Whether you are experiencing hair thinning that is related to hormonal changes or aging, or you've always had naturally thin or fine hair, it can be tricky finding a style that makes the most of what you have.


Super long hair may prove too severe for thin hair, it's true. And a flat, one-layer cut with a single-process hair color (especially if it's a dark shade) isn't going to do your locks justice. But, according to Celebrity Hair Stylist Adel Chabbi, owner of Adel Atelier Salon in New York City, there are two haircuts that work wonders on thin hair — and they're a lot trendier than you might think.

Best Haircuts For Thinning Hair

Even with insufficient hair thickness and density, it's totally possible to create an effortless, stylish look, Chabbi says — but the key to success lies in finding the perfect haircut for your hair type.


"A slightly angled bob with clean-cut layers that can create that extra OOMPH for a woman with thin hair doesn't grow as fast, is versatile, and is easy to manage," Chabbi says. "Also, a modern, long-layered shag cut works well for the woman who has long, thin hair because it adds texture for plenty of movement and body."


In addition to playing with texture, color is also your bestfriend, Chabbi reminds us. Go for a great haircut with plenty of movement, but don't forget to speak to a colorist about ways you can incorporate subtle highlights or bayalage into your hair to make it look worlds thicker.
