Here’s my hair, freshly washed, no product and roughly blow dried. Colour is box dyed but close to my natural colour. It’s not particularly smooth and has a bit of a wave - not enough to be curly though.
I tend to swing from chin length bob, grow it to this, and then get bored and get it chopped. I don’t really like a fringe on me, although I’ve had a light side fringe in the past.
My hair is normal ish i.e I wash it every 2-3 days and the roots get greasy at 3 days.
I work in an office and need to be quite smart.
Please suggest how I might improve my style as it gets a bit shapeless at this stage and I’m getting fed up with it!

Dark, glossy, wavy hair is the jackpot!! Grow it longer and focus on its condition. Then get a barrel curler jobby and put nice loose waves through it a couple of times a week and shedloads of dry shampoo and you're good to go.

Thanks both, very nice if you to say trucking! Feels like it’s just hanging around my ears / face at the moment though!!

I definitely wouldn't grow it longer. It's quite fine looking OP and the top is very flat. More length will drag it down and barrel curlers aren't always something we feel like tackling....not on a day-to-day basis.

Yes it’s fine, but there’s a lot of it (if that isn’t a contradiction).
Medication for an auto immune disease has made it thinner and prone ti falling out , but it does regrow.

I think you'd benefit from layers and a fringe to add some thickness and shape OP.

I would avoid a bob with your face shape tbh and add fringe but you state you don’t like fringes

Photo is for fine hair and fuller face

@AjasLipstick, that is a great hairstyle, and I agree, would look good on the OP.

I’d be a bit scared the top pic may go mullety or like a ‘rachel’ cut on me? Do you think that’s a risk?

I think Ajas' hairstyle is high risk of looking a bit Joan Jett. I would go for something like this. Definitely don't go longer, and don't overlayer it.

I would keep the length and have a long fringe that could be swooshed to the side.

You need some layers to give it fullness in top, and yeah fringe. It needs lift at the scalp. Play around with different parts (like hair flipped around to different sides)

I think my suggestion will only look mullety on a thick haired person. The cut's ideal for fine hair....adding thickness where you need.

Needahairbrush · 25/08/2018 23:57

Here’s a side shot, it’s not that thin, but it’s wispy around the front ends (meds have taken their toll).
Does this help or change any advice?

It looks quite fine to me OP. Not in a bad way....it's just that you can see it's weighed down. Perhaps the ends are damaged?

I think the Helena Christensen pic @rhubarbfool posted would suit you best op. You have quite a high hairline and need a fringe to frame your face better, but one that can be swept to the side so that it's not too heavy for your face. Good luck!

Thanks all, it’s given me lots of food for thought. I think a light fringe maybe the way to go, along with less length. I like this style

Yes that would suit you op, lovely!

I’ve gone for the chop. It’s not tousled (but could be) and has a small side fringe. It feels a lot better with the ends gone.

Can we have a picture please?!

Here you go... please be kind 😁I realised my hair is thin and I have a large forehead from this thread 🙈
I’m really pleased with it, it’s much less straggly.
