So many women struggle with thin strands that just lie flat on the head, with no shape and zero volume. There are certain haircuts and styling techniques that can provide body and texture to your fine hair. Here are some tips to perk up your hairstyle!
Soft Pixie Cut
If a pixie is your style of choice, it’s helpful to have petite features to pull it off properly. To give fine locks fullness, hair is layered in the crown and pushed forward to increase its height.
Here, top layers and fringe is the main focus. Move it forward with a round brush, lifting from the root are, while styling. One of this haircut’s other assets is the glossy hair color that adds dimension and lift to fine hair.
Soft Razored Bob
Razor cut layers add so much volume to thinner hair types, giving them an almost shag-like finish. Sweep fringe from a side part, so it softly drapes the face with a light, textured finish.
Snipping hair shorter in the back while letting front sections go a little longer promotes swing. Keep the movement going by having a few slender golden highlights painted through the front.
You don’t have to lose length to gain more volume; but you should plan to lose a few inches around the face – fine hair is best snipped above the shoulders with minimal surface layering. Shorter sections up front will help hair curve and swing around your features.
Try styling shaggy layers for volume by feathering them outward – this will prevent fine hair from falling flat. Create a part further back in the head, using a flat-backed brush to pull hair into flippy pieces, creating movement.
