Want to keep your thick hair in check, while keeping some length? One way is with the classic longer layers cut. First, the sides and back are trimmed. Then the top is cut with a scissors-and-comb cutting technique. Finally, it's joined with the sides and back. Clean and trim without being boring, long layers offer a number of styling options so you can change up the look with the help of a product or two.
Apply Redken Guts 10 Volumizing Foam to damp hair, then use a firm bristle brush while blow drying, pulling the hair in the opposite direction that you want it to fall.
For a second look, apply Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam to damp hair, then brush hair over to the side and let it air dry.
