How to Make a Hair Poof With Fine, Thin Hair

By Mimi Abney

If you have fine, thin hair, a poof hairstyle is a secret styling tip to boost thin strands and give the appearance of thicker hair. While a front hair poof is reminiscent of the 1960s bouffant, you can give a modern twist to this retro hairstyle at home. Whether you are attending a special event or going on a hot date with the one you love, give your thin hair a little height and style with this regal hair style.

Wear a poof hairstyle to add sassy appeal to your thin, fine strands.

Step 1

Wash and condition your hair with a lightweight product formulated for fine hair. Towel dry hair.

Step 2

Spritz a texturizing product or volumizing mousse into your roots. Massage product into roots to help fatten thin strands. Comb hair with a wide-tooth comb to distribute product from roots to ends.

Step 3

Flip hair over and blow dry to add lift to strands. Once hair is 30 percent dry, flip hair over and continue to blow dry. Use a paddle brush to pull hair upward as you blow hair dry to fatten roots.

Step 4

Tease front section of hair with a rattail comb. Start at the forehead and tease with the comb until you reach the crown of your hair.

Step 5

Finger comb hair back into a poof shape. Gather the front teased section up with your hands. Turn the hair inward and clockwise into a twist shape. Secure the twist shape into the crown with 2 to 4 long hair pins.

Step 6

Curl the remaining hair below the poof with a medium-barreled curling iron. Using your fingers rake curls to create a soft wave. Spray hair with a long-hold hairspray to set the style.
