Many hairstyles cause fine hair to look thinner than it actually is, and can even weigh your hair down, eliminating body and volume. When choosing a hairstyle to flatter fine, straight hair, it is important to add elements of texture, such as layers, to make hair appear thicker and healthier.

The pixie cut is a very short hairstyle that is perfect for fine, straight hair. The pixie consists of short bangs cut in different lengths, with the rest of the hair cut very short in a choppy style.

Use a styling gel to mess your hair up slightly, as the pixie is known for it's tomboyish, messy look.
