#2: Loose Bun on Thick Hair

This hairstyle is suitable for when you want to get on a horse. A simple way to wear a low bun with thick hair is by twisting a ponytail into one big twist. Secure the bun in place with bobby pins. If you like a fuller bun, use your index and thumb to pinch some parts of your bun. This creates some pull and adds volume. If you want a slightly undone look, leave some face-framing and nape-framing tendrils.

Hairstyles for Every Length

Kunesh says, “All hair types and lengths can rock the cowgirl look.” Long hair fits the image best because it can be easily tied back. This is useful when doing outdoor activities. For a touch of the Wild West, add a braid to any hair length. It adds texture and makes a statement. You can try different braids on medium-length hair or even on a short bob. Kunesh notes, “With a short bob, a cowgirl hat completes the look perfectly.”

The Right Accessories Make the Hairstyle

When it comes to cowgirl hairstyles, accessories play a big role. “Hats are key,” Kunesh points out. A classic cowboy hat from Resistol or American Hat Co. is perfect. For a personal touch, try a custom hat. Ball caps with Western designs are also popular. Kunesh’s favorite accessory is a wild rag or silk scarf. It’s versatile and can be used in many ways, from a head wrap to a braid accent. Authentic American Indian jewelry adds a special touch to any hairstyle.

Styling Tips and Product Recommendations

For hairstyles that last all day, Kunesh advises, “Use your hair as an expression of your style.” These hairstyles are made to last through all activities, from rodeos to daily chores. Keeping your hair healthy is crucial. Kunesh loves Oribe Super Shine Cream for smoothing hair and IGK Best Life Oil for adding shine. These products also protect your hair from the elements, ensuring your hairstyle stays perfect all day.
