Fine hair can be great if you pick the right hairstyle and cut. If you have fine hair, you are in good company as you join the ranks of such superstar celebrities as Jessica Biel, Jennifer Aniston, and many others. If you color your hair, then color can add thickness and body to thin hair as well. But whether you prefer to color your hair or you just want the illusion of more volume for your fine hair, then consider any of these great hairstyles for fine hair, and try them on for size at your next appointment at the salon.
In general, expert stylists agree that fine hair can benefit from layers, asymmetrical cuts, and shorter cuts that can add volume and body. The longer and straighter fine hair is at an all-one-length style, the limper it is likely to look. Consider each of these cuts and decide if one will work with your unique lifestyle preferences and facial shape.
The layered mid-length cut is a great look for fine hair, and one that celebrity Jennifer Aniston has popularized worldwide. Here, you still have some illusion of length, as the mid-length cut can fall anywhere from the shoulders to just above the shoulder blades., but you also have added body and volume with the extra layers. To get the look, cut in a few longer layers, but not too many as to thin out the ends of your hair. Best of all, this look can be very easy to style and maintain for days about town.
Celebrities such as Eva Longoria Parker have popularized the chic short bob. With this versatile cut, you can choose to wear bangs if you have a longer high forehead or go for a bang-free sleek look if your face is round or heart-shaped. You can part your hair down the middle, to one side, wear it over the ear or tucked behind the ear, and allow it to go curly or sleek it down with a flat iron. The chic short bob is a great volumizer look for fine hair and can wear well casual or styled.
Adding bangs, if your forehead and facial shape allows, is a great way to add the illusion of volume and movement for fine hair. When you layer your hair to shoulder length and add in bangs, don't go too full with the bangs. Consider an angled bang that is wispy or thinned to lightly frame your face and give you movement and body overall. Add in a few layers to your shoulder length bob to just give you some more height at your crown, as celebrities such as Jessica Biel have done.
The asymmetrical chop bob is a great way to disguise fine hair. Your chop bob will be longer on one side than the other, with irregular ends that will function in essence as layers would to add body and volume, as well as visual interest.
