If you have lovely thick hair then first of all – you’re incredibly lucky, and second of all, there are a number of gorgeous and versatile hairstyles which can show off your incredibly thick locks. It’s often misconstrued that those with thick hair should only wear long hairstyles, but we think shorter styles make thick hairstyles look even better! Here’s our amazing gallery of short hairstyles for thick hair, absolutely full of inspiration for you.
Tousled Long Bob
This absolutely stunning long balayage bob has well and truly stolen our hearts. Starting this gallery off strongly, this beautiful bob falls around the shoulder length, and blends from a gorgeous and rich brown through to a lovely light blonde at the ends. This stylish lady has added curls throughout and lots of tousles for a bouncy finished effect.
Graduated Curly Bob for Thick Hair
This stunning graduated curly bob is tousled and rugged, creating a super stylish shaggy finish. With strands slightly longer at the back of the head, with shorter strands at the front of the head falling to frame the face. The thick hair is separated into lots of lovely layers throughout, and the messy curls creates a fabulous thick silhouette.
Choppy Short Bob Hairstyle for Women
We absolutely love this choppy bob – this is the perfect style to work into your thick hair! This lady has striking black glossy locks, which she’s cropped into a choppy bob full of lots of different layers throughout to create this fantastic flicked effect. She’s loosely tousled the locks for a shaggy finish which is just so on trend.
Side View of Feathered Bob with Highlights
Another truly striking bob to add to the collection – this time full of wonderful caramel highlights! The base of the hair is a stunning and rich brown which is perfectly complimented by the dark blonde. This lady has opted for feathered layers throughout to create a textured finish, and has curled and flicked the ends backwards for this dramatic and stylish end result.
Textured Blonde Bob with Side Parting – Hairstyle for Women Over 30
This gorgeous textured blonde bob is the perfect day to night hairstyle. This lady’s opted for a gorgeous side parting, leaving one half of the hair longer to frame the face and form a side fringe. Her hair is naturally a dark chocolate brown, but she’s opted for bright blonde highlights throughout. She’s added rugged curls throughout the ends of the hair for effect.
Tousled Wedged Bob Haircut for women with thick hair
A wedged bob is one of our favourite short hairstyles, stacked at the back of the head and full of lovely choppy layers to create this gorgeous curved effect you see at work. The front of the hair has been finished with a short fringe to frame the face, with loose strands of hair falling for effect. Add a subtle tousle for a bouncy and voluminous finish.
Brown Bob with Short Back Layers for summer
This bob is full of unique short layers which add a remarkable texture and end result to this lovely lady’s hair. Her brown locks are cut into a side fringe which frames the face, and finished with longer strands which sit around the ears. The back of the hair is absolutely full of choppy, short layers which this lady’s tousled for a lovely finish.
Copper and Brown Balayage Bob Haircut for thick hair
Just because you’re working with short hair doesn’t mean you can’t still be experimental with colour techniques like ombre or balayage – just as this lovely lady proves! Her hair works from a striking copper shade on the top and around the longer layers which fall around the front of the face. The back of the head with shorter layers is a dark, rich brown.
