Waves add plenty of movement to thick hair and look effortlessly chic. Getting them is really easy and you don’t even have to use heat, which can fry your strands. To achieve this look, apply a salt spray to your hair to encourage the formation of waves and braid small sections. When your hair feels dry, release the braids and enjoy your look.

Taylor Swift’s Curls

Taylor Swift’s curls are iconic, and everyone wants to achieve the look. These curls are highly versatile and look great for any occasion. For this look, you’re going to need a ¾-inch curling iron, heat protectant, some hairspray and a few bobby pins. Start out with dry hair and generously apply heat protectant to the strands. Take the curling iron and wrap small sections of hair around it to create a very tight curl. The last step is to tease the crown of hair for volume and apply hairspray for hold.

Demi Lovato’s Bun

A high bun is a simple way to keep thick hair out of your face. For this look, you will need to have hair ties, a bun shaper, smoothing gel and hairspray. First, brush out your hair to remove unwanted tangles. Then, tie your hair into a high ponytail and slip it in the bun shaper. Once you’ve created the bun shape, apply hairspray and you’re good to go.

Ponytail thick hair

Eva Mendes’ Ponytail

A ponytail is an easy look for thick hair. To achieve Eva’s chic ponytail, back tease the hair at the crown. Then, scoop the hair into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic. The look works best when it’s a little messy, so pull out a few strands around the face and tease the ponytail at its base.

straight Layers thick hair

Ashley Tisdale’s Pin-straight Layers

Getting layers added to your mane is a fantastic way to give movement to your strands. Since thick hair has a tendency to pouf out on the ends, it’s recommended to get the layers thinned at the bottom so they hang just right. To style this look, start by parting your hair into a deep part. Using a flat iron, go over the ends and slightly twist the wrist to create a slight bend. Finish with hairspray to seal in the look.
