The best hairstyles for fine hair
Not all hairstyles are suited to fine hair-types. In fact, some styles such as super-long hair or hair without layers can worsen the problem. Here are some styles that work well with fine hair, be it long or short…

A half-up half-down style with a backcombed crown is a great option whilst a high, uber straight ponytail immediately opens up the face.
