Some ways to style fine hair for older women include a classic bob cut, long bangs, a long bob cut or a shoulder-length cut. Volume-adding products are essential for styling fine hair to give it the appearance of body.
A bob is a flattering cut for fine hair because it gives hair the appearance of lightness. Depending on face shape and texture, classic bobs are cut as short as the ears or to just past the chin. Shorter layers in the back give the hair lift, body and movement.
Another option for fine hair that flatters an older woman is a long bob that falls at or just above the shoulders. Subtle layers are added to this cut to keep the hair from being weighed down. This cut is flattering for all face shapes and hair textures and is easy to style. Regardless of cut, adding long bangs to a style frames the face and creates a youthful look. Side-swept bangs soften or hide the appearance of wrinkles.
Products that add volume keep fine hair from laying flat against the skull. Another styling idea for adding volume is blow-drying the roots of the hair while lifting sections up. The heat sets hair in a lifted position and is maintained with a light product.
