Fine hair can be prone to looking a little flat, but with a few expert styling tips and tricks it doesn’t have to. There are plenty of different hairstyles for fine hair (it’s actually easier to style than you may think!) – the key is adding texture and layers to create extra volume,as well as using the right products. 

We’d recommend the Weightless Wonder range, featuring a shampoo, conditioner and styling crème – specially formulated by hair experts. This range is a must for anyone with fine hair as the products aim to smooth locks without weighing them down. It’s the ultimate tool in your hair styling kit! 

Hairstyles for short, fine hair

1. Asymmetrical bob

This trend-setting style adds volume to your hair and definition to your face. The ultimate face-framer, keep your asymmetrical bob ultra sleek by applying our Weightless Wonder Smoothing Crème to keep any flyaways at bay, without weighing your hair down.

2. Side-part bob

An easy trick to create instant lift is to switch your side part the other way, lifting the hair from the root for a fuller ‘do! If your hair starts to drop, simply swish it to the other side. This is a really easy short hairstyle for fine hair!

3. Bob with bangs

A blunt bob with bangs does require regular trims, but it is the perfect pairing to give the illusion of thicker hair. 

4. Angled bob

An angled bob looks great when it’s poker straight to really showcase those trendy sharp lines. Fine hair can be more prone to damage so spritz our Heat Defeat Protecting Spray before using any heated tools. 
 
Medium length hairstyles for fine hair

You may feel a little restricted when it comes to finding a hairstyle for shoulder length fine hair – but think again! A shorter length can help fine hair look fuller, plus there are plenty of ways to change up your look. 

5. Messy lob

A messy lob is perfect if you have layered, shoulder length fine hair. Ask your hairdresser to cut in choppy layers to instantly amplify the movement and volume in your hair.

6. Mid-length bangs 

You may be thinking bangs are a little scary, but trust us, fine hair can benefit and look fuller with an eyebrow grazing blunt fringe. If you take the leap with this bold style, leave the rest of your hair longer to give the illusion of more body. 

7. Bouncy blow-dry

A classic bouncy blowdry will always give you enviable volume. To ensure your style lasts, use our Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow Out Spray on towel dried hair before blowdrying.

8. Dutch braids

Braided hair will never go out of style; braids look great whatever your hair type. To create the look of extra thickness, once your locks are braided, tease small sections to bring out strands of hair for a beachy vibe with added texture.
