Thick hair is one of the most coveted hair types, although that’s something you may not realize when faced with the complications of figuring out the right style and look for this unique hair type. Like any hair type, you’re always on the hunt for the perfect cut that won’t make your hair look too puffy. For the most part, medium length haircuts might just be the look that can offer you some style and much-needed manageability. Read on to discover some of our favorite medium length haircuts for thick hair:
1. Layered Haircuts
It’s all about the layers when you have thick hair. This classic medium haircut can make your hair more defined and textured as it adds depth to your features. You can test out really long layers that swoop around your entire head, or go for something more dramatic with short layers that line your facial shape.
2. Lob Haircut
If you want to have some length and aren’t ready to go really short, we suggest trying the lob haircut. This in-between haircut looks perfectly modern and chic as it length sits on your collarbone. It also works great for a variety of textures and hair types. If you experience any frizz or flyaways, simply use some of Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Hair Serum whose formula works to nourish your hair, while also making it smooth and soft.
3. Angled Blunt Cut
Create an illusion to your hair with this dramatic cut. It essentially involves a longer, more dramatic length at the back of your hair as it angles shorter on the front. The cut itself it blunt and sharp, which gives off a controlled look while showcasing your stunning silhouette.
4. Dramatic Side Part
Thick hair has so much definition in its strands that you can really have fun with your part. After you cut your hair, ask your hairdresser to play with your part, going in a completely different direction than you usually go. Trust us, this look is style game-changer.
5. Shoulder-Length Cut with Bangs
To bang or not to bang? That’s really one of the biggest conundrums when it comes to cutting your hair. Those with thick hair really benefit from getting a stylish fringe, as this new length can shape your frame while also offering a new texture to your hair.
6. Rounded Cut with Fluffy Ends
Those seeking a little shape can opt for a rounded cut. Enhance this look by using a curling wand to create loose and fluffy ends. Don’t forget to use some heat protectant like Nexxus Promend Step 3 Heat Protecting Mist. This product works to protect your hair from heat styling with a soft finish.
Have fun with your thick hair by rocking your natural texture. We love the look of curls on medium-length hair that you can style in a variety of ways. Just be sure to use some mousse like Dove Style+Care Volume Amplifier Mousse to help tame frizz and flyaways while giving you a voluminous finish.
