9 Brilliant Hair Hacks For Thin Hair

There is a reason why people call hair one’s crowning glory. A bad hair day can ruin your mood and mess with your self-esteem, while a good hair day can make you feel like a million dollars.

A fabulous haircut can slim your face while the wrong hairdo can suddenly make you look 10 pounds heavier. But no matter what face shape you have or what age you are, we all dream of having the full, silky and luscious locks like those of the models and celebrities that we see in shampoo ads and on the covers of magazines.

So where does that leave the ladies with thin, fine hair? Luckily, with plenty of options! Just as the right blusher can make you look a decade younger and the right eyebrow-shape can make you look like you just had a face-lift, the right hairstyle and hair products can make thin hair look like a generous, luscious mane.

Here are 9 brilliant hair hacks that will have fine-hair dames looking like they’ve got more hair than they know what to do with.

 

Blunt Cut That Sweeps the Shoulders

Long hair can make hair look even thinner so it’s a good idea to keep it shoulder-length or even shorter. To add even more body, a blunt cut can help to create the illusion of thicker hair. Finally, you want to avoid too many layers as that would really thin your hair out.

 

Do A Side Part

If you are wont to give up your long locks, you can try creating more volume by parting your hair deeper to one side. You’re making your tresses appear more voluminous by amassing all your hair to one side and adding some lift to the roots.

Unless you have a round visage, you may also want to consider adding bangs to your haircut. The thicker and blunter the bangs, the fuller your hair would look

 

An Uneven Pixie Cut

Shorter strands are stronger than longer ones, so a pixie cut is a great option when you have very fine hair. To add more volume, make it a choppy crop. Add a product such as a light hair balm that doesn’t weigh your locks down but yet help to create texture and definition.

 

An Angled Bob

The rounded edges of a classic bob is always a good choice, creating the illusion of fullness. Angled bobs are shorter in the back and longer in the front. Also known as lobs, these not only help to create more volume, it also helps frame the face, making it incredibly flattering for most face shapes.

 

Play With Colour

Highlights are a great way to add volume for two reasons, the different shades create dimension while modern colouring processes also open up hair cuticles and cause strands to thicken from the inside. For some colouring options that require less maintenance, you can ask your stylist about balayage or ombre.

 

Invest In A Curling Iron

One way to get fuller looking hair is to get a perm, but if you don’t wish to be fully committed, get yourself a good curling iron or wand (or even some old-school rollers). You could go for some fun curls or try some loose beachy waves. Either would create much-needed volume and fun anytime you feel like it.

 

Use A Volumising Shampoo & Conditioner

One way to get fuller looking hair is to get a perm, but if you don’t wish to be fully committed, get yourself a good curling iron or wand (or even some old-school rollers).

Mousse Is Your Best Friend

There was a time that putting mousse in your hair meant you were going to have stiff and crunchy hair (think Madonna circa 80s). But these days, the right styling mousse can provide thin hair with some added volume without all that crunchiness. Try rubbing in a small amount of mousse to wet hair and letting it air dry. For a blowdry, use a round brush and blow hair in sections beginning at the front, followed by the sides and finally, the back of the head.

Other volumising products to try are sea salt and texturising sprays. And note that while serums and oils are great for adding shine, these won’t do fine hair any favours when it comes to volume.

 

Dry Shampoo to Extend Your Blowout

If you just did an awesome blowout and want it to last a little longer, then you should give dry shampoo a try. Applying some of it at the scalp will freshen up your hairdo by sweeping up the oil that has built up in the last couple of days, and add texture and volume at the roots at the same time. No more mistakes for your hair’s appearance for sure!
