Try a bob with jagged edges

Layering fine hair is a great way to add style and volume. Try an adorable bob hair cut with lots of jagged edges and layers. Your hair should be no longer than chin length and add razor edges around your face. Keep your bangs long or no shorter than cheekbone length.

Use hair styling serum that is specially formulated for fine hair to add body and shine. Add a quarter sized amount of serum to your wet hair. Blow dry your hair with your head turned upside down. Roll your layers around a medium sized round brush and dry each section.

Tease the crown of your hair once it's dry and flip your head upside down. Rub a dime sized amount of hair gel in your palms and run your hands through your hair. Stand up and work through the teased portion of your hair with your fingers. Run your fingers through your tresses and apply a light misting of hairspray to your style.

Turn frizz into curls

Turn your frizzy hair into luscious curls with the right haircut, good products and a large barreled curling iron. One way to keep your frizz in check is a good haircut every six to eight weeks to eliminate dead ends and damaged pieces of hair.

Add long and medium length layers to your shoulder length hair. Keep bangs long but add layers. If your hair is especially frizzy and thick, ask your stylist to using thinning scissors to tame your volume and frizz.

Style your new do using curl enhancing styling gel. Add a quarter sized amount of styling gel to wet hair and allow to air dry. If you don't have time to air dry, add a diffuser to your hair dyer and scrunch and dry sections of hair. Lightly mist with hair misting gel and scrunch your ends and hair.

Use a large round brush when drying your hair

If you are experiencing a double whammy of having fine and frizzy hair you may believe that you are limited on how you can wear you hair. Achieve the look you want with a short to medium length layered cut.

Layering your hair will give your fine hair follicles body while the perfect styling product will get the frizz under control. Don't go any longer than shoulder length to maintain body and style. Include medium and long layers in your cut, including your bangs.

Style your hair using frizz reducing hair gel. Use a dime sized amount on wet hair. Blow dry using a large round brush. Wind your layers around the brush and dry your hair in sections. Remove the brush from each section by unrolling and pulling up and outward to create body and smooth frizz. Finish style with frizz control styling gel mist.
