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

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

TRESemmé Ultimate Shine Hold Hairspray

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 Hairsprayonce 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

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a #blogger to rock this look. The blogger bun gets its name thanks to the rise in Instagram It-girls rocking this effortless, undone style on their feeds.

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

TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray

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

The hun (AKA the half-up bun) is another look that’s really taken off this year thanks not only to bloggers, but also A-list hun lovers like Hilary Duff and Ariana Grande.

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
