Sweet. Now that you’ve got your volumizer at the ready, it’s time to start thinking about a new do: and to help, we’re going to give you a glimpse at four trending hairstyles for men with fine hair.

We hope these four definitive hairdos for fine hair will give you the inspiration you need to get the perfect new volumizing style for you.

Without further ado, let’s get going.

The slick back

One of the most classic yet trending hairstyles for men, this do is not only versatile, but it's also an incredibly effective yet simple way to volumize fine hair.

Now, just to be clear, while the slick back works wonderfully with fine hair, it might not be the perfect choice for thinning or balding hair, as pushing it back can sometimes accentuate or expose thinning, patching sections.

To achieve this slick, suave and totally trending look, you should apply a generous dollop of pomade to your hair and slick it back with your fingers or a comb, following the contours of your scalp.

For a less formal look - and this works particularly well for gents with curly or wavy hair - you can slick back the front and sides, using less product to mess up or add texture to the top with your fingers.

Textured and messy

Trending men’s hairstyles for fine hair come in many forms, but they all have one thing in common: each place focus on keeping the hair both refined and contained, maintaining shape and volume as a result. The textured and messy look, although it doesn’t sound refined or contained, is no exception.

In fact, the wild, bed-headed, textured look is trending right now, and works especially well for men with fine hair, as you’re able to add ample volume while maintaining control and avoid that pesky frizz in the process.

Depending on your hair type (straight, wavy, curly, etc.) you can go for different variations of this style, opting for a short, spiked do with the help of a rock-solid pomade, a messy and textured fringe, or an unstructured style that is guided by the natural flow of your mop. If you’ve got curls that are quite tight or controlled, the natural look will prove most effective as it will require minimal styling and maintenance.

Side parting

The side parted style is a particularly trending hairstyle for men at present, with the likes of Ryan Gosling and George Clooney wearing the look in Hollywood movies and red carpets the world over. But, while this hairstyle is brilliant, it doesn’t necessarily work for everyone. That said, when it does work, the side parted look is a sight to behold. And, it is a look that can work wonders for men with fine hair.

For maximum side parting success, you should ask your barber to taper out the side that has less hair, helping you to define the parting with subtlety while maintaining a reasonable neat finish.

A little wax or pomade will help to add volume and definition to all of the main sections surrounding the parting while adding a dose of texture to your hair. Play around with your hair's length, keeping it short and cropped or adding in a longer, sweeping fringe - with a little trial and error, we're positive you'll land on the perfect parted look for you.

The faded undercut

One of the most trending hairstyles for men with thin hair right now, the intricate and ever-slick faded undercut will have you turning heads on the street in an instant.

The faded undercut is very versatile, and it works a treat with a range of hair textures, from flat and straight hair to the curliest of curly waves. As a result of this, the faded undercut is one of the few short hairstyles for thin hair that will look amazing no matter what kind of day your hair is having.

The graduated faded sides you opt for will hide any hard to manage areas, and free you up to focus solely on the center section of your hair, applying pomade to build a more voluminous, textured look or smoothing it down with wax to develop a slick finish.

If you're craving that classic Peaky Blinders look, having a blunt fringe cut in to create a stark contrast from the back and sides will work wonders.
