Hi all,

I've run into a dilemma with styling my hair. I've basically defaulted, time and time again, to the "Bieber" hair style because of my fine hair.

I don't mean "fine" as a vain word to describe good hair, I'm talking more of "each piece of hair is thin" which therefore leads to my main concern: My hair does not contain volume very well. This makes it difficult for me to style it in some of the more fashionable "poofy" hair styles, without using hair spray or greasing it up.

I'm wondering what I might recommend my barber to try with my hair? Currently it looks the same as it is in my profile picture although it's an older photo (below for a bigger view):

Ideally, I'd like to get some extra volume in it. I've tried a volume-adding shampoo and it hasn't worked in the long run. My barber told me that "shampoos that add volume are only temporary... if you think about it, you only have them in your hair for a brief period of time, then you wash them out". It makes sense to me.

Are there any others out there that share my pain? What do you do about it?

PS. I would definitely like to go for a "Jason Bateman" hair style if possible, which can be seen on this page:

I'm just not sure whether my fine hair will work well with these though. I use Pom-aid and everything but most of the time my hair just flops back down into my face sometime in the day.

Any advice is appreciated.

Can you not go and ask advice from a hair stylist or hairdresser? 

I would if I knew any :/ but for now, I'm hoping someone on here might be able to offer some advice...

There may be, if not just walk into a hairdressers and present them with your issue... I am sure they will be happy to give you advice 

Fine hair simply means that each hair is thin.  We need more information.

 

It looks, in your photo, like your hair is combed down and forward...and it has some decent volume already.  It's just too long and too heavy.  Counterintuitive as it may seem, longer hair tends to weigh itself down and appears thinner than if it is cut short and allowed to spike up for some volume.

 

I don't know that you could successfully pull off the Jason Bateman haircut, but as an interim choice I could see you with a taper, full on top, swept forward, with a part on the left side.  Classic businessman's taper.  And, for those times you want more volume, sweep the bangs up or back.

 

Do go in and talk to a barber.  Whatever you choose will have to be tailored for you, specifically, and a consultation will be a very good investment of time.  

No hair dresser. Barber yes.

I used to have my hair similar.  A year ago, I started going shorter on the top and sides, but just barely touching the ears.  I also did away with any part.  So, it is now towel dry easy and go.  I've found I like it much better that way, and my wife does as well.

Best of luck !

ISIS and male emasculation

I've been keeping up with developments in the Middle East with ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), the militant terrorist group that has declared itself a caliphate and are terrorizing people in that region.I've been reading that possibly dozens of people from the U.S. and U.K. have left their homes and become operatives of that group, most notably the unknown member who executed journalist Jim Foley on video, and Douglas MacAuthur McCain, the Minnesotan who was killed in Syria fighting…See More
