Many women just go for the chop and cut it off. Sure we know how could you just cut those luscious locks? Well going short is a great way to save effort and time when it comes to thick hair. If saving time and looking stunning is what you want have a look at these breathtaking short hairstyles for thick hair.
Super Bangs for Super Chic
When you have thick, very thick hair is it a great idea to pair it with a nice short haircut and some bangs. The blunt bangs will bring all the attention to your eyes and face. If you are someone who loves attention this is the look for you.
To get this look you want to start with damp hair and using a medium round brush blow dry your hair. Once the hair is dry you will need to smooth over each section using a flat iron. Be sure to protect your hair by using a heat protectant before flat ironing. After you have finished with the iron you simply grab your texture cream and smooth out your bangs. If you like the messier look use your fingers to make the fringe look undone.
You’ve already done the hardest part and went short. This cut and style works great for women who may not like their foreheads and just want there eyes to be the focus. Whether you have a long, round or elongated face this hairstyle just works wonders.
Be that Edgy Woman with Spikes
Ever thought of going spikey? We have seen Halle Berry rock the short spiked a few times over the years. While it does have that edgy look and appeal you can still be very feminine with this cut. This is one of those short hairdo’s that will make medium or longer haired females all so jealous.
If this is a look you want to go for you need to start with clean damp hair. Start by using a flat paddle brush to dry your hair. For those who want a more sleeker straighter look you can use a flat iron and flat iron your hair. Again be sure to apply thermal protectant to your hair before adding heat. For this messy look with spikes you need texture cream and using your fingers you want to separate or mess up your hair on the top.
For those with even more daring spirits go for the spikes all over. You can also go with long or short bangs with this haircut. The longer the bangs however the easier it will be for you to frame your face. This works for women with round, square, oval or heart shaped faces.
Short and Sleek Blunt Cut
A blunt cut is just one of the favorites around here. Whether you are going with a shoulder length cut or short cut it gives you that wonder classic look and style. Thicker haired women usually don’t go wrong with this very simple yet classy look. Spice it up with a zig zag or deep side part and pull some of the hair behind your ears.
The classic blunt look starts with clean slightly wet hair. You need to blow dry the hair using a medium-sized boar bristle round brush. If you don’t have one you can easily pick one up from Amazon or Walmart. Once you have finished blow drying check it out to see if you have the sleek appearance that you want. If not go over the hair with a flat iron to smooth it out even more.
Finish the look by apply some shine spray or smoothing serum to your locks. If you are using some type of aerosol spray be sure to spray it in your hands then apply it to your hair. Of course this is a style that looks better on women with thicker hair but as far as face shapes go you can rock this cut with a round, square, oval, heart, long or narrow shape.
Just Add A Little Volume Please
Turn your normal or ordinary day in to one that is superb. Volume can help in a way that only it could especially if you have your trusty round brush. Sounds to good to be true? Well I beg to differ. Volume sometimes is truly all a girl needs.
After washing and conditioning your hair you want to take your medium boar bristle brush and dry your hair in small to medium sized sections. Once the damp hair is completely dried you will now need to backcomb your hair at the roots to give it that extra volume. Some women are against backcombing their hair so if you don’t want that “extra volume” skip that back combing.
Finish off this fantastic look with some of your best light hold spray. If you want the extra volume add the extra step. You can also go with a lot of layers for your thick hair and it looks great for women with oval, round, square and diamond shapes.
Curled Out and Ready to Go
Styling short locks can be really spiced up just simply by adding some curls or waves into the mix. If you are one of those lucky few to have both naturally curly thick hair this is a style that will rock your world. From tight to loose curls this is a hairstyle that screams look at my wonderful hair.
For those women not so lucky you need to blow dry your damp hair dry using a flat paddle brush. Once done and hair is completely dry take out your 1 inch curling iron and curl your hair in very small sections. Style and finish the hair with a great but light holding spray. You want to make sure the hairspray you are using won’t leave your hair looking or feeling crispy and/or crunchy.
The Change Up – Asymmetrical Short ‘Do
One thing that seems to be on point is going with an asymmetrical a-line cut. Nothing says loving like the a-line. This trendy cut has been around for years and is truly one of the favorites amongst women and will surely turn heads if done and worn correctly.
With clean wet hair you will need to start by applying root booster or a mousse to the root of your hair. Now with your medium round brush with boar bristles blow dry your entire hair in sections. Grab a good heat protectant and smooth out your hair with a flat iron for that sleek look. Finish the look by apply shine serum to the ends of your hair.
Boar bristle brushes are really great for getting your thick hair straight. The best face shape for this haircut is someone who has asymmetrical face, usually more of a round or circular shape. We have also seen other face shapes wear the cut and it still does look awesome. Just make sure you create a lot of layers in the hair or it will appear too heavy or bulky.
Keep it Smooth and Simple
For some women going with a simple straight hairstyle if just the way to go. Now that you have the short thick hair you want to find that cut that really allows your hair and color to be the hit of the day. Some short hair just looks fab when it is sleek and straight especially if you add color or ombre hair.
Once again you will need to start with clean damp hair. This time apply smoothing serum while the hair is still wet and blow dry your hair using a flat paddle brush. With your flat iron already heating up apply some heat protection to your hair. Now take small sections of hair and smooth out the hair with the flat iron. When you are done you can apply either shine paste or smoothing serum to your ends to finish the look.
Some women use Moroccan Oil when flat iron to help add shine and softness. Find what works for you and your hair. If you have thick hair and really want a short style that will look great this blunt bob cut will definitely do the trick. Remember spice things up and add a little color.
