Let’s not sugar coat things: thin hair can be a major bummer. But don’t despair! Once you’ve nailed the styling know-how, there are plenty of easy hairstyles for fine hair that can help give your tresses the volume you crave.
With just a few twists and tugs (and the help of a few on-trend accessories), you can easily add some oomph to your mane and start rocking the look of your dreams!
Easy hairstyles for fine hair: 8 looks to try
1. Side-parted bob
Give the look of voluminous tresses with a side parting. This clever hair hack requires no skills and zero effort – so of course we love it!
Hair hack: Blow-dry your hair to one side (the side you don’t want your parting on), and when dry, flip your hair over to the side you want your parting to be. This clever hair hack will give you instant va-va-voom.
2. Boxer braids
Ask anyone with fine hair and they’ll tell you that braids are a lifesaver for limp locks. Fine hair tends to be wispier and therefore more prone to flyaways, so braids are the perfect way to keep your strands in place.
Boxer braids are one of our personal favourites, as they’re on-trend but also simple enough that you can do them before work while you’re still half asleep! All it takes is to weave a basic French braid and you’re out the door. Credit: @nachumkp
3. Sleek bun
Style Queen Kate Bosworth always wears her fine hair in immaculate updos for the red carpet and we think this smooth sleek midi bun is one of her best looks to date.
4. Curly ponytail
Few hairstyles can rival the practicality of a ponytail. Fine-haired girls may find that curling their hair with a curling wand will help to give the ponytail more body and volume, stopping it looking straggly or weighed down. Credit: @brittaandbear
Editor’s tip: To ensure your curls stay curly whirly all day long, remember to spritz them with a strong-hold hairspray, like the TRESemmé Ultimate Hold Hairspray, once they’ve had a chance to cool.
While some hairsprays can feel hard and heavy on the hair, this one has an ultra-fine, quick-drying formula, making it ideal for those with more delicate strands.
5. Blogger bun
Conveniently, though, it’s also one of the best easy hairstyles for fine hair, as the intentionally messy vibes mean you can backcomb to your heart’s content without having to worry about it looking neat. Credit: @ena.maria.b
6. Twisted braid
If you’re looking for an easy hairstyle for fine hair that looks far more complicated than it seems then you’ll love this rope twist braid. Spotted on actress Kirsten Dunst, this perfectly undone and textured style will give your fine locks a fuller look.
Editor’s tip: Give your tresses extra texture and definition with a spritz of TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray. This cult-fave product is also great for giving fine hair extra grip when styling in braids.
7. Half-up bun
A great way to wear your hair down while adding detail to the crown, it’s also a clever way to inject height to the top layers of your hair while still letting you flaunt your lengths. After all, you don’t have to cut your hair short just because it’s thin. Credit: @mikxx_ko
8. Side parted ponytail
Fine hair hasn’t stopped this supermodel from styling her tresses in show-stopping styles. Off the runway, Karlie Kloss loves simple and elegant styles and this side-parted low ponytail is just the style for someone looking for a fuss-free everyday work style.
