The 3 Best Haircuts for Thick Hair

Thick hair is great, but if it isn’t cut and styled correctly, it can turn into a big fluff ball (especially when humid weather rolls around). Anne Maza, CEO of Olivia Garden Hair Brush and Accessories, weighs in on the three best haircuts for thick hair.

Long Layers
“If you have medium to long curly hair, a long-layered haircut is a great way to create shape to the hair and add a vibrant bounce to the curl,” says Maza.

Shoulder-Length Hair
“For thick straight or thick wavy hair, shoulder length is flattering. Also add some light layers to provide texture, movement, and a smooth, blended finish to your look.”

Bob or Lob Haircut
“If you have thick hair, a bob can be tricky, so it’s important to work closely with your stylist to achieve the best look,” says Maza. “Typically, if you have thicker hair and want a bob, the ends should be piece-y to avoid that mushroom-head look. Or go for a lob, which is a little longer than a bob. It’s very hot right now, and adds weight to thick hair, keeping it more controlled.”
