The 15 Cutest Pixie Bob Haircut Ideas Ever

The cutest pictures of pixie bob haircuts

A pixie bob haircut is a women’s short haircut which length ranges between a pixie and a bob (between ear-length and neck-length). For those edgy gals who don’t mind a crop, this modish cut should be a definite go!

Though short, you’ll be surprised how versatile this hairstyle is! It can go from one-length to angled, choppy and shaggy to sleek, with a full front fringe or a lovely side bangs, or matched with a chic fashion color.

Ladies with the best short hair on television and who are for the cropped hair movement include Emilia Clarke, Zendaya, Mia Farrow, and Shailene Woodley. But all thanks go to the OG pixie bob queen  – Audrey Hepburn, who rocked the look with her natural locks!

Another good news is that with short hair comes less maintenance! Although if you fall too deep in love with the look, a trim visit is due monthly to keep the length at bay.

Still having second thoughts? Make that hesitation go away when you take a look at these up-to-date examples of pixie bob haircuts below!

There’s something about a fine chop that feels and looks so liberating. This one is for those who are always on the move but still finds time to let loose.

As short as it is, long layers make it fit for a bob as well. Show off your hair color and texture while keeping a fresh look.

Flattering for a Round Face

Rounded pixie cut with side bangs frame the face to appear narrower. Really does it for a sharper cheek area.

This shaggy apple bob is textured to the gods! Some sea salt spray and teasing action will make this gorgeous creation.

With a Long Side Part

Now you won’t sacrifice length when getting a shorter cut! Loos locks on the face can create a softening effect and balance the sharp edges of a pixie bob.

Ideal for Thick Hair

You can do so much with thick hair! Like this long pixie here. Certainly kept the length while having a relatively short cut.

How would you describe this look?

This pixie is bold yet feminine. This is a cut with disconnection. The sides and back are done with scissors and combover that is very tight and clean to the head. The top portion is done by point cutting at a diagonal, directing each section to the previous. The style is versatile and can be worn on either side. On lazy days, she can pull the fringe back in a cute small braid or with Bobby pins. What I love about this look is the confidence it gives her. She feels sexy, beautiful, and strong.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Make sure you are committed to this style. Most people have the misconception that short hair is easier. That’s usually not the case. It requires more styling, investment in good styling products, and more frequent visits to the salon. As far as products go, my go-to for short hair is Kengo Feather from Shu Uemura. It’s a great texture cream that provides excellent hold without a sticky or greasy feeling.

How would you describe this look?

This look is fierce! My favorite thing about this haircut is the textured pieces that make for a great tousled edgy look. The velvety red hair color is a bonus to bring it all together to make a statement.

Any advice for someone considering it?

My advice for anyone seeking to get a similar haircut is to be prepared to style it out. I like to compare this haircut to get a fringe (bangs) because to keep it looking in shape and easy to style, frequent trips to the salon for maintenance work is required.

This haircut is detailed, so hair type, texture, and growth patterns become magnified and are an important part of the end results. Styling may be a little challenging for those who have cowlicks, however, with great styling products such as pomades, working hairspray, and smoothing serum, most haircuts can become pretty easy to style. For lazy or active days, headbands and Bobby pins become your best friend.

How would you describe this look?

This curly cropped cut is the result of my client growing out her previously very short hair. This look is longer than what I consider a pixie cut but also not yet a bob. It’s fun, voluminous, and easy. This client’s curls are natural, and the styling was done with a YS Park Diffuser, Evo Salty Dog Salt Spray, and a dab of Bumble and Bumble Curl Cream.

Any advice for someone considering it?

For those of us fortunate enough to be given beautiful curls, this look is perfect if you just want to shampoo and air dry with minimal product use. The upkeep is easy, and I feel it is suitable for all ages but naturally thick. The curly texture is important in achieving this look.

How would you describe this look?

This look is a very feminine and soft “overgrown” or long pixie cut. It has soft lines and a long fringe area so someone who is perhaps a little afraid to go short will feel like they still have a little length to play with.

It can be worn parted on either side or styled back or messier which is my favorite thing about this look. Anyone can wear this and still have styling options. It’s great for any face shape or hair texture.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Absolutely go for it! I love this cut so much. Any face shape can have this look, but if you have a rounder face shape, I would make the fringe a bit more choppy and a little shorter than the jawline.

This look does not require a lot of styling, so it’s great if you are active or work out a lot or if you want to look cool and a bit edgy with little effort.

A light mousse is great to blow dry in for volume and finish with a creme wax for definition and separation. This look will absolutely work for short curly hair as well.

How would you describe this look?

It is a long textured pixie cut. For me, this cut is so fun because there is a lot you can do with it. You can wear it sleek or sassy. It can be so versatile. I love how fun pixie cuts can be!

Any advice for someone considering it?

You should have the time in your day to make for styling. Styling takes minimal time, but with short hair, it needs to be styled or else it just doesn’t look good. This client has thin fine hair, so I love that with this cut it doesn’t take away from any the fullness her hair would normally give being longer. I would make sure that a client looking for a cut like this finds a stylist who is confident in cutting short hair so that she can give the client a complimentary haircut!

How would you describe this look?

This is a layered pixie bob. The longer length in the front and sides of her hair adds femininity, while the short tapered back removes unnecessary bulk and shows off her beautiful neckline.

My favorite thing about this cut is its versatility – but I also love the color. The highlights add a beautiful dimension that really makes her hair pop.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This cut lets you have fun with a bunch of different looks. Before you commit to it, make sure you understand your texture, thickness, and face shape. You want a cut that highlights your best features.

To get the look in the photo – Blow dry with your fingers first, and lift as you direct the warm air close to the root/base to create volume. Finish off with a round brush for softness and control. Apply a molding wax throughout that’s lightweight. It should have enough control to shape without making the hair look stiff.

To create a sleek, evening look – Apply gel with a strong to medium hold on damp hair and comb back or with a deep side part.

To create a face-framing look – Blow dry towards the face (not away) then finish with a light serum or pomade.

To create a mohawk or pompadour look – Blow dry with fingers first. Lift and direct air at the root for volume. Use a round brush on the crown area away from the face. Afterward, set a couple of 1.5″ velcro rollers. Roll hair back for a few minutes on top – only when necessary for extra volume. Slick down the sides with a texturing cream or paste and finger excess product through the crown. Finish off with hairspray for extra hold and control.

This haircut can be fun for anyone who loves versatility or just having a short layered cut.

How would you describe this look?

This look is one of my favorite pixie bobs, and I put so much love and passion for this haircut. The detail and finishing are just flowing beautifully for the person. The color is done using our Muk Hybrid Hair Color.

Any advice for someone considering it?

My advice for all my client who wants a change (from long to short pixie) is to consider how much time you spend on your hair. I tend to do haircut that is easy maintenance.

Styling products are probably the major factors to create a stylish pixie bob. Use the best shampoo, conditioner, hair paste or wax, and heat protectant.

Go for it! A good haircutter will be able to adjust what type of pixie hairstyle that suits the client.

How would you describe this look?

This haircut is a versatile undercut bob. You could wear it on both sides and in the middle. It’s clean, fun, and edgy all at the same time.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This haircut is a high maintenance haircut where you should get it cleaned up every 6-8 weeks in order to keep the shaping of the cut. This cut is great for people’s face shapes who are oval, square, and round to name a few and would be ideal for people who have finer hair and would like a little more volume. All you need is a little mousse, round brush, and 5 minutes to blow dry, and you are done.
