If your hair is quite fine, you may find that it can often appear flat, limp and unable to hold volume. To add the illusion of body and thickness to your thin hair, you just need the right haircut! Always find a stylist who knows what they’re doing, and really listens to your thoughts and concerns.
Let’s take a look at three haircuts that will work really well for your fine hair.
Haircuts For Fine Hair
Shoulder-Length Blunt Cut
To pull off a shoulder-length hairstyle with thin hair, you should probably opt for a blunt cut, as this will make your hair appear much thicker.
Very long hair will create too much weight at the root, so thin hair should preferably be kept at shoulder-length or above.
The blunt cut was originally made famous by ‘coiffeur to the stars’ Vidal Sassoon over 30 years ago and is still popular today.
Deep Side Parting
If your fine hair is on the longer side, try a deep side parting. This creates the appearance of volume, as the majority of your hair will fall on one side of your head. Moving your parting away from where it would naturally fall also creates lift at the roots.
Easy to master, this hair style gives a volumous lift to longer, thinner hair and has been shown off to great effect by celebrities including Jennifer Aniston, Victoria Beckham and Nicole Kidman.
The shorter your hair is, the thicker it will seem, as it won’t be as heavy. Shorter hair is also much stronger, so your locks will reap the benefits if you opt for a super-short cropped cut.
A pixie cut with choppy layers can add lots of volume to finer hair. Use your fingers to apply a very light styling wax through the ends of your hair. This will give your new cut great definition, without adding too much extra weight.
Choosing A Hairbrush For Fine Hair
We recommend the Mason Pearson Pure Boar Bristle brushes for fine hair, such as the Pocket Hairbrush. If you have very fine or sensitive hair, then choose the Handy sized Sensitive Boar Bristle Brush instead. All Mason Pearson brushes are available in a choice of four colours.
