After being understandably denied the salon experience these last few months, it makes sense that scheduling in an appointment with our favourite hairdresser has become a priority, and will mark the first time that most of us will have had a trim since the start of the year.
Much like actresses who contractually agree to keep their hair long for recurring roles – think Emma Watson, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lawrence, and Emilia Clarke, to name a few – it seems that, now we have the green light to switch-up our hair, we’re fully embracing the opportunity by opting for dramatically shorter styles.
Spoiler alert: shorter hair doesn’t necessarily mean its easier to manage—particularly if you’re blessed with a head of thick hair, too. However, if you select your cut wisely, it can literally lift a weight off your shoulders and cut down on maintenance time, too. So, which short hairstyles for think hair work best? We consulted with Nicholas Hardwick, principal stylist at Josh Wood Colour, and Amir Mayha, co-owner and director of Aer Blowdry Bar, to discover their recommended short hairstyles for thick hair. See what they had to say below.
