Hairstyle for Thick, Curly Hair

Looking for the right hairstyle for thick, curly hair? We’ve got some ideas for you.

If your hair is long…

Long hair affects the curl factor because of the extra weight it adds. Layers around the front will add variation to the curl to keep the pyramid effect at bay. For a glamorous, modern wave, first apply a leave-in straightening product to wet hair to relax your waves. Use a diffuser to blow your hair dry. Shape with fingers and paddle brush, and use a leave-in cream to control frizz.

If your curls are tight and spiral-like…

A pageboy shoulder length cut will work best for you. Ask your stylist to layer out the ends to avoid the afro effect. To define these curls, use a leave-in conditioner on damp hair. Blow dry hair with a diffuser while scrunching. Try these funky hair styles for thick hair if you’re looking for something a little different.


If you have short hair…

Go for a pixie cut, which is a great hairstyle for thick, curly hair. Long layers in the front will feminize this super cute look. To style: apply a leave-in conditioner to wet hair that’s meant to help straighten hair. This will help relax the waves. Using a blow dryer and a round brush, fluff up your hair from underneath. If it makes your hair to wild, you can use a paddle brush to tame the front layers. Shape hair with fingers and mist with a finishing spray. Visit our gallery of thick bob hairstyles for more ideas.
