5 Low Maintenance Hairstyles For Thick Wavy Hair – If you have thick wavy hair, I’m sure you’re pretty used to getting compliments on it.

But just because your hair is gorgeous doesn’t mean that it’s easy to deal with. Thick wavy hair can be a bit of a lot to manage, especially if you don’t know how to style it properly.

That’s why today we’re going to talk about some low-maintenance hairstyles for thick wavy hair that will make styling even easier than usual!

5 Low Maintenance Hairstyles For Thick Wavy Hair

Loose waves

Loose waves are romantic, soft curls that fall loosely around your face. They look great on any face shape and can be achieved with a curling iron or wand.

The key to creating these loose waves is to not overdo it. Let the natural movement of your hair do its thing while you’re styling it.

Also, make sure to use a hair serum after you wash your hair—it will keep those loose waves soft and shiny!

Textured braid

The textured braid is a classic and low-maintenance hairstyle. It’s perfect for thick, wavy hair because it’s easy to create and will last all day.

To start, part your hair down the middle and into three sections.

Then take one section at a time and braid it in whichever way you prefer—braids can be done tightly or loosely depending on how much volume you want to add to your hair.

Once all three braids are complete, tie them off with an elastic band at the end of each braid so they stay put in place while you finish styling them into place!

Once they are all tied off, pull apart each individual braid so that they begin to form waves or curls along the length of each strand (this is where they get their texture).

French twist

If you’re looking for a style that doesn’t require a lot of upkeep, the french twist is your go-to.

This classic look can be worn with or without a headband, scarf, headwrap or turban. To achieve this look:

  • Section off your hair into three sections (top front section, side section and bottom back).
  • Take your top front section and starting from below the ear line start twisting it up toward the back of the head until it reaches about eye level. If desired pull out any loose ends that may hang out at the end of each twist to create additional volume.

To secure in place use bobby pins along the perimeter of each twist making sure not to pin them right against each other so they don’t show through when styled in place.

Messy bun

This hairstyle is easy to do on your own and requires only a few minutes. It’s also an attractive look for any occasion, from the office to a night out with friends!

To make a high messy bun, first gather all of your hair into one hand. Then twist it and pull upwards so that it forms a mini-bun at the top of your head.

Secure this with bobby pins or hair pins (or even better yet, try our new Velcro stick ’em clips). You can also add some small pieces of hair here and there as well if you’d like!

For the low messy bun, simply grab all of the top layer of hair and twist it around itself until it makes a nice little poofy ball at the bottom part of your neckline.

Secure with bobby pins or hair clips like before if needed before letting loose again!

If needed for extra security in either style above then use Velcro stick ’em clips instead because they’re super cute as well as functional!


To create a topknot, start with your hair in a ponytail. Then, take the tail and wrap it around itself to create the bun shape you’re going for. Secure that with a hair tie of your choice!

If you want to make a bun, secure all of your hair into one ponytail using an elastic band at the base of your neck.

Next up: Take three fingers worth of hairs (you can use more if you have more length) and twist them tightly away from your head until they meet up with their friends hanging out on top of said ponytail.

Create this braid by wrapping it around itself—twice is usually enough—and secure each end with another elastic band or two if needed!

To make a French twist, begin by gathering all of your thick wavy locks into one section at the nape of your neck (just above where its natural part would be).

Next up: Take four strands about as wide as those sitting underneath them on either side and gently pull them down overtop before securing everything together under an elastic band at the backside closest to where we started working from earlier today.


If you have thick wavy hair, you have a few low-maintenance hairstyles that can help. The best thing about these hairstyles is that they are easy to style and maintain.

You will not need to use any product on your hair every day or spend a lot of time styling it.

We hope you enjoyed exploring our favorite low maintenance hairstyles for thick wavy hair. Now that you’ve got your next look in mind, it’s time to get styling!
