There’s no wonder that pixie cuts have been such a popular choice with women of all ages for the last several decades. Besides being a truly statement cut, a youthful pixie is relatively low-maintenance. The right pixie will flatter virtually any hair type, giving an extra lift to thin hair and reducing the excessive thickness of thicker manes.

If you have thick hair, a pixie cut could be your way to go. And if you seek to add an edgy note to your style, an undercut pixie has you covered. This cut is incredibly versatile – colors, lengths, and the size of the undercut can be combined into hundreds of unique looks. Long story short, below are 20 awesome examples of undercut pixie for thick hair to get you inspired.

1. Let’s Go Copper

This eye-grabbing pixie looks extremely youthful and fresh due to voluminous bangs and the vivid copper hue. A longer undercut makes this hair look close to a classic pixie – a great choice if it’s your first undercut and you don’t want to go too bold.

2. Add Some Drama

If you’re into styles that can seamlessly combine femininity and edginess, consider getting a side-swept undercut pixie. While the former gives a vibe of a genuine lady, the latter will reveal your inner rebel. And yes, pay attention to subtle highlights all over this hair – they can magically make your eyes shine.
