In 2015, short, asymmetrical cuts are a popular choice, whether in a pixie cut or a bob. Asymmetrical pixies usually have one side of the head shaved, with longer bangs swept into a deep part. This style is great for straight or wavy, thick hair and flatters prominent cheek bones. An asymmetrical bob can either be shorter on one side or short in the back and longer in the front, which is also known as a stacked bob. This style suits curly, wavy or straight thick hair and is easily styled to look casual or dressy.

Shags and layered bobs, or lobs, are jaw length or longer and flatter many face shapes. The key to making these cuts easy for thick hair is to have layers cut in the right places. Inverse layering creates layers that are cut underneath the longer top layer of hair, which rounds the edges and softens the thickness of the hair. Chunky layers are great for wavy or curly hair and give the cut natural volume. Any of these styles can be worn with or without bangs, depending on what flatters the face best.

Boyfriend cuts are the easiest to manage since they require less time to style. These are uniformly close cropped haircuts, often created with clippers. This style is great for people with delicate or small facial features. If this style is too short, a classic or edgy pixie cut is an alternative that adds some length and texture for a more feminine look.
