In my humble opinion, mid-length hair is the most versatile hair length. You can do absolutely any style with no strands left behind, unless of course you are leaving out tendrils on purpose. I also happen to think that thick hair is the most versatile texture— but this is without doubt with the bias of having naturally super-thick hair myself. So, the combo of both is kind of spectacular in my eyes. Do not get me wrong, I have spent years cursing the fact that my hair has broken multiple stylists’ combs and takes a long time to straighten, but now with acceptance I know it also means that there aren’t many problems with any style I attempt.
I do find that I get stuck in a real rut when thinking of styles though. On lazy weeks I just rotate two; down and un-styled or when it’s due a wash or it’s hot, I tie it back in a tight low bun. That’s it. I reserve trying a new ‘do’ to evening plans every so often. How boring when there are hundreds of styles at my disposal with this hair length and texture. So, after scouring the internet I’ve found a plethora of styles that look excellent with medium length thick hair so I have no excuses to not switch things up every now and again, and now neither do you.
