If you have or thin or fine hair, you’re not alone! Judging by the huge number of volumizing and thickening products out there, limp lifeless locks are a common hair issue (even for the models featured in this post). In addition to boosting thickness with the right styling aids, hairstyles can also help pump up the volume. Check out these pictures for 4 cute and trendy long hairstyles for fine or thin hair.
A good blow out is one quick and easy way to amp up volume. Here are a few tips to get the fresh from the salon look at home. First, towel dry hair and gently squeeze excess water out before adding products. For a high volume finish, start with a mousse from roots to ends. Then add a volumizing spray at the roots and some heat protection spray or argan oil at the roots.
Now it’s time to start blow drying. The first phase is called rough drying because it’s less important than the final steps. Shaping hair happens between damp and dry, not wet to damp so just work hair with fingers until it’s about 80% dry, focusing on the roots and upwards motions.
For the final stage, hair will be dried in sections. Put hair up in a loose bun, leaving out a section at the back. The key to creating the smooth and high volume hair is tension from the brush. Wrap hair around the brush in phases. The first pass should focus on the roots, then the middle, and finally concentrate on the ends. Once the bottom section is dry, rework the bun to let the next section loose and work around the head in tiers. All brushing and drying should be in an upward motion to maximize curl and volume.
For another easy way to blow dry hair with volume, try adding rollers to the mix. This video shows you how.
One of the hot styles for 2015 is just messy enough bedhead. It’s not literally I-woke-up-like-this hair but a sexy, tousled style with fabulous volume. Try it as second-day hair with a blast of dry shampoo at the roots if you need for a boost of volume and to soak up oil.
This is more of before picture. It’s a totally acceptable everyday hair but not everything that thin or fine hair can be. Check out below for a total transformation with the addition of some loose curls.
Long, loose curls are one of the top hair trends for 2015 that is perfect for ladies with fine and thin locks. They are somewhere in between waves and curls for a glam but not overly formal look that is suitable for special days and evenings out. Even better, you can style the look with a flat iron or curling iron or wand, it’s all about what you have on hand and feel most comfortable using.
We’ll leave you with another tousled style. Note that all these ladies are wearing blunt cut hair to keep hair as full as possible. This version has a touch of layering around the face but it is very minimal. Try a texturizing product to get this cool and effortless looking style.
Make the most of long fine hair with styles that boost volume. For 2015 it’s all about sexy waves, sultry bedhead, or that perfect blow out. All of these looks are perfect for adding fullness to thin locks and on trend too.
