Coolest Short Layered Hairstyles for Thick Hair
We have put together 18 best short thick hairstyles with layers for women to try out this season.
1. Short Blonde Balayage + Layers
This is one of those classic short haircuts for women with thick hair, and it’s very simple to achieve. First, you should cut your hair right where your jawline starts.
After that, make sure your stylist cuts down a subtle layer that is just a bit shorter than the rest of your hair so your haircut can get some movement and texture into it.
2. Short to Medium Layered Bob
This is another great option for those looking for short layered hair but doesn’t necessarily want super short hair. To get this, your thick hair should be cut right on top of your shoulders.
Keep in mind the second layer should fall right on your jawline, framing your face, and a few shorter hairs that help make the transition between the two lengths more blended.
3. Short Asymmetrical Bob
Truth is short layers on thick hair like this one actually help you manage your natural hair better. For this particular haircut, one side of your hair should be longer than the other.
Also, it’s very important that the layers are very visible across the shorter part of your hair since it will help give the haircut way more texture and movement.
4. Short Tight Curls
Not all short haircuts have to be along with the bob hairstyle. You can also ask your hairstylist to cut your hair very short on the sides and back, leaving only the top long enough for your natural curls to show up.
Although it isn’t a typical short layered hair, it does separate your hair into two layers and gives you the opportunity to let your curls grow healthier than before.
5. Classic Thick Pixie Cut
This pixie is another classic for you to try! Again, the longest layer of your thick hair should be the top one, with the middle one being a little bit longer as well and the bottom part being as short as you want to go (without shaving that part completely).
6. Ombre Bob
If you’re looking for a subtle short layered thick hair, then this is the one for you. As you can see, she has a long layer and two shorter ones that make the wavy hair fall around their face naturally. Also, don’t forget to style your hair to the side so you can mimic this particular hair.

8. Afro Hair with Layers
