7 Flattering Haircuts for Women with Thinning Hair

Although we may feel limited by our circumstances, that does not mean they need to define us. Hair is no different. Whether it’s a thinning dealt with from birth or the kind we get with age, the luxurious locks are not always feasible throughout life. While some of us have those thick strands blanketing our heads, not all of us have the luxury of flexible hair styles. Thicker hair has more options when it comes to cuts, shaping and hairstyles, but that doesn’t mean that thin hair is at a loss, so to speak.

Although men are more limited in their hair choices, that doesn’t mean they are helpless to their circumstances. Thinning hair is a universal problem so it’s only fair that men should have the same amount of options as women. Since men and women are not the same when it comes to most aspects of the body, it wouldn’t be fair to group hair together either. That is why we have compiled a list of seven flattering haircuts for women with thinning hair.

1. Bob


A jaw-level cut, the bob is an excellent choice for those with thin hair. Bobs are often versatile, dating back to the early 1900’s. For those 1920’s flappers, the bob was a new way to spark controversy and show off a little independence. Since then, the different styles of a bob have flourished and become a daily trend. Choppy, line, layered or flicked out – it doesn’t matter because bobs have taken the world by storm.

Although the bob sometimes works for thick hair, it’s a bit more difficult. Thin hair allows bob cuts to beautifully shape the face. Instead of thick hair puffing up around the face, thin hair gracefully lays on the side of the head for the bob cut, framing that already gorgeous face. Adding bangs to that bob has been a must for many who wear the hairstyle along with the newer version consisting of a shorter back and longer front cut.

2. Choppy


Thinning hair isn’t a problem for those with choppy hair. The fringe benefits of this haircut is a great way to mask thinning strands. Short or long, choppy cuts create a messy yet styled look for the wearer. Whether it is a styling or ‘just roll with it’ day, choppy cuts can work with our moods.

Hiding not only the thinning of hair strands but also the lack of styling initiative in the morning, choppy hair can give the girl the freedom to shake loose. Similar to other styles, choppy hair can be with or without bangs, depending on the preference of the person. If choppy is the way to try, but going all out isn’t the best option, try choppy bangs. Take a risk with a few front strands and leave the rest straight, and if that’s not what is preferred, the whole head is a good way to go as well. Don’t worry. It won’t look like you lost a fight with scissors.

3. Pixie Cut


Extremely low maintenance, pixie cuts are close to the noggin and not always easy to pull off. Although some can be shorter than others, pixie cuts can range slightly from close to the scalp to a little flare on the ends. Product can be used to style the hair, spiking or curling it while some prefer a natural hair flow.

Oddly enough the shorter the hair, the thicker it seems. A pixie cut is a wonderful haircut that adds volume by chopping off the hair and giving the illusion of thicker locks. Pixie cuts are also usually short on the sides and longer on the top.

4. Sleek and Long


If short hair is not your forte, go for a long cut. There’s no shame in wanting to keep the long hair flowing, and if long is the better way, try slicking it back into a ponytail. Adding some layers or bangs to those long locks can add some break up of a single length cut.

A longer haircut or even shoulder length is a wonderful way to stay true to your hair. Thinning hair is nothing to be ashamed of so why not wear it down, naturally flaring? Wear the thin hair loud and proud, showing off those beautiful strands.

5. Bias Cut


A sweeping side style, bias cuts are great for hiding a receding hairline. Thinning hair can be given a stylized look with a bias cut since the hair is worn forward and flared to the side. This cut falls over the forehead, giving the illusion of bangs and is sure to make hair look fuller.

Bias cuts are sure to make people stop and notice with it’s off kilter styling. It can be cut with a flowing elegance, small bangs or even a luxuriously layered style.

6. Curled


Long or short, curling is a great style for thinning hair. Although it’s not a haircut per se, that doesn’t mean that curled isn’t a great way to style that thinning hair. A cut between long and short is often best for curls, allowing the medium length to have texture and volume framing the face and chin.

Curled hair can give the face an elegant frame. The bouncing ringlets can be easily created and maintained with a little product, but the overall look of the curls is great to hide that thinning hair. Running hands through it can give it a more natural look as well.

7. Wild and Wavy


Similar to choppy but not to be confused with it, wild or wavy is another unkempt option. While wild can look like you just rolled out of bed in the morning, the character that comes from it is enough to make thin hair stand to attention. A wavy appearance gives thin hair the elegant swish while wild is a let loose kind of feel.

Less of a cut and more of a styling option, wild or wavy are two great ways to give thinning locks more texture. Instead of flat and thin, try messing up that mane. Remember, a little rebellion never hurt anyone.

As always adding hats or other great accessories can help liven those thin strands. If cutting the hair isn’t the way to go, styling in various forms can also help give the charm you’re looking for. Ponytails, partial up-dos or even extensions can create a more elaborate look.
