As a fine-haired gal, getting a short-length cut is not only trendy, but also helps give your limp, lifeless hair an instant boost. If you're looking for a change, you get to kill two birds with one stone, and there are a few different short haircuts in particular you're sure to love. It takes a bold, confident personality to rock a short style but, hey, you've got that covered.


The pixie cut is one of the most often seen short cuts. A pixie cut frames your face and gives you lots of volume on top -- which can be important for thin or fine hair -- with a really tapered, shaped back. You have a lot of versatility with this style too because you can get it cut longer on top and even with a fringe that sweeps across your forehead, or go quite short. It's all up to you honey, 'cause either way you'll rock it.


If you're bold and daring you'll look ultra-chic in a buzzed cut. You can either go all the way as short as you can military-style, or only buzz a section on your head. Have one side of your head buzzed and the rest kept longer, just above your shoulders. Style your hair flipped over to the side opposite the buzzed side for a really trendy, totally chic style. Either way you rock it, a buzzed cut leaves you with super short hair, so you don't notice the fineness of it.


A bob is one of the most timeless, classic styles. You can make it retro-inspired or modern looking; either way you go about it, a bob is always a trendy short cut and it can work on all different face shapes. Go for a shoulder-length layered bob that's shorter at the back and longer at the sides. This bob style instantly boosts your limp locks, giving them life, so your hair doesn't appear as fine.


An asymmetrical cut is one of the edgiest, most sophisticated styles. Long-haired gals can't compete with this. It's typically worn with a far side part, with the fringe angling across your face. The cut is sharply angled at the front and tapered at the back. The more layers you have in your short cut, the more volume you get in your hair. Layers take weight out of your hair, so you get as much boost and body as possible. It's even funner when you've got lots of bright, multicolor highlights in your hair.
