This style offers volume and ease, suitable for low-density locks. While the upkeep is simple, keep in mind the color contrast needs regular touch-ups. A sprightly option, yet it may be a tad bold for certain professional environments.

#6: Brown Bubble Bob with Blonde Underlights

A short brown bob is the ideal hairstyle to display blonde highlights underneath. If you tuck your hair behind your ears, the side bangs will make the hidden highlights more obvious and create a peekaboo effect.

#7: Soft Boyfriend Bob with Off Center Part

A lady with a round face can wear a bob. To do this, keep the boyfriend bob slightly longer and part the hair off-center. Add a few loose waves towards the bottom to give a little movement. Keep the root area of the hair flat. Don’t add volume here, as this would make the face appear rounder.

It’s suited for women with fine hair, as the fullness of the bob gives the illusion of thicker hair. Easy enough to style, this look requires only a blow dryer and round brush, which you use to shape your hair ends inwards. For added volume, you can tease the top of your hair if you want more lift.

#10: Copper Red Short Fringe

Try copper red short fringe for a new interesting twist on your locks. Ask for a micro bang with lots of pieced-out texture, and emphasize that you want a wispy fringe. To keep this style edgy it’s important to have soft layers and low volume. I recommend a straight razor haircut for this type of style.

#11: Tousled Blonde Short Blunt Bob

A tousled short blunt bob is very trendy. If you have fine hair it will help to cut a blunt perimeter. A short bob will give you body. However, depending on your face shape, you must consider what length is best for your bob. Constitute personal style, edgy, sophisticated, glamorous, or feminine?

Short Curly and Thin Hair

Stay away from mullet-type hair and go for a short-length graduated bob with long front layers. It’s another haircut that benefits ladies with fine or thin hair. Use styling products with a light fixation that gives shine and volume to your hair, such as the Perfect Me (by EIME Wella Professionals), before and after drying.

Chic Short Rounded Bob with Long Bangs for Thin Hair

#15: Chic Rounded Bob with Long Bangs

If you’ve got thin hair and want a style to make your hair look fuller, try a rounded bob with some long bangs. The movement and bluntness of this cut give the illusion of thicker hair density. The bangs help draw attention to facial features such as cheekbones or eyes. Add in a texturizing spray to help give movement, such as IGK’s Beach Club, to give a little more lift to the roots.

#16: Simple Short Choppy Pixie

If you still want an edge, consider a short, textured pixie. This cut looks like you’ve done a lot of work, but it can be styled very simply. I always suggest that clients style with their hands, a blow dryer, and some wax. It will look like you just stepped out of the salon.

Try a wolf bob cut with wispy bangs if you have thin hair. The bangs and layers will help add body to your hair while still being easy to manage. Go for this chin-length cut if you’re looking for a bob that will further frame your face.

High Wedge Cut with a Side Part for Thin Hair
Instagram @michelle.k.harrison

#20: High Wedge Cut with a Side Part

A high wedge cut with a side part has a beautiful shape and is easy to care for. I recommend your wedged back starts at the occipital bone for an accurate shape. The shorter the back wedge line, the more dramatic your jaw-length cut will appear.

#21: Side-Parted Bob for Older Women with Glasses

If you need eyewear, I suggest a side-parted bob for older women. When deciding on your crop, my advice is always to consider your lifestyle. Glasses wearers will find that longer hair around the face works better with their day-to-day styling.

#22: Icy Blonde Pixie with Tousled Piece-y Layers

If you like texture, try an icy blonde pixie with tousled piece-y layers. The layered strands are perfect for creating a funky shape. Length is left around the ears and back, making it softer and feminine. The bangs are light and airy, enabling you to style them any way you wish.

#23: Peach Side-Swept Bangs and Cut

Peach side-swept bangs will brighten up your appearance. When dyeing your hair, going lighter and brighter will make you look younger. I recommend talking to your stylist to see what color compliments your skin tone. You will love the way shorter hair uplifts your features. The side-swept bang works well cut asymmetrically and gives you a funky shape.

#25: Wash-And-Wear Crop Cut with Wispy Layers

You should consider a wash-and-wear crop cut with wispy layers. Accent your earrings with short hair around your ears.

You might want to add highlights for extra dimension and to plump up your hair shaft.

Short Bleach Blonde Bob for Thin-Haired Women
Instagram @brianacisneros

#26: Bleach Blonde Bob

The bleach blonde bob is a stunning hairstyle seen on many catwalks this season. It’s a head-turning color and cut and if you’re going to get it, why not ask your stylist to bleach your eyebrows as well and complete the look? When the toner washes off, the color may look a bit warm. But, your hairdresser can solve this problem by applying a quick glaze to the basin.

#31: Undercut Hairstyle on White-Blonde Pixie

Try a white-blonde pixie with an undercut hairstyle for a stylish and sassy look. Keep in mind that global blonding is a high-maintenance color and will require you to visit the salon every 4-6 weeks. Waiting too long between retouches can cause banding of your hair color.

#32: Soft Pixie Cut with Razored Layers

A soft pixie cut paired with razored layers creates movement and height in fine hair. Razor cuts create blended layering that can be styled smooth or textured. Try Reverie Balm to define and piece out your texture.

Short messy beach-style waves are fabulous for thin hair.

You can use your hands to blow dry for a messy and organic finish.

Maintenance to keep this cut in good shape needs to be done every 4-6 weeks. If you ever want to grow it out again it’s easy to transform this cut into a cute bob on your way to long hair.

#90: Thin and Feminine Layered Lob

A long bob is awesome for women with thin hair that lacks texture and volume. The exact length of the bob rests based on the way the face is shaped. If cheeks are more round, ask your stylist to cut an a-line just below the chin to draw attention lengthwise. The cut is texturized one length with a side-swept front piece.

#91: Short Angled Bob

A short, angled bob is a solid choice for fine hair because the angling removes weight from your hair strands, which allows your hair to appear fuller. This is an ideal cut for women who don’t want to fuss with their hair and will benefit from the ease and versatility. Using a texture spray as a finishing product is best for this haircut.

#93: Short Shaggy Bob

A short shaggy bob is ideal because of all of the movement and texture. The layers, if styled with soft waves, look so natural on thin tresses. To add a youthful vibe, feathered bangs and a dark-rooted blonde hair color will amp up this short shaggy hair cut.

#94: Short Choppy Bob

A short choppy bob is one of the most popular choppy short haircuts for women. It gives texture and maintains a fuller style. A cut like this would work if you are growing out a short pixie and you’ve noticed some hair growth on your nape. Have your stylist cut up to the hairline in the nape area. This creates a more balanced cut between the sides growing out as the back.

#95: Short to Medium Cut

A short to medium cut is a great length to try different hairstyles. You can tie it up or wear it down. It gives the illusion of more fullness at the back while maintaining some length around the face. There are no layers, which gives it more of a blunt edge.

The #1 Rule for Cutting Thin Hair

Sarah emphasizes that the most important rule when cutting thin hair into a short style is to avoid adding too many layers around the face. She explains, “Women with thin hair have less hair on the sides near the temple and above the ear. It’s so important not to cut too much off in this area, so you’ll still has some length on the sides, which helps to create fullness for thin hairstyles.” Sarah recommends bobs, angled bobs, and pixies for the best results with thin hair.

Versatility and Styling Options

According to Sarah, the biggest benefit of these cuts is their versatility in styling. She elaborates, “You can wear this cut in many different ways. I love that you can wear it towards your face or away while being tucked behind the ears. This cut can be styled straight, beveled, wavy, or curly.”

Maintenance Considerations

Sarah notes that a potential drawback of these cuts is the need for regular maintenance. “Most likely, you will need to schedule an appointment every 4 to 6 weeks to keep it refreshed. If this is not an option for your lifestyle, I recommend a longer version.” She advises clients to consult with their stylist about the maintenance required for their chosen style.

Addressing Common Misconceptions

Sarah points out that many people, including some stylists, may not be aware that this type of cut requires fullness in the back of the head, around the occipital bone. “It is important for us as stylists to examine and determine whether or not fullness needs to be created.” For clients with a flat spot in the back of the head, Sarah suggests incorporating a soft graduated stack of layers in the nape area, not accentuating any flat areas.

Important Questions to Ask Your Stylist

Before committing to this kind of cut, Sarah emphasizes the importance of ensuring your stylist has the necessary experience and skill. She suggests asking the following questions: “Are you comfortable cutting short hair? Do you have experience with the specific look I have chosen?” Knowing your stylist can achieve your desired result will help ensure a successful haircut.
