For as long as I can remember, I've had a love/hate relationship with my hair. As you know, it's fine and unruly by nature, so it literally took me years to find a style that works for me. Needless to say I'm a huge fan of the emerging no-extensions-trend, as I've been crushing on the thin hair of the likes of Nicole Richie and the Olsen twins since forever - so it's pretty great this seems to have a solid fan base now. Don't get me wrong, I like full lush hair styles, but the reality is that that doesn't come naturally to most of us West Europeans. And in the spirit of working with what you got, I lined up my 4 favourite ways to style fine hair - no special tools required!
The mini bun is one of my personal go-to hair styles (proof and proof). I personally like to keep my middle part when I create the bun because I have a pretty narrow-shaped face (this is an exception), but I'm currently really into the idea of a pulled back version, for a more slick effect. It's such a versatile hair style: when paired with a white tank and khaki bomber it's got an unquestionable streetwear/athleisure vibe going on, but when you add a chique dress and oversized earrings, it's super sophisticated!
I have slightly wavy hair (similar to the second girl above), but when I love a sleek middle part so much! It looks fresh and natural, especially when tucked behind your ears. Definitely something I'll be trying this Spring!
Considering the multitude of wet look-inspired beauties on the September (and NYC FW17!) runways (already talked about this here), the popularity of this short combed back hair style is not so surprising. It used to seem a bit daunting to try this out at home, but the casual version of Olivia Wilde (pictured above) seems pretty do-able, and I love the combo with a sexy blazer jacket and red lips so much!
This one's perfection for long fine hair! I think the most current way to wear a low ponytail is took your middle part. You can then mix things up by leaving out some casual strands in front, wrapping your ponytail with a strand of hair or a velvet ribbon (there's really no more versatile item out there).
