While thin hair is known to have its own problems, the one thing that we absolutely believe is that curls of any sort help them look more voluminous. Which is why this twisted middle part front with soft curls is one of the safest bet when it comes to hairstyles for thin hair. The twisted middle part front absolutely covers for scanty hair on the crown, while the soft curls just make your hair look heavier and bouncier as a whole. Adding any sort of floral accessory like fresh baby’s breath hairpiece on top can make this hairstyle look one of kind.

While some may think that putting thin hair into braids would not be a very smart move, we’d say reconsider what you can do to make the braid look fuller and dramatic. By covering the braid with flowers all around you can make the braid look traditional for the occasion as well as cover the flaws and hide the volume of your hair. The twisted and pulled back hair on the crown make for a smart move to give your face a definition while making the hairstyle look authentically Indian from the front as well.

Wet look slick back hairstyle


The wet look hairstyle is a rage currently in Bollywood as well as Hollywood. However, the reason this is on our list of hairstyles for thin hair is rather simple.

However thick or thin one’s hair might be, this hairstyle is known to make it look flatter and less voluminous. Another reason why we might call this one a win-win is that it absolutely does not require any accessories or jewellery to look gorgeous.
