Bangs for Fine Hair that Step Up Your Style

Just because you have thin hair doesn’t mean you need to stray away from bangs. Check out these top bangs for thin hair looks.

1. Split Bangs

Separate them down the middle.

A great way to adjust a set of full bangs so that it flatters finer hair is to style it by splitting it down the middle, a.k.a curtaining them. Your fringe will blend into the rest of your hair and create less of a separation between your bangs and the rest of your style, making the most of your gorgeous finer strands.

2. Sideswept and Teased

Push your bangs away to create some volume.

A quick and easy way to make your roots a little fuller while simultaneously creating the illusion of thicker hair is to tease the roots of your bangs. Sweep your bangs to the side and use a comb to tease just the roots of your strands to give them a touch of volume. Use a strong-hold hairspray to keep the teased roots in place for an all-day volume that doesn’t wear off. We love Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray.

3. Cropped Bangs

Wear them further back.

Ask your stylist to incorporate more of your hair into your bangs to create a bit of a thicker fringe. Add even more volume to your hair by combing Suave Professionals Firm Control Boosting Mousse through your roots when they’re still damp from your shower.

4. Piecey Thins Bangs

A piecey look requires less hair to begin with.

Get in on the piecey bangs trend. The best part about this style is that it doesn’t use up too much of your hair. You’ll have tons of leftover strands to work with. Maintain that piecey look with a light spritz of TRESemmé Volumizing Hair Thickening Spray all over the style.

5. Layered Bangs for Thin Hair

Use different lengths to create the illusion of more hair.

Layers are a great trick to use if you’re looking to add more body and movement to a style. Ask your stylist to cut subtle layers into your bangs. Even a thin layer of fringe will seem thicker when paired with the movement that comes with a layered style.

6. Feathered Thin Bangs

Easy and soft.

Blend feathered fringe into the front layers of your style. This creates a soft and simple look that flatters every hair type. The feathered look makes your fringe extremely wearable whether you wear your hair up or down.

7. Choppy Bangs

Pull a double statement.

Consider choosing a style that doesn’t require very much hair, like these choppy bangs. Pull double the statement by adding a strong dose of texture, and spray TRESemmé Dry Texture Finishing Spray and comb it through your hair.

8. Blunt Cut

The bolder, the better.

Let your bangs take the lead, and choose a bold, blunt haircut to show off your gorgeous feathery strands. Opting for a blunt bang will create a thicker look.

If you’re feeling extra fearless, we recommend the cropped bang style. This short length will have all the heads turning. Plus, the baby bangs are short enough that you don’t need to worry about them becoming piecey.
