Welcome to our 2018 gallery featuring women’s hairstyles with fine hair.

This hair type can be challenging but also beautiful as you’ll see from our many examples below.

Long and wispy, blonde in a messy but unique hairstyle. Front section of the hair is pulled-back into this huge and loose dutch braid then turned it into a messy knot.

Very long and and fine blonde hair in a messy half-up style. This updo is a pretty stay-at-home and sweater weather style.

The lady is wearing a boxer-style fishtail braids, great for beach activities. This one looks sweet but sporty as well.

A typical long bob but with a nice texture and an extra shage. Looks quite messy but it is surely gorgeous.

Blonde bob upgraded to a free-spirited look by tossing the strands, creating a good texture.

Fine vs. Thin hair

There’s a difference.  Thin or thinning hair is when one is losing their hair.

Fine hair is a full head of hair but the hair is fine.  Each hair has very narrow circumference.

What are the best haircuts for fine hair?

The two best haircuts are bobs and pixies.

Within those two main cut styles, you have plenty of options including layers, textures, tapering, feathering, messy/loose, etc.

Can you add volume to fine hair?

You can try volumizing shampoos and conditioners and sprays and if that works, terrific.  If not, accept it and get a cut/style that works well with fine hair.  Frankly, instead of trying to make long work with a bunch of product, I think getting a cut that works with the hair without product is best.

Treat it well

Fine hair, as you’d expect and perhaps as you’ve experienced, can damage easily.  This is another reason to go easy on product as well as applying heat to it.  It’s not that you can’t apply heat, but get a great hair dryer for fine that has temperature control options.

I would avoid excessive use of other heat-applying hair appliances such as crimpers and curling irons; the risk is too high. Why damage otherwise beautiful hair?

Another process to avoid is coloring it too much.  Most fine hair is blonde, but there’s also gray and even brunette fine hair.  Coloring can be hard on hair so minimize doing it and if you do it, opt for a more natural product even if it costs more.
