If you have fine hair, then you have probably experienced the dread and anxiety of getting your hair cut. It’s a common misconception that cutting fine hair will make it appear flatter or take away the volume that you are trying to create. We are here to break this myth and help you embrace your beautiful fine locks. After all, every hair texture has its pros and cons. The key to creating the illusion of thickness and volume is to get a cut that compliments and works with your hair. A good cut with absolutely change your outlook on your fine terraces, here are a few that we recommend!
Bobs are your friend
Without a doubt, the easiest way to bring new life into your fine hair is to cut off some length and let it be bouncy in a bold bob. In addition to a bob screaming “chic” there are endless ways to style it and you can add a ton of volume and texture. For fine hair, length can be a big issue, and if volume is the goal then you’ll need to sacrifice some inches. The amazing thing about a bob is that they come in a variety of shapes and personalities. Keep it super sleek with a blunt cut, or up the playfulness with some textured layers. Talk to your stylist about a flattering shape and your daily styling habits to make sure you will love it for months to come. The best part about this haircut is that you are going to instantly feel lighter and brighter. There is nothing like a good chop to make you feel brand new.
Bangs can make all the difference
There is no need to shy away from a good fringe when you are working with fine hair. Adding in a bold bang will actually help give off a more voluminous look since it adds more body to the front. Work in some layers to help keep things balanced and provide even more movement. The style of bangs is entirely up to you, straight across, curtain, or side swept. We do recommend leaving the wispy bangs behind and going a bit heavier for a more impactful look.
A deep side part
If you are working with longer locks and want to keep your length and simply create more lift, then try moving your part to one side. A deep side part is going to create the illusion of volume since your hair is grouped together dramatically. The best way to maximize this lift, is to have your hair cut specifically to this part. You want to add in some layers to frame your face and create even more movement. Talk with your stylist to determine the best way to style this look and create lift at the roots.
You can pull off a pixie
Pixie cuts are a bold move but since you have fine hair, you are the perfect candidate. Because the hair is cut so close to the scalp it gives off the illusion of thicker strands and more volume. When getting a pixie ask for a textured look with lots of layers for added fullness. In addition to looking amazing with your hairs texture it is also incredibly easy to style and one of the biggest time savers in the morning. All you need is a good styling cream to run through your short locks and your effortlessly cool vibe is complete.
