Best Hairstyles for Thin Hair

Fitzsimons says wispy bangs add volume to sparse hair easily. They also frame your face and keep you light while you simulate bigger hair

A shag cut adds body and shape to any hair texture with subtle layers. For effortlessly stylish edgy rocker vibes, add slightly ragged bangs.

Give hair a deep side part and curl the ends for a throwback look. For big volume, this works well with a bob.


Long hair thins out, so keep it short with a chin-grazing bob. Celebrity hairstylist Irinel de León says a crop naturally adds fullness, especially with a thick bottom line. 

Style protective braids with a half-up, half-down style and a braided top knot. It looks great and adds volume instantly.

Face-framing layers are popular for thin hair. They add definition and lovely body and movement.

Layered bobs are generally flattering. Fitzsimons suggests this cut for wavy and curly hair to define and shape.
