If you have fine, thin hair, it may seem like you’re in for a lifetime of non-existent volume and barely-there body. But full, thick-looking hair isn’t out of the question. With the right haircut, anything is possible. Below are the best chops, trims and styles that can transform your hair from thin to luscious in a single salon visit.

The Bob Haircut

As it turns out, the trendiest cut in town just happens to be perfect for those with feather-thin hair. Try a blunt bob (or lob, if you don’t want it too short) that’s slightly longer in the front. This allows for versatile styling and gives your hair some fullness and dimension. To keep your bob from falling flat, enlist the help of some volumizing products like root-lifters and thickening sprays. We recommend the Garnier Fructis Style Mega Full Thickening Lotion.

The Happy Medium Haircut

Medium-length hair that hangs at or just below your shoulders is a great cut for faking a fuller look, especially if your thin hair is wavy or curly. Ask your stylist to throw in some long layers to add a little bounce, but make sure they’re blunt. Most importantly, veer away from razors and texturizing shears that can take away much needed weight and fullness from hair. To create a salon-worthy look at home, spritz the OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray onto your hair and lightly scrunch for a perfectly undone look.

The Flowing Boho Haircut

For a long style that has movement, keep the layers designated to the front of the head, where they’ll frame your face and provide more body. The best part is this hairstyle is super low-maintenance and works with both a side part and a middle part. Make sure you keep your hair healthy, strong and prevent breakage between salon visits by using a nourishing heat protectant like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Length No-Haircut Cream.
