The Best Haircuts for Women with Thinning Hair

The first step to embracing thin hair is to get a haircut that works for your unique hair texture and hair type. Ask your hairstylist for one of these haircuts for thinning hair.

Shoulder-Length Blunt Lob


A blunt “lob”, or a long bob, is a great option for women with thin hair. Shorter hair means less weight on your roots, giving hair much-needed volume and bounce. Plus, a blunt cut at your ends will make your hair appear thicker and healthier.

Angled Bob


Ask your stylist for a bob with longer pieces in the front. These long pieces will frame your face, adding volume around your face, and drawing the eye down and away from thin hair.

Shaggy Lob


Light, long layers create movement in thin hair. This is an especially great haircut trend for women with wavy hair. Just make sure to be specific that you want light layers — too many short layers will make hair look even thinner than it is.

Long with Wispy Front Layers


This is a great option if you prefer having longer hair. Ask your hairstylist to cut wispy layers at the front of your hair starting from the chin. These layers will frame your face, and can easily be curled back to create extra volume. But avoid layers in the back as these can look too stringy.

Pixie with Choppy Layers

A pixie cut is a great option for women with thin or damaged hair, since cropped hair is healthier and stronger than longer locks. This cut chops off any damaged ends giving you a fresh start for healthy hair. Short, choppy layers also give the illusion of thicker hair. Plus, this look is super easy to style! Just add some pomade and go.

Style Tips for Thin Hair

These simple styling tips will make thin hair look thicker, fuller and healthier.

1. Play with color


Ask your stylist to color your hair with deeper, darker roots and subtle highlights. This coloring technique will create the illusion of depth, making hair look thicker.

2. Try a new part


Side part

Switching your part will naturally create volume at the roots by lifting up hair that has fallen flat at your usual part. Try a deep side part to create the illusion of volume by putting all the hair on one side. Or try a subtly zigzagged part, which will add volume give hair the look of thickness and bounce.

3. Experiment with rollers


Your grandma was onto something: foam rollers are actually amazing for creating volume. Add a few rollers at your crown while you apply makeup or drink coffee, then remove and brush for gorgeously full hair. We also love that foam rollers don’t use heat, so they minimize damage to fine hair.

4. Use a thickening serum


Lay the foundation for fuller hair by using a thickening serum like Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir. Apply a small amount to wet hair, then style as normal for thicker, fuller-looking hair.

As an added benefit, nine out of 10 women who used Densifying Elixir in conjunction with Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Shampoo and Conditioner noticed thicker-looking hair in just a week.**

5. Master the blow drying technique


While we typically recommend air drying hair to keep it as healthy as possible, blow drying hair upside down is a great way to get some extra oomph before special occasions.

Always rough dry hair until it’s almost completely dry before blow drying with a brush. Not only will this prevent damage, but it will also make your hair look thicker.

6. Add texture with dry shampoo


Fine and thin hair tends to be softer, and soft hair has a harder time holding a style. You can add texture to hair by spritzing it with a dry shampoo, like Batiste dry shampoo, even if it’s clean. The powder finish of dry shampoo will make hair look thicker without weighing it down.

The Best Haircuts for Thin Long Hair


Typically, hair experts recommend that women with fine or thin hair keep their hair cut short. But having thin or fine hair doesn’t mean you can’t rock long lengths if you want to! All you need is the right haircut for thin long hair (and maybe a little extra help from Viviscal Hair Growth Supplements to make your long hair look thicker and fuller.* Keep reading to see our recommendations for the best haircuts for long fine hair!

Our 4 Favorite Haircuts for Thin Long Hair

Long Bob for Fine Hair

The long bob (or “lob”) is one of the best haircuts for thin hair. At a length that’s just above the shoulders, the long bob has enough length to frame your face. But it’s still short enough to maintain volume.

Ask your hairstylist for some slight layering to add movement. But be careful not to layer too much, since that can remove some of the bulk from your hair and actually make your hair look thinner. When it comes to fine hair, a little layering goes a long way!

The long bob for fine hair is super easy to style because it’s all about creating an effortless look. Start by applying a pea-size amount of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir to slightly damp hair. Viviscal Densifying Elixir is a lightweight, body-boosting treatment that creates the appearance of thicker-looking hair. So it’s the perfect styling product for a lob haircut. Then, braid hair into one or two loose braids and allow to sit for an hour or two. Remove the braids and finger comb your hair to finish the look. So simple!

Blunt & Shoulder-Length

We love this haircut for fine long hair because the blunt ends make hair look denser. Plus, this haircut is chic and very on-trend right now! Just ask your hairstylist for a blunt cut that grazes the collarbones.

  1. Wash and condition your hair using Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo and Conditioner. When used together, these products gently cleanse and lightly condition the hair with exclusive Ana:Tel™ complex plus the key nutrients Biotin, Keratin and Zinc, leaving hair looking naturally thicker and fuller.
  2. Next, apply a small amount of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir throughout hair.
    Flip your head over and blow dry your roots upside down (one of our secrets for extra volume!).
  3. Then, with your head right side up, blow dry hair with the nozzle pointing downwards to reduce frizz.
  4. Finish by taming any additional frizz or flyaways with a small amount of anti-frizz serum.

Wavy with Long Layers

Beachy waves are one of the best ways to add the appearance of volume to fine or thin hair. Ask your hairstylist for a long or mid-length cut with light, slightly feathered layers.

Then, curl hair with a large-barreled curling iron, alternating the direction of the curls. Hint: leave your ends out of the curling iron for a more modern, undone look. Once your hair has cooled, finger comb the curls to break them up a bit. Then, finish with a mist of hairspray.

Long Shag

This combination of long layers and long bangs adds volume and movement to thin hair, making it look thicker and fuller. Plus, the bangs draw attention to your eyes and away from thin ends. That’s why this is one of our favorite long layered haircuts for thin hair!

To style, start by washing hair with Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo and Conditioner. Work a small amount of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir throughout hair as a body-boosting, lightweight treatment. Rough blow dry hair until it’s completely dry. Then wrap random sections around a 1-inch curling iron to add extra texture. Finish by tousling your hair with your fingers, and that’s it!

Long hair isn’t out of the question for women with fine or thin hair! All you need is the right haircut to pull off longer lengths without losing volume.
