One of the trickiest parts about finding a hairstyle for men with fine hair that works for them can often be learning how to cater to the unique needs of that hair type. Some fine-haired men are ready to embrace the thinness of their strands, while others are looking for ways to add volume and camouflage what they see as hair care challenges. There’s no wrong answer here, as it’s really just about finding a style and cut that have you feeling your best.
Are you wondering if you’re one of the men out there with fine hair? If your hair lacks volume and you don’t need to use a lot of product to tame your tresses, there’s a good chance you have fine hair. Fine is based on the texture of your strands. It can be described as hair that is small in diameter. We’ve created a roundup of hairstyles for men with fine hair that are flattering and easy to create. There’s something for everyone here: from the guys who are ready to embrace their texture to the ones who are hoping to fake thicker strands. We’ve also included some haircuts for men with fine hair in case you’re looking to recreate your look completely:
1. Windblown Hairstyles for Men With Fine Hair
If you’re a ‘wash and go’ kind of guy, then you’ll be pleased to know that this style works with your haircare preferences. Leave the styling to the experts and let your texture do the talking with this easy and sexy windblown look.
2. Tousled Texture
Another way to work in texture is by asking your stylist for a haircut that supports it. What do we mean by that? By opting for a layered haircut you’ll find that tousled texture will be easy to achieve with virtually no effort. The layers naturally create some dimension for an easy styling routine that looks like it took some time.
3. Subtle Fade
Consider opting for a style that works with your natural hair texture rather than trying to turn it into something it isn’t. The subtle fade is a great and easy way to get in on a trend that is here to stay.
4. Intentional and On-Trend
If you’re finding that your fine hair has started to thin out, don’t panic just yet. Rather than fight your hair growth patterns, you can actually learn to embrace them. Keep your hair clean and healthy by washing and conditioning with Dove Men+Care Invigoration Ignite 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner. This product helps keep your routine quick and efficient while keeping your strands as healthy as possible at the same time.
5. An Elongating Style
Would you believe us if we told you that the shape of your hairstyle can affect the appearance of your bone structure? It’s true. By choosing a style like this one that’s styled up and away from your face, you elongate your face overall. Make sure to set the look with a spritz of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Extend Hold Level 4 for all-day hold.
6. Military Cut
No matter what your hair type or texture is, you can never go wrong with a military cut.
7. Wear it Straight
Grow your hair out into a medium length and wear your style sleek and straight.
8. The Mid-Level Man Bun
Grow your hair out even longer and tie your hair back into a man bun. Finer hair is easier to manage and throwing your hair up into a trendy man bun will be a breeze.
9. Heavily Styled
Many guys (and girls) are wary of using hair products on finer hair types. They’re worried about weighing their lightweight strands down with too much product and end up missing out on some opportune styling moments. We suggest starting with a small amount of Bed Head for Men by TIGI Power Play Gel and working your way up from there, depending on how much product your hair can handle.
10. Undone Curls
Anyone with curly hair will be wary of removing hair products from their routine… and with good reason too. Give it a shot for an undone look on days when you want a style that’s a bit more low-maintenance.
11. Deepen Your Part
If you’re in the ‘searching for more volume’ camp, then you’ll want to try this easy trick. By styling your hair with a side part, you’ll add a quick and easy amount of volume at your roots for the appearance of thicker strands.
12. Completely Cropped
Another look that works on every hair type and texture is a completely cropped style.
This product-free style is another one for all the low-maintenance guys out there. Run your fingers through your hair to make good use of your natural oils for a tousled brushed-through look.
14. Balanced Beard
Balance out your fine hair with a thick and full beard.
15. Trimmed Beard
Or, if you’re not quite ready for a full-bearded look, then consider a trimmed option.
16. Short Sides
To create the appearance of thicker hair, keep the hair on the sides of your head short. To style this look, work AXE Messy Look: Matte Gel into the hair on the top of your head to create more volume.
17. Embrace the Texture
Let’s face it, you may not want to spend a lot of time styling your hair to change the appearance of its texture. Instead of working against your hair, work with it! Embrace your naturally fine hair and opt for a shorter style. This makes your fine texture not as noticeable, plus it’ll be easy to maintain.
18. Distinct Part
Want to create the illusion of more voluminous hair? Create a distinct part and brush your hair over to one side. To ensure your distinct part stays in place, lock everything in place with Suave Extreme Hold Unscented Aerosol Hairspray.
19. Swoop Style
Does your hair have a little length to it? Channel your inner heartthrob singer, and try swoop style. To achieve this style, brush the front section of your hair to one side while blow-drying it.
20. Messy Strands
Creating a messy hairstyle will lift you strand, which will make them appear less limp. Do this by mixing a small amount of AXE Messy Look: Flexible Paste in your hands, and then working it through your strands to add more texture.
21. Short Length
Work with the natural texture of your hair by maintaining a short style. This cut won’t emphasize your fine strands and it requires little to no product to maintain, which is great of you’re always on the go.
22. Quiff Style
If your goal is to achieve voluminous strands, then you should try a quiff hairstyle! This is a taller style, which will naturally draw your eye upwards. To achieve this look, use Bed Head For Men by TIGI Pure Texture Molding Paste. Work a small amount of the paste in your hands and then apply throughout towel-dried hair.
Hair products can be intimidating, we get it. But it’d important to embrace them when you want to achieve voluminous hair. Work a gel or paste into your hair in an upward motion to create more height in your style.
24. Slicked Back Strands
Keep the sides of your hair shorter to create the illusion that your hair is thicker. Use a gel to slick the longer section of hair back to create a smooth style with more volume at the root.
25. Tousled Waves
There’s nothing wrong with embracing your natural waves. Create fuller looking strands by using Suave Men Thick + Full 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner. This 2-in-1 product uses wheat protein to boost your strands!
