Fine hair has a small shaft diameter. You can have abundant fine hair or your fine hair can be sparse and thinning. While volumizing styling products, including shampoos, conditioners and sprays, can help your hair look fuller, you should also choose a style that works with your hair texture, creating the appearance of thicker, more abundant hair.
Close Cropped Cuts
Short haircuts can be ideal for fine hair. A short tapered cut like a pixie hair cut or a cap style with heavy bangs and short sides and back can offer an easy care choice for your fine hair. Bangs can disguise a sparse hairline, but these cuts do draw attention to your face and may be hard to wear if you have an aging neck or jawline or poor complexion. You can opt for a sleek and smooth look with these styles or add layers and texturizing products.
Bobs are typically blunt cuts ranging from earlobe to shoulder length, worn with or without bangs. The ends may be cut quite straight or in a more irregular fashion to add movement to the style. A short, earlobe to chin-length, bob is ideal for fine hair and can work with many face shapes. Tucking your hair behind your ears can create the appearance of more abundant locks. Adding layers to your bob can help bring out natural waves or curls.
If you do wish to wear your fine hair in a longer style, keep it shoulder length or only slightly longer. Get your hair trimmed regularly to keep your ends healthy. Add a few long layers around the face for additional volume, or have the hair cut at a diagonal angle with more length in the front than the back. Use roller sets, hair pieces, and light teasing to add volume when necessary.
