Make Thin Hair Look Amazing


Make Thin Hair Look Amazing

Last Updated:

It’s no secret that styling thin or fine hair can be a challenge. Today’s top trending styles are all about natural volume and texture, but thin locks tend to fall flat, limp or lifeless. The good news is that the right haircuts can completely transform thin hair… adding volume and making thin strands look instantly thicker!

Whether you prefer short, mid-length or long hair, there are fashionable and flattering options you’re sure to love.

Read on to discover the best hairstyles for thin hair:

 

  • - BEST SHORT STYLE: Tousled Pixie

It's common sense...less hair equals a lighter style and - when it's done right - a fuller finish. For those brave enough to bare it all, the Pixie is a superb way to achieve the voluminous lift of your dreams! 

The true beauty here lies in its customizability...whether you prefer a short, spiked-out, edgy look or a slightly longer, softer style, the uber-versatile Pixie provides all the texture and personality you'll need - and then some. Wear it straight, wavy, or curly...high and tight or in face-framing layers...as silky-smooth or as totally textured as you'd like! 

Best Short Styles - Tousled Pixie

 

STEP #1: Set the Foundation

Great styles start with a great cut, of course - but properly cleansed and well conditioned hair is of equal importance. Especially for those of us whose hair is on the thinner side, it's vital to use a lightweight, salon-quality formula that's not too oily, as regular shampoos and conditioners can weigh down the hair and make it look flat and limp.

Look for a good Shampoo and Conditioner that are made for fine and thinning hair to gently and weightlessly cleanse and condition, for a happier scalp that's primed for maximum strand retention and voluminous locks that won't fall flat throughout the day. 



STEP #2: Build your Style

The beauty of the Tousled Pixie is its VERSATILITY! You can style it curly or straight, make it edgy or more sedate...it's all up to you. The difference lies in the technique!

For a modern, piecey vibe, tousle strands with your fingers while you blow-dry on low/medium heat. Once your hair is almost dry, spritz a thickening agent such as BOLDIFY Hair Thickening Spray lightly and evenly throughout, and then finish drying for a touchably textured, voluminous finish that lasts all day!

For a softer, more classic look, start by applying a dime-sized amount of leave-in conditioner to towel-dried hair, then blow-dry with a small round brush for shiny strands, optimal softness, and maximum volume.

 

STEP #3: Make it Last

Creating a style is one thing, but keeping it going is another! Sustaining your style throughout the day with thin hair requires flexible support and top-notch oil control. 

The best product for maintaining volume in short hair is Volumizing Powder, but make sure you buy one designed especially for fine and thinning hair.

Lasting volume, touchable texture, all-day support, and easy oil control are only a few pumps away! Just a single spray of powder into your palm worked gently throughout the root area will ensure your style looks every bit as good at 9 pm as it did at 9 am.



  • BEST SHOULDER-LENGTH STYLE: Blunt Bob

Chic and classic, the blunt shoulder-grazing bob is a perfect solution for those who don’t want long hair– but don’t want a short pixie cut either.

Highly personalizable, bobbed cuts can be sheared and styled in countless ways. For thinner locks, a blunt cut helps hair look thicker and healthier and maintains maximum fullness. As a short-but-not-too-short option, weight doesn't tend to be an issue here. This means you can keep all the fullness of each strand rather than having to layer the lengths to lighten it up.

Whether you add bangs to minimize the appearance of thinning around your temples or go fringe-free for a fuller frontline...whether you keep it straight and level for a classic feel or angle it forward for a more modern vibe, a bob might just be the bold choice you're looking for!

Best Short Styles - Blunt Bob


STEP #1: Set the Foundation

Great styles start with a great cut, of course - but properly cleansed, well-conditioned hair is key to making your hairstyle look amazing. Since thin hair tends to get greasy faster, it's vital to use a lightweight, salon-quality formula for strands that are voluminous, not too oily, and perfectly pliable for a fabulously fuller finish every time.

BOLDIFY Hair Shampoo and Conditioner are designed to gently cleanse and deeply - yet weightlessly - nourish fine hair for a happier scalp that's primed for optimal hair growth and healthy-looking locks that are easy to style and manage.


STEP #2: Build your Style

Often revered for its perfect balance of volume and length, the Blunt Bob has a bit of length - allowing you to style your hair in any way you choose - but not so much as to weigh your style down. The blunt design line allows for the fullest finish possible. Wear your bob curly, straight, piecey, or smooth...it's up to you!

For a voluminously modern, piecey look, tousle strands with your fingers while you blow-dry on medium airflow.

Pro Tip: Flip your head upside down while blow drying! Once hair is barely damp, gently run a wide-toothed comb through locks before applying
Hair Thickening Spray lightly and evenly throughout. Tousle hair into place with your hands as you complete the drying process.

For a silky-smooth finish, start by applying a dime-sized amount of Hair Thickening Serum to clean, towel-dried hair. Blow dry with a medium-sized round brush - paying close attention to getting lift at the roots - for optimal fullness and maximum volume!

 

STEP #3: Make it Last

Tired of your blowouts falling flat by midday? The secret to long-lasting volume and texture is to use the right product to absorb oil, support the roots and maintain body. BOLDIFY Dry Texture Spray provides flexible volume, touchable texture, and optimal oil control - all without the stickiness, stiffness, or matting often associated with other texturizers.

Apply a few spritzes all over your head to enhance volume and texture, or use it as a dry shampoo alternative to refresh thin hair between washes!


  • BEST MID-LENGTH STYLE: Textured Lob

Looking for longer locks with life and lift similar to a shorter style? A choppy lob could very well be the cut for you!

This longer version of a bob (longer bob...lob...get it?) harnesses the weight-reduction and movement-making benefits of chopping the ends - allowing you to hang onto more length without sacrificing a full, lively finish.

While choppy cuts can work for all hair types and textures, those with straight strands may notice the biggest difference in volume and finish. For maximum volume, opt for a slightly disheveled finish that says "airy" rather than "sleek".

 

Best Short Styles - Textured Lob


STEP #1: Set the Foundation

Thicker, healthier looking hair starts with a great haircut… AND a well-designed haircare routine! Hair Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner work to plump and volumize thin hair for a weightless, bodiful finish. Choose products infused with Biotin to combat breakage and strengthen delicate strands.


STEP #2: Build your Style

The choppy lob is often hailed as the perfect cut for those who love the versatility and movement of longer locks, without the weight and lifelessness other styles of a similar length can produce. It's easy to make this cut your own. Style your lob in a smooth, voluminous finish or opt for lively, beachy curls. The possibilities are endless, and it's all up to you!

For a straight - yet voluminous - look, tousle strands with your fingers while you blow-dry with medium airflow.

Pro Tip: Flip your head upside down while blow drying! Once hair is barely damp, gently run a wide-toothed comb through locks before applying
Hair Thickening Spray lightly and evenly throughout. Tousle hair into place with your hands as you complete the drying process for a full finish, or finish drying with a medium-large round brush for added lift and maximum volume.

For carefree beachy curls, start by applying a nickel-sized amount of
 Hair Thickening Serum to clean, towel-dried hair. Blow dry with a medium-large round brush - paying close attention to getting lift at the roots. Then use a 1" or 1.25" curling iron on small sections (moving from the nape of your neck to the top of your head, and always curling away from your face) to create soft curls.

Pro Tip: Starting the curl about an inch from the scalp and leaving the last inch or so of the ends out of the iron is a great way to create relaxed, flowy curls - and reduce damage and split ends! Allow strands to cool before using your fingers to tousle into place.

 

STEP #3: Make it Last

Does your carefully-styled hair lose its volume after a sweaty gym sesh or a long day at work? Don’t stress! A few all-over sprizes of BOLDIFY Dry Texture Spray can help your finished curls stay in place for longer. 

If your hair needs a lift in between styling, spray directly at the root area to add lift and support where you need it most! Unlike typical dry shampoos, you don’t have to worry about matting or powdery residue.

 

  • BEST LONG STYLE: Long Layers with Face-Framing Fringe

The romance of long locks isn't lost on those of us with thinner hair - and here at BOLDIFY, we know that length doesn't have to equal limp and lifeless hair! An expert cut and intentional styling routine can help you maintain the length you love without losing the body you want.

With a cut known as the "fringe and frame", bangs (called “fringe” by pro stylists) create a perceived lift at the scalp, while ever-so-light face-framing layers and some serious texture at the end of longer strands help to lighten up a traditionally "heavier" long hairstyle, breathing life into locks for a full and flowy finish.

While this style can help maximize volume for all hair types and textures, the longest lengths generally work best for hair that's naturally wavy or curly, as that extra "oomph" helps to balance the added weight.

 

Best Short Styles - Long Layers With Face-Framing Fringe


STEP #1: Set the Foundation

Long, thin hair requires special care. Regular cleansing is essential for keeping long locks healthy and fluffy, and a lightweight conditioner provides important nutrients and hydration to prevent breakage.

BOLDIFY Hair Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner are a perfect choice for this hair type, as they weightlessly nourish and moisturize strands while boosting natural volume. Seal hair follicles by applying Hair Thickening Serum to damp hair after every wash to fortify your strands and enhance thickness.


STEP #2: Section and Support

Long, flowing layers with fringe let you maintain all the length you want - without the weight and lifelessness you don't. The styling possibilities are truly endless...choose a smooth, glossy finish or opt for cascading curls. It's all up to you! 

Regardless of how you choose to style it, there's one must-have for thinner hair of this length...lift and support at the roots. Getting it has never been easier with BOLDIFY Root Boosting Spray!

Once you've combed through freshly-washed, towel-dried hair, simply section and spray on roots from 4-6 inches away. Release the sectioning and gently rub into strands with your fingertips. Repeat until you've applied to all sections, then continue styling with confidence in the incredible all-day lift and support our Root Boost offers!


STEP #3: Build your Style

For a straight - yet voluminous - look, tousle strands with your fingers while you blow-dry with medium airflow. (Pro Tip: Flip your head upside down for this part!) 

Once hair is barely damp, gently run a wide-toothed comb through locks before applying Thickening Spray lightly and evenly throughout. Tousle hair into place with your hands as you complete the drying process for a full finish, or complete drying with a large round brush for added lift and maximum volume.

For tousled beach waves, start by applying a quarter-sized amount of BOLDIFY Hair Thickening Serum to clean, towel-dried hair. Blow dry with a large round brush, lifting the hair at the roots. Then use a 1" or 1.25" curling iron on small sections (moving from the nape of your neck to the top of your head, and always curling away from your face) to create curls.

Pro Tip: Starting the curl about an inch from the scalp and leaving the last inch or so of the ends out of the iron is a great way to create relaxed, flowy curls - and reduce damage and split ends! Allow strands to cool before tousling with your fingers into place.


STEP #4: Make it Last

Long hair can have a mind of its own! The weight of the hair can pull it down and squash the volume you worked so hard to create. 

Keeping your lift and volume throughout the day with long, thin hair requires pliable support and oil control. BOLDIFY Dry Texture Spray gives your hair the support and structure it needs to look amazing from coffee to cocktail hour… no matter what your day throws at you! Mist dry hair with an all-over blast of Dry Texture Spray for instant volume and texture, or lift sections of hair and spray the roots for targeted support.

BONUS: Our Dry Texture Spray works as a gentle, non-damaging dry shampoo alternative to freshen and boost hair on day two and beyond!
