The pixie is an obvious choice for thin hair. Longer layers keep have enough weight to keep hair in place while shorter layers add volume all around the head.
The cropped cut focuses attention on your features rather than your hair. It’s an easy wash and go look that looks great for with minimal styling and just a touch of product.
The bob is another great choice for fine hair. The defined shape of the bob, whether you get the look without or with thin bangs, adds the appearance of volume.
Like the pixie, the face framing bob focuses attention on you and not your hair.
Another great haircut for thin hair is the choppy bob, which can be worn short or long. The angled layers add texture and volume to fine hair that fullness all around.
Thin or fine hair can also be worn long. Shoulder length hair is a universally flattering look so a good length to end with for thin hair. The absence of layers means hair is full all around.
Even with thin or fine hair, bangs are an option. Side swept bangs (cut or styled) are also great for drawing attention to the eyes and away from the hair. Wispy bangs are plenty for this effect.
Finally, adding color can also give the illusion of thicker hair. Highlights and lowlights add depth fullness to fine or thin hair. Consult your stylist or colorist to get maximum impact with gentle products.
