Many women have trouble finding the perfect hairstyle. Having fine hair adds an extra challenge. Whether you want a get-up-and-go hairstyle or are willing to put in the work to fake the extra volume, there are a few cuts that will help you out. Try one of these hairstyles that more suited for fine hair.
Long layers like Jennifer Aniston concentrates the volume to the bottom of your hair, creating the appearance of full, thick hair. Avoid short layers that start midway through your hair. Where the layers start will look like the thickest part of your hair and can leave the bottom, longest layers looking thin and limp in comparison.
Curls like Jessica Biel’s add volume to thin hair. Using hot rollers or a curling iron to add big curls or beachy waves add volume to the hair. Big curls make your hair appear thicker. One trick to try is sleeping with a bun on top of your head. When you take it down in the morning your hair will be super volumous, so you can simply style and go.
Shorter bobs, think should length or shorter, are great for thin hair. Think of how fresh Jennifer Aniston's hair looked when she chopped her hair in favour of a shoulder-grazing bob. The length of the hair makes it lighter and easier to add volume to your do. A little hairspray, teasing or mousse can up your volume easily, and hold much longer than longer hairstyles.
Blunt cuts, like Gwyneth Paltrow’s, without layers in the front make thin hair appear more full. Ladies with thin hair can take a lesson from Gwyneth and avoid choppy layers, or face-framing layers. Her straight, one-length hair looks full and healthy.
Celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel and Gwyneth Paltrow all opt to wear a centre part on and off the red carpet. These ladies often forgo the dramatic side parts, since if hair is already thin, it’s best to keep both sides even. A side part exaggerates thin hair on one side, while making the other look full. Instead, add volume to either side of your centre part.
