In the Thick of It: 3 Fancy Hairstyles for Thick Hair

In the Thick of It: 3 Fancy Hairstyles for Thick Hair As host to a rather large amount of hair, I’ve had my fair share of coiffure conundrums over the years. Whether I was eschewing the dreaded ringlet for my senior prom, or wrangling my mop into a behemothic beehive for my wedding, I did my best to bypass the typical, opting instead for something more unique. So, when a request rolled in from a ModCloth Style Ambassador seeking formal up-do ideas for thick hair, I leapt at the opportunity to solve her hairstyle headache! Whether you’re prepping for prom, flying to Fashion Week, or simply seeking a new way to tame your mane, the three thick-hair-friendly styles below not only all use the same tools, but can be easily crafted to suit any occasion. The kicker? Each one can also be altered to suit ladies with manes of lesser proportions!
By Jaime Morrison Curtis | If there is anything that gets abandoned in the morning it would have be my hair, and more often than not a hat or ponytail has become the solution to this problem. I’d love to say that it’s just the morning rush that makes me not want to style it, but even on date nights I’m known to just let it hang. In order to break this hair slump I’ve promised myself to put in 10 minutes of extra hairstyling effort every day.

...love Maegan: Hanging Chains Headband DIY | Fashion | DIY | Lifestyle

While browsing Topshop last week, I came across this fun hanging chains headband and thought with Coachella right around the corner, an easy DIY for something similar would be fun. I used an old plastic zig zag stretchy comb headband I’ve had for years because it was the most logical choice to hang chains from but you can use an elastic band in a similar way. The chains disappear a little in my blonde hair but they would stand out really pretty agains brunette locks {it would also look great on a shorter cut as well}. If you’re super crafty, add a feather or bead/charm to the bottom of a few chains.
If you follow me on Instagram you already know about this because I shared it there see photos below but the other night I slept on twisted buns to get these BIG CURLS just to switch it up a little which the husband LOVES. In fact he said “You know, you could do that MORE OFTEN if you wanted to”. Big curls are a BIG hit around here ;) No Heat SJP BIG CURLS w/ Twisted Buns ...also known as Bantu Knots
