Asimple shape is most flattering for thinning hair, says Dusan Grante, associate creative director at Sassoon salon in Tysons Galleria (703-448-9844, sassoon.com). “If a stylist is recommending significant layering, proceed with caution,” he adds. Agood stylist should also ask about what products you are using.
