If you haven’t noticed previously, please take note that Hispanic people are some of the most beautiful human beings on the planet, and that includes both men and women. However, it’s important to keep in mind that people of Hispanic descent usually have unique hair, as it tends to be thick, full, and sometimes difficult to manage. This can make it difficult at times to find a hairstyle that works. That being said, there are plenty of great options available for both Hispanic men and women. Here are 45 great haircuts for Hispanic hair.
Short and Layered
For Hispanic women, going short with your hair should not be a problem just as long as you keep things layered. Having thick, dark hair can sometimes make it difficult, but with some styling, you can make it work and look fantastic.
This hairstyle has its roots in Europe, but there’s no reason why a lot of Hispanic women can’t steal it. For Hispanic women who have straight and sleek hair, cutting things short can be a great look, as it’s almost made for women with dark hair.
You should never be afraid to show off your bangs. In fact, if you’re a Hispanic woman with long, flowing hair, highlighting your bangs in an obvious way is a great tactic for keeping all the attention on your face.
Side Swept Bangs
If you like your bangs but don’t want to go through the fuss of trying to keep them in one place, just let them hang in front and swipe them to the side. Yes, your long, thick hair may fall in front of your eyes from time to time, so you’ll have to keep pushing them aside, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Your bangs hanging down in front of your eyes can add just a little bit of mystery to your look, which can sometimes be good.
Long and Wavy
For many Hispanic men, letting your hair grow out can be the way to go, and if it ends up getting out of control, so be it. This look is rugged and edgy, so if you can get your hair to grow long and wavy, go for it. It’ll take some upkeep, but once you get it right it looks great.
Unless you’re a serious romantic, you probably shouldn’t attempt this hairstyle. With long, flowing locks that practically cascade to your shoulder, this haircut is for confident men who know what they want and know how to get it. It’s not easy to pull off, but it’s a great look if you’ve got the personality to match.
Trust us, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with cutting it all off and going with a buzz cut, especially if you know that it’s probably going to grow back. Lack of hair can be a fashion statement like anything else, and obviously, it’s going to be easy to manage on a daily basis, so Hispanic men should not overlook the buzz cut as an option, at least every now and then.
You can call it a ponytail, a man bun, or anything else, but if you have long, thick hair, it should be considered an option. Yes, it’ll attract some haters, but there will also be plenty of people who love the look. So, if you’re okay with mixed reviews, feel free to turn that long hair into a man bun.
For many Hispanic women, shoulder length hair with some layering can be the perfect look. It’s a classic hairstyle that doesn’t take much work and should be acceptable in just about any setting. When in doubt, just go with something traditional that you know will work.
This hairstyle is definitely going to attract some interest. It goes without saying that you’ll need massive amounts of hair to put together this donut bun, but if you’re unsure of what to do with all that hair, why not try to make sure it all stays in one place. If nothing else, it’ll keep your hair out of your face, so at least some people will focus on that, although more realistically, everyone will be looking at the glamorous donut bun at the top of your head.
One possible solution for managing thick, dark hair is putting it in braids. There are a wide variety of things to do once you put your hair in braids, but leaving a few loose strands in front to help frame your face is always a viable option if you don’t want all the attention to go to your braids.
This is definitely more of a long-term solution more so than something you want to just try out for a weekend. That being said, tight braids that almost resemble dreadlocks can be a great idea for a Hispanic woman with long hair who doesn’t want to bother styling it on a daily basis. With the right attitude, this can be a wonderful and long-lasting look.
You should never shy away from experimenting with different colors, especially nowadays. If you’re too apprehensive to alter the color of your hair completely, adding a few streaks can be a great way to experiment or ease into the change. Colors like blue, purple, and red, especially in darker shades, are perfect for complementing dark Hispanic hair.
Sleek and Straight
Even if you don’t have naturally straight hair, there are ways that you can create a look that’s sleek and shiny. Once you get everything straightened out, literally, just let your hair fall the way it may and check out how glamorous you can look with this hairstyle.
Part into Ponytail
This is another hairstyle that looks elegant but is so simple to pull off. Just part all of your hair over to one side or another and put it into a side ponytail that hangs off your shoulder. It’s a look that’s easy to cultivate and will have you looking like a million bucks.
It can be tough to walk around proud with curly hair; the trick is to just embrace it. Just make sure your curls are neatly trimmed and styled properly so you can show them off with confidence.
Technically, this haircut is called the pompadour, but we like to think of it as the modern day Zack Morris. Just take that thick, curly hair and drown it with hair gel until it sticks up in front. Of course, it also helps to have a confident personality to go along with it, or else you’re never going to pull it off.
Sometimes, there’s just nothing that can be done about curly hair. However, there is a way to make those curls work in your favor by making sure they’re well organized and styled appropriately. In fact, if you want to steer into the skid completely, you can try to make your hair as curly as possible. Just fully commit to your curls and you should be satisfied with the results.
This is definitely more like it: a classic bob but with a little twist because the hair is cut at an angle. The angled bob takes a more conservative haircut and adds a bit of flair to it that really makes it stand out in a crowd.
Not everyone is going to be able to pull off the side shaved look, but if you’re feeling adventurous, it may be worth a try. If you have hair that’s otherwise long and sleek it’ll be difficult to shave off an entire side, but doing so just might be crazy enough to work.
Short But Wavy
Cutting your hair short doesn’t mean you can’t have some wave and volume in it. As long as you don’t cut it too short, most Hispanic women have enough hair to add some waves or some volume, even if their hair doesn’t quite make it to their shoulders.
Again, cutting your hair short doesn’t mean you can’t have some curls and some depth to it. In fact, flipping everything up above the forehead with some curls is a great way to convey both class and wisdom but still look your best.
For Hispanic women who have nothing but curls, just let them flow. Sometimes, less is more, so just let your curls loose and let them blow around in the wind.
Adding colorful streaks is one thing, but adding blonde highlights is a whole different animal for Hispanic women with dark hair. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a try. With the right shade of blonde, the contrast between that blonde and your natural hair color can be utterly brilliant. If you give it a try, it could turn out to be far better than you expected.
This is yet another twist on the traditional bob look; this one is a bob with curls. Bobs are typically straight, but if you’re born with curly hair, there’s no sense in fighting it. Instead, embrace the curls with your bob cut and give yourself a haircut that feels as good as it looks.
Let It Flow
When your hair gets to a certain length, sometimes the best thing you can do is just let it flow. If you take good care of it, hopefully, you can get your hair to have a nice shine to it, which will make it all the better when it’s hanging off your shoulder and down your back without a care in the world.
Seriously, how adorable is this haircut? It doesn’t take itself too seriously and it doesn’t care if things get a little out of place. It’s just fun, fashionable, and lets the hair relax and do its own thing. If only everything were that easy, right?
This is a classic look for women of any culture, Hispanic women especially. This is a great look because it brings bangs into the equation and also allows for a little bit of a frame around the face. Yes, there’s a little bit of work involved in this kind of haircut, but don’t try to tell us this hairstyle wouldn’t look beautiful on anybody.
Nothing But Bangs
Sometimes, not always, but sometimes you just want to show the world that you have bangs, and there’s nothing wrong with that. If you have long, sleek hair, sometimes going with long bangs and even longer hair cascading down the sides can be a brilliant, fashion-forward look.
We know you can’t do it every day, but let’s be honest, crimped hair looks utterly amazing on almost anyone. We can’t quite put our finger on why, but there’s something about crimped hair that just drives us crazy in a good way. For Hispanic women with dark, thick hair, crimping your hair is definitely something to do on special occasions; it’s a special look.
