Check out our top 20 haircuts for men with thick hair to get right now.

Everyone wants thicker hair but when you have it, you have to know what to do with it.

Thick hair can be coarse or wavy in ways that make it harder to control. The right cut and style eliminate these issues while making the most of thick hair.

One of the benefits of thick hair is lots of hair to work with. That means lots of volume and hair to style any way that you like.

Any men’s hairstyle can work for thick hair from classic side parts to trendy textured crops. Spiky styles are also easy for this hair type and keep hair out of the eyes.
