Choosing the right hairstyles for thin curly hair is crucial. To make your locks look full and bouncy you need to put some effort into styling. Fear not. We’ve gathered 20 inspiring pictures that show everything is possible with skillful hands, a good product and a strong desire to feel beautiful. Find out how to manage your fine and thin curly hair!
Short and medium cuts are best for this challenging hair type. To add fullness to thin natural curly or wavy hair stylists usually cut a lot of layers all over or just in the front (bangs). Different types of highlights work great, as well as defining low-density curls with a wand. A fatal mistake will be overusing thick creamy and oily hair products, as well as hair gels. Also, avoid straightening curls as your locks will look even flatter. A selection of cute hairstyles below will shed more light on the topic.
