How To Make Thin Hair Appear Thicker - Bangstyle

Good hair days look different for everyone — mostly because each hair type faces their own challenges. And, let’s face it, we also usually want what we can’t have. While some love a smooth and sleek style, others may be looking to add thickness to their finished look. If you’re volume-challenged read on to hear more about our top tips to help fine hair look thicker!

How To Add Volume to Fine or Thin Hair

If you have fine/thin hair and want to add (and keep) volume throughout the day, it is essential to pick your products carefully. Because fine or thin hair is easily weighed down, the biggest obstacle you probably face is adding enough products to get the look without so many that it will cause it to fall limp. Add the constant change in weather, and this is probably a challenge you face daily.

Our Top Care & Styling Tips

  • The right haircut can make all the difference. If you consistently battle against gravity, a trip to the salon might be the best place to start. By adding (or removing) layers or length and changing up your shape based on your hair type and style, your hairdresser can built in volume and a thicker feel where you need it most.
  • Play with your part. If you consistently wear your hair parted in the middle, your hair will tend to fall a little flat. By flipping your part from side to side, you can instantly build volume into your style with a simple flick.
  • Flip your head as you blow-dry. It is a small detail, but flipping your hair upside down or using a round brush and air directed upwards can help build volume and thickness into our hair as you style.
  • Consider your color. From highlights and lowlights to well placed color, by adding highs and lows it naturally gives off the feel of dimension. This in turn translates to more depth and a thicker looking finish.
  • Backcomb & tease. When all else fails you, using a traditional method of backcombing or teasing to manually add volume and thickness to your hair will always do the trick!
