/ 04.23.2015

Styling thick hair comes with its own set of challenges, but when you master a cute look, you realize just how much you love your full-bodied, voluminous mane. So, if you're looking for some new and exciting ways to style abundant tresses, check out the gorgeous 'dos below.

1. Wavy low ponytail

With thick hair, ponytails never fall flat and there are plenty of strands to work with, so adding beautiful details isn't a problem! Curl the ends for added texture, and use a small-ish piece to camouflage the hair tie for a super pretty look.

Styling tip

Before blow-drying your hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream throughout. This will keep your mane flyaway-free, giving you smooth, manageable locks to work with when creating a pony.

2. Voluminous updo

When life gives you thick hair, make awesome updos. Thanks to all that god given volume, naturally thick haired gals can whip up a gorgeous chignon in no time. All you need to do is sweep your hair back, arrange it into a bun or French twist, secure with bobby pins et voilà, awesome updo complete!

Styling tip

Mist your finished style with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to protect against frizz-inducing humidity.

3. Braided pigtails

Textured, braided pigtails are a great way to control a lot of natural volume, while using it to your advantage. The thickness of the hair ensures the braids appear full yet soft, and any loose, wispy ends will add only to the bohemian vibe of this look.

Styling tip

After finishing with Bold Control Hairspray, roll the braids between your palms to soften the edges.

4. High bun updo

With thick hair, there is absolutely no need to use a bun maker insert to create a well rounded donut shape, so you can just gather your hair into a high pony, twist it, pin it, and go!

Styling tip

Before putting your hair up, spritz it with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and tame flyaways.

5. Voluminous blowback

Whenever you want a hairstyle that is guaranteed to make an impact, own your natural volume with a full-bodied blowback. It's the perfect 'do for a dramatic night out look, or for anytime when you want to feel like Jennifer Lopez.

Styling tip

Reduce drying time by applying Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray to start. Rough-dry with only your blowdryer and your hands to eliminate most of the moisture (about 80%) before switching to a round brush to complete the blowout.
