Styling thin hair can be quite a chore. It takes the perfect blend of the right haircut, products, and patience to make your hair look thicker and more vibrant.
Working with a skilled stylist to get the right hairstyle for your texture and face shape is the first step to adding volume to your locks. Here are some of the best everyday hairstyles for thin hair.
1. Deep Side Parts
If you want to rock a middle part when you have thin hair, your best bet is to invest in a high-quality hairpiece from EvaWigs. Otherwise, you should avoid the middle part as it tends to conform closely to the shape of your skull.
Instead, style your hair in a deep side part. Forcing the hair to flip in the opposite direction adds tremendous volume and the illusion of thickness. This style is also beautiful if you have a high forehead and want to detract attention from it.
Experiment with this look and find the depth and side that works for you. Start by parting your hair an inch from the middle, then add more until you find the perfect look. You may need to use a blow dryer and product to achieve the part you want.
2. Long Textured Bob
The long bob, also known as a lob, is a great look for people who have thin hair but like some length. As you get past the shoulders with thin hair, it can start to look stringy. The lob is a safe compromise and works well with various textures.
Work with a stylist to add layers and dimension so that you can use waves and feathering for increased volume. Consider a stacked bob for an edgy-modern look you’ll love. Lobs are versatile and work well with highlights and the balayage trend that’s been so popular in recent years. It’s also a simple, low-maintenance hairstyle that will make mornings easy.
3. Messy Pixie Cut
If you’re sick of fighting with your hair, opt for a messy pixie cut. Have your stylist add texture and varying lengths so that you can change your look for different events. Whether you choose to smooth it down for an ultra-modern look or amp it up with a faux-hawk, this versatile cut is perfect for thin hair.
While many women make the mistake of chopping off their locks for something that’s lower maintenance, pixie cuts take time and product to perfect. Of course, this cut is also ideal for under a high-quality wig when you want to shake things up.
4. Piecey Straight Bangs
Straight bangs are making a comeback, and they’re becoming more thin hair friendly. Rather than a blunt cut, the new age straight bang has a more piecey texture that looks great with all hairstyles. Piecey bangs are also more natural to work with than straight bangs, as the messy, wind-tossed look comes naturally.
Work with a stylist to find the cut that works with your face shape. Having some longer pieces to frame your face can help build added volume if you opt for a lengthier hairstyle.
5. Classic Long Shag Cut
If you want long hair but worry about how it will look, take inspiration from vintage hairstyles. While you might not want the iconic Farrah Fawcett flip, that cut works as a foundation for adding volume in a longer style.
While layers are often used to thin out thicker hair, they can also work to add volume to thinner locks. Opt for a classic, long shag cut that uses messy layers and texture to add volume. Add layers that frame the face for more dimension. Many of the retro hairstyles are making a comeback in 2020; get ahead of the curve and find a style you love.
Selecting the right hairstyle to make your locks look thick and vivacious shouldn’t be a chore. Talk to your stylist and work together to find your next great hairstyle.
