The wavy lob has become an obsession for women in the past year, making it one of the popular haircuts in the last couple of years. Not only does this hairstyle provide a certain level of edge and flair, but it’s also perfect in adding volume and texture yo your thin hair.

2. Long Hair with Deep Side Part

Even as simple as changing the parting of your hair can make all the difference in giving your hair more body. Try going for a deep side part and let the side with more fall naturally. Don’t use any products to flatten it. Then, scrunch your hair to give it more fluff.

Editor’s Tip: Give your hair an instant boost of volume and texture with TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo. It doesn’t just refresh your locks, but it can also prevent your hair from falling flat.

3. Pixie Cut

The best type of hair to pull off a pixie cut is thin or fine hair. If you’re looking for something that’s effortlessly chic and extremely low maintenance, then a pixie cut would be the perfect haircut to try.

4. Angled Bob

Looking for a haircut for thin hair that’s a bit edgy? An angled bob ought to do the trick with its elongated sides. To add more volume to this haircut, you can also blow-dry the back part a bit to give it more lift and body.

Editor’s Tip: Keep the frizz away and add more polish to your hair using Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream. Apply a drop of this cream especially on the longer sides to add more definition to your angled bob.

5. Full Bangs

Another trick in adding more vivacity to your fine hair is by getting full bangs. Regardless of how fine or thin your hair is, having thicker bangs that fall across your forehead can create the illusion of having fuller-looking hair.

6. Shoulder-length Blunt Cut

Short and medium-length blunt haircuts can naturally make your hair look fuller by giving your mane a more defined shape. But do make sure to keep it at shoulder-length at most because having longer hair can possibly weigh down your tresses and make them look flat.

Editor’s tip: Don’t let frizz and flyaways ruin your blunt, shoulder-length cut. Use Dove Straight & Silky Shampoo and Dove Straight & Silky Conditioner to keep hair smooth and soft. 

7. Long Shag

Add a bit of rock ‘n roll to your look with the long shag. A shag basically gives you uneven layers that are properly styled. Having these uneven layers can add more volume and texture to longer hair instead of having a simple blunt cut.

8. Long Layered Hair

Not into edgy layers? Go for something more feminine with soft layering. When styling, we recommend going for a blowout hairstyle or adding some soft waves, which could give your hair more volume but in a more natural way.

So which haircut for thin hair would it be? These haircuts add more texture, volume, and flair to your thin hair, so you won’t have to worry about having limp and flat tresses. But of course, apart from having the right haircut, also do make sure that you’re properly looking out for your hair with the right hair care products and habits!
