When you are in your 40s, it is likely that your hair will begin to thin out, naturally. Luckily, there are hairstyles, haircuts, and even lengths which can easily change your thin, fine hair into one which has the illusion of volume and thickness. Commonly, hair which is around the shoulders tend to appear much thicker than is longer hair.
Bobs are surely a great choice for flattering look, which is also easy to maintain and achieve with little or even no maintenance. Moreover, bobs can be cut with blunt or layers.
For those who have fine hair, bobs can be the best choice when the hair is blunt cut. Blunt ends will create the illusion of thick hair. Layers can bring in volume as well in certain hair textures, yet if the ends have been tapered, the hair will look way thinner.
In order to achieve maximum thickness, you should keep the blunt-cut bob as your shoulder grazing hairstyle or even one inch above.
With hair below your shoulders, you can go for long layers. Just make sure that you keep the layers random as well as throughout, be careful not to get short layers or lots of layerings since both can make your hair appear thinner.
This will allow you to keep your hair flowing at a medium-length without the need to cut it short in order to create the impression of volume and thickness.
Creating waves is also another best way to create volume instantly, and thus make the hair appear thicker. Waves, or the large curls, which are created with curling iron or hot rollers can instantly plump up your hair.
