It’s normal to feel like you’ve been cursed by the hair Gods if you have fine hair, but the reality is that having thin hair is not as bad a juju as it was a few years ago. Not only are their hundreds of products available that help combat this hair type, there are also some pretty amazing short hairstyles for fine hair. We’ve chosen a few of our favourites to get you started.

Those with fine hair should aim to create volume where they can. A pixie cut is great for this as it allows for a thicker-haired look at the back of the head. Exposing your neck is also a great way to fake having more hair than you do. This style draws attention to the longer strands on your head too, and the two-tone colour difference gives it a trendy feel. Play around with colours for a style that complements your facial features best.

Finger Wave Bob

You don’t need particularly thick hair to get away with a bed-head look, and the length of this style creates the illusion of thicker locks. Draw attention to the textures and edges of your hair by keeping it wavy – this also allows for volume you might not have when straightening your hair. To create a tousled beachy look that holds, first apply Redken Curvaceous Ringlet Shape-Perfecting Lotion. Afterwards, let your hair air-dry to around 50%, before using Redken Rewind 06 texturising hair paste and Redken Wax Blast 10 hair spray. Follow this by giving your do a dose of heat at a low dryer speed. Finally, tousle your locks with your fingers and enjoy long-lasting waves with real body and dimension.

Short Side Part Cut

Keeping your hair short underneath and longer on top creates the illusion of thicker hair while drawing attention to all the right places. The side parting is not only super trendy, but also allows for more volume on the top of your head. Try to taper out the side with less hair so that your side part is clearly defined, keeping the top strands long enough to sweep over to the side.

Shaved Sides with Top Sweep

This style requires shaving the bottom part of your head, leaving the top strands long enough to sweep back in a style that suits you. It perfectly exposes the neck and ears, and draws attention to the top of your head, with the locks doing the rest of the work. Try Kérastase Styling Laque Conture, a finishing hair spray that’ll hold your hair in place without making it stiff. It will also add volume to fine hair, providing a 24-hour anti-frizz and anti-humidity benefit, too.

While these are just a few ways of styling fine hair, the options are endless. Adding texture and colour can make a world of difference, and the best part is you can play around with these existing styles to make them your own. In the meantime, try L’Oréal Professionnel Expert Serie Density Advanced Shampoo, packed with vitamin PP and Omega 6, your hair will get a healthy burst of nutrients to help strengthen and bulk it up.
