Hairstyles for Fine, Straight Hair: Hairstylist Tips for Flat Hair - The Skincare Edit

Ask a Hairstylist: The Best Hairstyles for Long, Fine, Straight Hair

Work with your natural assets.

Welcome to our Hair Consultations column. To request an online hair consultation, follow the instructions here.

Q: Dear Bill, I'm a 28-year-old Danish girl. My whole life, I have been trying to find a haircut/style that suits me, but without any luck. I have a round face and thin, straight, naturally blonde and Scandinavian-looking hair. It is really flat on the top.

Sofie's hair is fine, straight and naturally blonde.

I have really big cheeks and a small head. But I'm a tiny girl—5'3" and size XS. I have short legs, no hips and no boobs. So my hair should be feminine.

I really hope you can help me choose a good-looking haircut. I'm a bit of a fashion girl, so I want a fashionable and easy haircut. I'm up for almost anything! Kind regards — Sofie

Sophie wants a fashionable hairstyle that will work on her petite frame.

A: Sofie, with most of the people who send in their consultation requests, they already look fantastic. So for fear of sounding redundant, I think you are doing just fine.

Anyone with fine hair wants to have volume, curl, height and length.

The reality is that the natural resources you were born with will dictate what will or won't work.

If, by now, you have not found the magic bullet, then you might want to make peace with your pretty hair as it is.

Here are three examples of the company you keep with this style:

Gwyneth Paltrow at the 2009 New York premiere of 'Valentino: The Last Emperor'.

Charlize Theron at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.

Charlize Theron at the 2012 London premiere of 'Prometheus'.

Change your part, wear it straight, wear it up and make the most of your already pretty hair.
