If you’re looking for a way to modernize your hair without losing any length, curtain bangs are the way to go. We are seeing this haircut trend everywhere in 2021. And the best part? Curtain bangs are flattering for fine and thin hair. By pushing more hair to the front, curtain bangs create the illusion of fuller hair.

2. The Pixie

The pixie haircut is back in a big way. The shorter length highlights your facial features while disguising hair thinning. Plus, the pixie is easy to style, which saves on time.

3. The Box Bob

If you prefer longer hair, try a box bob. This simple bob haircut has minimal layers, which helps fine hair to appear more full at the ends.

To style, add a little bit of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir throughout the hair. Then use a flat iron to bend the hair, adding texture and dimension.

The Best Summer 2021 Hair Color Trends for Fine & Thinning Hair

1. Money Highlights

These aren’t your 90s version of chunky highlights. 2021’s update is softer and more blended, which creates more dimension in fine hair.

2. Buttery Blonde

Goodbye, ash tones! Warm-toned hair is making a comeback this summer. If you have light hair, consider visiting your colorist for a warmer, golden-toned blonde or strawberry blonde.

3. Soft Ombré

Brunettes can go a bit lighter for summer with a soft ombré. Soft ombré hair is just a shade or two lighter at the ends with a gradual fade to natural (or natural-looking roots). Hint: make sure that you choose a colorist who has plenty of experience with this advanced coloring technique. Ask to see examples of their work before booking an appointment.

Our Top Summer Hair Care Tips

Between the sun, salt, and chlorine, summer fun can really do a number on your hair. And if your hair is fine or thinning, it’s even more prone to damage. Follow these simple hair care tips to maintain your hair’s health all summer long.

1. Cover Up

Believe it or not, UV rays damage your hair just like how they damage your skin. If you plan to spend some time in the sunshine, shield your hair against sun damage by wearing a wide-brim hat. If hats aren’t your style, invest in a sunscreen formulated for hair (yes, they exist!).

2. Nourish from the Inside Out

No matter the season, it’s always important to eat a diet that supports healthy hair growth.

That’s why we recommend making Viviscal Hair Growth Supplements a part of your healthy hair routine. Viviscal provides a clinically proven solution for women suffering from fine or thinning hair to achieve thicker, fuller, and healthier hair in 3–6 months*. The combination of AminoMarTM plus key vitamins and minerals in Viviscal is scientifically proven to nourish thinning hair and promote existing hair growth*. In clinical studies, women saw a 32% increase in the number of terminal hairs and a nearly 40% decrease in hair shedding in just 3 months+.

Just two supplements per day support regular hair growth for fuller and healthier hair all year long*.

3. Rinse & Repeat

If you’re going swimming – whether in a pool, lake, or ocean – make sure to rinse out your hair before and after your swim. Wetting down your hair will keep it from absorbing chemicals while you swim, and rinsing afterward will wash away any unwanted residue.
