Pixie Haircuts for Women with Thick Hair
So, you are unsure of what a pixie haircut looks like? Think back to Halle Berry or more recently Keira Knightley or even Emma Watson. They have all sported pixie haircuts with style and panache. It is a bold yet feminine haircut that can do wonders for your face. Of course, you need to be confident enough to carry off this look with poise. With a pixie haircut, you will look trendy and bold. This haircut frames your face in such a manner that it enhances and accentuates all your facial features. It is a style that does not require you to spend too much time styling it. If you are someone who prefers a no maintenance haircut, then this would be the perfect style for you.
A very basic pixie cut would involve your hair getting cut very short with the edges being left soft. The hair would be cut in layers which would be short and narrowed. The bangs are generally side swept and soft. If you want to cut to be bolder and more defined, then you could always opt to get razor cuts instead of normal layers. While many women (especially those who are young) prefer to wear this style in way that gives them a slightly messy, just-out-of-bed look, if you are a working professional you could always opt for one that is layered well and can be styled easily. While many women tend to believe that the pixie haircut can seem boyish, you can opt for a more feminine style by asking your stylist to leave your bangs longer or kept the length of the hair longer around your ears or at the crown of the head. Another trick can be to opt for a haircut that is asymmetrical as these tend to look less boyish.
For women who have a long face, it may be a good idea to opt for a pixie haircut that allows for more volume at the sides, as this will make your face seem bigger than it actually is. With square faces, opt for long layers that fall across the forehead as this will make your face look tinier than it is. For women who have curly hair, this haircut can be a slight problem as with it can make the haircut look bulkier than it actually is. Pixie haircuts look the best on women who have straight hair ad small face with great facial features.
A Pixie haircut is one of the best short haircuts for thick hair, provided you are comfortable with making such a dramatic statement. It is stylish, chic, and sexy. It is also the perfect summer look for women who are bored of their long hair look and are looking for a spicy change.
