These are Officially the 3 Best Bob Hairstyles for Fine Hair

A choppy bob can instantly boost the appearance of hair thickness and volume. Below are the best bob hair cuts for fine hair…

While we’re a big fan of all bob hairstyles, if you’ve got fine hair, it can feel nerve-racking to cut off your lengths, especially if you’re worried about losing hair and shedding. But a short and choppy bob is one of the best hairstyles for fine hair – a blunt end can really help to thicken up your hair texture, resulting in healthier, thicker-looking locks.

But with so many different bobs out there, it can be confusing to know which is the right cut for you. Do you go for a collarbone bob, a textured preppy bob or maybe a chic French lob? Plus, how do you go about styling a bob for fine hair?

Well, don’t worry – if you’re wondering which bob is best for fine hair, you’ve come to the right place. Below, four experts share their favourite bob hairstyles for fine hair and the styling tips you need to know…

The three best bobs for fine hair

The Italian bob

“Chunky ended and neck grazing, the Italian bob is long enough to tie up yet short enough to turn heads,” says Sean Paul Nother, co-founder at The Hair Bros. “The Italian bob can be thrown into any parting with equal effect and to gain the second-day volume we all love.”

For an instant boost of volume, leave your hair to air-dry naturally, letting your natural texture give it a heavy, weighty feel.

The power bob

With a razor sharp edge, the power bob is great for those who want to fake fullness. “A blunt and strong power bob will instantly you the appearance of thicker hair,” says celebrity hair stylist Patrick Wilson.

“If you want to wear it super sleek and straight all the time, make sure you invest in a quality styler and heat protector that won’t compromise the condition of your hair.”

The box bob

“The box bob – an iteration of the classic bob style – works wonderfully for fine hair, as it can add texture and fullness to hair that can otherwise look flat by reducing the weight of the hair,” explains Nicole Petty, hair expert at Milk + Blush.

“Ask your hairdresser for a box bob – short and sharp but super-flattering,” says hairstylist Syd Hayes. “The blunt cut makes hair look fuller and thicker, which is exactly what you want for a shorter haircut.”

How to style a bob for fine hair

“When it comes to styling a bob, you don’t want your hair to sit flat,” explains Hayes. “Add some grit and volume with the Hair By Sam McKnight Cool Girl Super Lift Root Boost to prep the hair, blow-drying it in for full effect.

“Then I like to create added lift and volume using the BaByliss Hydro-Fusion 4-in-1 Hair Dryer Brush, focusing on the crown of the head for lift,” says Hayes.

“A diffuser can be your best friend for a curly bob; if you want to try something different, the BaByliss Hydro Fusion Hair Dryer is perfect for this.”
