Best Cuts For Thin Hair

If you have thin hair, a pixie cut makes it appear thicker. Add light styling balm like Reverie’s Rake Styling Balm ($36) for added lock volume.

Pixie Cut

A pixie cut is a good choice for thin hair as it can create the illusion of thickness. Use a styling balm to add volume.

Medium Single-Length Haircuts

Medium single-length haircuts are quick to style and work well for thin hair. Choppy layers and curtain bangs can provide instant volume.

A-Line Bob

An A-line bob is ideal for thin hair and can suit heart-shaped or oblong faces. Opt for softly rounded ends and use flexible hairspray for a sleek style.

Inverted or Asymmetrical Bob

An inverted or asymmetrical bob can add depth and dimension to thin hair. Be cautious with styling this cut with bangs.

Add Copper Highlights

Copper highlights can make thin hair appear fuller. Ask your stylist to place the highlights at the base of your scalp for optimal effect.

Blunt Cut

A blunt cut can be a manageable choice for thin hair. Remember to use a heat protectant to maintain its best look.

Beachy Wave Style

The beachy wave style can add volume to thin strands, making it an excellent option for fine to medium-textured hair.

Bob with Side Parting and Blunt Cut Tips

A bob with a side parting and blunt cut tips can create the illusion of more volume for thin hair. Use lightweight hairspray to maintain the style.


The lob is a versatile compromise for women looking to shorten their hair. It works well with all face shapes and hair textures.

Layering and Curtain Bangs for Volume

Layering and curtain bangs can add volume to a lob. Alternatively, dying the lob a lighter shade can also enhance volume.

Carefree Choppy Lob

A carefree, choppy lob gives a chic and low-maintenance style. Add texture with a curling iron, or let it air dry for effortless waves.

Tousled Style for Added Dimension

A tousled style can give the appearance of thicker and fuller locks. It is less demanding and can work well for texture-heavy hair.

Layered Bob

A layered bob is low maintenance and can add volume and body to thin hair. Customize with bangs, styling balm, or wax for different finishes.

A-Line Bob with Face-Framing Layers

An A-line bob with face-framing layers is a more subdued textured choice. This style is ideal for those who want a chic and fashionable look.

Shoulder-Length Layered Bob

A shoulder-length layered bob can be elegant and sleek, straight or wavy. Pair it with a balayage color for added beauty.

Angled Layered Bob

An angled layered bob can make blonde hair appear full and healthy. Consider adding highlights and choose face-framing or side-parted layers.

Voluminous Pixie Cut

A voluminous pixie cut can add volume and movement to thin strands. Use light styling products like texturizing spray to enhance texture.
