Four easy hairstyles to try! 

Styling thin, curly hair may seem challenging, but there are easy ways to feign that fuller, voluminous look without subjecting your hair to damaging heat styling tools. To pump up your hairstyles without the unwanted breakage, here are some curly hairstyles for thin hair to try, just in time for the new season:

4 Fresh and Fun Curly Hairstyles for Thin Hair

Curly Hairstyles For Thin Hair include layered bangs.

1. Add layered bangs.

Layered bangs are one of the best curly hairstyles for thin hair, as they give strands the natural body and movement they may be lacking. To get the look, ask your stylist for dramatic layered full bangs that sit right below the brow. This look helps your hair appear a lot thicker and fuller. While you can style your bangs straight, wearing them naturally curly gives your look a tough and edgy vibe. To help define your bangs, use TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel to get that bohemian-chic look.

2. Rock tousled tresses.

If you don’t want to subject your fine hair to any heat damage, trying a windswept wavy look can give your curls that trendy feel. To make your curly hair wavy, it’s important to start off with clean and detangled hair. Then, to get a beachy wave, you’ll want to use some rollers to help set your look. Smaller rollers tend to give a tighter curl look, so if you want more of a loose wave, you’ll want to pick up larger rollers to get that natural, beachy look. Let your rollers sit in your hair until they are completely dry, and then remove to reveal loose effortless waves. Finish with Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray to help set your style into place.

3. Try layered bobs.

Like layered bangs, adding layers to your cut can help give it some texture and volume. Beveled layers look great on thin and curly hair types, as it gives the hair some natural movement. To get this trendy style, ask your stylist to get wispy layers throughout the hair for that trademark gradiation. To take your look a step further, add some dramatic bangs below the brow to help enhance your look. 

Curly Hairstyles For Thin Hair include effortless updos.

4. Wear effortless updos.

If you want something more elegant, an easy and effortless updo can help pump up your hair in minutes. But even if your updo is fairly easy, you’ll still want to invest in a good styling product to help style your look into place. To get a chic and basic style, start by using Suave Professionals Firm Control Sculpting Gel on clean and damp hair. Then, to create your updo, use a brush and some bobby pins to pin your hair on top of your head. It doesn’t matter if your hair is perfectly pinned, as a disheveled updo always gives off a romantic and sexy vibe. To finish your look, lightly mist some hairspray onto the hair to provide some necessary hold.
