17 Best Hairstyles for Thin Hair & Your Face Shape

Choosing the right cut for your thin or thinning hair can be a daunting and overwhelming task.

To be honest making any kind of change to your hair, big or small, can be nerve racking and make a person sweat with questions.

Do I cut it short?

Do I grow it long?

Should I layer it?

Will this cut look good with my face shape?

While we are all unique when it comes to our physical appearance, your face shape is one thing that you most definitely need to take in consideration when deciding on a cut that is best for you.

Unfortunately, not every face shape can carry every hairstyle.

Understanding what works best for you is the key to having good looking hair. Here are a few tips to help you decide which hair style is best for you based on your face shape.

A chin length bob with very light layers that fall around the nose and chin is a great option for you. Stray away from any hairstyle that are very short or longer than your collarbone. Instead shoot for something more like the photos below.

Hairstyles for Round faces 

The World is definitely round, but your cut shouldn't be!

A whispy lightly layered cut that falls below your chin is a great option for a round face because layered cuts will give your face more definition and structure.

But be careful to make sure you don't go with a look that has heavy layering. This will only make your hair look thinner and make your face look even rounder.

Light layers are key.

Hairstyles for heart shaped faces 

All you need is love... for your jawline!

When deciding on a cut for thin hair with a heart shaped face the goal is to emphasis the jawline and decrease the face at your forehead. Consider a short cut or either a shoulder or chin length cut with long bangs that sweep across to one side to help make your forehead appear smaller. Layers around your cheekbone can also add length to your face. Below are a few of my favorite cuts for a heart shaped face.
