A full head of hair is often portrayed as an ideal image. But every hair structure is different, especially thin hair that needs a lot of attention. We present the best short hairstyles for thin hair that bring out volume and shine.
While some ladies' arms regularly get heavy when blow-drying, others only need two minutes. The fact that the hair dries so quickly is an advantage of thin hair. At the same time, however, it is more difficult to give volume to the fine strands of hair. It is therefore important to know your own hair structure and how to deal with it correctly.
Somehow your own braid never looks as full as with other women? Does your hair always seem to lie flat on your head and get knotted quickly? Then thinning hair is probably the cause. But don't worry, with the right styling and care tips, you can also conjure up a powerful-looking mane from the thin and fine hair.
Proper care for thin hair is very important to keep hair healthy. Master hairdresser Giulia Hiller from Ulm advises: “It is best to wash your hair every two to four days with restorative shampoo. Also, use conditioner after each wash and leave in a hair mask for fine hair every five to six washes.” Also, don’t put too much strain on your hair. That means little heat and no bleaching at best.
Thin hair is delicate and breaks more easily than thick hair. So that you still look healthy and voluminous, you should rely on the following short hairstyles for thin hair:
Bob almost always looks neat. No wonder it is one of the most popular short hairstyles. The bob doesn't take a lot of effort either: "I recommend volume spray for styling," says Giulia Hiller, "a few waves make the whole thing look more elegant." If you like it a little more playful, you can have the bob layered. Actress Lucy Hale has been backing the bob for years.
If you like to wear your hair a little longer, the long bob is a good choice. The timeless hairstyle flatters every face shape and conjures up a lot of volumes. The length is long enough to tie a ponytail. The expert also knows: "Blow-drying with a round brush gives you a beautiful shape and makes your hair shine." Influencer Gerda Lewis shows how it's done:
It is considered the trend hairstyle 2022! All the better that the sliced bob is particularly suitable for women with thin hair. This is an accurate cut that leaves the front hair a little longer. Stars like Selena Gomez are already fans of the new trend look:
"With a well-done pixie cut, you don't even notice what the hair structure is like," says the master hairdresser. That is why the pixie should not be missing among the best short hairstyles for thin hair. The look works classic or with an undercut. Depending on your mood, you can experiment with parting and styling. Many stars have already inspired us with a pixie cut. One of the all-time favorites is and remains the beautiful Halle Berry.
