Instagram’s best short hairstyles for men with thick hair
Classic fade modern cut
We know thick hair can be a little too much to handle everyday, especially if you’re a wash and go kind of guy. So, what you need is a top-notch hairstyle that won’t require an army-load of hair tools – which is why we love this modern curly cut with a classic fade. Credit: @rpb_nq
Editor’s tip: For undone texture and plenty of movement, we suggest using the TONI&GUY Messy Salt Spray. Spritz it from root to tip on damp or dry hair, and work it in with your fingers for maximum body and texture.
Long top + short sides
We all know that a good haircut makes all the difference when it comes to both thick and thin hair. So when you’re looking for short haircuts for men with thick hair, it’s important to consider the weight distribution.
Opting for a long top and short sides combo (like above) will stop your hair feeling too heavy, but will still allow for plenty of styling possibilities. Credit: @hugo.cavalari
