Women with fine hair find it challenging to come up with hairstyles that will make their hair look thick. But the trick to creating a good hairstyle is to have a haircut that camouflages thin and lanky hair. With the right haircut, fine hair can also look quite stunning. The most important thing to remember while selecting a haircut for fine hair is that hair should not be too long. Fine long hair ends up looking scanty and limp at the ends making it difficult to style. Fine hair have a narrower hair shaft which makes hair appear thin. But there are many good haircuts to make fine hair look thicker. Given below are a few haircuts for fine hair that makes it appear thicker.
Angled Bob Haircut
A great haircut for thin hair is an angled bob haircut. To get this haircut ask your stylist to cut your hair in long layers at the front and sides with hair at the back kept shorter. Long layers at the front and sides gives thin hair a thicker appearance with added body and bounce. To style this haircut at home, you need to shampoo and condition your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner and then blow dry hair with a paddle brush. Blow drying with a paddle brush, lifts the hair roots and gives it a more voluminous look. You can also use a good volumizing mousse at the hair roots to give hair at the crown more volume.
Wavy Layered Haircut
If you want a mid length haircut that is suitable for thin hair, then go for a wavy layered haircut. To get this haircut ask your stylist to cut your hair in long layers starting from just under your cheekbones. Two to three layers are sufficient for hair that touches mid back. A few face framing pieces of hair at the sides will give it a softer look. To style this haircut, wash and condition your hair with a volumizing shampoo and shine enhancing conditioner. Allow hair to dry naturally before applying a coin sized amount of volumizing mousse to the crown of the hair. Apply texturizing cream to the hair ends so that they do not frizz up. Part hair at the middle and backcomb hair at the crown with a rattail comb to give it more volume.
One of the best haircuts to make fine hair look thicker is a shaggy haircut. To get this haircut, ask your stylist to cut your hair with short choppy layers at the front and back, with thinner layers at the back. Make sure that hair at the back is not too thinned out and wispy as it would give your face a disproportional look. To style this haircut, apply a bit of texturizing cream to the hair when it is still a little damp. Set two to three inch section of hair at the crown with hot rollers. This will give your hair a beautiful textured look.
Straight Haircut with Bangs
A variation of the classic straight haircut is the straight haircut with side swept bangs. To get this haircut, ask your stylist to cut your hair in medium layers at the back with shorter layers at the sides. Also get a side swept bang which is either wispy or blunt. To style this haircut, apply a pea-size amount of medium hold gel on the bangs and blow dry hair straight with the help of a paddle brush. A straight haircut like this makes hair look thick and bouncy.
Another great haircut for women with fine hair is the choppy haircut. To get this haircut, ask your stylist to cut your hair at front in such a way that it just grazes your collarbone. Hair at the back should be cut at least two inches shorter than the front. To style this haircut, a texturizing cream should be used at the hair ends and a volumizing mousse should be used at the hair roots. Create a side part to give this hairstyle a softer look.
Choosing haircuts that makes fine hair look thicker might seem challenging. But if you flip through some hairstyling magazines and have a discussion with your stylist, you are sure to find a haircut that suits your facial features the best.
