10 Gorgeous Hairstyles For Women With Thin Hair
Creating a voluminous ponytail is an easy way to style fine hair so that it appears thicker. First, make sure your hair is dry and that it's been a day or two since it was washed. Skip your usual shampoo and conditioner routine, and use a dry shampoo (we like Batiste Dry Shampoo) to remove grease and add much-needed texture. (Just be careful not to make these dry shampoo mistakes.)
Then, hold up the top layer of your hair (which falls in line with your eyebrows) and use a fine-tooth comb to tease it. The process of teasing your hair is basically the exact opposite of how you'd usually brush it: Hold the comb beneath your hair and brush it toward your scalp, in order to make volumizing knots.
Once the top of your head is nicely teased, pull your hair back into a high ponytail. With your elastic tightly secured, tug thick sections of hair a centimeter out of its grip. The result will be a full ponytail that creates the illusion of thick hair. To finish, spray a hair spray like Aveda Control Force all over your up-do to secure it into place.
Fishtail braids are a totally achievable look if you have medium-to-long fine hair, and they'll do you some major favors in terms of visual thickness. To start, spritz your hair with a texturizing spray (one of our favorites is ) for extra volume and effortless, tousled waves.
Next, have a friend or stylist create the braid, or watch a tutorial to get the look all by yourself. We recommend braiding your hair down your shoulder, instead of letting it fall straight down your back.
Once the braid is complete and tied with an elastic, it's time to add volume. Using two hands, take each section of the braid and pinch it outward on both sides. Don't worry about individual strands coming loose; by expanding and deconstructing the fishtail, you can give your hair the appearance of instant fullness. (Over 40?

Your part is one of the fastest giveaways to the true thinness of your hair, so an obvious solution is to cover it up! First, make sure to always use a lightweight shampoo like , which will give you everyday body and bounce.
When your hair is dry, take the uppermost layer in the middle (the hair that falls between the arches of your eyebrows), hold it up, and lightly tease it. Then pull this layer back so it covers your part, securing with bobby pins. You definitely don't want it to be slicked back, but rather, wide and full of volume.
For the best results, create bombshell curls in your remaining hair using a large styling wand (we love the Remington Salon Collection Ceramic Curling Wand).
For women with fine hair, the wavy lob has two big benefits: It's short enough that it'll never get weighed down, and the beachy texture provides the appearance of thickness.
To start, use a texturizing spray throughout your hair to add lasting density, volume, and texture. Depending on your hair's natural curl, either use your hands to scrunch your hair while it's wet, or create beachy waves with a curling wand when it's dry. Gently use your fingers to mess up the curls, and finish with a spray like for soft hold. (If you're noticing your body hair start to thin, here are 7 things that could be going on.)
You don't need Zooey Deschanel's thick locks to rock front bangs. The trick is to avoid wide-set, heavy ones with a blunt edge, which will leave you with very little remaining hair. Instead, opt for wispy, choppy bangs. Having uneven strands gives you the option to part them to one side or in the center. But on a daily basis, it's best to pull your hair back, tousle your bangs with your fingers, then spritz them with a texturizing spray such as .
"The best haircuts for women with thinning hair are ones with weight lines. For example, a graduated bob would add fullness and movement to lifeless hair," says Caschetta. Layers can add volume and height, but will remove too much weight if overdone, she adds. "Stick to interior layering just in the crown area!"
Play up a standard bob with an angled cut: This short hairstyle not only provides added volume in the back, it's also a total breeze to maintain. Simply use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner like the TRESemmé Beauty Regimen Kit when you shower, then dry and straighten for chic results.
Try wispy front layers if you want to keep your hair long—to get them, have your hairstylist cut front layers that start from the bottom of your chin and cascade down. These layers will nicely frame your face, add texture, and can be styled for greater volume. Just keep in mind that the back of your hair should be cut in a straight line, as thin back layers tend to get scraggly.
