Fine hair is characterized by minimal width of every hair, while sparse hair lacks density. As a rule, the major problem in both cases is no volume. So, short layered haircuts work for fine hair perfectly. Moreover, they are easy to maintain and style.
How To Style Fine Hair?
- Before you apply any styling products, dry your hair so that it’s approximately 80% dry.
- Opt for light styling solutions, providing volume. Don’t overload your hair with wax or heavy crèmes. Often it’s enough to add a little bit of mousse and rake your fingers through your hair for a trendy tousled finish.
A key to a successful short haircut is long bangs and/or layering. They add dimension and create an illusion of thick hair. Color highlights and ombre effect also belong to potent volume boosters, you may take advantage of.
The Best Haircuts For Short Fine Hair
- Bob. Regardless of length, a bob adds volume even to hair that is naturally fine. A graded bob additionally provides a very appealing texture.
- Pixie. This is one of the best choices for short fine hair, naturally straight, wavy or curly. Layering creates visual volume, whereas short length draws attention to your facial features. Platinum hair hues and long bangs soften your image and convey it a sensual look.
