Thinning hair also looks great when cut into a long bob with subtle layers and sideswept bangs. Stylists recommend it for all hair textures, but it looks best when straightened and sleek. Any cut that falls to the shoulders or higher is flattering to thin hair, especially if cut with a blunt edge on the ends. The blunt ends create the illusion of thickness when the hair length is short or mid length.

Stylists also recommend the classic pixie cut for thinning hair as it hides any appearance of thinness. It is a polished style with little need for styling tools or products that can damage hair and make it look thinner than it is. Another low maintenance cut is the a-line bob, which you can wear naturally and is a flattering cut for most face shapes. This cut looks good with or without bangs, depending on face shape and a stylist's recommendation. As of 2015, the a-line and long bob cuts are two of the bigger trends in women's hair because they flatter most textures, face shapes and thickness.
