Take a styling product like mousse, hairspray or gel. Take a small amount of it on your hands and run them over your hair to spread it. Once you have covered the hair volume, crunch your hair with both your palms. Move fingers from scalp, and work upwards, like lifting hair from the roots. Now take a blow-dryer. Bend your head downwards to take all hair in front, over your face. Now blow-dry, with a diffuser attached to it. This styling method is sure to make fine hair look thicker. And don't opt for straightening, wavy hair is the best way to cover-up the thin hair look.

Haircuts and Styles
A hairstyle plays a very essential role in making fine thin hair look thicker. There are a number of cute hairstyles for thin hair from which you can opt for the one that suits your hair length and facial shape. Most of the hairstylists suggest to shorten the hair length if you have thin hair. Thin long bangs will give you a very unattractive look. Layered haircuts are one of the most preferred haircuts for thin hair. In case you have long hair and don't want to go beyond shoulder length while cutting off the hair, you can opt for shaggy haircuts, sleek crop haircut, or medium layered haircuts. Make sure your bangs are not of equal length. Cascading layers are also the best.

Make sure you follow the hair care regime. A best tip is to avoid brushing wet hair, when it is most prone to breakage. While the aforementioned tips are sure to help you, don't skip a visit to the Trichologist, he/she will help you to grow hair thicker and healthier.
