Need a new hair style!! Need ideas!! Picture Included

I have long, very thin hair, that doesn't "hold" many styles.I can use a curling iron, blow dry with a brush, and it will last maybe 10 minutes. Also, I can't seem to get volume! I try to have it layered when I get it cut, but it doesn't seem to help much. I even blow dry it upside down, that seems to help a little. I need a completely new hair style, maybe a new part too (not down the middle). Would LOVE ideas!!!

Here it is currently:

  • Some layers to make your hair fuller and fluffy! Maybe the Jennifer Anistan look work work great for ya'! :o)

  • This could work (style wise). Though I love the color too.

  •   I think your hair would look good in these, but I always wear my hair the same, so i don't know if I am much help GL

  • Honestly, depending on how comfortable you are, if you were in my chair I'd cut it off! A high textured bob, would be sassy, give you some lift and body! Sometimes less is more! I'd go short and wispy in the back and a little longer in the front. And send you home with some texture putty, or manipulator by Bed Head.

  • I'm with musicmom80!! My hair is the exact same as yours, lays flat after drying, etc. I got a cut like Sharon Osbourne's, and LOVE it! It even looks good when it could use a good trim. I can go 4-6 mo without needing a trim, so it is easy maintenance! I blowdry upside down, holding the hair on the nape of my neck, I spray some big sexy super hold spraywhile upside down, flip over, and finger it into place!

    Can't get easier than that! And, if you don't have time to fix it...3min after your shower (even at night, easy touch-up in the morning) you can throw on a hat or cap and still feel great!

  • I would leave it & just do a pony tail or curl it a little when you go out. My hair it so curly, I wish it was straight!
