Hair classes

Which of our products are suitable for you?

In order to be able to recommend the right products for your hair, we have introduced the hair classes A, B, C and D. With the help of these hair classes you can filter our products, so you will find the hair accessories that fit your hair faster.
The hair class is composed of your hair volume and your hair length. You can find your personal hair class in the table below. Since the hair classes are a rough initial assessment, it is quite possible that you will also like products of other hair classes.

Hair length

  • Short hair - We define short hair as hair lengths where the hair reaches to the shoulder at the most.
  • Medium length hair - We define medium length hair as all hair lengths between shoulder length and chest length.
  • Long hair - As long hair, we refer to all hair lengths that go beyond the chest length.

Hair volume

Hair volume is the number of hairs regardless of their structure and length.
The easiest way to determine the volume of your hair is to use the ponytail test. Here you measure the volume of your ponytail. The best way to do this is to place the braid at the very top in the middle of your head in order to encompass as much hair as possible.

We distinguish the following three hair volumes:

  • Low volume - The braid circumference is less than 5 cm.
  • Medium volume - The braid circumference is between 5 cm and 10 cm.
  • High volume - The braid circumference is more than 10 cm.

Hair class

Using your hair volume and length, you can determine your hair class A, B, C or D from the table below.

Hair volume
Hair length Low (< 5cm) Medium (5-10 cm) Large (> 10 cm)
Short (up to shoulder length) A B C
Medium length (shoulder to chest length) B C D
Long (from chest length) C D D

Hair types

In addition to hair volume and length, there are also hair types. Although hair type is not as determinative as hair volume and length when it comes to choosing products, below is a breakdown of common hair types according to Andre Walker, purely for informational purposes.

Straight hair

  • 1a - Fine, thin hair that is soft and shiny, but difficult to shape into curls. The hair is resistant to external influences and not easily damaged.
  • 1b - Straight hair that is characterized by subtle waves and minimal volume. It is easier to manage than fine, straight hair and is easier to style.
  • 1c - Thick, heavy hair that is characterized by its robustness. People of this hair type are often found in the Asian region. This hair is very difficult to style into curls or waves.

Wavy hair

  • 2a - Fine, wavy hair that naturally takes on an S-shape. This hair is relatively easy to straighten or curl and is suitable for a variety of hairstyles.
  • 2b - Wavy hair whose S-shape is somewhat more pronounced and which likes to curl in the top of the head.
  • 2c - Thick, very wavy hair that falls in S-shape in distinct waves and that likes to curl a lot. This hair requires more styling effort, as it does not immediately adapt the desired shape.

Curly hair

  • 3a - Pronounced curls that fall loosely and are often accompanied by volume and frizz.
  • 3b - Pronounced curls that fall very tightly, helically or spirally from the top of the head.

Frizzy hair

  • 4a - Frizzy hair that mostly consists of a large number of helical, small curls and that usually grows very densely.
  • 4b - Frizzy hair, the small curls of which, in addition to the helical shape, also take on the accentuated Z-shape.
