If you’ve been blessed with thick hair, you have so many options when it comes to both styles and cuts. No matter how hard it might seem to find the right look for your thick hair, trust us, you’ve got options. While it might take more than a few quick minutes to either blow dry or air dry, embrace it and love the hair you’ve been blessed with!
When it comes to thick hair, it’s not all about short hair cuts as thick hair looks great ultra long, medium length or a bit shorter. Bangs can also be a great addition for thicker hair, since they’re more likely to stay in place once styled rather than ending-up slicked-down and limp. Layers are a great option too, since they help remove any unwanted thickness and help thick, heavy hair achieve more volume.
Ready to get inspired? Beautster has compiled some of our favourite haircuts and styles for thick hair.
The Stacked Bob
If you’re leaning towards a shorter look, consider this long bob. Unlike a blunt bob, this cut has stacked layers in the back, meant to add shape and structure. It’s also great because you don’t have to tediously style your hair to achieve volume – the stacked layers do the job for you.
A shaggy look complete with lots of layers at various lengths and bangs does wonders for thick hair. The layers are often feathered at the top and sides while layers around the face make the hair full around the crown.
Layered Shoulder Cut
This sassy, shoulder-length layered cut makes thick hair look even thicker by adding dimension and depth. It’s a super flattering look on just about every thick-haired head of hair.
This collarbone-grazing cut, which is a variation of a bob cut, gives thick curly hair added lift and movement. It’s between long hair and a bob, hence why it’s been given the name lob.
Being blessed with thick hair means you can try blunt bangs without fearing that they’ll turn out feathery or wispy. Blunt bangs can also completely transform your face, but if you have a longer face shape, try a softer bang instead.
Side-Parted Shoulder Cut
This blunt cut paired with a deep side part is intended to play-up thickness without making thick hair look weighed down. The offset part makes this look seem almost asymmetrical while also framing the face in a fun and playful way.
The trick to achieving awesome curly bangs is to ask your stylist to dry cut them so there’s no guesswork when it comes to predicting how they’ll fall once they’re dried after a wash. Curly bangs are an excellent way to enhance the overall volume of a look, and your bouncy curls will add some extra interest. Heavier curly bangs will help to soften the face and create a dramatic look that focuses on the eyes.
Asking your stylist for internal layers, or “ghost layers” means they won’t be noticeable from the outside, but you’ll definitely notice your hair feeling much less bulk and heavy. These layers add texture and movement throughout your hair without sacrificing length and also create the illusion that you have a one length haircut.
These eyebrow grazing fringe-style bangs are a noncommittal version of full fringe bangs and work well with long, medium, even short hair. This is a low-maintenance way to frame your face without cutting off too much hair.
A crowd-pleaser, long layers lighten thickness and don’t cause bulk. A full head of strategically placed layers adds major movement and dimension and they’re perfect for wearing straight, waved or curled.
Easy to maintain, a tousled lob is ultra flattering for thicker hair. Plenty of movement and volume created by layers, coupled with minimum weight, makes styling this look a breeze.
Inspired by the iconic Jane Birkin, these bangs are a cool, classic take on straight, thick bangs. It’s a super stylish bang that adds sophistication and elegance to any thick, straight head of hair.
