When we talk about hair thickness and volume, most of us probably think of long wavy hair. This is not surprising as most of the hair care ads we are exposed to feature women with long locks as they swish their head from side to side making us believe gorgeous hair is all rather effortless.

As wonderful as all this is, we realise that long styles don’t suit everyone, there are plenty of women out there with beautifully thick shorter styles.

A few of you may be thinking “hang on, I thought short styles were only for people with thinner or fine hair.” This isn’t the case, there are many thicker short hair styles that are on trend right now and to show you how great they look, we have compiled a list of our favorites.

If you are looking for a full and bouncy hairstyle, you should go for the bob. This new bob hides the lower layers of the style as they are cut shorter. Whether you wear it slightly longer or have it rest delicately around the nape, this hairstyle always looks flawless. If you want something slightly more contemporary combine the cut with a shattered fringe.

#5 Angled Bob
