Here are few Hairstyles for Thick Wavy Hair
Slicked Back Buns
One of the suave hairstyle trends seen on the runways recently is the Slicked Back Bun. This can be done a little less strictly by allowing the hair to remain natural while being placed in the bun or for a completely slick look you can add styling gel to prevent any flyaways. These are terrific hairstyles for thick wavy hair that you can learn to do yourself with a little practice.
1. Hair Styling Gel (optional)
2. Comb or Brush
3. Hair Tie
4. Bobby pins or hair pins
Step by Step Slick Back Bun:
- Brush your hair back from your face and remove any tangles, so your hair is smooth.
- Place a small amount of gel into the palm of your hand and rub this onto the palms of both hands. Smooth this over the surface of your hair to help prevent flyaways and add sleekness to your appearance. (You may skip this step if you wish for a more natural look.)
- Comb the gel through your hair and brush into a ponytail.
- Use your hair tie to tie the ponytail in place.
- Twist your ponytail in one direction all the way down the length of it.
- Now wrap your twisted ponytail around into a bun at the back of your head, pinning it in place as you go. Continue until you have wrapped all your hair into the bun and tuck in the ends so they are not seen. Be sure to pin your bun well, so that it will stay in place.
Braids and Twists
Another of this season’s hairstyles for thick wavy hair is a similar look to the Slick Backed Bun but not so rigid. The best haircuts for thick, wavy hair for the Braids and Twists would be all one length hair or layered. For this variation, simply braid your hair with one or more braids in your favourite braiding style, such as fishtail or dutch braid. Simply twist together your braids and pin them into a bun. You can place the bun anywhere on your head that prefer or would like to try. Buns can be placed on top of your head to the side or at the back. You can follow the step by step guide for the Slick Backed Bun, but rather than brushing your hair straight back into a ponytail you would braid your hair the way you want. Don’t worry if your hairstyle has loose tresses hanging down, that is perfectly acceptable with this style.
Alani “La La” Anthony shows her version of the style of Braids and Twists in this photo. She has her thick, wavy hair pulled back from her face and braided across the crown of her head in a couple of braids and then these braids and the rest of her hair, that has not been braided is twisted together into a top bun. These can be fun hairstyles for thick wavy hair that can be worn for any occasion, including a day at work or out for the evening.
Messy Top Knots
Katie Holmes shows off her own Messy Top Knot in the photograph above. This a completely carefree hairstyle trait that can easily be copied by women with thick, wavy hair. You can create this look by brushing or just pulling all your hair up to the top of your head with your hands and tieing it in place. The point of this trend is to have a messy look to all of your hair including the top knot. So this is a quick method for creating hairstyles for wavy hair. This is a great look for day at the beach when you don’t want to get your hair wet in the water or when you just don’t have the time or inclination to fuss over your hair too much. It is also an easy style to wear when you have a busy day of cleaning around the house or are busy taking care of children.
Ponytail with Perfect Middle Part
Priyanka Chopra shows this fashionable trend of the Ponytail with a Perfect poof bun at the top of her hair in the above photo. This is the simplest of all the hairstyles for thick, wavy hair this season. To create this look, simply comb the top of your hair and poof it up and pin it in the middle. You must use a comb for this step as using a brush will make it harder to find and make the perfect poof. imply comb the rest of your hair down from the part. Carefully, brush your hair back without losing the part and pull and tie your hair into a ponytail that will go down your back. It is very easy to do.
Many women have short haircuts for thick, wavy hair because of the weight and volume their hair has. Even if you have shorter hair you can still create this look with a shorter ponytail. In the picture above, she has created a teased up pouf look at the back of her head to add more size and volume to this style. This partial beehive look is another popular trend for this season and is one of the hairstyles for thick wavy hair featured here.
Mila Kunis demonstrates in the photograph above, the hot trend of a variation on the popular 60’s Mod look. This is one of those perfect hairstyles for thick, wavy hair that is fairly easy to recreate. You can leave your natural curly waves on their own or add extra curl if you wish to in order to copy this look. Part the front section of your hair with the perfect middle part that is in style this season. Brush the rest of the top of your hair back and tease it up at the crown to add volume. Brush your hair carefully and softly to smooth it out without destroying the volume you have created or flattening out your curls. Copying the 60’s Mod styles is one of the best ways to show off wavy hairstyles.
Wet roots and hair falling naturally to look as though you recently had a shower or had been swimming is the Gym Sleek style. Short haircuts for thick, wavy hair are especially suited to this fashionable look. This is another one of the trendy hairstyles for thick wavy hair that you can easily create and maintain yourself.
1. Hair Styling Gel
2. Comb (optional)
Step by Step:
- Place an amount of styling gel onto your palm and work it on your fingers and palms.
- Scrunch the gel into your hair near the roots and work it down through your hair, using most of the gel near your scalp. (Optional: If you wish for a more structured look, you may comb your hair at this point to style it.)
- Repeat the first two steps as often as you need to. You want the top of your hair to look wet and the bottom of your hair to look as though it is dry or drying naturally. This is to mimic your hair drying on its own after being wet.
- Once you have applied enough gel to create this look and have scrunched (or combed) your hair into a style you like, just leave it alone. This will give the gel time to harden. You want the gel to keep it’s wet look, so don’t brush or comb your hair out any further. Try to keep your fingers out of your hair for as long as you want this style to last or you will risk drying out the wet gel look.
- This is one of those hairstyles for wavy hair that totally suits this hair type and looks gorgeous. All lengths of hair and all types of haircuts for wavy hair will work fine to create the Gym Sleek look. This fad is especially suited for short hairstyles for thick, wavy hair, as it is much more managable to work with the styling gel on short hair.
Ponytails in general are popular now. Although the Perfect Middle Part Ponytails are the highlight of this trend, pretty much any style of ponytail is in fashion and being seen on the runways at the biggest fashion shows. The multi-tied ponytail in the picture above is another example of hairstyles for thick, wavy hair that can easily be copied. Simply brush your hair back and tie it into the usual ponytail, then tie more sections off, making the sections as close to the same length as possible. If you create this look while your hair is wet, you will end up with an opulent wavy texture to your hair when it dries and you remove all the ties. Wavy hairstyles are all the rage currently, and are exquisite when your hair is thick.
Here once again, we have an example of combining some of these hot trends in the picture above. This ponytail has been created after teasing up the back of the hair at the crown for the 60’s Mod look and the ponytail itself has been teased to add volume and make it appear as though she has thick, wavy hair. You may not need to tease your ponytail if your hair is already this type, as you will have the look of thick, wavy hair already. Ponytails are easy, quick hairstyles for women that are wonderful for women on the go and the fast paced lifestyles today. They are a great way to look pulled together and to keep your hair in place while at work, play or just relaxing.
Loose Bohemian Wave
Aishwarya Rai is sporting the chic trend of the Loose Bohemian Wave in the photo above. Hairstyles for thick, wavy hair include this very natural look. Rather than creating a tight Bohemian Wave, this style calls for looser curls and waves, something that women with thick, wavy hair are already blessed with. To achieve this look, the best haircuts for wavy hair would be layered to release more curl or all one length for long, gorgeous hair.
This is another outstanding example of the Loose Bohemian Wave hairstyle trend in the photo above. If your hair is not this curly, you can use curlers or a curling iron to create this style. The secret is to not brush out your hair after you have curled it, but rather run your fingers through it gently to loosen and separate the curls to create the waves. This look does not take long to achieve at all.
Layered haircuts for thick, wavy hair are one of the best methods for showing off your natural curls and waves. These styles also help to lighten your hair, as thick hair can weigh quite a bit. If you have ever had thick, long hair and then decided to cut it short, you would immediately feel the weight come off and your head feel lighter in weight. Short hairstyles for thick, wavy hair always include the layered look. With the hair layered in this cut, it gives you a head full of curls and waves, as each layer is a new layer of curls. This is a great way to add sexy volume to your hair and enhance your naturally, beautiful hair.
Layered haircuts for thick, wavy hair are great at any length, not just for short hair. The medium length hairstyle above is a gorgeous look and a wonderful way to show off larger curls and waves. Layered haircuts are the ideal partner for this type of hair as they perfectly enhance the wavy nature and volume you are already gifted with.
