When you have fine hair, finding the right hairstyle that helps with creating a fuller and thicker finish is no easy feat, and dry shampoo is your best friend. The wrong haircut will make your fine hair look super fine and dry shampoo will help keep oiliness—which clumps your strands together—at bay. The right haircut, on the other hand, can help create the hair texture you want.
Fine hair, in particular, is a texture not without its own pros and cons. Try one of the haircuts for fine straight hair below that help conceal the look of fine, thin strands on hair that’s worn straight. Read on:
1. Fine Afro
If you plan to wear your curly hair straight and in an afro, try a tapered cut to help create a fuller afro. Pick hair out gently with a fine tooth comb to create the perfect shape and set with a shine hairspray like TRESemmé Smooth & Silky No Frizz Shine Spray.
2. Bleached Blonde Cut
Experimenting with bleach-blonde hair can cause your straight hair to look fine and thin. A light and airy short haircut will help create a fuller look to your style.
3. Blunt Cut
A blunt chop can help with making your hair look much thicker than it actually is. The key here is to make sure your hair doesn’t accumulate too much grease which won’t work in your favor. Try Dove Refresh+Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo to help in this area.
4. Bowl Cut
Looking for trendy haircuts for fine straight hair? Try this bowl cut. The stacked and layered cut at the back creates a fuller finish on this bowl cut.
5. Fluffy Texture
Not into pin straight hair all the time? Fake the look of fuller hair on a short cut by creating this bushy texture. After blow-drying your hair, backcomb the ends with a brush. Use a dry shampoo like Dove Refresh+Care Detox and Purify Dry Shampoo to soak excess oil to maintain the look.
6. Curled Bob
Update your straight hair for a new and easy look. Add a bump to the ends with a curling iron to give your hairstyle a thicker and fuller finish.

Natural hair types have fine textures too. Instead of wearing your hair straight all the time, use a short curly afro cut to create a fuller style. Define your curls with Suave Professionals Define & Shine Serum Gel and use an afro pick to fluff up your curls.

Take the attention away from your fine hair with bangs. If you’re worried about a fine-looking fringe, use the curtain bang style to spread the hair apart.
