#39: Shoulder-Skimming Wavy Bob
Large loose waves work wonderfully as a volume booster. When you use a flat iron or a curling iron to style the waves, do not touch the ends – let them stick out naturally. It’s a contemporary approach to perfectly imperfect lively locks that are now all the rage.
#40: V-Shaped Long Haircut
Whether to have your thin hair cut straight across or into a V-shape is a matter of preference. We like the latter option and consider it a more interesting solution, especially if you pair your cut with ombre.
#41: Shattered Collarbone Bob
If you lack thickness, you can add the desired body to your hairstyle with a shattered texture of a classy collarbone bob. Light layering closer to the edges and A-line side bangs create the special cute chaos that is entirely in the spirit of the trendiest messy hairstyles of the current season.
#42: Long Cascading Layers
An idea that thin hair is not meant for long haircuts is a mere misconception. Long delicate layers for the mane and fine grading for the bangs and front tresses, framing the face, bring in a fantastic feel of lightness and movement to make your hairstyle appear more voluminous, more alluring.
#43: Celebrity Bob
When you believe there’s nothing decent out there you can do with your thin hair, a good idea is to view hairstyles of celebrities with a similar hair type that you have. Sandra Bullock’s fine hair always looks smooth and sleek. This silky elongated bob is one of the best options to embrace for fine-haired ladies who want to look sophisticatedly classy.
#44: Stylish Cropped Choppy Cut
This cropped A-line haircut with chopped edges looks pretty darn cool. A light mess is on—trend, easy to style and effortless to maintain. Ask your stylist for bold choppy ends and long side-swept bangs – a super flattering option for active contemporary girls.

With more volume on top and leaner sides and back you will be able to create a perfect illusion of luxurious hair cut short. The blondish highlights add dimension and accentuate the rough texture of side-swept tresses… an awesome neatly nonchalant look!
Well, as we see, layering, highlights, choppy finish for the ends and destructured look work for volume at any length. Hope that sparks some cool ideas!
