Summer Hair Styling Tips For Thick Hair

Styling thick hair in the summer brings its own share of unique challenges from non-stop sweating on sunny days, giant frizzy hair from humidity, to hair styles that don’t make it past noon.

Use our summer hair styling tips, paired with the Belisa cordless hair tools, to make styling stress-free!


Don’t want to chop your hair for the summer? You don’t need to! An undercut will shave off a section by your nape and will keep you cool, sweat free without sacrificing any length.

An undercut may seem drastic, but it can work for normal life! Keep your undercut undercover at your day job by leaving hair down. Or use it as a stylish statement by wearing hair up in a bun or ponytail. If you want to take it up a notch, experiment with colour or embed a design into your undercut.

The undercut can also make styling easier by eliminating sections you’d need to style! Keep your undercut looking good with regular maintenance and salon appointments!


If an undercut isn’t in the cards for you this summer, ask your stylist to cut the weight out of your hair. This will thin hair allover your head.

If you want to have more movement in your hairstyle, talk to your stylist about texturizing your hair. This will thin out sections of your hair to create body and make styling at home a lot easier!


The Belisa cordless hair tools have titanium components, from the titanium barrels in the Belisa Cordless Curling Iron With Clip and Belisa Cordless Curling Wand to the titanium plates in the Belisa Cordless Flat Iron.

Titanium is a great conductor of heat, reaching higher temperatures quickly and evenly heat styling hair. Our Belisa Cordless Flat Iron can reach a maximum temperature of 420ºF within 60 seconds and our Belisa Cordless Curling Iron With Clip and Belisa Cordless Curling Wand curl hair at a maximum temperature of 400ºF. Thick hair can typically stand higher temperatures, but don’t use the maximum temperatures if you don’t need to.

Styling thick hair with a higher temperature catered to your strands is a better choice for heat styling. Not only can you cut down on heat damage, by styling your hair effectively, you’re also cutting down on styling time. A welcome fringe benefit for summer styling!

And since all the Belisa hair styling tools are cordless, these tools are great to touch up on the run!


Find a hairspray that gives you firm hold without the crunchy feeling. A good firm hold hairspray will also keep hair from frizzing in summer humidity.

And hairspray isn’t just for heat styling! If you want to air dry hair without the frizz, spray a bit of hairspray onto your brush and brush through damp hair.
