15 hairstyles for thin hair you'll be seeing in 2019
1. Voluminous pompadour
Thin hair can sometimes feel flat with a short cut, so if you’re looking for ways to give it a little more body, try this relaxed, swept-back pompadour style.
2. Tousled pixie
The reason Emma Willis loves this tousled pixie? Because it does a great job of making her short hair look super voluminous. The style is full of dimension and drama, making it the perfect ‘do to rely on when you want a look that’ll turn heads.
Editor’s tip: Thin hair may be easy to style, but it often falls flat. However, with the TRESemmé Collagen+ Fullness Thickening Balm in your life, you can add extra oomph to each and every strand, making it feel fuller and thicker.
To use it, smooth a small amount into the palm of your hand and spread evenly through damp hair before blow drying to achieve a plumper look.
3. Full fringe
Looking for bang hairstyles for thin hair? We suggest you take a leaf out of Nina Dobrev’s books and get a full fringe haircut. Doing so will make your thin hair feel thicker and fuller, especially if you team the look with some bouncy curls.
4. Deep side parting
You might think that side partings don’t work well with thin hair, but if you opt for a deep one like Emma Stone‘s, it can really look incredible and help create the illusion of thickness (since its parted off centre).
Create this polished style for your next night out by blow drying your hair to achieve this sleek, smooth finish.
5. Braided crown
Yes, you can create a braided crown with your thin strands! Rather than wrapping a singular braid around your whole head, you can create two mini braids, position them close to one another and pin them in place.
6. Angled bob
Bobs can look a little flat without the volume that comes with having thicker tresses, but make it an angled hairstyle and it’s a whole different story. Take this A-line haircut for example, its chic, flawless and all you need to enhance the appearance of your fine strands.
7. Flipped out bob
The ‘60s started it, but we promise you’ll be seeing flipped out bobs everywhere in 2019. The good news? Thanks to its feathery ends, this cut will inject thickness into your mane and allow you to get ahead of the hair curve.
Editor’s tip: Bob hairstyles for thin hair, like this one, really come to life with the use of a texturising spray. So, you should try working the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray into your tresses to give your strands a messy, cool-girl finish.
8. Choppy bob
Adding layers to your locks is one tried-and-tested way to make even the thinnest of hair appear thicker. And, this choppy bob is definitely one of this year’s most fashionable hairstyles for thin hair.
Lighter layers at the top create depth and shape while the lower layers add a feel of full, luscious tresses.
9. Wavy ponytail
