hairstyles for long, thick hair

If you have long, thick hair, let’s face it, you’re going to be the envy of all your girlfriends. Long, thick tresses are fabulous, but you need to make sure it is cut and styled well or it can turn in to a big ball of fluff.

Here we’ve pulled together some of the best hairstyles for long, thick hair that we think you’ll love.

Long layers

The longer hair gets, the heavier it gets, especially if it’s thick. So long layers are a brilliant way to add lightness and movement and to stop hair from getting weighed down at the roots.

Classic curls

The Duchess of Cambridge is perhaps the best know exponent of classic, long, thick curls. They just exude chic style. Wear them cascading down with a centre parting or for a more formal, evening look pull across to one side and wear them falling over one shoulder. Fabulous with a strapless or one shoulder evening gown.Classic curls for long, thick hiar

Face framing layers

By cutting layers to chin and shoulder length they will frame your face and accentuate your features. Blow dry the layers inwards so that they provide the perfect frame.

Beachy waves

Long beachy waves are casual and cute and great for a slightly tangled, thrown together look. Part in the middle or to the side – whatever you prefer.

Blunt fringe

Blunt, thick and heavy fringes work best with thick hair. If you want a softer, more feathery look be aware you’ll be thinning and texturizing regularly. So if you have thick hair we recommend a blunt, eyebrow grazing fringe which is super chic and flattering.
