A pixie haircut is a simple way to make your looks sharper and brighter. Short hair draws extra attention to your face, so you should think in advance what features you’d like to accentuate with your short haircut. Extra short pixie, for instance, flatters girls and women with delicate facial features and big eyes. If you have some extra pounds, it’s better to decide on a pixie with a tapered silhouette and elongated bangs.
Ultra-Cool Pixie Cuts for Thick Hair
Here are 45 best pixie ideas in pictures!
#1: Pixie with Long Crisp Layers and Nape Undercut

The thinner and longer the layers, the less “puffy” or “spiky” your pixie will look. Hair that reaches the ears all the way around and has a dramatic undercut at the nape of the neck allows for a striking contrast with loads of intrigue. Keep the undercut short, but not totally buzzed.
#2: Choppy Dark Brown Pixie
This chick looks like she’s just put on her blue suede shoes and is about to paint the town red! We love how the stylist took the naturally shaggy texture of her dark hair and turned it into a super hip style. Tip: it works amazingly well, when paired with biker-chic outfits, as seen above.
#3: Long Choppy Uneven Pixie Cut
This choppy cut features the longest length in the front and progressively decreases in length towards the back. The look is an easy transition from longer hair to a total pixie cut, as the face-framing length gives it an almost bob-like appearance, but the nape is from a short cut.

#4: Mussed Up Layered Pixie with Highlighted Bangs
Embrace a messy, cool-girl texture. Whether you look for a crop to compliment straight hair or a pixie cut for thick curly hair, layers and a tapered silhouette are key. When styling, opt for a messy finish to show off the moment of the hair, an essential attribute of a modern haircut of any length.

#5: Adorable Long Tousled Brunette Pixie
Scared of a pixie cut that lays flat? It’s easy to style a longer pixie without sacrificing your love for volume. Add a root booster or volume enhancer to the roots before blow-drying your hair, and flip your head over when drying to amp up volume even more. When you’re through, just shake it out and go!

#6: Extra Long Blonde Pixie with Tapered Nape
As women’s hair varies in textures, finding a complimentary cut means “every day a good hair day” with minimal styling. When it comes to pixie cuts for thick coarse hair, a longer side-parted style feels the most natural and flattering for stubborn strands.

#9: Long Messy Blonde Balayage Pixie
Experimenting with the color of your pixie cut is a great way to personalize the look. The hair painting or balayage techniques allow a stylist to add in tones that complement your roots as the pixie grows out. An ashy blonde with dark roots oozes a rocker-chic vibe that works well with the shape.

#10: Bronde Pixie Bob for Thick Hair
One way to make pixie haircuts for thick hair stand out is to give them highlights. This one looks summer-fresh with the bronde balayage color. The best thing about the pixie bob is its versatile look – you can grow it out into a bob until your next salon appointment or crop it back into a shorter pixie if you decide so.
