Short haircuts for thick hair are always the trendiest way to update your look for a special occasion or just start the new season feeling trendy. Short haircuts are a favorite starting point for hair/color designers for new techniques and colors every year. And their hard work is clearly paying off because more women than ever are opting for a cute short haircut!
So here’s our latest short hairstyles gallery showing just how varied and versatile they can be!
1. Rich copper steep-angled bob – cute short haircuts for thick hair
This haircut and color was first made famous by British singer and Beatles friend Cilla Black in the 1960s! It still looks fresh and modern! To update the look, the A-style bob is cut at a much sharper angle than the original, with the front layers falling below the collarbones.
But the back will just touch the shirt collar. The concave layering gives the back a nice curved volume. And you can vary the parting according to your face shape. Bright copper is the perfect color for this easy-care, simple cut!
2. Shaggy bob with defined waves – cute short haircuts for thick hair
Chopped layers on thick hair are a great way to get rid of those awful, bulky ends and give your hair a bouncy look. This trendy bob is an A-line cut with vertical balayage in caramel, honey and pale gold.
The tips are beautifully tapered to create an attractive, slim look. And the contoured strands are styled with a tousled finish that goes well with the shaggy haircut trend this season!
3. Soft fantasy lob with blue roots & green balayage – cute short haircuts for thick hair
This simple style is anything but simple with stunning color effects created by a talented colorist! Gorgeous bright blue roots blend beautifully into neutral blonde. And then the color fades into a fabulous blue-green ombre all the way down to choppy textured tips.
The center parting is perfect for an oval face, while the parted strands above the eyes draw attention to the model’s sweet blue-green eyes. If your colorist can perfectly match your hair color and highlights to your eye color, you’ve found a true expert!
4. Urban-style long pixie with side-swept bangs – cute short haircuts for thick hair
The overall theme is urban and contrasting, with black roots and platinum blonde. And the styling is daring, with sharp, semi-wavy strands and long bangs draped over one side. This ultra-casual look even features an unglamorous hair clip to help keep the shorter side behind your ear.
So you get asymmetries, strong color contrasts, and street glam/nonsense all in one youthful cut and color! An outstanding watch, ring and glamorous earrings complete the style, the perfect contrast!
5. Choppy-edge ivory-blonde straight bob & mink-brown balayage
Here is an easy to care for, simple bob haircut, with strict straight edges on the bottom. But the straight line is broken by professional texturing at the ends, creating a trendy, choppy edge. And to beautify this simple cut, the colors are fantastic and eye-catching.
Oatmeal blonde is a neutral tone that can be achieved on a natural blonde to blonde color. And the unusual mink balayage is so fashionable this season. I love how the colorist arranged the vertical lines in his own way for a personal and interesting look!
6. Straight-edge ivory-blonde bob with smart black border
This simple, one-length blunt bob is usually recommended for fine hair, but can be cut on medium to thick hair as well. This is a really chic and eye-catching version of the popular black and white hairstyles we love. This is one of my favorites as I have always loved seeing contrasting borders on clothing.
And it’s definitely going to be a popular “alternative scene” look due to its antithesis of urban black roots/platinum blonde styles. This dainty chin length bob is really original and fresh, and super easy to style too!
7. Pale mink-brown blonde short haircut with pearly finish
Mink blonde is another color from the 60s that has just come back into fashion. This is a beautiful shade that green eyes best. But your colorist will be able to tell you which tone is right for your complexion.
8. Gorgeous auburn long pixie-bob haircut
Isn’t the depth of color fabulous in this pixie cut for thick hair? It’s a rich shade that draws attention, but in a classy way. The style is a classic short back and sides, with long layers gradually radiating out from the crown. Styling your hair forwards like this helps you get more volume.
And that’s because you’re forcing the hair away from it’s normal growth direction. And thick hair is easy to texturize for a trendy, contemporary image. There’s no definite parting on this short haircut and the full fringe is gently styled to the one side.
9. High-fashion black & blonde pixie haircut with aqua balayage
If you love an easy-care style, but still want something that attracts attention, try this new look for fine hair! Instead of a harsh under-cut with shaved sides, the stylist has created a buzz-cut colored in black. So this gives a softer look for the face, whilst retaining the contemporary shape!
The top is left in long layers to retain the thickness of fine hair. And a wispy fringe drapes down to eyelash level. Finally, the addition of lovely aqua balayage in random patches around the head, makes this a great style to spike up for dance-clubs!
10. Super-chic blonde textured short pixie cut
You’d never guess this modern-looking hairstyle is an authentic 1960’s vintage look! It always looks trendy and face-flattering. And it flatters a wide range of faces including round, oval, heart and soft featured faces.This season’s version embraces the trend towards deeply textured, forward movement.
And the short side points that end just at the cheekbones really accentuate the eyes beautifully! It’s a bright, white-blonde shade that will definitely turn heads and the shaggy tips around the ends of the fringe create a youthful and fun finish!
So what do you think? Have you found your perfect makeover cut and color for this season? The choices are all winners and if you take your favorite pictures to your hair salon, your stylist will be happy to help you get the most flattering style for your face!
