How To Make Fine Hair Look Fuller

Fine hair can sometimes feel like a challenge, but with the right techniques and products, you can achieve a fuller look with greater volume. Here’s our comprehensive guide to help you make the most of your fine hair.


  1. Layered Styles: Layers can add movement and volume to fine hair. Opt for long layers that frame your face and create a fuller appearance. Discuss with your stylist about the best type of layers for your hair length and face shape.
  2. Blunt Cuts: A blunt cut, especially at the ends, can make your hair look thicker and more substantial. This style works particularly well for medium to short hair lengths, adding a sleek look without wispy ends.
  3. Shorter Lengths: Shorter hairstyles, such as bobs or pixie cuts, can make fine hair appear more dense. These cuts remove the weight that can pull hair down, so it’s worth considering a textured bob or a choppy pixie cut to add dimension and lift to your style.


  1. Volumising Shampoo and Conditioner: Look for products specifically designed to add volume to fine hair. These products are often lighter and help to lift the roots. Ingredients like biotin, collagen and protein can strengthen and plump up each strand, creating a fuller look.
  2. Styling Products: Use mousse, root-lifting sprays or texturising products to add body.
  3. Tips for Application: Focus volumising products at the roots where you want the most lift. Avoid applying too much product to the ends to prevent them from becoming weighed down. Use a light hand and build up the product gradually to avoid a heavy, sticky feel.
  4. Use Magic Hair Hair Fibres : Our all-natural cotton hair fibre spray will significantly improve the fullness of your thin hair, particularly closer to the scalp. Simply spray on and you’re good to go! It won’t run, contains no additives or chemicals and looks completely natural.


  1. Upside-Down Blow-Drying: Flip your head upside down while blow-drying to lift the roots and create volume. Use a medium heat setting to avoid damaging your fine hair. This technique helps to naturally lift the roots away from the scalp, giving an immediate boost to volume.
  2. Round Brush: For straight hair, use a round brush to add volume and shape. Start at the roots and pull the brush upwards and outwards while directing the heat from your blow dryer at the roots. A ceramic or vented round brush can help distribute heat more evenly and create smoother results.


  1. Highlights and Lowlights: Adding highlights and lowlights can create the illusion of depth and volume. These techniques work by creating contrast and shadow, making hair look fuller. Highlights around the face can also brighten your complexion and draw attention to your features.
  2. Balayage: This hand-painted highlighting technique adds a dimension that creates a soft, sun-kissed effect that can make fine hair look more dynamic and textured.
  3. Colour Placement: Place highlights around your face and throughout the top layers of your hair to enhance volume and movement. A mix of light and dark shades can create the appearance of thicker, multi-dimensional hair.


  1. Regular Washing: Keep your scalp clean and free from buildup by washing your hair regularly. Use a clarifying shampoo once a week to remove any product residue. A clean scalp promotes healthy hair growth and can prevent hair from looking limp and greasy.
  2. Conditioning: Use a lightweight conditioner to avoid weighing down your hair. Focus on the ends rather than the roots. Look for conditioners with volumising properties or those designed for fine hair, which typically have a lighter formula.
  3. Gentle Handling: Be gentle when brushing and styling your hair to prevent breakage. Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle wet hair, starting from the ends and working your way up to avoid pulling and breaking hair.
  4. Avoid Heavy Products: Steer clear of heavy oils and thick conditioners that can make fine hair look flat and greasy. Instead, opt for lightweight serums or leave-in conditioners that provide hydration without the weight.
  5. Healthy Scalp Care: A healthy scalp is the foundation for healthy hair. Regularly exfoliate your scalp to remove dead skin cells and promote circulation. Consider using a scalp massager or brush to stimulate blood flow and encourage hair growth.
