The Short Choppy Pixie Bob

Q&A with style creator, Vladimir Zankishiev
Barber @ Demetrius in Moscow, RU


How would you describe this?

Short bobs for fine hair show boldness to have the courage to infringe on absolute freedom.

This choppy bob haircut was cut using the Demetrius technique that allows you to control the progress of work at each stage. While using shears, each of the sections of the hair was laid and refined while dried to perfection. At any stage, you can adjust the idea, based on the characteristics of the client.

The coolest thing in the Demetrius technique for women with thin hair is that the daily styling does not take much time, and growing the haircut does not deform but retains its shape.

What’s your best advice?

For styling this bob style for thin hair, I recommend using paste waxes and stronghold products. Rub directly into the roots and hands to create any accents. You can ruffle the hair on top, and frame the face with long thin strands.

What’s your best advice?

The beauty of bob haircuts for fine hair, if it is done correctly, is that it is very easy to style whether you blow it dry or not.

How would you describe this?

This soft bob hairstyle for fine hair is a cute cut that’s very versatile, as you can wear it straight but also wavy or messy.

What’s your best advice?

A blunt cut makes for really nice bobs for thin hair to appear fuller.

For this medium-length bob add some kind of salt spray to add volume to the roots, and if you want a little more undone look, then you can use it all over.

Use a good heat protectant for the blow-dry and finish with a lightweight oil in the ends to give it shine and get rid of frizzy hairs.

How would you describe this?

This is an edgy, cool bob haircut for fine hair.

My favorite part of this cut is the texture within the bob. Fine hair can really thrive in a short cut when you create some movement.

What’s your best advice?

Thin hair bobs with undercuts are a lot of maintenance, so it’s not the move for everyone unless you are willing to keep up with the look.

A short blunt cut bob is great for women with strong facial features and will help bring those features to life.

My number one styling tip for bob cuts for fine hair is using texturizing sprays or cream to add a little bit of grit and volume.

Owner & Stylist @ Aga’s Hairstyling in Bedfordshire, LDN


How would you describe this?

This is a choppy medium graduated, layered bob cut for fine hair.

What’s your best advice?

If you have naturally straight thin hair, you can style this bob hairdo with GHD irons to create smooth waves and a more polished look.

Adding layers around the face can soften the face, and so do waves and the blonde color of the ends.

This bob cut is great for busy ladies, often moms who don’t have time to style their hair for very long and who are looking for an easy but flattering and feminine bob style for fine hair.

For women with fine curly hair, you can leave it to dry naturally using a bit of a curl-defining lotion or serum.

A Wavy Bob with Bangs for Thin Hair

Q&A with style creator, Serena Loren
Hair Stylist / Colorist @ Capelli Salon and Spa Boutique in Warwick, NY


How would you describe this?

This is a modern medium bob shag that meets wavy long bob for fine hair with a feathered fringe.

The perimeter was entirely point cut with shear, and all the layering was done with a razor.

Women with fine hair can wear this shaggy bob shape on the more polished side being smoother and blown out, or with a beach wave texture, as well as wearing it with her own natural curl.

What’s your best advice?

The face shape is key for bob cuts for thin hair, as not every woman’s facial shape will be best suited specifically with bangs.

More square or oval-shaped faces are more likely to be able to wear bangs with this bob without it making the face shape look disproportioned.
