Humidity, kinks, disappearance of kirby grips – thick hair life can be tough. There are hairstyles that work your thicker tresses to all their voluminous magic, and they’re right here. Well, 17 of them.
There’s power in a good fringe. Go ‘full’ if your hair is straight in texture, blow dry ‘under’ with a barrel brush to curl, spritz with hairspray and part in the middle for the ‘good kind of curtains’ – think Zoey Deschanel.
The half-up-half-down. Back comb your hair at the root to add height, then take hair from the sides and push up. Hold in place with a clip – slides like this are doing the rounds right now – or a bobble, topped with ribbon. Like school photo day, but grown up.
Thick hair, you were made for the donut/messy bun. Pile to the top of your head and secure with a thick, not thin, band (but you knew that already). Pull from the root to release a little volume, and untuck a few strands to the frame the face. The messier, the better. Like all good donuts.
Give them a try. Or take inspiration from one of these voluminous-haired beauties. We’re in this lots-of-hair thing together.Book hair
