I have the same hairtype as you – extremely thick and wavy. I haven’t really got any great ideas though, sice I have been growing my hair out for the last 1 1/2 years. I am looking so, so much forward to my PWC!

See maybe if they can shape it a little more into a bob? Then you can maybe try to straighten it when it’s not too humid out, and when it is humid, use curl product and let it go wavy!

I have the same type of hair, and that’s what I’m hoping to do!

Layers layers layers!!! Tell them where you want your longest layer, and let them chop from there. Also, you can ask a stylist to thin your hair, which makes it much more managable.

As far as humidity goes, try using John Frieda’s Frizz Ease secret weapon. It’s a bit expensive, but it works wonders!!

I have thick, coarse wavy hair. Right now it’s to my shoulders, layered with bangs. I blow it out straight, but not stick straight. The layers are very important to keep it from puffing out and to make it easy to dry. And I think that bangs might look really good on a long, thin face.

I just looked all over for a photo but I can’t find a good recent one.

 ETA: Here’s one.

I have thick wavy hair as well and for my PWC I went with layers, side-swept bangs and the stylist suggested majorly thinning out my hair and it ended up great. Now when it’s humid it curls really nicely but when I want to straighten it it also looks good.  Do you have an Ulta near you? That’s where I went and the stylist was fabulous. I didn’t take any pictures in I just told her what I wanted and she talked to me about it throughout the whole cut. Good luck!

Sideswept bangs kind of blend a little more with layers, imo. I was scared to get bangs as well but the sideswept look really worked for me, here’s some pictures I just googled. If you want some more examples just google side swept bangs if you wwant some more.

Hair twin, I say! My plan is to go with side-swept bangs and a layered, wavy cut. Sort of like Ms Knightley in the above photo, or like Heidi Klum here:
