A pixie with long, shaggy layers creates texture and shape. It has short layers at the crown and long fringe pieces at the hairline. This hairstyle is customizable to your facial shape and neckline. A razor is an important tool to achieve the texture and softness of this hairstyle.
#4: Very Short Shag with Heavy Layers
You’ll cherish the simplicity of maintaining a very short, heavily layered shag haircut. Remember that longer top layers may flatten the hair’s silhouette, which might not suit your preference if you aim for volume. Ask your stylist to cut the sides and back in a shaggy style to boost your hair’s natural body and instigate movement. The cute fringe will be a charming focal point to your natural style. Just leave your hair to air dry with texture wax and relish your speedy hair routine.

A messy short haircut with long front hair suits many face types, especially oval, heart, and square faces. This cut’s layered style and rough feel make the hair seem fuller. It eases sharp face traits and matches the shape of the face. Also, long front hair can hide a big forehead or make the face seem longer. This adds depth and style to the person’s look.

Change your look with a long copper pixie shag, great for fine hair. The asymmetrical cut gives it a dynamic flair. The copper color also adds warmth and depth. The cut gives your hair texture and movement. If you want a bold but easy-to-manage style, it’s ideal.

#9: Edgy Long Pixie with Choppy Layers
The hairstyle is a modern, lengthy pixie cut with uneven layers. If you’re letting your short pixie cut grow out, the long pixie can be a good in-between style. Since the hair at the back of the neck usually grows out first, you can use a razor to taper its edges. A short fringe and a longer outline and neckline lend a unique shag-like feel to this long pixie cut.
#10: Curly Mixie with Micro Bangs
Revamp your look with a curly pixie cut featuring micro bangs. This style provides a playful twist on the classic curly, shaggy pixie cut. This daring style exudes confidence and individuality, blending textured curls with edgy micro bangs for a statement-making look bound to turn heads.
#11: Long Shaggy Pixie Bob Cut
A long shaggy pixie bob cut is a great short hairstyle for women wanting to keep their locks stylish. If you have a long face, a shaggy or layered version of the cut can help add some width and volume. A longer top section of hair can be styled forward to create bangs. Bangs shorten the appearance of the face. The best way to style is to apply a small amount of texturizing product to the hair while damp. Then use a round brush to blow dry. Finish with a light-hold hairspray to keep the cut looking fresh and bouncy all day.
#12: Long Tousled Pixie Shag with Short Layers
If you want to look edgy but not messy, consider a shaggy long pixie cut. This punk rock style is one of the trendiest of the season and looks good quickly styled with just a bit of wax. As a stylist, I prefer to cut this with a razor but not every client is a candidate, so ask your stylist if it’s an option for you!
#13: Short Bangs on a Mini Wavy Mullet
If you’ve been thinking about going shorter, consider a long shaggy pixie with bangs. If you feel like a cut such as this is too edgy, keep in mind that it can really be customized for each client. Especially with the way that it’s layered and the fringe in the front. This is a low-maintenance haircut as far as styling. But, you will need to be in the salon getting a cut about every 6 weeks in order for this to maintain its proper shape.
#14: Pixie Shag Mullet with Framing Layers and Bangs
The modern pixie mullet is one of the biggest hair trends right now. I have clients with thin hair that want to try this cut but don’t want it to look too limp and wispy. I tell my clients as long as they blow dry in a texture spray and style with wax, you won’t be worried about it.
#15: Soft Tousled Pixie Shag Cut on Straight Hair
Try the retro-modern soft tousled pixie shag cut on straight hair. A long shaggy pixie cut incorporates short top layers into shaggy sides and a mullet back. It’s truly a trendy take on a pixie. Keep in mind, when styling your hair, that the finish should be piece-y but not too fluffy. The top layers will give you some pop and texture but the profile should be closer to your head shape. You’ll want to utilize a texture paste for separation.
#16: Long Pixie with Textured Fringe and Face-Framing Layers
Wolf cuts are all the rage and can be flattering for a myriad of people with just a bit of alteration to the cut. I recently had a client who thought she couldn’t pull this off because she had a round face. That simply isn’t true. By keeping the cut a bit longer and opting for a bit more of a curtain bang, you create a great style for fuller faces.
#17: Short Golden Pink Hair with Messy Shagged Layers
Whether you have textured or fine hair, the shaggy pixie is a versatile cut for women. Because this cut works on all hair types, this is a very popular cut with a lot of my clients. This haircut has a bit of an edge, but if you blow dry it smooth with a brush and some shine serum, it can also look sleek.
#18: Wispy Layers on a Pixie Bob Cut
If trendy is what you’re looking for, the shaggy pixie bob haircut is what I’m constantly being asked for. This haircut is a combination of the bob and the pixie with a lot of feathered layers. The thing that I like the most about this haircut is how soft everything is. Making it a great first haircut for anyone who’s hesitant about going shorter.
#19: Mini Wolf Cut with Short Crown Layers
Girls have many options when it comes to choosing a haircut, from face shapes to density. The variations are limitless. A mini wolf cut with short crown layers, for example, is a modern take on the shaggy pixie cut for thin hair. It takes what works and removes what doesn’t so the wearer feels empowered by her unique style.
#20: Shaggy Pixie Hair with Feathered Layers
One of the most trendy cuts right now because of its unisex style is a shaggy pixie. What sets this cut apart is its very jagged layers that are usually cut with a razor. This cut looks good on virtually everyone and has a ton of style. All you have to do is throw a little wax in it before you head out the door and you’ll be good to go!
#21: Razored Layers with Side Part Bangs
Try the modern style of razored layers with side-part bangs. Crop off your hair and enjoy easier manageability and a trendier shape. Shaggy pixie cuts for fine hair should be styled flat with wispy ends. This will make the most of your thin strands. Straight hair will work wonderfully for texture and the side part adds style. Take the leap into shorter hair and I think you’ll laove it.
#22: Fluffy Pixie Style on Short Blue Hair
A fluffy pixie with short blue hair is for the eccentric and stylish type of woman. I love the idea of adding length around the nape and lots of tousled volume on top. It gives the whole style a very anime vibe.

A long pixie with shaggy jagged layers is the perfect mix of a pixie and a short shag cut. Start the cut with choppy micro bangs as your guide. Then, the layers become gradually longer towards the bottom. This cut is great for wash-and-go or to style out with some loose curls. Use a piecing cream for added texture and style.
