The Top 5 Haircuts for Fine Hair

The right haircuts for fine hair can bring out its natural shine and beauty. The wrong cut, on the other hand, can make limp hair appear lifeless, as if everyday was a bad hair day. Many celebrities have fine hair but they often manage to look great regardless. Just consider stars such as Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson. Judging by the way their hair looks on photos and videos – thick, shiny, lively – it’s often difficult to believe that these women actually have fine hair.

True, both stars are likely to use hair extensions but it also helps that they have hair stylists they can turn to for the right hair cut. If you have fine hair and often have to contend with limpness even on your best days, consider the right cuts and styles that maximize the texture and appearance of your hair. Here are some of the best cuts you might want to consider:


The Bob has been rocking limp hair for decades. It is a classic cut that looks great on types of face shapes, although it does tend to emphasize a strong jawline. The Bob is usually cut straight at the length of the ear lobes and accessorized with soft bangs in front. The Bob creates volume at the back and makes fine hair appear thicker.

Cap Cut

The Cap Cut softens features with thicker and more pronounced bangs. It looks great on small or oval-shaped faces because it enhances the lovely frame of the face.

Layered Mid-Length

Barely shoulder-length, this cut shows off diagonally cut layers on the side that creates body, especially when blow-dried.

Layered Shag

The layers on this cut makes fine hair appear thick. There is also enough flexibility in this cut since it can be worn loose or tied back.


The crop is a short, tapered style that looks great on women in their 20s and 30s. It also draws the focus on the eyes, which helps create drama so less-than-ideal skin is less noticeable.

 Creating the Best Haircuts

When working with clients with fine hair, knowing the right style will help enhance their looks and allow them to look great without a lot of treatments and artificial extensions and accessories. As a professional, learning the right haircuts for fine hair will ensure that you will always meet and even exceed your clients’ expectations.
