How to maintain a damaged square ?

Timeless and elegant, the square cut is an essential part of the hairstyle, which crosses ages and fashions with taste. To wear it with style, you can twist it with a gradient.

What is the square gradient ? 

This technique consists of cutting some strands shorter than others to give movement and dynamism to the haircut. If the gradient square fits all face shapes, you should choose it according to the nature of your hair. 

The gradient square: for what type of hair?

Follow our guide to find the gradient square that suits you best.

On fine hair: gradient is the perfect solution for fine hair since it will create volume and thickness, giving the clever illusion of more hair mass. We advise you to opt for a short or plunging gradient square to accentuate this desired effect. Caution: be careful to slightly gradient the cut because a too pronounced gradient will make the hair thinner and impoverish a fine hair.

On thick hair: the gradient is essential to thin out thick hair, giving it movement and lightness. Opt for a long or medium-length square, with a localized gradation on the ends to guarantee controlled volume. Indeed, a too high gradient will unbalance and bring too much volume to this thick hair, which naturally displays a lot of matter.

On curly or frizzy hair: these voluminous hairs will appreciate the square gradient, ideal for thinning, lightening and structuring, thus avoiding the possible "helmet effect" of the square cut. In fact, tapering can be even more effective than layering on thicker, more voluminous hair. As with thick hair, gradation should be done on the ends to ensure controlled volume on curly or curly manes.

On smooth hair: light gradation is preferable on smooth hair, whatever the length of your square, in order to avoid the "rat tail" effect that can result from too pronounced gradation.

Finally, if you wish to add a fringe to your gradient haircut, we advise you to banish the straight and thick fringe. A fringe that is also gradient, tapered or curtain fringe will stick better with the movement and dynamism of your haircut.

How do I maintain a gradient square?

One of the advantages of a layered bob that appeals to beautystas is that it is very easy to live with and requires little maintenance, especially if you want to have a free and fuzzy, very natural haircut. However, to ensure that you always have a flawless gradient, we recommend that you visit a hair salon every two to three months to refresh your haircut. This is a hair appointment not to be missed, especially if you have bet on a short square, which can quickly lose its pretty, faded shape after a few months of regrowth.
