We often talk about how difficult it is for people with fine hair to style their hair, forgetting that those with thick and voluminous hair are not easy either. Do you feel like you are faced with a limited choice of haircuts and even consider some - like the short haircut - to be off limits to you? Think again! In this article, we show you five short hairstyles made to sublimate your thick hair and help you tame the volume. To your notes!
For a long time, we heard that thick hair and short haircuts were not meant to get along: difficult styling, indomitable volume, helmet effect? To avoid all this, just choose a short haircut suitable for thick hair: yes, it does exist!
What is known to show off thick hair less is straight and medium cuts (like the mid-length for example), in other words, nothing that a short cut cannot avoid, so why not skip the not?
The great advantage of the short is that it will adorn your thick hair with movement and will have the art of giving spring to the curls that may appear in your hair. Now check out five short hairstyles that are perfect to enhance your thick hair.
Do not doubt it any longer: thick hair can also adopt bangs, you just need to know the right proportion so that it does not appear too heavy on the face and that it knows how to give structure to your short haircut. Curtain bangs, long bangs, tapered bangs… In reality, your choice will depend much more on the shape of your face than on the nature of your hair. With a hair type like yours, don't forget to go for lightness!
If your thick hair is beautiful the way it is, there's nothing to stop you from lightening it up a bit to make it easier to style, but be careful: not just in any way. Indeed, in order not to denature your hair, we advise you to ask that your hair is especially tapered at the roots by targeting very strategic places such as the nape of the neck and the top of the head.
Note that if the fact of thinning allows to lighten the hair, degrading it rather serves to break the geometry of the cut. As a reminder: very straight lines and shortcuts do not always go well together. So, to do this, you can ask your hairstylist to focus on the strands of hair framing your face in a way that gives your hair a nice movement.
Be careful, however, a short cut that is too degraded and/or too tapered will lose its charm and structure, so you have to go sparingly! Above all, remember that volume is one of the biggest assets of your thick hair.
In general, short cuts are very maintenance-friendly and even more so in your case given the material your hair has! This is the reason why - by choosing to go short - you may be spending more time than you are used to in a hair salon. Beyond that, and in order to better control your hair between two appointments, we recommend that you adopt a care routine adapted to the nature of your hair: disciplining shampoo, anti-frizz care, detangling, and sheathing... So many hair products are likely to become the best allies for the beauty of your short haircut!
