The Best Hairstyles for Fine Hair: Tips and Tricks for Volume and Texture
If you have fine and/or thin hair, you know how much of a struggle it can be. It can appear flat, and lifeless, and it doesn’t hold a style very well. It’s especially challenging if you don’t know how to work with it. Even though fine hair is a bit more demanding than thick and coarse hair, there are still ways to make it look fabulous. Here are our best tips and tricks for volume and texture.
Layered Hairstyles: Long Layers, Curtain Bangs, and Shaggy Cuts
The number one thing I would recommend to anyone with fine hair is getting a hairstyle with layers. Layered hairstyles are a great way to add volume and movement. Long layers, curtain bangs, and shaggy cuts are three great options that can create the illusion of thicker, fuller hair. It will also be much easier to style and curl your mane. But even if you don’t like that trendy shaggy hairstyle on yourself, a few layers in the front section of your hair can still help you get lots of additional volume.
Play with Color: Highlights and Balayage
Adding highlights or balayage to your hair can create the illusion of thicker, fuller hair. Balayage is a technique that involves painting highlights onto the hair, creating a natural, sun-kissed look. Highlights can also be used to add dimension and depth. It’s up to you which one you’ll choose. If you prefer a more natural look, then opt for a balayage a few shades lighter than your natural hair color. But if you want a more dramatic change, then highlights could be the right choice for you.
The Right Products: Lightweight Conditioner and Clarifying Shampoo
Using the right products can also help to add volume and texture to fine hair. Lightweight conditioner is a must-have for those with fine hair. It adds moisture to the hair without weighing it down, leaving it feeling soft and silky. Clarifying shampoo is another important product for those with fine hair. It removes buildup and excess oil from the scalp, leaving hair feeling clean and light.
Styling: Aim for Volume with Velcro Rollers and Texture Sprays
Styling techniques can make the biggest difference when it comes to adding volume and texture to fine hair. Velcro rollers are a great tool for adding lift and curl to the ends. Velcro rollers can be a bit tricky in the beginning, but once you have the technique down it will be quick and easy. You just need a medium-sized round brush, a few velcro rollers, and some hair pins to keep the rollers in place. Let the hair cool off while in the rollers, add a little bit of hairspray, and you’ll have a gorgeous voluminous blowout.
It’s also important to choose the right products. You don’t want anything that will weigh down your hair, or make it even more difficult for it to hold the curl. What you do want are products such as volume mousses, texture sprays, and volume powders that will add even more lift and body to your hairstyle. With a few key products and styling tools, you can achieve the perfect look for any occasion
