5 styles to make your thin hair look thicker
Jul. 22, 2020
Is your fine hair feeling lifeless, limp and flat? Naturally thin hair needs to be snipped, styled and shaped to encourage bouncier, more voluminous locks. Without the right cut, no amount of products, curling, or pulling will give it the fuller look you want to achieve. With a few standard hair rules and cutting techniques, your thin hair can be on its way to a voluminous style in no time.
To make things easier, we’ve rounded up the best 5 haircuts that magically add volume to thin hair no matter what length you currently have. So when you go in for your next hair appointment, you can present one of these hairstyles for your thin hair and say goodbye to lifeless locks and hello to mega volume.
Long, light layers
For longer hair, over-layering can actually do more harm than good if you want more fullness. Stay away from shaggy layers which can make hair look finer than it is. Opt for layering just around the face and highlight lighter in these areas to really highlight and enhance the fullness of your style. Cameron Diaz has perfected the ‘windblown but interesting’ wave look, thanks to the slightly tapered ends of her style.
Blunt cuts are trending, which is great for thinner hair, because they can actually make your hair appear fuller. A lob is a long bob which is excellent for making thin hair seem thicker. At the salon, ask for a cut that’s right above the shoulders like Margot Robbie’s. This cut creates the appearance of extra weight on the ends. To style: go for a deep side part, apply a generous amount of serum and style straight to enhance that blunt cut.
Medium + side bangs
Another celeb who nails ‘70s side bangs is Dakota Johnson. These long bangs can be flattering on all face shapes and especially work for gals with thinner hair. With bangs parted in the middle and cut to curve the cheekbones, it’s soft and effortless. Bangs add fullness and serve as a distraction from thin hair, especially at the top. To finish off a look like Johnson’s, just add a few spritzes of powder texturizing spray to encourage volume.
This one's for all our super short styled thin haired gals. Adding a wave to the middle of your hair will give the illusion of a thicker fuller style. A short wavy bob is a haircut between jaw to shoulder-length that’s styled with waves. Tousled strands are on trend for their glamorously low-upkeep requirement and everyone’s excited to jump into this perfect hairstyle!
The new swag is everywhere right now, and these easy, flowy bangs will pump up even the finest hair. If you have a lob you could easily transition to the swag. Longer layers and peek-a-boo bangs designed at different lengths depending on your face shape. The key is lots of razored texture and movement in the hair.
Perricone MD—lipstick edition!!
So this is the Perricone MD - No Makeup Lipstick SPF 15 in shade “Original Pink” I love this lipstick because it has SPF, smells amazing, and is actually SUPER moisturizing to the lips. I dislike this lipstick because their colors NEVER match the description! This lipstick is their “original pink” and this lipstick doesn’t even have a hint of pink. It goes on looking like a dark brownish-red. Now, I personally ended up liking the color but it is NOTHING like what I thought it would be. I’ve attached a picture of it on their website so you can see just how contrasting the colors are 🤯 For $30 I would not repurchase this product. I gave it 4 stars because it works like it says but the shade is a big deal for me and I hate false advertising.
THIS IS A FRESH 👏🏾START 👏🏾
THIS is why I love BoxyCharm 🙌🏾 These products wouldn’t have been on my radar, but they were delivered right to my door + I absolutely LOVE all of them! And this olive eye!! I’m feelin it!

It has definitely helped my skin stay hydrated and even makes it look more glowy and matte! I love the texture and it absorbs quickly! #Avant Skincare - Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Rejuvenating Micellar Water[products]#[FourStars] This reneges ALL my makeup, even mascara, with no issues! My skin feels smooth and hydrated after using it. However, it has a LOT of fragrance. I don't mind the smell, but it does linger. #Seraphine Botanicals - Apple + Baume Glow Lip Mask[products]#[FiveStars] A great lip mask! Hydrated lips nicely! I like applying this as I start my makeup routine and it's usually absorbed by the time I get to my lips. #Trust Fund Beauty - Lipgasm Lip Gloss[products]#[FourStars] this is a pretty gloss but it is a bit sticky.

My well-loved drugstore makeup essentials
These are the drugstore makeup picks I ACTUALLY use! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Tarte Shapetape Concealer. Even the latest launches from Rare Beauty have me swooning. But drugstore makeup holds a special place in my heart. Walking through the aisles of Target or CVS gets me giddy. Quite honestly, I count those trips as my therapy sessions. Plus, these are the places were I started getting essentials to experiment with when I was younger! My favorite brands to score from are no doubt Pixi, NYX, Essence Cosmetics, Sonia Kashuk, Maybelline and Covergirl. They’re just my go-to’s! They’re the brands constantly putting out dupes for cult favorites. Everything in this picture, I use on a daily basis. I’ve been going through Maybelline Lifter Glosses like they’re going out of style. I actually was responsible for my local Target running out of stock once...oops. Another new essential that’s crawled its way into my everyday routine is the Covergirl Cooling Glow Stick. It’s part of their new Clean Fresh line and I use it on my WHOLE face. Top tip: try it under your eyes over your concealer 👀 I’m still in search for the perfect drugstore CC cream, does anyone have any good recommendations?
