11 hairstyles to sublimate and tame them
Bulky to be sure, but hard to tame, thick hair can be our best as well as our worst enemies. Yet, as much as you wish you had fine hair, know that your natural hair nature has a lot more potential than you might think. As we know, it is not always easy to know what will look best on us in terms of hairstyles. The shock writing of The Body Optimist is then there to deliver you its darkest secrets, in order to become one with your thick hair and avoid the helmet effect. Follow the guide !
1 – The afro cut
This is the quintessential short haircut for afro hair.
2 – The boyish cut
We therefore opt for very short, almost shaved, or a degraded boyish cut on the ears, very feminine.
3 – The gradient square
The short is very suitable for thick hair. However, you should avoid intermediate lengths which will accentuate the volume instead of breaking it, if that is your wish. We therefore avoid the bowl cut, the short square very plunging or any other “ball” cut which will make the hair look even fuller, even more puffy. We rather fall for the irresistible and timeless gradient square that minimum starts in the jawbones or in the middle of the neck.
4 – The long square
The long bob helps keep the raw lines and texture of the hair for a fresh and modern look. Above all, we do it degraded on the tips to avoid the Playmobil effect. We are inspired by Cara Delevingne’s long bob or Emilia Clarke’s wavy bob.
5 – The gradient on long hair
The longer the hair, the heavier its weight. Thick hair falls well under the shoulders and swells less. The advantage is that all long cuts are allowed, degraded as straight lines, curly like smooth.
6 – The curtain fringe
To twist its length, you can even afford bangs on thick hair. We opt for a curtain fringe for example or a long and tapered fringe which gives structure to the cut.
7 – The gradient on the strands
A mid-length cut is possible, but in a layered version. We then recommend a slight gradient on the front locks to make it more aerial.
8 – Tapered tips
A simple way to lighten thick hair is to thin out the ends. Thinning the tips will bring movement to your hairstyle.
9 – The long bangs
Long, thin bangs on thick hair help to remove the weight by dividing the bangs into small sections, which show the forehead. When doing a ponytail or low bun, your curtain bangs will serve as an “accessory”.
10 – The undercut
The undercut is an avant-garde technique practiced by some hairdressers and which consists of cutting very short, barely 0.5 cm, strands of hair under the mass. This very degraded cut makes it possible to refine the hair.
11 – A bob cut
It involves cutting wet hair and air drying it to achieve a particular texture. It can run on hair of any thickness, but the blunt shape is especially suitable for thick hair.
