The site showcases stylists’ professional expertise and promotes the latest industry innovations. Through smart, conversational content, Salon Secret brings stylists to their clients in a new way.

So, some would say you’ve been hard done by with hair that’s fine and sitting at a length that’s impossible to style. This opinion, however, depends on who you’re talking to. What we see is potential! Whether changing up your haircare regime, trying out new and improved products, or styling it in ways you never imagined – there are far worse things than fine, medium-length hair, and we’re here to prove it! 


Smart Styling 

When choosing a hairstyle, make sure you opt for one that is going to embrace and elevate the hair you do have, instead of drawing attention to its texture. Here are a few examples to get you started: 


Tousled Layers 

A layered haircut is sure to give new life to fine hair because it alludes to body and movement irrelevant of whether it’s really there. Opt for a balayage or ombre effect to complete an already-trendy look. 

Loose Pinup 

A piecey layered look paired with waves is beautifully chic, allowing the hair you do have to look its best. Keep things loose and messy to suggest thickness and to create a softer look around your face.

Angled ‘Do

An angled lob (long bob) that gently rests on your shoulders will add both body and shape to your fine hair. This look is also super-easy to style and requires little to no product to keep it in place.

Product Prep

While cleverly styling your hair is effective, the products you use are equally important when it comes to adding volume and preventing damage. Here is one of our favourites: 


Kérastase Bain Densité Bodifying Shampoo

This nifty product is designed to bring texture, substance and resilience to hair. It contains Stemoxydine to awaken dormant hair follicles, noticeably increasing the number of strands per square centimetre. It also includes Hyaluronic Acid, a natural salt that retains up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. Apply to damp hair, then cleanse, rinse and repeat for thicker-looking hair.
