What are textured ends?

 Texturizing hair consists of taking different lengths and creating textures, lightness, or volume according to what you’re looking for in each particular look. 

What does it mean to texturize the ends?


Texturizing consists of giving some definition to the ends for the hair can create different effects.

You should know that the ends can be textured by haircuts, but also with some products.  The idea of texturizing is to create a relaxed look or “tousled hair effect.” 


Texturizing can create very bold looks with lots of volume and movement. It’s perfect if you want a messy, casual look.


What are blunt ends?

Blunt ends add lightness to the hair. The stylist uses thinning or razor-edged scissors to perform the technique.

 When the ends of the hair are thinned out, it creates an effect of less heavy ends or more body. 


What you should know about haircuts

As I said at the beginning, there are an infinite number of haircuts, and all the techniques can be combined. You can wear a straight cut and, at the same time, blunt the ends.


Alternatively, you can wear a bob and texturize your mane to make it look even more defined and relaxed.  Generally, textured and blunt ends are used to accompany or finish off haircuts with style and definition. 


What type of hair is suitable for textured ends?

Actually, textured ends suit all hair types.  In this sense, the difference is in the skill of the stylist. They know about hair types and how to texturize hair to achieve the desired looks.


In my experience, cuts with textured ends look great on curly hair     as they help define it.


Let’s take a case-by-case look:

  • If you have curly hair and want more volume and definition, the cut with textured ends is ideal for you.
  • On the other hand, if you have curls, but don’t want to add volume, don’t go for the textured ends.
  • If you have straight hair, the textured ends could look great as long as you don’t mind having a lot of body.
  • If you have straight, thinning hair, you could also go for a textured ends cut as you’ll gain volume and some lift at the ends.


Remember that  textured ends create a visual effect of fuller hair. 

So, whether or not to choose a textured haircut depends on your personal taste and the look you want to achieve. As I said, the textured ends cut can be adapted to all hair types and shapes.


Depending on how defined and messy you want your look to be, your hairdresser can texturize just the ends or more.

Warning:  If you like your hair super straight, I don’t recommend a textured haircut at all.  Why?


 Textured ends are ideal for women who don’t flat iron their hair. 

They look great on messy hair. Many hairdressers recommend texturizing hair when it’s in bad condition, as it allows you to take a break from heat tools and create a super tousled, modern look.


 If you think you’ll love textured hair, you can pair your new textured ends with some products that enhance them. 

There are many texturizing products on the market. I recommend using a spray texturizer if you have fine hair and a cream texturizer if you have thicker hair.

Which hair types are best suited for blunt ends?

 Remember that blunt ends are used to give a light effect to the hair. Blunt ends can be more or less noticeable according to what the stylist wants to create in your look. Let’s see in which cases I recommend blunt ends:


  • Manes with a lot of hair should wear blunt ends regardless of the cut.
  • If you prefer to wear your hair straight, you can still go with blunt ends. You wouldn’t lose the straight effect, but you would give that light effect so that your hair doesn’t fall super heavy.
  •  If you want a classic cut with perfect ends and some movement, blunt ends are definitely for you. 
  • Blunt ends make the hair look more polished and not so coarse.
  • Also, blunt ends take the heaviness out of your hair.
  • Or you can parade to create movement and also to polish and renew without taking away too much length.


What you can’t do is have blunt ends to create volume in the hair. The effect is exactly the opposite. So, if you want volume, blunt ends are definitely not for you.


Blunt ends = straight hair

Textured ends = relaxed hair

In this article, we’ve seen that texturizing and blunt ends are two very effective techniques for cutting your ends.

  • Textured ends give your hair more volume and movement.
  • Blunt ends ensures a neat and straight cut.
