1. Canary yellow & orange color on messy short haircut – hairstyles for thick hair
Cute and playful – this canary yellow cut with orange roots is an eye-catching, fantasy hair color and cut, that just radiates happy vibes. The stylist has created a super-casual hairstyle, with choppy layers that look shaggy and relaxed. In particular, the styled-forward fringe makes a thick, deep feature and an uneven frame for the eyes. With hair pushed behind one ear, you get a pretty glimpse of orange roots at the side. And the choppy ends at the roots flip out to balance the unruly fringe!
2. Makeover to beige-blonde pixie cut – hairstyles for thick hair
This sweet, short cut is easy to wash, dry and style for a quick start to the day. And although it is a short cut, the effect is soft and face flattering. And that’s owed to the long, defined strands creating a lovely fringe that skims the eyebrows. The textured sides have layers cut to accentuate the eyes and cheekbones, whilst covering the ears. With a fabulous warm beige-blonde shade, this asymmetric pixie cut will stay in style all day and flatter a round or heart-shaped face perfectly.
3. Glamorous short bob hairstyles for thick hair
Curved, sweeping fringes are always a glamorous look, as they offer super-cool, casual style to your overall image. And this style has a strong shape with a short layered back section, and a cute, pointed line at the nape. The asymmetry comes from a blurred side part, with one side tucked neatly behind the ear to show a lovely rounded profile at the back. And the strong shape is softened by wispy side tresses, the curvy fringe and gorgeous, blonde highlights.
4. Choppy chin-length inverted bob with baby-blue balayage – hairstyles for thick hair
This beautiful, blonde inverted bob hangs just below chin-length, and has a centre-part suitable for an oval face. It’s a length that flatters lots of face shapes and with textured, choppy tips it projects a super, modern vibe. But when you add the fabulous 4-color hair-color design, it moves up to a truly eye-catching high-fashion look! Dark-blonde/taupe roots gently change to golden-beige and cool, oat-blonde mixing up warm and cool shades. And subtle, blue-glaze on the lower lengths is the perfect way to accentuate blue eyes!
5. Authentic 60’s pixie-cut in beige baby-blonde
Here’s an easy-style short haircut for medium to thick hair types. And the 60’s cut has been brought right up to the minute with a soft, pinky-beige blonde color all-over. The back is buzz-cut to give a nape-hugging curve. And this is balanced by a short, forward-swept fringe that highlights the eyes. The sides feature pretty, defined points that complete the eye-framing hairstyle. And this style is a great way to get texture and volume on straight hair.
6. Micro-fringe brunette short hairstyle
This beautifully cut short pixie hairstyle for thick hair shapes and controls thick hair, making it easy to wash, dry and style quickly. The sweeping line moving from side to side, via the forehead makes a fabulous fashion statement and focuses attention on shapely brows and lovely brown eyes. It’s not too severe around the ears, as the hair is styled to only reveal the lobes and your choice of trendy earrings. And by sweeping the hair forward from the crown you get extra volume, texture and movement on straight hair.
7. Edgy short beige-blonde bob with nape detail
When you have a buzzed or shaved nape, it’s hard to stop it showing your natural hair color and keep it matching the main blonde shade. So why bother? This stylist has left the shaped nape in its original brunette shade, and made it an edgy feature. So you get great pattern and color definition decorating the back. The crown is shaped in defined, ‘chrysanthemum petals’ creating a lovely round volume and texture. And the long, asymmetric fringe adds glamor and a flirty, peek-a-boo image!
8. Tousled brunette pixie with soft orange-blonde highlights
Thick, curly hair can be very wayward and hard to control when it’s long, but it looks fabulous in a short, cropped style. This layered look can be styled with your fingers and will stay looking cute and trendy all day. The special features are the soft, wispy strands in the fringe and sides, brought forward to frame the eyes and cheekbones. And the straight-across line at the nape, which continues up and around the ears for that cheeky, elfin vibe! Just add trendy, light-copper-blonde highlights to add extra texture and movement!
9. Precision-cut short asymmetrical haircut in golden-blonde
These four images show what a beautifully varied short hairstyle this is! The two sides are asymmetrical, making this a great look for a round or heart-shaped face. The shorter side features a blunt point and there’s a line of ‘undercut’ hair moving around the back to the other profile. The blurred side-part has a long, side-swept fringe covering half of the forehead. And the stylist has arranged the crown into defined, chrysanthemum petals radiating out in soft, golden blonde over darker roots!
10. Stunning curved contour lines on tousled pixie style
And the final finishing touch to today’s gallery of short hairstyles for thick hair is this lovely contrast style. The photographer chose to shoot this haircut in black-and-white to bring out the dark/light hair color and the straight/curly creative contrasts. And another fabulous feature of this cut is the trend-setting curved line arcing up from a precision-cut single point at the nape. This is a 3-point haircut with its roots in the 1960’s, but brought beautifully up to date with the inspired curved line and a dainty, tousled and highlighted top!
