Do you have big, thick hair? If so, you know the unique set of challenges of finding hairstyles for thick hair. In one way, you have to consider yourself lucky that you do not have to worry about thinning locks and thick healthy hair can be quite striking.
On the other hand, as a person with thick hair I can testify that it is not always easy to style our type of hair, so that it looks good on a daily basis.
For instance, we tend to have our own private summers taking place in our hair and on our scalp. The heat is so intense that our hair can soon resemble a helmet because it has expanded all over our head!
So, what’s a girl to do?
There are many ways to style our hair type. For some, the fact that there are so many choices can be a little frustrating. So, to make things easier on you we have narrowed down 5 go to styles that will have you looking your absolute best.
Hairstyles For Thick Hair
1. Short Hair
Is your hair long? Have you given any thought to a shorter style? Cutting off some of the length helps your hair to look its best. Also, short is currently in style, and it certainly makes it easier to manage your hair on a daily basis.
For a daytime look that is simple and classy, consider pulling your hair back into a smokin’ hot ponytail. It keeps your tresses off of your face, which is essential if you are at work or engaging in vigorous activity. In addition, it does not take long to style, so you’re out the door fast.
3. Bun Hairstyle
If your hair is quite long and you need an easy style, think about a bun. It gives you a nice, put together look that can work for just about any occasion or event. When looking for hairstyles for thick hair this one is usually a favorite.
4. Wavy Hair
If you want to dress up your long, thick hair a bit, use a curling iron to create waves. To hold the style all day, use a light hairspray to keep the look in place.
Braids or as my grandmother used to say, “plaits” are another option. This look is quite fashionable and stylish. This particular hairstyle tends to keep you cool as air can easily circulate throughout, which this is a favorite still for me in the summertime.
Hope these five hairstyles for thick hair have given you some hair inspiration.
