Fine and thin hair can be both a blessing and a curse when you think about it. On one side of the scales, fine and thin hair takes almost no time at all to get ready. Blow-drying is quicker, even styling is quicker, mostly because there is less of it. There are fewer hairs to contend with when working your magic with your hairstyle. As well as being good for things such as speed of readiness, fine hair is also a great burden. It is a well-known fact that fine and thin hair often doesn’t stay in intricate updos, like thicker and bulkier hair does. Also, trying to add volume to flyaway and fine hair often takes a serious amount of heated stylings, such as heated rollers, as well as backcombing, using dry shampoo, and also firm hold hairspray. It is due to that reason that many women opt to go for the chopper when they have shorter hair, looking at cool and unique shorter styles.
These 40 Short hairstyles for fine hair 2019 should give you some great inspiration — use them to find new and unique styles to try on your own fine and flyaway hair.

2 – Amethyst Crystal Cute & Curly
Chin length is a flattering length for many women with many faces shapes, and when you opt for something A line in shape, it is generally much shorter at the back than it is at the front. This means that you get to keep some of the more flattering layers and length around your face, but still keeping things nice and simple at the back. If this is your first venture into the world of short hairstyles for fine hair 2019, something A-line and textured is most definitely a great place to start.

Adding a few sharp and jagged layers across the bottom of your short bob will help to add a bit of oomph, and this is a very neat trick to use at the back of your ‘do. The natural straw and honey tones of the blonde also help to add depth to this look, one that combines a cut and colour perfectly to thicken up fine hair.
4 – Silver Toned & Lovely
Silver and grey shades of hair are quite difficult to achieve if you don’t know what you’re doing to start with. You will usually need quite a few lightening and bleaching sessions beforehand, especially if you have naturally darker hair. You may also find that your silvery and grey efforts turn a little lilac and lavender when it’s dried. This is to be expected and can be worked with, but you are going to have a much finished result if you opt for a salon job.
5 – Icy Blonde Short Hairstyles for Fine Hair
When it comes to adding more volume to your hair, a good colour and cut is a great place to start, but things really do start in the shower. If you aren’t using the right products when you’re washing and drying your hair, you may find that they add greasy heaviness to the hair, rather than volume and oomph. Use products that are designed to be used on flyaway, thin and fine hair, and you’ll have much better results than with the wrong products entirely.
6 – Blonde on Top, Brown Undercut
If you want to add real depth to your hair, two-toned effects, like this blonde and brown combo, are great to work with. Darker shades have been used across the undercut, lighter shades left on top. It’s a little bit like contouring, but with your hair rather than your makeup.
7 – Raging Red & Undercut
Softer layers that curl around the face are very flattering on a number of face shapes, but once your’e out of the salon, you’ll need to know how to flick them under yourself to keep the textured style. Pixie cuts like this are suitable for almost every face shape, and is a lock that has been rocked by Hollywood beauty, Charlize Theron, as well as many others.
8 – Mermaid Flopped-Over Pixie
If you want a quick way to liven up your short styles for fine hair, how about changing up where the parting lies. If you usually rock a center parting, take things over to the side a little. You’ll see that it changes the entire look of your face, and this is even more so the case with bangs too, left wispy and side-swept.
9 – Razor Cut & Just Below Chin Length
The gradual incline on this A line look helps to add depth to it all, and the highlights bring about another dimension. When these things, along with short and choppy layers, work together, your look not only looks like it’s packed with volume, but also feels like it too. You’ll be waving your new, fuller-feelin’ locks around all over the place!
10 – Edgy & Styled Undercut
There are several things to take into account when you’re looking at an undercut, and this is a conversation you will most definitely need to have with your hairdresser before you commit. This look is gunky, edgy and modern, but does require more upkeep than other, softer short styles.
11 – Lilacs & Lavenders
When you’re picking shampoos, conditioners and other products that offer volume-adding properties to your locks, make sure you’re buying and using the ones that also have moisturising ingredients, as well as the volumising ones. The shampoos and conditioners that are designed for fine hair can often be more drying. You should overcompensate a little thing for this, perhaps spending one night a week giving your hair the intensive conditioning treatment it truly deserves.
12 – Brilliant Blonde Blended Bob
Although fine and very straight hair might seem like it has more negatives than positives, that’s not the case and looks like this one prove it.

Ask your stylist to give you a few tips so that you can style your hair at home.

Do you already have some sort of texture in your hair? You should work with that. If your hair is naturally wavy, for example, go with it, rather than trying to straighten it out with various heated styling tools and products. You’ll be surprised by how much easier life is when you go WITH what you already have, rather than going AGAINST.
14 – Molten Lava Space Buns

The bright colour choices are optional, of course, but we certainly love them.
15 – Modern Rose Gold Pixie Cut
The pixie look is perfect for really fine hair, because you don’t need a lot of hair in order to rock it. In fact, having lots of hair is actually a bad thing in the realms of pixie cuts. If you’ve got flyaway and thin hair and you haven’t tried the pixie or shorter cut in your life, it’s probably about time you had a chat with your hairstylist to see if you could work out the right kind of fit for you.
16 – Modern & Edgy Shaved Pixie
If you’re a fan of long hair, the short, pixie cut is one of the most daunting hair moves you can make.

17 – Razor Edged Romantic Bob Cut for Fine Hair
If you want volume at the roots, the worst thing you can do is apply your conditioner to the roots. It’s the ends of the hair you’ll want to focus on when it comes to conditioning treatments and fine locks.

Mousse is a hair product associated with big, frizzy hair and 80’s and 90’s perms, but that’s not all the hair product is good for. In fact, mousse is perfect for adding volume and boost to your hair when you’re suffering with a case of fine-hair-syndrome. Use a touch of it when your hair is still wet from the wash, and make sure you crunch in well. When you use a blowdryer and a large paddle or rounded brush to add shape, you will notice the difference. If you’re opting for a complicated look, something that needs a lot of volume, or something that requires a lot of holding in place, mousse is a great way to go about it.

Product buildup is your worst enemy when you have lifeless and fine hair, and to combat that, you should use a shampoo that offers clarifying properties regularly.

When you start styling, always start at the roots if you have fine hair. Use your blowdryer to dry the hair with it all upside down and hanging to start with. This will add as much oomph as possible to the roots, and this is even more so the case if you use the right kind of styling product too, such as a volume-adding mousse.
36 – Multi Styled Natural Balayage Blonde Bob

Looks like these can just as easily be worn straight and sleek as they can wavy and touseled. And, just as we’ve already mentioned, each of the looks takes just a few moments. If you wanted a more relaxed feel, simply add a touch of your favorite styling product, scrunch your hands, and perhaps finish off with a cool blast from your blowdryer.
38 – Natural Brunette Balayage & Flicked Bob
Short bob styles like this one would seem flat and lifeless if they were left flat. It’s the injection of curls and waves that often shape them, making them appear bigger and much more full of life.
