While thick hair types tend to be blessed with natural volume and texture, finding the right haircut can be a bit tricky. Men with thick hair types should be encouraged to try styles that are light and weightless. They should also select cuts that show off their natural texture easily. If you still aren’t exactly sure what cut to choose, here are ten different haircuts for thick hair types to inspire you.
10 Haircuts for Thick Hair
1. Textured Pompadour
If your thick hair is full of volume, opting for a textured pompadour can help show off your natural texture easily. This funky look is ideal for someone with longer hair length, so if you are interested in this cut, ask your stylist to buzz the sides, keeping a good amount of hair on top. To style your pompadour, feel free to wear it sleek and styled. However, wearing it textured and wavy always makes for an on-trend look. To get a naturally undone feel, use the Bed Head For Men by Tigi Pure Texture Molding Paste on clean and damp hair to sculpt some imperfect waves. Finish with some hairspray to help seal your look.
2. Long and Curly
If you are blessed with long, thick curls, there’s nothing wrong with showing off your natural texture. But if you are growing bored of wearing the same hairstyle daily, changing up your part gives a fun and easy twist on the look. Trying out a center part, for example, gives your look a polished and uncomplicated form of styling.
3. Floppy Undercut
An undercut can even work on medium-thick hair types, as a floppy undercut with buzzed sides can really take your hair to the next level. Like pompadours, this style can be worn textured and straight. Just make sure you have a good styling product on hand to achieve any kind of finish you choose.
Like undercuts and pompadours, quiffs make a great style for those with thick hair. It easily takes the bulk off the back of your head. However, quiffs are all about fade. Be sure to ask your stylist to buzz the back and sides of the head carefully. Styling your quiff is all about texture, so you’ll want to use a good volumizing product or gel that can give the top part of your style some lift. To get those playful spikes, use the Axe Spiked-Up Look: Extreme Hold Gel to carefully mold your style into place.
5. Edgy Shag
Shags are another great style for thick curly types, as they give hair a beachy vibe. To get the look, make sure and ask your stylist to layer your cut, adding in some bangs for maximum impact. And while this look usually requires next to no styling, feel free to use some mousse to help enhance your look. Finish off with a mist of Bed Head by TIGI Full of It Volume Hair Spray to add more volume to your curls.
