Prev1 of 70Next

Medium length is the most universal one, especially when it comes to thin hair, and you can make lots of cool hairstyles even if you wish your hair was much thicker. These are rather versatile, including loose styles on the basis of bob haircut and various updos with braiding, twists or ponytails. If you don’t know how to style your fine hair, opt for a bob cut that looks great straight with teasing at the roots or curly. Enhanced texture and a messy touch will save you when you are constantly on the go. Here are some of the cutest visualized ideas to embrace.

Medium Length Hairstyles for Thin Hair

#1: Layering and a Headband Twist

This awesome serene look is made on the basis of a layered collarbone bob. Something as simple as a headband twist can perform both a decorative and a practical function, keeping your long bangs off the forehead and serving the zest of this gorgeous eye-catching style for straight thin hair.

#2: Naughty Pony With Bouffant And Braiding

A bouffant works great for medium hairstyles for fine hair, adding volume and making your style more sophisticated. Highlighted top tresses, braided on one side, enhance a fancy feel of your hairstyle, while you can see yourself how simple it is. Let your pony occupy an intermediate position: neither too high, nor too low, as most girls would do these days.

#3: Messy Backswept Curls

Curls are a win-win option for thin hair. The fun ringlets make your mane appear thicker and nonchalantly natural, especially when they are silky yet messed up and swept back as if by the wind. Very subtle highlights are a big plus for added dimension, even if they are not so evident at first sight.

#4: Sexy Texturized Celebrity Bob

Light teasing at the roots on the crown is another secrete of how to make your thin hair more appealing. Asymmetry for the front tresses and the whole shattered texture make everyone believe that your hair is flawlessly gorgeous. You may even tuck some strands behind your ear on one side for an extra sexy touch.

#5: Disconnected Messy Bob

The effortless scrunch-and-go style is absolutely adorable. Besides, it’s on-trend and easy to style. Long side-swept bangs and a side parting is exactly what is needed for a round or square face. I love this look and often use it in casual wear, do you?

#11: Shoulder Length Curls

Thin hair gets a big boost of body from a large-barreled curling iron. While hot rollers can make thin hair too “tight” and ringlet-like, a large curling iron will provide volume without going over the edge.

#12: Medium Length Hairstyles for Thin Hair

If your hair is very fine, you will benefit from a medium length cut. Go for a “v” angle at the ends instead of having it cut straight across to add both length and body. Use a curling iron to style loose curls away from the face for some additional texture.

#13: Beautiful Bun for Thinner Hair

The messy look continues to be trendy, and fine hair is ideal for such a style. Braid hair loosely toward the center of the head and pull the rest of the locks back into a casual knot. Be sure to leave some strands flowing free to both frame the face and prevent this style from looking too rigid.

#14: Long, Loose Curls

When you’re considering a new medium length hairstyle, look no further than the curling iron you already own. The trick to make fine thin hair look bouncier is to strategically place curls all over the head instead of just in one spot or direction. Gentle ringlets should cascade freely for a beautiful final style.

#15: Medium Hair with a Side Part

Trendy, tousled hair is all the rage right now, but for those with thinner hair, you will need to incorporate in a side part. Combing your hair in one direction will instantly add a boost of body that will really serve as a pick-me-up solution on those flat hair days. If you have medium length hair with bangs, brush the hair above the bangs straight back for that extra volume.

#16: Shoulder Length Hairstyle for Thin Hair

Sometimes cute hair doesn’t have to come through a cut – instead, think about creative ways to style your locks. For finer hair, a braided pompadour is always lovely. Get inspired by the French braids of childhood and braid only the top section of your hair, adding a kick of volume while the rest flows free.

#17: Chin-Length Hair With Layers

Layered hair works well on any hair type, but it is especially lovely on thin hair, as it adds texture and thickness where needed. Cutting your hair to a chin from a shoulder-length style and adding in a lot of wispy layers brings a sexy style that’s easy to maintain and pleasure to wear.

#20: Styled Medium Haircuts

Once your hair is cut to a medium length, have some fun with it! You don’t have to sport super long hair to take advantage of the latest hairstyle trends. Instead, tease the central section of your hair and add a small French braid to the sides to keep things big and beautiful. This is just one of many ideas when it comes to trying a funky style on thinner straight hair.

#21: Medium Hair with Highlights

Since thin hair tends to be flat and straight, add some dimension with gorgeous highlights. You can go blonder or browner, depending upon your natural hair color. Don’t forget to include some face framing layers, as well as lighter strands up top to lighten up your look.

#22: Accentuate With Accessories

Thin hair has a benefit of being rather manageable in updo hairstyles. Keeping it in place, however, can be a different story. When you have a medium haircut, work in some hair accessories like this gold leaf headband to keep flyaways in place. Great variant for a prom, by the way!

#23: High Knot Ponytail

Ponytails are the cure for any hair woe, and very fine hair is no exception. To add an extra boost of height, wrap a medium strand of hair around the elastic and secure with a bobby pin. This will keep the ponytail high and dramatic.

#24: Blunt Medium Length Haircuts for Thin Hair

Sometimes a blunt cut is best for thin-haired girls. If you tend to feel prettiest with bangs, have them trimmed to just below the eyebrow length and pair them with medium length hair cut straight across to match. Straight, lovely and bright, wow!

#25: Angled Hair for Thin Locks

If your hair is very thin, you can give it the illusion of improved thickness by having it cut all at an angle. Choose short, chin-length strands for one side while allowing the other half to reach slightly past the shoulders. Bangs, too, can be angled to give additional dimension and style.

#26: Highlighted Mid-Length Hairstyle

For beautiful warm weather hair, thinner strands will often be pulled up and away from the face.
