The Hairstyles for Fine Hair You Should Know

1. Full Waves

Fine hair shouldn’t be confused with thin hair. Sometimes women with fine hair can also have lots of it—and we mean lots! You can have a lot of hair on your head, but the strands itself are super fine. Try adding texture to your hair by using some of the Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. Then, braid your hair into chunky plaits. Use a blowdryer to dry the hair, once dry undo your braids and separate to create a full and thick look to your hairstyle.

2.The Natural Shag

The shag hairstyle is not meant to look full with volume, which is why this style works for fine hair. But, you still don’t want your hair to look as if it has no life at all. Add a bit of volume to your roots with a lifting agent like TRESemmé Max The Volume Root Lifting Cream then blow-dry the roots. Add Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray to the length of your hair, then scrunch upward. Blow-dry or air-dry your hair for a natural-looking finish.

3. Side Bangs

Every girl wants to try out bangs these days and there’s absolutely no reason why a fine-haired girl can’t get in on this trend too. Many are afraid that if they cut a fringe, it may look too sparse. A great way to get around this is by trying side bangs. To start, pump up the volume a bit with TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner followed by TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo then dry hair. Create a deep side part and pull hair back into a low bun. Pull hair out at the front with your hands to create a messy effect which will also help give the fuller appearance to your bangs.

4. Voluminous Crown

There’s nothing wrong with faking it until you make it. And plus, who needs to know you teased your hair to add volume unless you tell them? (Your secret is safe with us). Whether you have short or long hair, create volume at the crown of your hair for a full appearance to your texture. To achieve, section hair at the crown of your head spray Nexxus Hydra-Light Root Lifting Mist at the base of the section then blow-dry to create an instant boost. Comb your hair back to blend in with the rest of your hair and done!
