Hairstyles for Long Thin Hair
Actually, you can count on a wide range of fabulous hairstyles – updos and downdos which you wouldn’t believe are made on thin hair, so charming and classy they are. Use bouffant, backcombing, highlights, waves and curls like in pictures below. These are the little tricks to make our locks appear thicker. And most of us use them from time to time, who doesn’t?
1. Shaggy Blonde Waves
Shaggy razor-cut layers provide texture without harsh and heavy lines which can weigh thin hair down. Natural beach waves offer the perfect amount of volume for a casually sexy style.
2. Wavy Hairstyle with Long Choppy Layers
Layered cuts are a great fit for any hair type, even for locks lacking body, as the latter can be built through the cutting process. Curling and finishing with a volumizing hair spray ensures hair doesn’t fall flat. Platinum weaved with a neutral or cool brown is a great hair color choice for this cut.
3. Subtly Layered Caramel Hairstyle
Carefully placed highlights can add dimension to play up long thin hairstyles, while inconspicuous changes in length create movement. These two paired prevent a style from seeming boring or plain. A straight hairdo is easily softened by simply bending the ends of the hair inward.
4. Chocolate Fountain
The soft lines and delicious chocolate hue of this fantastic hairstyle for long thin hair literally mesmerize. Don’t be afraid to ask your stylist for layering if your locks are fine. Just let the layers be fewer, longer and softer. Cascading down your shoulders, your thin locks are going to look fabulous.
5. Long A-Line Style for Fine Hair
If you prefer one-level haircuts with thicker edges, that’s a good choice for long thin hair, but have at least the front tresses, framing your face, layered and complete the look with long slanting bangs. This is a good base for beautiful updos and half up half down hairstyles.
