These hairstyle ideas are perfect for anyone with short, fine hair

Fine hair can be rather tricky to style. If you use much product, it becomes instantly greasy and impossibly tangled, but if you use too little, the hair is slippery and will lose its shape in seconds.

Luckily, this summer was the season of the bob hair cut, which was a godsend for those with fine hair. Tactical layers and clever cutting techniques gave rise to styles such as the paper cut bob, to the A-line biob, to the textured bob, all of which provided an easy way to keep hair on trend without having to style it very much at home (the best bobs are styled at the cutting stage, meaning styling and maintenance is minimal).

However, a few months after the initial chop and you’ll no doubt be feeling the need to switch it up a bit. Only, you’ve made the job of DIY styling even trickier by giving yourself less hair to work with. There’s no chance of achieving a top knot and this season’s hottest hairstyle, bubble braids, is next to impossible with short hair.

Luckily, all is not lost. Far from it, actually, thanks to a number of clever styling hacks and helpful hair accessories that promise to deliver seriously covetable and on trend styles that promise to stay in place all day long, even on the shortest and finest of hair.

From dainty knots to create a long-wearing half-up do, to volume-boosting headbands and blow-dry techniques that will add texture and movement, here are our very favourite hairstyles perfect for short, fine hair that are easy to recreate at home…
