The 15 Cutest Pixie Cuts for Thick Hair Are Right Here

Pictures of the best pixie cuts for thick hair

A pixie cut is a short hairstyle that’s short on the sides and nape area and longer on top of the head. The secret to a snazzy pixie is the volume, so naturally thick-haired women are fashionably privileged because of the innate volume that they have!

Haircutting specialist Brian Aguilar spruces up pixies every now and then and demonstrates how much can texture and bangs add finesse to a short cut. Thick tresses demand regular trims and proper care, as it can get too wild and unruly if not duly taken care of.

Pixies show off the face even more, so it’s key to consider which facial features you want to highlight more. Face-framing pieces and layers can do wonders to a pixie cut and your overall look when done strategically.

Lady celebs who have recently been spotted donning a rocking thick pixie are Ruby Rose, Viola Davis, Blake Lively, and Tyra Banks, and they’re more than enough source of inspiration!

If that isn’t enough to give you more reasons and inspiration, I’ve put together a collection of the trendiest pixie cuts for thick hair below. See it for yourself!

Retain long locks in a chop with this one. Growing it out to a bob seems like the next thing for this pixie cut.

The good thing about having thick hair is the amount of volume that is retained in whatever cut it is in. Opting for a short chop with long locks certainly gives room for fuller hair to be styled.

Flattering for a Round Face

How would you describe this look?

This is a modern, practical cut for bold women who have style, a short neck, and a lot of texture on the fringe and top with volume. It’s an easy cut to stylize for all occasions. What I like the most in this look is how it highlights and gives shape to the woman’s face.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This visual has to combine with your style in your day to day, that is, stripped and modern. It needs to be perfect just by drying with an ointment and working your hair with your hands to look natural. It combines with all kinds of face and texture hair. Just dare and do not be afraid to change!

How would you describe this look?

This haircut is something clean and fresh. The undercut style is pretty easy to deal on your daily routine since you only have to care about the top of your head. I made this style thinking about the natural curls of my client, making it even easier to handle.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is an aggressive hairstyle, so the real question is if you can handle this kind of look.  The routine itself should be pretty easy. I recommend the use of leave-in and natural dry to reveal the natural curls of your hair.

How would you describe this look?

This haircut is definitely a merge between a pixie cut and a bowl. We want something more organic and natural, taking the personal essence and beauty of each woman and doing something strong and pretty to make feel her beautiful. Take something older and worn and do something totally new, fresh, and beautiful to it.

Any advice for someone considering it?

It’s important to consider the head and face shape, the nature of the hair, the lifestyle, and the commitment. Most importantly, you must feel pretty and beautiful, so do not overdo it!

How would you describe this look?

This look is a fun rockstar textured look. My client here has a heavy curl pattern and very thick hair but likes to have it short and spunky! My favorite thing about this look is that it’s a rocker style but it’s glam at the same time with the slick down baby hairs and the curled sideburns.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Think about how much time do you give yourself when you are getting ready. Pixies, depending on the texture, do need a little bit more styling to pull it off, being that these are edgier haircuts. Are you making a big change from long to short? Are you ready for the commitment of short hair and having to come in sooner to keep up with the length?

When regarding if this style is good for you, think about your face shape and how you like to wear your hair. With this style, you can be pretty versatile with how you want to style it. My client has an oval-shaped face, so I gave her a cut with a more triangular shape on top. That way, the weight stays in the middle, so she can part it on either side of her head. Depending on your texture, you may have to blow out your hair with some type of mousse or styling creme, but to finish this out, you will need some type of pomade or shaping wax to give it that piecey textured look!

How would you describe this look?

This look is edgy and versatile! It can be worn so many different ways whether sleek, curled, to either side, etc! My favorite thing about it is that it accentuates the features of the face and adds a feminine touch to a short cut! Depending on the time you take to style it, it can look like a different haircut each time! Rock a pair of your favorite oversized earrings and own your next event!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This hairstyle is great for an on the go gal, but make sure you consider your natural texture and growth patterns! You may need to be prepared to do a bit of styling depending on the look you’re going for including using a texturizing spray, wax, or a flexible hairspray! Flat iron or small barrel curling iron can be used to add sleek shine or fun waves!
