Short hair is everywhere and this bold hair trend is one that’s easy to follow. If you have thick hair then short hair can have countless advantages including: easy maintenance, less styling time, not as much hair to clog the drains, no tangles and knots, and less money on products. Short hair can look really great with thick hair and there is a lot of versatility and options from close crops, layered pixies and bobs, asymmetrical cuts, waves or a tousled texture and much more. When you’re choosing a short hairstyle you may want to consider your hairs natural texture, your face shape, and your lifestyle but here are some short cuts that are perfect for thick hair.
A Lengthy Crop Cut for Short Hair
Crops don’t always have to be close contact and short and if you have thick hair than it’s better to show off your healthy locks with a longer cut. A full pixie with long full side-swept bangs and subtle layering throughout the cut will work well with your thick hair type and it’s a flatting cut for most face shapes.
A Tousled Pixie for Thick Hair
The best pixies for thick hair are the ones with texture and show off the great volume and body of thick hair. By keeping your pixie slightly long and adding some gel to tousle the tips you can have a short thick hairstyle that can be edgy or feminine, whichever you prefer.
A Graduated Bob is Manageable
The graduated bob is when the hair is slightly shorter in the back and gradually gets longer towards the front. This is a great way for women with thick hair to keep the length in the front and the volume from thick hair in the back. Add a side-swept bang or a few subtle layers get a trendy short bob.
A Asymmetrical Bob
The asymmetrical bob is where you have shorter hair on one side but a longer sweep on the other. This is a great way to lighten up your heavy thick hair, have length for updo’s, hair accessories; hats, etc. but still have a short, manageable, and trendy hairstyle. This is a great for every hair texture too.
Wavy Chin-Skimming Bob
Women with thick hair usually have some natural waves and kinks so rather than fighting them with short hairstyles that require flat irons and blow dryers, embrace them with a wavy chin-length bob. You can add a subtle layer or too if you want but for wavy locks it’s best to keep them longer.
Full Crop for Thick Hair
Thick hair can pull off a full pixie hairstyle better than fine or thin hair. This look is perfect for somebody who doesn’t mind the maintenance of bangs but is ready for a chop. The short hairstyle still shows off the thick and healthy head of your hair you have but frees you from the thick mane.
