Hairstyles for Thick Hair | Bobby Glam Blog

Hairstyles for Thick HairWe all know that it’s important to keep our face shape in mind when considering a brand new hairstyle or haircut, but did you know that it’s also a wise move to take your hair’s texture into account, too? Hairstyles that look fab on fine-haired ladies may end up looking far from sensational on thick-haired gals – and vice versa! So, if you’re looking for a new ‘do and you’ve been blessed with thick locks, take a look at some of these super flattering hairstyles for thick hair before going for the chop…

Hairstyles for thick hair: Long layers

Hairstyles for Thick HairOne of our all-time favourite hairstyles for thick hair is long layers. Not only do they serve to thin out heavy locks (avoiding the dreaded ‘triangular head’ effect), they also add oodles of swish-worthy bounce to tresses, too. We particularly love Gisele Bundchen’s long, layered style as it’s ultra flattering and full of movement – a definite hairstyle contender for thick-haired ladies that like to keep their manes long and lustrous! Once you’ve had your layers snipped in, show them off with a texturising, layer-defining hair product such as the Tigi Bed Head Hard To Get and wait for the compliments to roll in.

Hairstyles for thick hair: Ombré hair

Hairstyles for Thick HairThough not a ‘hairstyle’ for thick hair as such, dip-dyed ends can do wonders for those of us with thick, unmanageable tresses. As thick-haired beauty Rachel Bilson demonstrates perfectly, ombré locks are a fantastic, on-trend way of balancing out thick hair, as the lighter ends serve to create the illusion that the tips are less thick and heavy. What’s more, Rachel’s ombré tresses look cute as can be coupled with her naturally wavy hair texture! If you do opt for ombré, make sure to keep those ends moisturised with a smattering of the Tigi S Factor Silky Smooth Moisture Serum every now and again.

Hairstyles for thick hair: Blunt bangs

Hairstyles for Thick HairOur perennial hair crush, Zooey Deschanel, has been rocking a totally lustworthy hairstyle for thick hair for quite some time now – and, of course, we’re talking about those statement bangs! Zooey’s blunt, heavy fringe is a superb hairstyle choice for thick-haired ladies as it suits this hair texture type perfectly. Unlike fine fringes, unashamedly thick, heavy ones don’t tend towards fluffiness or stringiness – instead, they look polished, healthy, and are oh-so-fashionable right now. Not sure if a full fringe will suit your face shape? Then take a look at our guide to selecting the perfect celeb-inspired bangs here.

Hairstyles for Thick Hair: The Choppy bob

Hairstyles for Thick HairNext up in our Bobby Glam rundown of delectable hairstyles for thick hair is Julianne Hough’s flirty-yet-edgy choppy bob. This is one A-list-approved ‘do that’s perfect for thick-haired girls that prefer to keep their hair short – and why wouldn’t you? Bobs and lobs are so on trend this season! To take some of the bulk out of your thick mane, ask your stylist to thin out the ends of your bob by razor-cutting the tips of your hair. That way, your Julianne Hough-style hairdo will end up looking light and bouncy, rather than weighed down and bottom-heavy. Style your bob with the Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Dust for extra root lift.

Hairstyles for thick hair: The half-up, half-down ‘do

Hairstyles for Thick HairWant a party-perfect hairstyle for thick hair that requires minimal styling know-how or effort? Then say hello to your new hair BFF: the half-up, half-down ‘do. Nina Dobrev always manages to pull off the half-up, half-down ‘do in style, so make her your celebrity hair inspiration! This simple hairstyle works particularly well on thick hair as it helps to keep some of your bountiful hair strands out of your face while drawing attention to your mane’s natural, enviable thickness. To recreate Nina’s hair’s glistening shine, apply the Tigi Bed Head Dream Drops through your tresses after styling.

We hope these hairstyles for thick hair have given you some serious styling food for thought! Which one is your favourite?
