If you like short, extremely easy-care hair, you can try a pixie cut with super short layers. This fits best with an oval face with balanced facial features and great skin. The layers are thin and held with a light styling gel. Hair drying is reduced to a minimum, which prevents this sensitive hair type from drying out. Finally define the layers with a light styling wax.

The nice thing about this hairstyle is that it doesn’t need volume. Since fine hair tends to fall anyway, a flat-lying style is a low-maintenance option for busy people who don’t have time for hairstyle touch-ups. However, if you want to increase the volume, you can use a firmer styling gel and a round brush when blow-drying.

The best long hairstyles for fine, layered hair keep the layers to an absolute minimum: too many make the style look lean and fall flat. Instead, only layer the last few centimeters in length. An exception is the creation of shorter, face-framing layers only in the front. These layers give longer hairstyles a better shape and prevent them from pulling the face down.
