ESC: Hairline


We draw the line here—literally.

Celebs go through great lengths to get fuller lips, smaller waists and even seemingly perfect strands. Of course, no small detail is overlooked…even if it's hair-thin.

In fact, many stars know that the trick to amazing tresses involves a solid hairline.

"It makes your hair look fuller and makes you look younger," said celeb beauty guru Suzie Kim. "It brings more attention to your features. Like how brows frame the eyes, this frames and shapes your face."

Whether you have too little hair or more baby strands than you can handle, Suzie shared three tricks of trade to an A-list hairline below.

Hairline Piece

To get a defined hairline on par with Kim Kardashian, take excess hair from somewhere else and create an illusion. Grab a long piece of hair from the area around the base of your neck, "which is very thin and mimics the hairline," advised Suzie. Wet it, apply a small about of gel and twist it to get the piece as sleek as possible. Pull it tightly across the front of your head and secure it with bobby pins. If your hair is too short to go fully around the head, try braiding your existing hair (kind of like a French braid) into the gelled piece to elongate the length. Pull it into a ponytail to hold the pieces together. Pro tip: Hair needs to be tight, so a slicked-back hairstyle works best. Also, this won't work with a head full of highlights or multi-processed colors.

Hair Shadow

If the previous technique seems like too much trouble, hair shadow is your best friend. Essentially eye shadow but for your hair, Color Wow products are a celeb hairstylist go-to (just ask Ouai founder and Kardashian mane pro Jen Atkin). Even though the brand's Root Cover Up is meant to camouflage grown-out highlights, it works wonders to fill in hairlines as well. The product washes out with next your shampoo and leaves minimal to no powder fall-out.

"Apply the powder right at the part to get a sharp line," said Suzie. "Like eyebrows, draw a line so you don't see any peaks and valleys—it's all one fluid shape."

Laser Hair Removal

Then there's the stray baby hair that make having a sleek, straight look almost near impossible. For this, you may want to take a more aggressive approach: laser hair removal. "I have the hairiest forehead you could ever imagine, and I would always break out and get all cracky on my forehead just from all the hair that I had," Kim K. told People. "If you Google 2008 or 2007, I had the craziest, hairiest hairline, so I did laser it."

How does it work? In a nutshell, the heat from the laser damages the hair follicle, which then inhibits hair growth. It takes a suggested five to six sessions and can range from uncomfortable to moderately painful but it is effective.

Now you tell us: Would you fill in your hairline?
