Hairstyles That Make Thin Hair Look Instantly Thicker

Adding layers to your hair creates the illusion of volume and thickness. Opt for shorter layers around the crown to add lift.

Layered Cut

A blunt bob haircut can make thin hair look fuller, especially if it's cut to chin-length or slightly shorter. This style adds density to the ends, giving the appearance of thicker hair.

Shorter hairstyles like a pixie cut can make thin hair look fuller because it removes weight from the hair, making it appear thicker and more voluminous.

Pixie Cut

Adding waves or curls to your hair can create the illusion of thickness. Use a curling iron or styling wand to add texture, then tousle the hair for a natural, voluminous look.

Textured Waves

Side swept bangs can add volume and dimension to thin hair by framing the face and adding fullness around the forehead area.

Side Swept Bangs

Pulling your hair up into a high ponytail or bun can create the appearance of thicker hair, especially if you tease the hair at the crown for added volume before securing it.

High Ponytail or Bun

Half-up hairstyles, such as a half-up bun or half-up ponytail, can add volume to thin hair while still allowing some of it to flow freely, creating a fuller look.
