Ever heard of the phrase “fake it till you make it”? Turns out, this age-old advice applies to your hair too! A mane that is made of fine and thin tresses can often fall flat at the end of the day. No matter how much hairspray you apply, it is unable to hold the shape because the individual strands are so light and wispy. As such, it makes sense to “fake” some volume into your mane by creating hairstyles that do just that. Here are some trendy hairdos to camouflage thin and fine hair.
- 01. Flipped-out bob
- 02. Side-braided low pony
- 03. Loose side braid
- 04. A wavy ponytail (bonus points for bangs!)
- 05. Messy loose low bun
01. Flipped-out bob
Bobs and lobs are so trendy right now and one way you can add volume to the cut is by flipping out the ends. Start off by using a lightweight hair cream like the TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling to add body and texture to your tresses. You can either go in with a blowdryer and round brush or just use your palms to crunch the ends into messy flips.
02. Side-braided low pony
Wearing fine hair pushed back for long hours is often what leads to flattening of roots. Wear your hair as a centre part and add one (or maybe two) lean braids on the sides. Keep the pony fairly loose to make your head seem puffy and full.
03. Loose side braid
Loose side braids that are casual and messy can make your mane look fuller and perfect. Use a volumising hair cream like the TIGI Bed Head Small Talk to add some texture to your hair. You can also pull out some face-framing tendrils for a chic look.
04. A wavy ponytail (bonus points for bangs!)
There are a couple of ways you can do your ponytail to make it look fuller. Some of them being a high pony with extensions or double-stacked ponytails to fake major volume. Our pick, though, is the simple wavy ponytail that you can in a matter of minutes, The trick is to add the waves AFTER you pull your hair in a pony. Just separate the pony into three sections, add waves with a curling iron and shake it out!
05. Messy loose low bun
Let’s establish the fact that women with fine and thin hair have an enviable advantage of wearing messy hairstyles and still look chic. It doesn’t get out of hand and make you look like you’ve been in a fight. Collect all your hair in a loose bun, backcomb the crown just a bit and leave out some face-framing tendrils for an effortless vibe. Easy-peasy!
