Layered hairstyles are one of the best hairstyles for almost everyone. Layers add life to limp hair, lighten up thick hair, and flatter every face shape.
There is one exception: Thin hair.
Having thin hair means not having many strands of hair all over while fine hair refers to the thickness of each individual strand. Some people have full heads of fine hair, perfect for layering, while for thin and fine hair, layers are a don’t. Layered cuts for fine hair can make hair seem thinner, encourage fly-aways, and create wispy ends. In fact, layers can even make thin, fine hair frizzy and out of control (not the goal, right?).
To appear full, voluminous, and smooth, haircuts for thin hair should keep as much length, and therefor weight, as possible. This doesn’t mean you have to wear hair long. Instead, the best hairstyles for fine hair are blunt cuts, with hair cut straight across.
