Hi, my name is Krista, and I'm a beauty stylist in Tampa, Florida, and today I'm going to talk about easy ways to style your thick hair. For this, you're going to need bobby pins and that's it. So let's go ahead and get started. Okay, so a couple ways that I like to style my thick hair, for one I like to take from about the end of my eyebrows up. So basically, your bang area, or if you don't have bangs, whatever you have and this is quick. This is an easy way to wake up, get ready in the morning and it kind of looks like you put a little bit of effort into it. So, you take it like that, and you can also tease right there if you want to, you can tease the bang if you need to get that little bit of poof but since you have thick hair, I don't think you will and you'll take one bobby pin from one side and then another bobby pin from the other side, crisscross it making an X and that's one way to style your thick hair. Another thing that I really like to do is if I'm in a rush in the morning, bring my hair over to one side and sometimes if your hair is too thick, sometimes you can part it into two braids, like one on one side and one on the other but I like to just do one messy braid to the side. And then when I get to the bottom, sometimes I don't have a ponytail, but I have a comb, so I just like to tease those ends right up. So, you're going to hold the bottom very taut, take your comb and just kind of tease it up and then you can texture your braid a little, pull at it. It doesn't have to be neat. So, those are two easy ways to style thick hair. My main tool that I used today was my bobby pin. I hope this helps you create your style at home. My name is Krista.
