Not to be confused with thinning hair, fine-haired beings can choose from a variety of hairstyles that will add life to a flat cut. Choose curls and waves to add bounce and movement, or a blunt bob hairstyle that you can bring depth and texture to with the right products and clever drying techniques.

There are plenty of celebrities who know some great tricks when it comes to creating winning hairstyles for fine hair; keep reading for the expert guide to pulling them off.

Hairstyles for fine long hair

As fine hair holds its style well, longer lengths are your best option when it comes to versatile styling options. ‘The key thing to remember with long hair is that it needs to look healthy,’ says Sam Burnett, KMS Style Council member and founder of Hare and Bone. ‘There is no point in having long unhealthy hair as the condition will always determine the length. If you
have fine hair, keep layers longer as over layering will only make the hair appear thinner and sparser.’

Straight, wavy or curly, the world is your oyster here – this is the length most fine-haired celebs opt for when choosing a style that’ll work on and off the red carpet.

Hairstyles for fine medium length hair

Safe to say that blunt, mid-length styles are all the rage right now. ‘Medium length hair looks great when it’s maintained well; think fuller, blunt styles with no layering,’ advises Sam. ‘If an individuals’ hair is prone to frizz then it’s best to keep the hair on the longer side of medium. The longer and heavier the hair, the more controlled it will be.’

Hairstyles for fine short hair

The key to making finer, short hair appear fuller with a cropped style is to add layering on top to create the illusion of volume and height, while sweeping fringes with multi-toned colouring add depth to your style while helping it appear fuller.

Layering is really your friend here. ‘Face shape isn’t key for this style but by creating layering, you ultimately affect the shape,’ says Sam. ‘For example round faces should opt for square layers and vice versa for square face shapes.’
