Of course, the easiest way to control very thick hair is to simply cut it short. A shorter length can be a great option for those looking for a low-maintenance style. Depending on how it's cut, a shorter hair still leaves room for endless styling options. "Textured, shorter cuts work best for thick hair. When you texturize the hair with scissors, you’re removing bulk that many clients with thick hair do not want. It also lends itself to more edgier looks, which I love," says White.
