Each hair type has its own pros and cons, so to speak. For me, I have thin (ish), sticky hair that can not hold a curl or style. While I find it nice that it is relatively low maintenance (and I am a bit lazy about getting experimental with my style), I wish for thicker, richer hair sometimes. And I don’t know why I went through the pinch of my hair anytime, at the end of the night, I was always back in the straight square.
On the other hand, my thick hair friends talk about the fact that it can take a long time to dry their hair, that their hair can feel heavy and somewhat uncontrollable at times. They always say they need extra value for the product. I have a couple of friends who are a bit wary of short hair because, instead of a smooth cut it may end up looking like a shrub style resembling the shape of a mushroom.
But the last part does not have to be true at all. You can can have a short cut if you have thick hair. In style details. So for my thick-haired friends (and those of you out there who are reading this), I asked the hairstylists for their best tips.
When it comes to styling or cutting thick hair (whether short or long), layers and texture are very important. “Often, clients complain about having hair that is too heavy or out of style due to density,” says Mark DeBolt co-owner of Mark Ryan Salon . "Adding texture and weight loss is a great way for hair to move more gently and create a softer feminine silhouette."
Amanda Lee a Mane Addicts stylist, said that long, thick hair with many layers and pieces of face frame is a great choice. But for shorter hair, she focuses on the inner layers: "I tend to avoid the tons of outer layers and focus on the inner layers to lose weight while also giving the hair lots of movement."
When deciding on a hairstyle, you & # 39; I would also consider time and maintenance . How long does it take to style your hair? Does it need to be styled every day? "These are not negatives. I know many clients enjoy preparing and styling their hair in the morning, but for others, it can be a real chore," says Philip Downing TIGI director of creative and education. "The condition is also very important. If you have a lot of hair, the better condition in it will only serve you when it comes to styling your hair. Like skincare, haircare is very important and should be a daily- day work kung especially if the hair is long and / or colored. Your expensive color will only grow in long life it will be taken care of more. "
Yes, the mullet. Come back! "The hot haircut of the moment the mullet is short," explains the celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson . "I & # 39; ve been a hairdresser for a long time, and it & # 39; s said to be a product of the & # 39; 80s, and the & # 39; 80s mullet is different than what it is today. There are many movements. There are different products. It is the same kind of concept, but the ending is different. "
" There are many different variations of mullet, and all is about shape. It can be long at the back and short at the top of the front hairline. It can be very small at the edges and long at the back. It really depends on the texture of your hair. So & # 39; t if you have a little finer hair, you don & # 39; t want to have it until & # 39; t. You want to have a little shorter, "Gibson said. "If you have thicker hair, you want it longer. If you have a really nice wave in your hair, you want to emphasize that because when you cut it you lose a lot of weight, and what does weight enhances your natural texture. "
" Shaggy haircuts work well on thicker hair types because leaves you with plenty of room to customize the shape and weight of the hair, "says Ryan Trygstad co-owner of Mark Ryan Salon . "Shaggy, layered cuts of any length leave hair loose and airy. Clients blessed with thick hair usually love the idea of texture and movement. Generally, they have difficulty showing a loose feel to their thick locks! " 
"Undercut is a perfect hairstyle for people with thick hair who want to keep it short, modern, and movable," says Downing. "The undercut is technically cut shorter at the bottom, leaving a longer length at the top … There are different feet & # 39; t hands of this haircut. Some can be very -classical look, and others may be more diverse.Hair cut at different lengths helps to drop weight in the right places, which can support a softer silhouette for those with thick hair. "
Those with thicker hair types can wear a pixie cut. “I would just say, for a blunt cut or pixie cut, be sure to remove enough weight from the hair so it doesn’t stretch too much,” Lee said.
"Trends like curtain bang and French bob lent themselves to thicker textures there is some natural movement, "DeBolt said.
"Graduate layers are another great option for short hair," Downing says. "This haircut is organically followed by the natural shape of the head through the back and sides, forming a beautiful finish and more weight / length at the top of the head shape. It would be a shorter choice than undercut and works great for people with great head shapes, cheekbones, and eyes.There are many variables with all different types of haircuts-the thing to keep in mind is, more the shorter you go, the more pronounced your other features. Features on the face, hairlines, neck, shoulders, etc. "
Haircut is important, but style is also important. Remember these tips.
1. Air-dry: "A great way to style thick hair is to go for a more airy, natural-textured style," Trygstad says. "Applying a hair product if the hair is damp and either drying in the air or using a diffuser to create a more natural textured look, will make the hair look softer and more damaged."
2. Try this flat-iron technique: "If you want a curly or wavy look, Start by flat-ironing under a few sections back straight so your hair is not too big! " Lee said.
3. Products are key: "Using the right style and finishing products makes or prevents in any hairstyle. The products are designed to enhance textures, movements, shine, and separation, "Downing said. "The right products will work for you too, making your home life easier which is very important. If you need to control the hair, for example, smooth it down and reduce the volume, which usually happens with thick hair. Using a Protecting the heat cleansing product with full heat from the hair dryer as early as possible will give you the best results. It is important not to let the hair dry out too much without applying the products. a lot happens, it's harder to control. Products come in early, then most of the moisture dries, then opt for your desired styling brush to add more control. "
