Top 5 Hairstyles for Fine Thin Hair

Why is it that we always want what someone else has? We often notice that people with thin or fine hair seem to always want thicker, fuller hair, while people with thick, full hair seem to envy those with thinner, more manageable hair.

At Toppik, our aim is to help those with fine, thin, or thinning hair find convenient solutions to accentuate the gorgeous hair that they already have. With a few hair tips from us, we hope you’ll finally start to love the hair you have, and no longer wish for anyone else’s hair but your own.

Is Your Hair Thick or Thin?

Before we dive in, if you aren’t sure about the type of hair you have, there is an easy technique to help you determine whether you have thick or thin hair. If you are able to place your hair in a ponytail, the circumference of the ponytail will tell you the amount of thickness your hair holds. Typically 2 inches or less indicates “thin hair” and 4 inches or more is considered to be “thick hair.”

Now that you know more about your hair type, your haircut and hairstyle should largely be determined by the type of hair you have. Too often we see women with thick hair trying to sport a pixie cut, or women with thin hair trying to accomplish layers, or men who are just starting to lose hair shave their whole head right away. It’s crucial that you know what your hair is capable of, and you work with it instead of against it.

Top Hairstyles for Thin or Fine Hair

Thin Hair Tip 1 - grow bangs

This layered haircut with sweeping bangs creates the illusion of volume without making the hair look too big. The side-swept bangs frame the face and give the hair texture, instead of falling flat.

Thin Hair Tip 2 - blunt haircut

A blunt haircut sheared all the way across gives the hair a more fuller look and feel.  A clean line helps to draw attention to the face and away from the hair.

Thin Hair Tip 3 - pixie cut

The pixie cut is a great way to hide thin or fine hair completely. A layered pixie with subtle highlights adds texture and the allusion of volume to the cut.

Thin Hair Tip 4 - receding hairline

If your hair is thinning slowly, a longer haircut is a great way to hide an early receding hairline. Once you grow out the hair on the top of the head, simply brush the hair forward to hide any signs of hair loss or hair thinning.

Thin Hair Tip 5 - short & spiky

If your hair is beginning to thin all over, a short and spiky thin hairstyle might work well. It will help create the look of volume while also focusing the attention on where the hair is, instead of areas where the hair might be thinning.

Thin and Fine Hair Maintenance

Once you’ve selected a hairstyle appropriate for your hair type, it’s also important to equip yourself with the right products to help you achieve the look of full, thick hair.

If, when styling your hair, you find that some areas of your hair look thinner than other areas, consider using Toppik Hair Building Fibers to help touch-up and hide these thinning areas. They also work great around the hairline and for larger areas of hair loss.

Helpful Tip! You can build and reapply as needed. The travel-size Hair Building Fibers conveniently fit in a purse or pocket – making them a great on-the-go item.

Another product that you may want to consider is a volumizing gel or cream – this can help to give your hair added body and shape. Toppik Hair Fattener adds body, shape and a bit of shine and durability, so your hair appears thicker and fuller instantly and remains looking great throughout the day.

Once you’ve styled your hair and added Hair Building Fibers where necessary, the last step is making sure your hairstyle will stay in place all day. Toppik FiberHold Spray not only provides long-lasting hold, but also ensures any Hair Building Fibers that you’ve applied stay in place by strengthening the bond between the Hair Fibers and your hair. This means your hairstyle is now ready to last as long as you need it to.

    I have used Toppik Hair building Fibers and Toppik Hair Fattener for a couple of years now. Don’t know what I did without it before! My baby-fine thin hair is getting thinner and thinner, but others can’t tell. I have a somewhat spiky haircut with wispy sides, back and bangs. I also use hair paste, gel and freezing spray. So part of the secret is product. . .lots and lots of product!

    I am 84 years old and I do like the results with using you product. I use the white powder which helps to cover the pink scalp. It helps me feel more confident that I don’t look awful..
