#14: Pixie Mullet with Choppy Ends and Bangs

Talk to your stylist to determine the length you should shoot for when creating the perfect pixie. My best advice is to work with your hair texture. The more you need to change your natural texture to create a style, the more resistance you will endure. A natural flow with your pixie mullet is key. Creating softness in the texture with a razor will be effortless styling on your part.

#15: Sweet Mixie with Choppy Bangs

Try a sweet mixie with choppy bangs and you’ll be in style. My personal opinion is that a mixie is a new standard for short hair. Shaggy and organic, the style works with your natural hair texture. My experience is that a mixie looks best styled closer to your head and forward. A wax or putty will be helpful to give your short cut the best texture.

If you’re searching for a trendy and cool hairstyle, consider a jet-black pixie mullet cut. When it comes to textured hair, a shaggy pixie has tons of layered pieces that add to its appeal. Be prepared for fun when you style your hair with a paste, such as Mess It Up from Pureology.

#17: Low-Maintenance Short Pixie Mullet Style

A short pixie mullet that is low-maintenance is going to be a great option to have an edgy look, without spending too much time styling. When achieving this look, it’s important to keep your length and texture on the top, fringe, and nape area, while keeping the cut tighter around the sides. Styling a pixie mullet cut at home can be done simply with either a texture paste, powder, or spray for definition and volume.

#18: Shaggy Pixie Mullet

Pixie shaggy mullets are a hot trend and very versatile. Creates a lot more movement and texture and gives edgy flair to a pixie mullet style. Can be styled easy or just wash and go. Use dry shampoo for added volume and texture.

#19: Sally Hershberger-Inspired Cut

For the ladies that love that shaggy mullet consider a Sally Hershberger-inspired cut. Perfect for women who want to have more than just a pixie. Gives more sass to a short haircut with more texture to play with and style. Can be easily grown out or cut to change the shape completely.

#20: Androgynous Pixie Mullet for Round Faces

For round faces, an androgynous pixie mullet is a great option to help visually elongate your face shape. With a short buzz on the sides and added volume and height on top, this short hairstyle will give a slimming effect by adding length to the face. A clipper cut on the side will be more high maintenance, anywhere from 3-6 weeks in between appointments.

#21: Pixie Mullet with an Undercut

An undercut with a pixie mullet is a great option to balance clean cut and edgy. A skin fade is best accomplished with a straight razor, so make sure your stylist or barber is well trained in that for the best outcome. The taper transition on your fade starts around the same area as the front hairline where your fringe will be. This pixie haircut is best suited for fine-medium textures, and maintenance could be anywhere from 2-6 weeks.

#22: Long Pixie + Mullet Hairstyle

Longer pixie style mullets can balance out soft and hard shapes in the hair. Keeping it soft and textured around the face and back, and going in with a “scissor/trimmer-over-comb” around the ears adds a sharper shape to the silhouette of mullets and pixies. This look can be achieved on all thicknesses of hair and requires 4-6 weeks maintenance.

#23: Feminine Modern Mullet Pixie Combo

A way to keep a modern mullet pixie combo feminine is by adding pieciness into your fringe and side area. The texture cut into the hair can add a lot of visual movement to a short style while still keeping it delicate. Styling can be very minimal, but adding a touch of texture dust or a light hold hairspray after a blowout may be needed.

#25: Black Pixie Mullet Shag

Go for a black pixie mullet shag for an edgy yet chic look. The long textured fringe blended into perfectly placed cheekbone grazing sideburns exudes sophistication. This pixie mullet can be dressed up for the office, or as a casual wash-and-go style.

A pixie mullet is a bold, piece-y haircut with layers cut shorter from the sides and longer from the back.

“It’s super on-trend right now and is used to enhance what type of hair a woman has. Plus, it suits almost every face shape if cut correctly,” says stylist Lucy Palmer from Doha, Qatar.

Since this type of pixie haircut features a lot of layers and texture, styling it is the key. Always consider how you wish to prep your hair. Will it work with your natural texture or, will you be blowing your locks every time instead?

Palmer goes on to remind “to spend time styling your hair to optimize the result.” She prefers this look with a maximum wave, kink, or curl pattern to boost the shape. Make sure to use the right products suited for your hair type.

“A matte, textured look is optimal for finer hair to look dense,” Palmer suggests. “A slick, wavier style is great in adding definition to curls. It’s also ideal for thick hair to gain separation and look less bulky.”

Whether you like to keep or grow such a short mullet, understand that upkeep is essential. There’s a disconnection within the layers, which demands regular trims.
