More women are experimenting with shaving their heads or keeping closely-cropped locks. The look has a high-fashion vibe to it and is stunning on those who have a strong bone structure. This is also an excellent option for someone who wants to start fresh after years of treating their hair with chemical products.

While some women choose to rock the shaved look all the time, others shake things up with a wig. A lace-front wig, like this one from EvaWigs, creates a natural look that allows the wearer versatility in styling.

The lob, or the long bob, is a great look for women with thin hair. This adds a bit of length without allowing the hair to get scraggly, creating the illusion of thickness. The blunt lob is edgy and bold, whereas the wavy lob is a little more relaxed and adds texture.

The best part about the lob look is that it is relatively low maintenance. For women who don’t have a lot of time in the morning, using a flat iron or texturizing spray can create a simple style within minutes.

Deep Side Part

The deep side part is a quick trick for those with a high forehead and thin hair. With the deep side part, you create the part line about two inches from the center of your head. Flip the hair over your head, against the grain. This look creates volume and can frame the face nicely.

It might take some practice and product to get the deep side part to stick, as you’re working against your hair’s natural growth pattern. Try a few looks, and don’t forget to stock up on bobby pins.

Faux-Hawk Pixie

The faux-hawk pixie is an edgy, rebellious look that adds texture to short hair. With this look, your pixie cut should be a little longer on the top and faded on the sides. Using putty or pomade, you pull the top strands upward and inward to create height.

While this look works well with short and thin hair, getting it means committing to styling it each day. You’ll need time, a hairdryer, and some great products to make the look work.

Sculpted Pompadour

The pompadour is similar to the faux-hawk pixie but more sculpted. It’s also a great, high-fashion look to use when your shorter pixie cut is growing out. The pompadour is like a short bouffant, adding height to your hair.

If the sculpted pompadour is a little too 1980s for you, loosen it up a bit with a relaxed, brushed back look. With this style, you still get the height and volume, but it isn’t as polished and product-heavy.

Shaggy Layers

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that layers are just for people with thick hair that want to thin it out. Texturized layers can also create volume in thin hair and make it easier to style. Opting for shaggy layers over more straight cut options is the key to making this style work.

Shaggy layers also frame the face nicely and can be paired with side bangs if you have a high forehead. For some added volume, don’t be afraid to add some Farrah Fawcett inspired flips.

If you have thin hair, try out a few different looks and see what works for you. Look up celebrities with similar face shapes to get a better idea of how one of these everyday hairstyles will work with your bone structure.
