Short Hairstyles for Fine Hair
If you’ve got fine hair, each individual strand is relatively small in diameter. This probably means your hair has a silky smooth texture, but it can also leave you with hair that might have trouble holding a curl, and can be prone to looking limp and lifeless. If you like wearing your fine hair on the shorter side, there are tons of options for pixies and bobs that will showcase the silky strands you’ve got and make them look bouncy and vibrant. We’ve gathered some of our favorite short haircuts for fine hair to help you make the most of your finely textured mane.
1. Textured Bob
If you want your fine hair to look pumped up and voluminous, look for a bob haircut that creates shape without sacrificing large amounts of your hair. With long bangs and lots of texturizing, this bob gives you a bouncy style without taking away too much of your hair.
2. Feminine Pixie
Michelle Williams’ ultra popular pixie is the perfect super short cut for women with fine hair. Longer pieces of hair in the top layers let you sweep hair over to the side, creating a sleek silhouette that can look too puffy or boxy with thick or coarse strands.
3. Lob with Center Parted Bangs
Center parted bangs are great for fine hair, as they don’t really take volume away from the body of your haircut. These hybrid bangs can be used to frame the face but also tuck nicely away on days when you’d like to wear your hair in an up or half-up style.
4. Finger Waves Bob
Finger waves are a great way to add softness and texture to a bob haircut that has little to no layering. If your hair is too short to throw into a classic updo or too fine to hold big, bouncy curls, finger waves are the perfect alternative for a special occasion.
5. A-Line Bob with soft highlights
This blunt A-line cut is super classic and looks great on both fine and thick hair. The highlights add a fuller look to the hair.
6. Soft Asymmetrical Lob
Want to add interest to your fine hair without using a ton of layering? The slight asymmetry in this style creates visual appeal, but still makes for a manageable haircut on busier days.
7. Simple Blunt Bob
This simple blunt bob is an easy haircut that has a lot going for it. Your fine hair will be showcased to maximum effect in a hairstyle that’s easy to style and maintain. Landing just below the chin, this style is especially flattering on women with heart shaped faces.
8. Short Wispy Bob
With light layers and wispy texture that frames the eyes, this short bob will prevent your fine hair from hanging limply around your face. If your fine hair is very dense, you can even try this style with an undercut to help eliminate some bulky hair at the back of your neck.
9. Long Layers Bob
If you’ve got hair that’s fine but dense, layers can help to add shape and definition to your look. The long layers in this bob strike the perfect balance, creating a structured look that’s got lots of life and bounce.
10. A-Line Bob
This A-line bob has some layering, but the overall look is smooth and textured as opposed to choppy or shaggy. The longer pieces at the front of this style help to draw the eye forward and create an illusion of added lightness in the subtle layers at the back.
11. Swept Back Pixie
Want your fine hair to look edgy but sophisticated? This swept back pixie perfectly marries the two, giving you a gravity defying look that can be tough to pull off with thicker, heavier hair.
12. Soft Waves Bob
If your fine hair has wavy or curly texture, too many layers can make your natural style look awkward. We love how this bob features enough soft layering to add shape and definition without destroying your natural wave.
13. Soft Sophisticated Pixie
Anne Hathaway’s soft and sophisticated pixie is a modern classic, and a good choice for women with varying hair textures.
14. Deep Side Part Bob
A deep side part helps to create a dramatic sweep across the eye, and can also make your fine hair look more voluminous. This style looks great on women with long, thin faces, and creates the illusion of a fuller face.
15. Razor Texture Blunt Bob
This bob is mostly cut to one length, while the very outer layers have been cut shorter using a razor technique. If you like the look of edgy, choppy textures but don’t want to lose too much of your fine hair in the process, this genius style brings you the best of both worlds.
16. Softly Parted Bangs Bob
This gorgeous bob exudes softness and femininity, making the most of face framing bangs that are parted just slightly off of center. Choose this bob style for your fine hair if you’re looking for a shorter haircut that’s chic but low maintenance.
17. Ultra Short Pixie
This androgynous haircut is so short it’s almost a buzz cut, but leaves hair on top slightly longer than the closely shaved sides. If you’re looking for a low maintenance way to wear your fine hair that will still draw tons of attention, this ultra daring style could be for you.
18. Blunt Bob with Wispy Bangs
Finely textured hair is perfect for wispy bangs, and lends a sense of lightness to a fringe that’s not trying to completely cover your entire forehead. You can pair these bangs with just about any bob haircut, but we especially like the contrast they provide against a blunt bob.
19. Long Blunt Bob
Keeping it super simple, this long bob looks incredibly chic all cut to the same length. Blunt cuts tend to look thicker at the bottom if you’ve got coarsely textured hair, but they’re the perfect way to make your fine hair look chic and sleek.
20. Modern Twiggy Bob
Short, sleek and simple, this bob haircut puts modern touches on Twiggy’s iconic hairstyle. Fine hair is ideal for recreating the delicate texture of this style.
21. Soft Textured Lob
The long layers in this lob make fine hair look voluminous and bouncy, but won’t leave too much of your hair on the salon floor.
