7. Choppy Lob with Face-Framing Layers. Stylists often recommend choosing longer haircuts for thick wavy hair since extra length helps weigh hair down and tame the frizz. Take this charming lob as inspiration and use its face-framing magic to emphasize or mask certain facial features.

12. Long Blonde Balayage hair. Create a fairytale princess look with a layered, wavy haircut for your long locks. You’ll get an elegant and natural style in a blink of an eye.

18. Piece-y Bob with Warm Balayage. If you don’t like super choppy haircuts for wavy hair but still want to rock plenty of texture, you can opt for a softer version of a shaggy bob and add subtle highlights to create a play of color in your waves.

19. Long Wavy Hairstyle. Balayage hairstyles always look fantastic on long layered hair. They tend to give your strands a particular and irreplaceable shine, movement and dimension.

20. Long Thick Style with Highlights. While long thick hair looks too heavy and immovable, a balayage hairstyle with choppy ends and quick waves is quite the opposite!

22. Wavy Highlights. Women with thick hair will love this layered haircut with highlights. Let your hair cascade on your back for a more impressive look.

26. Thick Shaggy Bob. This hairdo is one of the most flattering hairstyles for thick wavy hair. To create this look, ask your stylist to tone your hair to achieve a cherry or mahogany shade and go for uneven layered wavy locks.

27. Medium Wavy Hair with Bounce. Long wavy haircuts aren’t always the best choice for ladies with thick manes since the excessive weight may strip even ample locks of their bounce. The below-the-shoulder lob with a bit of layering to the ends fixes the problem with no sweat.
