool and define the shape by styling. Using a pointed comb won't interfere with the shapes you create with the bristles, and the fineness of the tip helps you add and define more swoops. Add a little gel to the tip of the comb if necessary, but this step is optional.
This step is optional and a lot depends on the texture of your hair and the type of style you want, but the spray can give your extra fringe shape and hold it in place. The spray can be applied directly to the tool you are using or directly to the hair, but be careful about the amount used. To make it last longer, tie a scarf around the edges and leave it on for a few minutes to let the spray work.
Baby hair is common in children, but you can still get it back in adulthood. Some adults have baby hair in their natural hairline.
Hair doctors believe that one of the first signs of male and female pattern baldness is the growth of vellus hairs, not terminal hairs on the scalp. It's common to have a few strands of baby hair on the hairline, but too much can indicate possible hair damage.
