Fine hair can be challenging for both stylist and client. However, with the right cut, style and use of products, your fine and/or thinning hair can be transformed into a beautiful head of hair. Fine hair performs better when it is cut with the growth pattern of the client and usually left a bit longer for the style the client desires.

Hairstyle for Fine Hair Classic Bob HairstyleFine hair has a tendency to part along natural part lines and lay lifeless upon the head. With longer layers, even in shorter styles, the head gains more coverage and movement using the hair and when employing volumizing products or sprays, the hair retains its shape following the styling process. Many shampoos and conditioners contain heavy humectants that weigh fine hair down. When choosing products for fine and thinning hair, it is important to choose agents that keep the hair as balanced to its natural Ph as possible so that it remains strong, shiny and responsive to your hairstyle demands.

There are a few hairstyles for fine hair for you to try:

The Classic Bob - If you have a lot of hair though it is fine or thinning, you may enjoy the simplicity of a classic bob cut to just below the ear or below the chin which will provide volume at the ends. You can backcomb the hair at the crown to gain a bit of height and if you are experiencing a bit of thinning in the front, you can use clip-in hairpieces matched to your hair color to fill in thinner areas of your style.

Hairstyle for FIne HairA Graduated Cut - One way to the illusion of more hair is to adopt a graduated cut that starts out more tapered around the nape and angles into longer layers towards the top of the head. This allows for the hair to stack upon itself through this cutting technique and the hair to move throughout the style. Texturizing the crown or other areas framing the face will allow for volume and movement. It is a fun and carefree style for all ages!

Longer Layered Cuts - These cuts especially when paired with multi-dimensional color techniques can be textured and defined to be bold, dramatic and full-bodied. Framing the face with peek-a-boo bangs, straight bangs or long bangs at cheek’s length will set off the flirty locks resulting from this layered cut.

Hairstyle for Fine Hair Short and SpikyAsymmetrical Cuts - These dynamic cuts bring a lot of attention and often are masterful in camouflaging the fact that it is cut into fine and thinning hair. These cuts allow for all short-to-medium length styles, can include close-cut napes or graduated angles from tailored nape cuts. This style sweeps from short-to-long and one side to the other and allows for many volumizing techniques to be used for variety in the style.

Short and Spiky - Cuts that bring the hair’s length to 2-3” can be texturized and shaped to the head to create fun voluminous spikes on top and tapered to the neckline for ease in styling and care. Using dimensional coloring techniques can also create depth in the style and create the illusion of a fuller head of hair.

Hairstyle for Fine Hair Soft and WavySoft and Wavy - If your hair is between chin and shoulder lengths, then you can create soft waves to spice up your style. Fine hair is beautiful when styled in soft waves through the use of a larger curling iron and by wrapping the hair in a spiral formation on the barrel. Spritzing your hair with a finishing spray while curling will help set the waves and to finish the style, just bend over and finger through the waves!
