Hairstyles for fine curly hair that you’ll go crazy for

If you have naturally fine, curly hair, you might understand the pressure some curly girls feel, to have more volume and va-va-voom. Well, let us first say that your fine curly hair looks gorgeous as it is. In fact, there are plenty hairstyles that flatter your texture and look the best on your type of hair (but don’t tell anyone we said so, *wink, wink*).

With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite looks for naturally fine curly hair. Read on below for further info on any of the styles that catch your eye.


Hairstyles for thin curly hair that’ll transform you


Curly bob

Mix vintage and modern with a curly textured bob haircut. To give the look a more contemporary feel, aim for softer, more tousled curls rather than perfect gelled finger waves.

Editor’s tip: Try using a curl cream like the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie. The lightweight, moisturising formula provides just enough hold, while nourishing and moisturising your hair. It’s a game-changer, honestly!

Hunting for fun medium-length hairdos for fine curly hair? Enter: the curly lob. The lob (that’s “long bob”) bridges the gap between long, flowing hair and shorter bobbed looks, so you get the best of both. It’s super versatile, so feel free to wear it down, or tie it in a half-up messy ponytail for a more laid-back look.


Shaggy layers

The easiest way to enhance fine strands? Layers. Shaggy, face-framing cuts add body and movement to long wispy curls and the shaping around your face works really well, too. Keep your curls well-defined for a slick effect.

Sleeker styles can sometimes draw attention to fine hair, so a choppier approach can counteract this. This adorable curly crop is given extra body thanks to the short, choppy layers. We absolutely love how it looks on these 3A type curls.

Curls can seem to have a mind of their own, so we’ve got a helpful hair hack you may like to try. Experimenting with a centre parting can give your curls a more controlled, elegant effect and give a more defined look to the hair.

Did you know? An undercut can help put emphasis on the rest of the hair, and even create the illusion of fullness! This can work especially well with short hair, like this edgy pixie.

You might be concerned about trying a fringe with fine curly hair, in case it looks gappy but we’re here to tell you it’s not a bad thing. A piecey fringe pairs really well with a layered and teased shag cut and it’s peek-a-boo appearance adds the appearance of more volume.

Add some more volume to your shaggy cut with volumising haircare products. The Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner are fantastic options, because they won’t just add a bit of volume — they will also add a burst of moisture to your hair.
