Modern Short Hairstyles for Fine Hair

For those who don’t know me, my name is Julia and I am a professional stylist. I work at a high-end salon and have been in the industry for more than 10 years. Throughout my career, I’ve seen all kinds of clients with different hair types — including thinning ones. So it’s no surprise that many of my clients with fine hair come to me looking for ways to make their locks appear fuller and thicker. In this post, we’ll discuss some popular modern short hairstyles for thin hair that can help you achieve that goal.


  • A short crop is a great way to make your fine hair look thicker.
  • Use a razor or clippers to get the right length for your face. You can play with the length of your crop to give it more shape—a shorter crop is more casual and youthful, while longer crops are sexier and more feminine.
  • Try experimenting with different lengths! If you’re not sure what style will suit you best, it might be worth talking things through with a stylist first before attempting anything drastic on your own.


The undercut is a versatile hairstyle that can be worn by both men and women, depending on the length of the top. For example, a high undercut has most or all of the hair on top cut off in a straight line at an angle, while a low undercut has most or all of the hair on top cut off in a straight line parallel to your jawline. If you’re not sure what works best for you, we recommend trying an asymmetrical cut first (see below).

The sides are usually short—usually about 1-2 inches long with some texture added to give it more volume. The length can vary from person to person; just make sure it’s short enough so that it doesn’t stick out from underneath the longer pieces when you pull them back into place!


A pixie cut is a short haircut that usually ranges from just above the ears to slightly below the chin. If it’s shorter than this, it may be considered a bob instead of a pixie. The style is great for fine hair because it helps to mask the look of fine hair by keeping length off the face and neck. This can give you more options when styling your hair if you have fine or thinning locks because you won’t have as much weight on your head making styling difficult!


  • Boyish
  • Short hair with side swept bangs
  • Hair is cut in a straight line and layered to add volume on top of the head. The layers are cut in different directions to create an asymmetrical look. The sides can be kept wide or tapered at the front, depending on your personal preference and style goals. Your hair color should be any color, but if you want to try something new, consider using henna or pigments like black and white stripes as accents!

Your hair may be thin, but you can make it look thicker.

The great news is that there are many hairstyles for fine hair. Unfortunately, some of them are better than others. For example, if you want to try a new style but aren’t sure how it will look on your hair type, ask your stylist to show you how the style would look with different textures and lengths of hair before committing to the cut.

Also keep in mind that not all styles are created equal. Some require more maintenance than others; some will cost more or less money; and some require additional styling products like hairspray or mousses (which can get expensive).
