Celebrities with Fine Hair

Straight and fine hair: best haircuts and hairstyles

  1. Jaime King

Short bobs are very versatile cuts for thin hair. No matter your texture, you can switch to shorter locks even if you have super fine hair. By cutting hair to your chin and going shorter towards the nape of the neck, you get a more full-bodied effect.

2. Mia Wasikowska

If you have been blessed with straight fine hair, consider your mane to be a blank canvas. Use highlights to your advantage to create dimension in short bob hairstyles. Mia’s chunky blonde and brown pieces complete a chic hairstyle with depth and sufficient volume.

3. Yolanda Hadid

Lob for Fine Hair: Bob hairstyles for fine hair don’t have to be super short. This one, for example, is just above the shoulders and looks flirty and feminine with soft waves in a golden blonde tone.

4. Cate Blunchett

Bob Cut with Blunt Ends: Short hairstyles for fine hair can make you look very polished and put together, especially with locks that are cut at one length. Because your hair is on the thinner side, blunt ends will provide just the right amount of density and structure for a fairly full, not poofy look.

How to Style Thin Hair

Simple tricks for styling thin hair from ladies who actually have thin hair.

Unfortunately, lifeless strands that have a tendency to sit flat often come with the territory of having thin, fine hair. And although your hair might not be as luscious or as full as you would like, that doesn’t mean you can’t fake a thicker style with a few handy tips and tricks. But how can you make thin hair look thicker? What are the best haircuts for thin hair? And what are the best hairstyles for thin hair? Below we’ve collected thin hair how-to styling videos. We’ll update it this collection periodically.

How To Curl Fine Hair and Make it Stay

Tip: How-to-have-healthy-heat-styled-hair rules:

  1. Invest in your flat or/and curling iron. Make sure to purchase one that says “ceramic plates,” which will ensure that the heat is evenly distributed.
  2. A heat protector is a must! 
  3. Make sure the temperature is right for your hair. You’ll need an iron with variable heat settings in order to control it (so look for that feature at time of purchase). This is a big one. My hair should only be ironed at a low setting, below 200 degrees, as it is very fine. Start at a lower level and increase as needed.

If your hair is fine, fragile or color treated, use a low heat setting — below 200 degrees — to avoid burning or damaging your hair. As you curl your hair, notice how it responds to the heat and increase the temperature accordingly. Never go above 300 degrees.

I wouldn’t call Katy’s hair thin or fine but in this video she shows a very good technic on how to have beachy waves and lift hair at the roots at the same time. She uses a flat iron to achieve it.

Best Haircuts for Fine or Thin Hair

How to cut fine hair for volume?

Let’s be clear on one thing: Being born with super-thick, flowing, supermodel-esque hair may afford you more options, but there’s no reason fine-haired ladies need to throw in the towel. Much of beauty is about optical illusions. Just like the right lipstick can make your lips look fuller and the right eyeliner can make your peepers pop, the right haircut can transform thin or fine hair into a (seemingly) thick, voluminous mane.

Using the advice of a few trusted stylists, we put together this roundup of the three best haircuts for thin hair—with lots of photos to prove it. These simple, yet strategic haircuts and hairstyles will trick onlookers into believing you have more hair than you know what to do with.

1. Blunt Cut Bob

Long locks can weigh down any look, so keep fine hair shoulder length or above. The trick for pulling off a shoulder-length style is making it a blunt cut. Blunt lines make your hair appear thicker.

Tip: To maintain and amplify fullness, avoid overtexturizing hair with lots of layers.

Cate Blanchett‘s blunt bob looks the epitome of chic, especially with her low side-parting and impossibly shiny blonde. Cate always keeps her naturally fine hair shoulder length or above.

Sleek and razor sharp, there’s a simple elegance to Rosamund Pike‘s immaculate bob.

Take inspiration from another of Charlize Theron‘s short hairstyles. This bob, cut level with her chin and styled with a side parting, perfectly frames her face.

Another actress to embrace the blunt cut bob is Saoirse Ronan, whose laser-cut style was a lesson in precise hairstyling. Wear your hair super sleek with a centre-parting to follow her example.

Here’s a style thick-haired women have a harder time pulling off: short hair tucked behind the ears. Thicker hair tends to stick out more and doesn’t stay behind the ears as well, but thinner hair sits smoother.

Loosely slicking your hair back is a perfect hair style for fine hair. Yolanda Hadid is a big fan of slicking her fine hair back for special occasions.

The wavy bob has become the hottest hairstyle obsession for women of all hair types, but it’s especially popular for those with thinner hair because it’s short enough to never fall flat, and the wavy texture gives the illusion of thickness. For added dimension, add highlights. 

2. Choppy Pixie 

Shorter hair is stronger than longer strands, so even very fine hair can benefit from a super-short cropped cut. Pixie cuts can actually make your thin hair appear thicker than it really is.

To feminize a boyish pixie cut, like Robin Wright‘s, blow-dry bangs to the side using a small round brush.

Want to look like Charlize Theron? (Don’t we all?) The trick to keeping hair like hers modern and youthful is using products that add toughness and texture. That means picking lightweight waxes or pomades and tossing anything you associate with sleekness, like gel or frizz fighters.

Michelle Williams has rocked a pixie cut since 2007, and has been sporting the short look ever since. It almost seems unnatural to imagine Williams without her Mia Farrow-esque pixie, but it looks like she’s in the stages of growing it out now. Michelle Williams has a bob now, proving that the in between growout period doesn’t have to be completely painful.

3. Shoulder Length Hair

Another trick to try if your hair is on the longer side is the deep side part. With a deep side part, you’re essentially lumping all your hair together on one side, creating the illusion of volume. You also create lift at the roots.

Amber Valletta has beautiful hair. It is naturally fine and wavy. The deep side part works perfectly for her.

Paris Hilton has fine and straight hair. The side part hair style works perfectly for her. She usually wears hair extensions but you can spot her sometimes without them.
