Products can help you achieve a healthy, bouncy look, but for consistently thick tresses, it's a good idea to call in a professional. Your hairstylist may be your Anne Sullivan ("The Miracle Worker," if you were wondering) when it comes to making your limp tresses look like a lion's mane. Talk to your stylist about a cut that could add more body to your hairstyle. Fine hair tends to fare better with cuts above the shoulder because the longer your hair gets, the more it tends to look flat and scraggly. The timeless bob (or any variation of this cut) is always a good option. Layered cuts are also great for adding volume, since they make your hair look considerably thicker. And if you have a few hours and some dineros to drop, adding some hair extensions can thicken your mane in a major way.
