Finding the Right Hair Style for Fine Hair

Dec 18, 2007
Contrary to popular belief, fine hair is not the same as thin hair. You can have a lot of hair and still have what is considered fine hair if the length of the individual strands is shorter than average. Thin hair can be hard to style, and is sometimes more prone to slow growth than other hair types, but if you are a fine-haired individual searching for the perfect cut, there are many different options.

For shoulder length and longer fine hair, layers are a way to add dimension and create the illusion of thickness. Be careful, though, not to add too many layers, as this can cause a collapsed look, since very fine hair is not able to hold the shape of multiple layers. Your beauty salon stylist will be able to help you select the layer length and quantity that will work best for you. This may include light layers or feathering, or graduated, razored layers for a more precise, defined layered look.

The bob hair cut is a classic, and works well with most all hair types, including fine hair. A chin-length bob can create a full, sleek look, especially when combined with pomade and a smoothing leave in product. Bobs are a hairstyle staple, due to the fact that they make all hair look fuller and thicker, and work well with multiple hair types. There are different types of bobs, so be sure to choose the one that best compliments the shape of your face.

With short flips, when your hair is sparse or thinning, wearing it cut close to the head and flipped just under the ears can also create the illusion of a thicker than actual mane. This style is also easy to care for, and requires little maintenance.

With bowl cuts this type of hair cut is centered just above the ears and works well for those with sparse or thinning, in addition to already thin, hair. This style creates the illusion of thicker hair, and is a classic cut that has been around for nearly a century.
Be sure to use a thickening shampoo and conditioner daily, and keep hair trimmed, since thin hair with split ends looks weighed down, dull, and lifeless.

Another trick that the pros use is a rounded bristle brush, which lifts and separates the natural layers of the hair, and can help maintain the rounded shape of many hairstyles. Remember that only your qualified, professionally trained beauty salon stylist is the best resource when it comes to determining the best look for you.
