15 ways to flatter your fine hair.

One of the trickiest parts about finding a hairstyle that works for you can often be learning how to cater to your unique needs. Some fine hair 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. 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. This collection also includes haircuts for men with fine hair in case you’re looking to recreate your look completely:

Work in some 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.

Don’t be scared to style your strands.

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.
