If you’re a girl with fine hair, then you’ve probably wished for lusher, more voluminous strands about a million times. The key to making your hair look fab is the right cut and length to promote movement and a style that adds volume. We give you some awesome cuts and styles that will make your fine hair look fuller and thicker. Get ready to fall in love with your locks!
1. Sexy Bedhead For Long Hair
Shorter styles are always recommended for fine hair to help it look fuller, but if you would prefer to keep it long then loads of texture is what you need. Messy, windswept hair is sexy and nobody will be able to tell how fine your locks are. Just use a sea salt spray and scrunch, tousle and twirl your long strands for that straight-out-of-bed style.
2. The A-Line Bob
An A-line bob is a super chic style, where your hair is shorter at the back and angles into a longer front. It’s edgy and suits all face types. What’s so great about this haircut is that you don’t need to spend ages trying to style and straighten your hair, it will look great with your natural texture whether it’s wavy or curly. With this gorgeous cut, you don’t need to rely on too many layers to give you that much-coveted fullness.
3. The Braid Effect
The best part about a braid is that no one can tell how fine your hair is. You can make every braid look thicker and fluffier by simply pulling each loop gently. What’s so great about this is that it works on any kind of braid, so a girly braided do should definitely be a style of choice for you. Remember, braids work for any and every kind of occasion.
4. Choppy Layers
Ask your stylist for choppy layers to instantly give your thin hair loads of texture. They work great for shorter crops and even if you like to keep your hair long. Remember that hair looks thinner on long hair as the length weighs it down; choppy layers will help reverse that effect by bringing movement, fullness and texture. Just rough up your style by tousling your layers to add even more volume.
5. Flip Your Part
This is the easiest and quickest way to fight flatness! When you’ve had the same part for a long time, your hair tends to get habituated to it and lies flat on that side. Flip your hair over to the other side, use some texturizing spray on your roots (if you want) and that’s it – instant volume! It’s simple, it’s free and can be done in less than a minute.
6. The Big Bang
Strong bangs are a fantastic idea to help your strands appear thicker. There’s a bang to suit everyone. A choppy fringe is great for bringing texture and volume to lifeless, thin hair. Sleeker, side-swept bangs also help redefine a look instead of having your hair fall plainly around your face.
7. Curly And Carefree
Fine hair is infamous for looking limp and lifeless, but it’s also perfect for curling and letting it run wild as it won’t look as OTT as thicker hair. No matter your hair length, using a curling iron, scrunching with your fingers or using styling products like mousses and sprays – they all can help bring plenty of life and character to your mane. Curls and waves will give your locks texture and volume and no one will know how fine your hair actually is.
