Got Thick Hair? These Hairstyles Will Suit You

It's funny how we get things stuck in our minds, like the idea that if you've got thick hair you have to have long hair. It's not, you just need to find the right haircut for your hair. And right now it seems like all the coolest people are going for the chop these days, but while it's tempting to follow suit, those of us with thick hair have to take pause.

It's all a matter of smart layering and selecting a cut that works particularly well with your thicker strands. And for that, you needn't look any further than these five haircuts, which happen to be incredibly cool, in addition to practical. Just get your phone ready, because we have a feeling you'll want to book a salon appointment immediately.
