Middle Part

The Mexican middle part look is best for guys with thick hair. Work some pomade through your hair and part it down the middle. Brush it on either side for a wavy, flowy effect. It is excellent for men who don’t look good in side part haircuts.

Textured Quiff

Quiff can make hair look like one solid mass. Textured quiffs help prevent that and they are great for managing thick hair. You will need some hair clay or pomade to achieve this look-avoid gel, making your hair look slick or wet.
