27 Cutest Short, Choppy Bobs for Fine Hair to Have More Volume

Cindy Marcus
Cindy Marcus Hairstylist, Editor-in-Chief

Choppy short bobs for fine hair are textured cuts that provide movement and volume. These cuts create the perfect tousled styles for fun, modern women!

Stylist Marcy Malin of Phoenix, AZ, approves of this bob cut. “A choppy cut is great to elevate your style while keeping it lived-in and effortless,” she states.

If you like to pull your hair back, you won’t be able to tie it, but a headband is an option.

Malin warns about fine tresses getting too many layers. She says, “You can still get a fun, choppy look without cutting too short of layers. A razor cut is great for this cut.”

Commitment to styling is essential, especially on wash day. Fine hair tends to fall flat easily, so apply products before styling.

You can use a mousse before blow drying, then finish with a dry texture spray to enhance the texture. If air drying, Malin suggests Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray or Don’t Blow It. These can help add body and avoid that “first day, too clean” feeling.

“Make sure you can recreate the new look once you leave the salon. Don’t be afraid to ask your stylist for the home care routine. Get some styling tips and product recommendations to keep your cut fresh,” Malin advises.
