Everyday Hairstyles for Thin Hair – Let’s face the bitter reality – dealing with thin hair can be a bummer at times. For some ladies, thin hair is the go-to volume they desire for their manes. But on the other side of the pond, dealing with less volume can be daunting especially when it comes to styling options.
There’re numerous ways you can play around with your thin hair. But not to overwhelm you at first, we’ve put up a list of a few killer hairstyles that will be worth the try.
So get a hold of your locks and read on.
The bob is a rather common style that we’ve seen a couple of A-List celebrities don. And you don’t need thick hair to look sharp in it.
Bobs are used to create the illusion of fuller strands. So, they’re perfect for thin hair. And a bonus? You don’t need mad skills to pull it off.
All you have to do is blow-dry your hair to the side you don’t want the parting on. Once it’s dry, flip it to the side you want the parting to be.
Ponytails are unrivaled by one thing – practicality. And as far as practicality goes, ponytails on thin hair might not sound that workable. But, add a bit of curl, and you have an exciting hairstyle.
Using a curling wand to curl the hair helps add that bit of volume you need to pull off the perfect ponytail look. If you skip this step, the ponytail might end up looking weighed down and straggly.
But what happens when I have to stay with this style all day?
You can source the help of strong-hold hairsprays. These sprays ensure the curls remain curly all day long, even after they’ve cooled.
And even if you have a wig on, like this one from EvaWigs, this hairstyle is still bound to work perfectly, all day.
Blogger Bun or Messy Bun
Why the word “blogger” in the name you ask? Because this style was made popular by ladies on Instagram.
However, it’s more than a style for the Gram.
If you want something easy to do, funky, and not in need of a ton of attention, then this is the style to rock. The blogger bun allows you to backcomb freely, until the point you feel the look is perfect.
That means that with this style, there’s less worrying about whether the hair is neat – because the look needs to carry an undone perception to it.
Cropped Messy Waves
If you are looking for length coupled with dimension and the illusion of thicker hair, then you need to try-out cropped messy waves. With this style, the cut is made shorter at the back, leaving longer pieces at the front.
The idea here is to have the waves look loose and messy while framing the face perfectly.
All you need to achieve this look is a flat iron that you’ll use to twist the hair away from the face.
Double Lace Braid
For braid lovers, this is the thin hair hairstyle that got you covered. Even more specific, if you have thin and flat hair, then this is the best style to consider.
Now, you can’t do much to cover for the lost volume, but you can use impeccable styling to draw the attention away from the hair volume to the intricacies of the braiding.
This means that the braiding needs to be top-notch. And if you want an even sleeker look, you can straighten the locks.
This look made it to the New York Fashion Week runway, showing a clever way of alluding volume in thin hair.
The twisted knot uses a knitting style that creates an illusion of very thick hair. The effect gets even more pronounced if you use volumizing mousse. Add to the twists at the hairline, and someone might think you have thick roots too.
