It also works great with any texture – straight, wavy, or curly. If you don’t have much time but love experimenting with color, this balayage idea is a great way to refresh your look.

If you don’t want to invest much time in hairstyling, this beautiful, elegant hairdo option will suit you perfectly. The shaggy inverted balayage bob is as effortless as it gets. All you have to do is pay a visit to your hairdresser every month or two for dye and trim to freshen up your look.

6. Messy Bob Hairstyle. A neck-length bob with beach waves is the flawless look for your type of hair. It’s refined, yet messy, with lots of volume.

7. Waves and Face-Framing. Here is a tip on adding layers to your type of hair — get a couple of feathered pieces along the face and let them melt into the short bouncy layers on the bottom.

8. Brunette Shag with Highlights. The razor-cut layers of this hairstyle kill two birds with one stone since they reduce the excessive weight of the thick mane and add texture emphasized by soft highlights.

9. Hair with Balayage. If you’re aiming for a romantic vibe, there is nothing better than a combination of a mid haircut and balayage. Besides, who doesn’t want to have sun-kissed hair for any season?

10. Grungy Haircut. For those who want something effortless and irresistible. You don’t have to burden your hair with styling mousses, use a curling iron, and brush it meticulously. A monthly visit to a good hairdresser is enough to maintain this fresh, daring look.

11. Midi Shag Haircut. Shaggy cuts are ideal for those with very thick, coarse hair, as the layering removes the bulk that weighs locks down.

12. Choppy Bi-Level Cut. While layers cut at the chin level create volume on the top, combining them with choppy strands on the bottom results in tons of texture.

13. Wavy Haircut. Take advantage of your dense locks and add more texture with soft waves. You’ll never look dull, especially when you add some gorgeous highlights! Go rock n’ roll or go sweet; you can never go wrong with this!

14. Brunette Hair. Magnify the waves of your locks with lovely teasy lights. Opt for choppy layers to wear your modern waves loose or sweep them up into a sassy updo.

15. Blonde Balayage. This is one of the best hairstyles blending low-maintenance and chic. Look fresh and stylish like you’ve never been before with a blonde balayage. Ace every look with this ideal combo!

16. Long Textured Bob. With the help of wispy layers starting at the mids of this vanilla blonde lob, it gets a soft textured look and a rounded shape flattering for the narrow face.

17. Choppy Balayaged Lob. It never hurts to add some dimension and shimmer of light to dark dense locks because brunette hair is innately less light-reflective than blonde manes.

18. Layered Hairstyle. Make the shaggy layers pop with some subtle highlights. Add texture and life to your hair that may look seem heavy otherwise. You can never go wrong with this natural-looking style!

19. Wide Curtain Bangs. A long fringe trimmed, tapered, and parted wide in the middle to form the trendy curtain bangs is most becoming on midi locks. Your exposed forehead makes your hair less heavy-looking.

20. Vanilla Blonde Choppy Waves. Try a choppy long bob, one of the most haircuts for denser hair types. Want to add even more spice? Make everyone’s head turn with this vanilla blonde shade! Look sweeter with wavy hair and knock people off their feet wherever you go.

21. Lob with Swoopy Layers. This is the best example of ideal neck-length haircut for dense hair. Elegant, well-shaped, and the thickness is under control. The swoopy layers took this lob haircut away from the heavy triangle shape.

22 Haircut with Long Bangs. We like what her stylist did with her hair. The pouf created at the parting elongates her face, creating a slim silhouette that makes her dense hair look less overwhelming.

23. The ‘90s Blowout. This reddish brown hair is nicely volumized by a deep side part and a chic blowout, and it feels extremely lightweight thanks to feathery layers and flippy ends.

24. Graduated Bob. The bob haircut became fashionable in the early 1920s, and it’s still trending today. In addition to its exceptional aesthetic appeal, there is a practical explanation of its popularity: this elegant style looks great with any type of hair. A graduated bob is especially recommended for tired hair, giving it a flawless, groomed look.

25. Blunt Cut Lob. Getting pretty curtain bangs to go with your hair is a splendid idea. Curtain bangs perfectly complement hairstyles suited for dense hair. The middle part breaks down the blocky look of your hair. The choppy blunt edges of her haircut are another detail that you shouldn’t overlook.

26. Lightened Tips. Since a lighter shade placed at the ends makes your hair appear less heavy, highlights offer a great alternative to layering, more so if coupled with thinning out.

27. Boho-Style Haircut. Boho hairstyles are brilliant for creative souls. Long, carelessly loose hair is classic. Light waves or curls can add to your chic. Denser hair type is perfect for this boho style! Try braids, flowers, or feathers – the only limit is your imagination.
