There are different types of short wedge haircuts that you can choose from:

A typical short wedge haircut – This haircut looks a lot like a short bob except that the hair is cut with layers rather than bluntly cut, but the layering is so gradual that the effect is almost like that of the bob.

A layered short wedge haircut – The label sounds superfluous but it is only to emphasize the heavy layering of the haircut. The hair at the back of the neck can be cut somewhere between 1/8 to an inch long and the rest of the hair heavily layered as it reaches the crown. Bangs for a layered short wedge haircut should also be layered.

Fine hair is a big challenge for hairstylists since fine also equates to flat and some hairstyles do not favor fine hair. Usually fine hair is trimmed short or shoulder length since these lengths will tend to add more body and volume to the hair.

Fine hair is also exceedingly fragile and very susceptible to damage, another reason why some hairstylists are wary of fine hair. Trimming and styling fine hair needs extra care and attention. Very sharp scissors and never razors should be used to trim fine hair. Razors will make fine hair look irregular and jagged while sharp scissors will give keep fine hair tidy and shipshape. Fine hair also tends to lose shape fast so it needs to be trimmed more often. Regular trimming will remove the damaged ends and help to maintain the shape of the hairstyle.
