Hair feeling fine? Not not the good kind of fine. More like the kind of "fine" you reply with when your bf asks what you make of him missing date night to go out with his mates yet again. *sigh* AKA....the kind of fine which is completely not fine.  

Fine and thinning hair, in both men and women, is common. With age, our hair naturally loses a bunch of the body it was blessed with during our teens. However, hair that suddenly becomes fine and lifeless can be stressful. Know what stress leads to? Even thinner hair. Before you implode, rest assured, there are ways to remedy this situation. While we don't have any doctors on staff at Le Beauty, we do have a well-educated team of beauty pro's with a few tricks up our sleeve to make your fine hair appear bigger and better. Shall we continue?

HOW TO STYLE FINE / THIN HAIR 


 

TOUSLED WAVES:

Popularised by surfer chicks, Victoria's Secret Models and many top celebs, the tousled wave is a great look to add a little life to limp locks.

You might have looked at this style and thought it was better left to thick-haired chicks. Think again! To recreate this look simply create large waves, then comb them out lightly to create the illusion of fullness. We recommend using ghd's Wave Wand for the perfect loose curls you crave!

Pro Tip: Lock those waves in with a loose hold spray, for flexible all-day wear! 


GLAM VOLUME BLOWOUT 

Ever since the term was coined, blowouts have been synonymous with volume. Thin fine hair always looks lifted after being treated to a proper blowout. No need to hit the salon for this volume-boosting style! Get a salon-quality blow-dry without leaving your home. Bouncy locks are easy to style yourself when you’ve got the right tools to hand. Start by creating height at the crown of your hair using a large-barrel round brush, beginning as close to the roots as possible.

The best tool for the task? We recommend the ghd Air Professional Hair Dryer!

Pro Tip: Apply ghd heat protect spray to your tresses before blow-drying to prevent heat damage!



CURLY LOOSE BUN: 

A romantic style with the power to pump up thin hair, we love this loose curly look! Adding texture is a great way to build body in fine hair. Choose your desired style of curl, and sweep the hair into a laidback bun. Complete the look by loosening a few pieces at the front of your face for a gorgeous framing effect.

Pro Tip: Create plenty of movement by using the ghd Platinum Plus Styler, gently pulling it through sections of the hair to form curls.
