Top 13 Voluminous Haircuts for Short, Medium, and Long Hair

Layers, asymmetry, bangs, tapered ends, coloring techniques — all these can give your thin hair the perfect volume you desire. However, it’s not in your best interest to get a haircut with too many layers. If your hair is way too thin, it will look dull. These tricks do work as well on long hair because it is heavier. However, even ladies with long locks can find ways to make their hair more voluminous.

Hair Care Tips to Keep Thin Hair Voluminous

As a rule, all voluminous haircuts require everyday styling. Few of them are low-maintenance. However, there are tricks that can help you keep that additional volume, especially on thin hair.

  • Keep in mind that frequent washing makes the hair get oily faster.
  • Dry shampoo will refresh your hair between washes.
  • Don’t use shampoos and conditioners that claim to add volume, they are too ‘heavy’ for thin hair. Better stick to products for thin hair.
  • Don’t rub your hair when you towel dry your hair. Better still, give them time to dry on their own.
  • Apply styling products when your hair is completely dry.
  • Use hair spray to shape and maintain your voluminous hairstyle.
