When it comes to hair, size does matter! A voluminous mane is a sign of healthy hair and who doesn't want to work a little extra hard to get there. Thanks to everyday wear and tear, chemical treatments, and heated styling, our hair tends to lose its bounce, leaving it limp and thin. A good hair care routine makes for a great long-term plan. But that doesn't mean you should wait it out with lifeless, scraggly locks. There are multiple ways in which you can oomph up that volume. Wearing your hair in cuts and styles suited for thin hair actually gives the illusion of sporting a larger than life mane. While it may not be as dense as one would expect, it does appear to be. The transformation is pretty incredible, even if you've got extremely thin hair. Scroll down to see our picks on the best hairstyles for thin hair. Think really fine hair to thick horsetail, in just a few steps!

A short layered cut is one of the best ways to give your thin hair that extra boost of volume. Give it a touch of beachy waves, and you'll steal the spotlight.
- Step 1: Apply Livon Damage Protect Serum to the lengths of your hair and section it into three layers-bottom, centre, and top.
- Step 2: Start by sectioning the bottom layer into two equal halves. Take one half and begin creating waves with a curling wand. Make sure the waves face outwards, away from your face. Repeat on the opposite section, using the same method.
- Step 3: Continue the same with the middle and top sections too.
- Step 4: Centre-part your hair and run your fingers through it to open up the waves. This will also give your hair a messy, voluminous effect.
#PROtip: Feel free to add accessories such as a hairband or fancy clips to give this look a more formal and chic touch.

Everyone loves the go-to ponytail. However, it may not be all that fun to sport if you've got extremely thin hair. This voluminous ponytail instantly boosts limp hair-you won't believe how effortlessly it turns the once basic hairstyle around.
- StStep 1: If you've got slightly textured and naturally wavy locks, feel free to start straight away with the hairstyle. If not, then use a curling tong to give it a bit of a wavy touch.
- Step 2: Now, run your fingers through your hair and at the crown, section it into two parts (top and bottom). Clip the top aside for later.
- Step 3: Take the bottom section and lift it into a high ponytail, somewhere around the crown. Secure it with a hair-tie.
- Step 4: Take a small section from the top of your hair and backcomb it to give it a little volume. Now, pull the entire top section, along with the bottom ponytail into one big, high ponytail. Secure the two together with a hair-tie.
- Step 5: Tug on the ponytail a little to tighten and lift it. Run your fingers through the length of your hair to fluff up the ponytail and give it more volume.
- Step 6: Applyy Livon Shake & Spray Serum to the front of the hair and brush it down to neaten the smaller baby hair and the frizz.
