There is no secret that dealing with thin and fine hair can be quite a challenge. The first step would be to choose a flattering haircut that will fight the main difficulty: flatness. Here are several options that will definitely work. 

Neck-length Bob with or without Bangs

An old-time favorite haircut that is very popular all around the world is neck-length bob. Its main advantage is that it looks good on almost every hair- and face-type including fine and thin hair. It provides a good volume as well as shape. Moreover, using certain styling techniques such as brushing on a fan you can achieve even more volume. Bob with bangs is also a good option because it can visually make the hair look thicker due to the different length of strands. 


No list for thin and fine hair goes without pixie. For those women who enjoy a short haircut, it is a perfect option all ways considered.

Nothing new here: as well as all the rest options on our list, they solve the problem of thinness.

Asymmetrical Bob Hairstyles for Thin Hair

A classic bob is perfect for thin hair but if you are looking for something more modern and trendy, asymmetrical bob is what you need. It is a bob haircut that involved chopping your hair in different lengths. It could be short from one side and gets longer as it moves to the back all the way to the other side.

When going for this haircut, it will give you better results if you consider the following;

  • The color you want, will it be your natural hair color or a different dye shade?
  • How short are you willing to cut your hair?
  • Will it fit your skin tone and eye color?
  • Are you looking for an official and executive cut or a casual haircut?

If your hair is thin, you need a hairstyle that will give it an illusion of thickness and volume. The asymmetrical bob comes in different trendy styles that you can choose from:

Asymmetrical with Choppy Layers

This bob has an A-line back and a well-defined middle parting. It makes your thin hair appear thick and frame your face really well. It is perfect for casual occasions and you can hold one side up with a bobby pin for an executive professional look. The choppy layers give it a light feeling and a shiny polished finish.

Off-Center Dark Base Long Bob

This is most popular among African American ladies looking for contrast. The base of the hair along the roots is left dark colored while the rest of the hair is dyed blonde and straightened. The back is short to the nape of the neck, one side to barely touch the chin while the other side falls slightly on the shoulders.

Wavy Bob with Side Part

This is a perfect haircut for thin black hair with a naturally wavy texture. Feathered layered give it a light look yet the waves give it volume making your thin hair appear thick and shiny. For an awesome polished finish, have the back cut short, one side to the cheekbone and the other a bit longer with curly waves.

Short Ombre Asymmetrical Bob with Shaved Back

This is a haircut that will get you feeling and looking confident and sexy. The backside from the bottom tip of the ears is shaved as well as the sides’ along with the sideburns. The rest of the hair from the crown upward is given an asymmetrical cut with an ombre that has a dark base and golden blonde tips. A side parting and a side-swept long fringe gives this style an extra glow and an attractive appearance.

These are not only very good looking styles for you but also have great benefits for you. They are suitable for any face shape and will be fine with short or mid-length hair.
