Women with fine and thin hair are on an endless hunt for a hairstyle that makes their hair look fuller and thicker. You need to find a hairstyle that looks great with your face shape and your lighter hair and this can be tricky. But with a few cuts and styling tips, you can make your hair look fuller and still use the length and cuts that are recommended for your face shape.
But, you also grow tired of the same old haircuts. These 5 fresh haircut ideas will make your thin hair look full of body but they’re also versatile enough to work with your face shape as well as personal preference.
Long Bob with Wispy Face-Framing Layers
A long bob with deep side-part and wispy face-framing layers will have your hair looking luscious and thick. The key to making a shorter cut look fuller is to avoid a lot of layers. However, a lot of face shapes benefit from a few layers. Keep them subtle and just around the face to add shape without removing weight. This look is perfect for straight, wavy or even curly hair too.
Shoulder-Length Cut with Long Layers
Women with thin hair generally have naturally sleek hair too. This is perfect for a longer length and long layers. Remember to avoid choppy layers because it will remove all the weight you need for fuller cuts. But by adding a few different lengths throughout the length, you can create more volume and body throughout your locks. This is another look that works well with all face shapes and hair types.
Blunt Long Bob with Subtle Ombre
Some times, the best way to get a fresh new look is with a subtle hair dye and a healthy haircut. A long bob – just about your collar bones – with a blunt cut to give your hair as much weight as possible will make it appear thick. The ombre color will give it the body and dimension of a full head of hair – even with your thinner tresses. Style with some waves for even more body.
Angled Graduated Bob
A shorter cut always helps thin hair look thick. But sometimes you simply don’t want a short cut and this could be a compromise for some people. Graduated bobs are great for making your hair look thicker because the ‘stacked’ look in the back makes your hair appear full in the back. The angled look will frame any face shape well and also give you length so the cut isn’t as dramatic as a pixie or short bob. With this cut, don’t be afraid to add a few layers.
Teased and Curly
Regardless of your length and cut, there are two full-proof ways to spice up your look and make your thin hair look nice and thick: waves/curls and teasing. Teasing can be damaging to your hair so remember – everything in moderation. The waves will add plenty of fullness. However, if you have a round face shape, avoid big curls around the side of your face.
