The woes of having fine hair that remains limp and lifeless are many, but the main volume-threatening culprit is your haircut.
While naturally thin hair strands need to be shaped and snipped to encourage a bouncier, Gisele-like volume, without the right haircut and technique no amount of curling, styling and pulling will give it the full look you desire. Bid adieu to lifeless locks and welcome major volume at your next hair appointment with these five best haircuts.
The Angled Lob
A carefully angled lengthy bob or lob that just grazes your shoulder is the perfect way to add shape and more body to your thin tresses. Add feathery layers and side-swept bangs to the mix and voila – you have a head full of hair same as Emma Stone's! This ideal illusion of volume can be created on straightened hair.
Light, long layers
All-one-length, blunt ends is the sole enemy of thin hair. If you prefer your tresses to be longer and want that apt amount of volume, request your hairstylist to introduce some texture on the hair tips. With slightly feathered and light layers enhancing the hair ends, the thin tresses don't look weighed down. Picture Cameron Diaz's perfect windblown waves, thanks to the subtle, tapered ends of her layers. Messy Cliché by Tecni.ART is a great pick.
A classic and flattering haircut, a ruffled bob is obviously better than a plain bob. Just the tiniest bit of an asymmetrical angle added onto feathered ends and light layers makes this an easily voluminous cut, same as Sienna Miller's.
An ultimately romantic hair cut, this hair trend takes the focus off your thin tresses and onto your gorgeous complexion. The layers add a classy dimension to your fine strands.
And finally, the trendiest haircut that is perfect for your thin strands is the Swag. Why, you ask? Well, the bangs provide shape and add volume at the crown while the stylish shaggy layers can be manipulated into beachy waves or curls.
