35 Asymmetrical Pixie Cut Ideas That Make a Statement

A trendy asymmetrical pixie cut is a hairstyle designed with one side shorter than the other. It’s an edgy upgrade to the classic pixie haircut.

Sylvia Barson, a hairstylist from Jackson, MI, shares her take on this cut, stating, “It’s a super trendy and edgy cut for women of all ages.”

Barson elaborates on how vital it is to be sure when deciding on getting an asymmetrical short haircut, especially if you currently have long hair. “If you don’t like the length of the shorter side, the grow-out can be rough,” she says. Dedicate enough time with your hairdresser to discuss such matters.

Discussing the smallest details does great wonders, especially with an asymmetrical cut. “If the sides aren’t enough of a difference, the style won’t appear asymmetrical,” she explains. “It will only look uneven.”

Pixies, like any other haircuts, demand styling. “It’s hard to make your hair look fine if not styled,” states Barson.

Pomade, wax, or cream-based products are easier when prepping your locks. These products give a good deal of texture and volume.

#1: Side-Swept Pixie Cut with Very Long Bangs

In my experience, a short, asymmetrical pixie cut with long bangs is a great choice for older ladies. This timeless style will add texture and dimension to any look. The longer side-swept bangs lend a youthful vibe. It’s easy to maintain at home but needs regular trims every 4 weeks to keep its shape. Consider using mousse or volumizing spray when styling for extra volume and lift on top! You’ll inspire other ladies to try a bold look, too.

#2: Asymmetric Pixie with Blonde Highlights

Asymmetry can be helpful in adding balance to facial features and can also lend extra edgy, soft, or feminine features to your cut. Adding more volume to your pixie cut’s fringe suits round, oval, pear, and diamond facial features. Including highlights also improves the dimensional look. Maintain a contrasting color at the back of the head to ensure the highlights do not overshadow the cut’s style.

#3: Asymmetric Lixie Cut for Thick Hair

The asymmetric lixie cut for thick hair is a bold and edgy hairstyle, offering a unique spin on the traditional pixie cut. The style flaunts uneven lengths and angles, displaying an asymmetric yet sophisticated look. This pixie haircut with asymmetry is specifically intended for thick, coarse hair. It’s particularly well-suited for individuals who have naturally textured hair.

#4: Blonde Choppy Asymmetric Long Pixie Cut

Consider a blonde choppy asymmetric long pixie cut style. You might like an asymmetrical cut if you have a longer or pear face shape. This creates a balance in your facial shape, paired with a side part in the hair. Be aware that the longer side of this lopsided pixie cut must be balanced and textured so it doesn’t look like one long dog ear. Some layering and texturing with a close eye on length will solve this issue.

#5: Side-Parted Asymmetric Long Pixie

Ask for a long asymmetrical side parted pixie for an edgy yet feminine style. Talk to your stylist about your shape and hair texture before choosing the length. This will help to prevent going too short or having too much bulk in the crown area. You can soften your texture with a long, disconnected pixie cut if you have thick or fine dense hair.

#6: Asymmetric Pixie with Long Side Bangs

The asymmetric pixie with long side bangs for ladies in their 50s is an incredibly stylish look. This cut features a textured, layered shape that flatters straight, fine hair types. To create a modern pixie cut with asymmetry, add layers around the face to emphasize volume and texture on top. It will enhance cheekbones and draw attention away from any wrinkles. I suggest asking your stylist to leave the sides longer than usual. This way, you can easily sweep them back off of your face while still maintaining a full-bodied effect.

#9: Asymmetric Pixie with Side-Swept Bangs for Older Women with Fine Hair

When it comes to an asymmetrical pixie with side-swept bangs, you have to keep your fine hair in mind. I’d advise using a razor-cut technique and texturizing the ends. This will help reduce any bulkiness and create movement throughout your style. Rather than using products like mousse or hairspray, add Powder Puff by Kevin Murphy to your hair routine. You can use it on the root area before styling. Not only does this provide grip, but it also adds volume without making strands feel heavy.

#10: Soft Blonde Side-Swept Pixie Cut

The best way to give a pixie cut a modern twist is to go for an asymmetrical shape. The lengths on each side should be different enough to show off the style. A soft sweeping fringe into the longer area gives balance. Plus, it works the shorter length to longer well.
