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.
There are a lot of different ways you can style this cut, but our favorite is sleek and straight. Here’s how to do it:
- 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.
- 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!).
- Then, with your head right side up, blow dry hair with the nozzle pointing downwards to reduce frizz.
- 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.
To style, spritz slightly damp hair with a sea salt spray and blow dry until hair is completely dry. 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.
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.
