Lena asks:
I am 27 year old female with genetically thin and thinning hair. What haircut can I pull off, aside from a long layered bob, which all stylists seem to want to give me? I would like something fun and edgy. My hair is very straight.

A layered bob does nothing for fine hair Ė in fact, cutting into the weight of the hair can often leave it looking thinner Ė so Iím surprised that so many stylists have recommended this style. Instead, a bob with a blunt razor sharp edge that sits an inch below your jawline would appear far denser. As a general rule, the thinner the hair, the shorter and blunter the bob should be cut. A blunt, single length bob is also far more edgy and stylish than a layered one; so many celebrities are wearing their hair in this style too. If youíre intent on steering away from a bob though, a long pixie cut can add density and fullness to thin hair, plus itís a fun style that can be adapted to suit your face shape. If you prefer a softer, more feminine looking pixie cut, keep the hair around the hairline and ears longer. If you prefer a longer look then perhaps consider trying out extensions? A professional hairdresser who is experienced in extensions, or a hair loss specialist, such as the Northern Hair Loss Clinic will be able to advise on which type of extensions can give your hair extra volume and density, as well as length, but without weighing down your naturally fine locks.
