Fine hair has a beautiful, silky delicacy to it, but, sometimes, that gentle brush of softness doesn't really reflect the sass that drives your personality. It's time for a swingy, confident cut that matches your persona. Keeping fine hair short gives it the volume and body that complements a bubbly style, but it doesn't have to be boring. Try one of these high-style haircuts that get your look and your attitude on the same page.


Crops are daring. They're also sexy, simple and perfect for fine hair that needs some texture -- but, mostly, they're daring. Your face and neck get so much attention with this cut that you better bring some sass to pull this one off. Hair is less than two inches all around, but you can angle and part your hair however you like. Talk to your stylist about how to bring out your bones with a crop.


Bobs have a reputation for being a classic haircut. A woman like you needs a little more than that! The traditional bob is a blunt cut that falls between the jawline and the collarbone. Sass yours up with razored ends that give you feathery, sexy texture where there'd normally be a blunt edge. The texture gives your geometric cut a playful swing that matches your 'tude.


Shags are unbelievably alluring. These layered cuts are perfect for fine hair, because you and your stylist can customize the look as you go. Want layers that show off skyscraper cheekbones? Go for it! Need to soften a square jaw? You can do that! Layers start and fall anywhere from the temples to shoulders. Fine hair flourishes with all the dead weight chopped off. Say hello to tons of volume!


Wedges may just be the ultimate in creative, confident cuts for fine hair. Consider the bob -- it's got a lot going for it. Now elevate the back for a stylized geometric silhouette that lengthens as it moves toward your face. Not only does fine hair get lift and swing, the profile on this cut is stunning. Get even bolder with asymmetry. Long pieces over the eye or at the ears show your personality and style to perfection.


Bangs can jazz up the simplest haircuts. If you know you need a little kick in your style, but you just aren't ready to go all-out with haircut craziness, chop in some bangs. Cut mysterious, side-swept bangs to show you're ready for trouble or try a funky super-short style that sails above the eyebrows. Feathered bangs that you wear center-parted as tendrils are pretty and sassy, too.
