Pixie cuts come in all shapes, colors, and lengths. I know finding the right one to fit your personality, hair type and lifestyle can be challenging. So before you take the pixie leap, please read the most important tips and advice I share with my clients who’re considering a pixie. Then, check out the pictures I’ve collected from Instagram of the most popular pixie cuts for your inspiration!

Key Things to Know First

  • It’s important to have your pixie cut by a hairstylist or barber with experience cutting short hair. Short hair requires very different cutting skills!
  • If this is your first pixie, don’t cut it too short. I’ve made that mistake before. You don’t know how your hair will lie on your head until you start cutting it shorter. Especially when it comes to cowlicks and natural hair patterns. Some women just can’t pull off a short pixie without the help of a lot of products and a blow dryer or flat iron.
  • You’ll need to buy different types of hair products that you may not have used before. This includes wax, pompade, clay, gel or cream. Your stylist should help you out with choosing a product based upon your hair texture, pattern and styling you’re looking for.
  • Your face shape becomes more important the shorter you cut your hair. Shorter hair will make your face shape more visible and defined. Below, I’ll show you examples of the best pixies to get for round, square, oval and heart shapes faces.

Classic, Disconnected Pixie Cuts
Instagram @dudkazhenya

#1: Classic, Disconnected Pixie Bob

Consider a classic disconnected pixie cut. The sides and the back are trimmed much shorter than the top, almost like a chic pompadour. This is a very airy, textured haircut. This haircut calls for using a styling product with hold that builds a foundation, and a smoothing styling product for the ends. Once dry, use a texture product for hold and style. I highly recommend R&Co Rockaway Salt Spray, R&Co Aircraft Pomade Mousse, and R&CO Continental Wax.

Tip: A great pixie cut is based on not just facial features but also the shape of your head. A short haircut is essentially influenced by bone structure. Before deciding on length and shape, it is important to consider the shape of your head.

#2: Youthful Pixie Bob Haircut

Opt for one of the top pixies for this year with the layers, deep side part, smokey blonde color and shaved sides. This style will make a woman of any age look hip and stylish. Great for women with fine hair as this short crop adds tons of volume. It can also work for you if you have thick hair, just make sure your stylist removes excess bulk. Style with pomade for that piece-y sassy look.

#3: Short Edgy Blonde Pixie with an Undercut

Try out an edgier look by opting for a short blonde pixie with an undercut. Pixie haircuts for women are a great option if you are looking for an easy, low-maintenance style. An undercut is an easy way to relieve your hair of unwanted weight while also adding a unique and edgy look to your style. Ask your stylist for lots of texture for added movement and a more piecey look.

Tip: Most pixies require a trim every four to eight weeks in order to maintain their shape.

#4: Cute Blonde Messy Pixie Cut

If you have been thinking about a big change for your hair, try a messy pixie cut for your next haircut and a bright blonde for your hair color. Adding texture to the cut helps to create a more textured and messy look for your hair. When it comes to growing out your pixie, the key is keeping up on your trims every 6-8 weeks. This will allow your hair to grow while also keeping a flattering shape and design.

#5: Edgy Silver Pixie with Long Sideburns

If you are searching for an interesting short cut, you should try an edgy silver pixie. Have your stylist cut your hair short at the nape and sides and leave the front longer on one side, creating a fun asymmetrical shape. Your cut will make you look younger and will take minimal time to style. Keep in mind, that you will need to get your short hairstyle trimmed often, about every 4 weeks, to retain its shape.

Tip: Pixie cuts often have layers to add volume to fine or thin hair.

#6: Blonde Side-Swept Pixie with an Undercut

Spice up your cut by trying a blonde side-swept pixie with an undercut. Adding an undercut to your hair is a unique style that helps to keep the sides and back of your hair short. Although this cut is short and cropped, try keeping the front longer to create a soft, side-swept look. Side-swept bangs help to create softness around your face while also helping to disguise fine lines and wrinkles.

#7: Jet-Black Long Shaggy Pixie with Curtain Fringe

A long shaggy pixie paired with a curtain fringe is a perfect style for a wash-and-wear look! Great on curly and wavy hair, shorter cuts can be left longer or shorter and styled with little hair product and minimal effort. Pixies aren’t just for older ladies. A pixie cut for teenage girls is just as trendy.

Did you know: Pixie cuts are one of the most versatile haircuts you can get. Unsurprisingly, they’re fairly low maintenance.

#46: Modernized Androgynous Pixie for Thick Hair

Opt for a boyish or androgynous pixie haircut if you have thick hair. It’s cut with a longer, very texturized top. You can wear this with side-parted bangs around the face or all styled up and up for a “borrowed from the boys” or tomboy look. Try a good product with hold and definition like Rock Hard Gel (although feels like more of a cream) from Oribe is great for this style. A short hairstyle actually works very well on medium to pretty thick hair. Straight to slightly wavy hair will work best for this style as it’s meant for very little styling. The pixie cut for thick wavy hair will show off your face and features and works great for many different face shapes.

Versatile pastel pixie cut

#47: Versatile Pastel Pixie

Consider a smokey pastel on a shaggy  long pixie cut. I love these types of cuts because there is so much movement in the color and the longer layers on top. I think this is the most versatile a shorter crop can be and have some fun with the color too! Fine to medium density hair is great for this short style! Any skin tone can wear these colors because of the metallic undertone to the pastels.

#48: Soft Pixie for Women Over 50

Any woman over 50 with confidence can pull off soft and layered short pixie haircuts. This pixie cut for over 50 can work well on straight or wavy hair textures. The color is just hints of warm highlights to add even more texture. Going short can be scary the first time, so if you are considering a cute pixie cut with highlights make sure you are ready to let go and trust your stylist to create the perfect look. The more confident you are in your hairdresser, the better your result will be!

#60: Metallic Short and Choppy Pixie

The short choppy pixie is inspired by modern trends in steel and metallics. Not everyone can pull off short choppy cuts and keep it feminine. Choose soft shapes if you have strong features. Be prepared to style your hair daily and really invest in products to maintain style and color. Listen to your hairdresser if they offer good advice and be brave and leave your current one if they offer no ideas.

#61: Shattered Pixie with Choppy Bangs

Opt for a short hair cut like a shattered pixie-length haircut. There is a lot of texture that helps break apart any solid lines in your hair. Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner for coarse hair to help soften the cuticle. To style a cut like this, use a dry wax-like Kevin Murphy Rough Rider to add some volume and separate the layers. Shattered haircuts would work best on someone with an oval face shape. However, anyone with a bold personality can wear it. This haircut is great for those with an active lifestyle or career since it does not take very long to style and there is no need for hair ties!

Sophisticated disconnected pixie for fine hair

#62: Sophisticated Disconnected Pixie for Fine Hair

This is a cross between a pixie cut and a disconnected undercut with bangs. It’s the perfect combination of cute and feminine, yet still edgy and fun. For styling, use KMS Add Volume spray on wet hair. After drying and styling,  finish with Goldwell Unlimitor spray wax to give it some texture. Disconnected haircuts are best suited for if you have a heart-shaped, oval, or square face. For closely cropped styles like this one, you need to have the right hairline in the back (higher is better). Keep in mind that it will draw more attention to your facial features. Because of this, some women tend to want to play up their makeup.

#63: Sexiest Blonde Pixie with Layers

Go for a disconnected lixie with an undercut and bang produced with a razor to give it softness and more texture. For styling, use ARROJO products. Their texture paste and hair cream specifically, which will create texture and messy hair. A long pixie haircut with bangs is perfect if you’re looking for a cool, edgy, modern kind of look. It’s great for straight or wavy textured hair.

#64: Super Short Pixie Shag

Shaggy pixie haircuts are great for the stylish woman on the go. It’s an easy, no-fuss style, especially if you have a cool choppy texture!  Consider this sweet, edgy, and feminine choppy cut with short hair on the sides and longer hair on top. To style this short cut, use K Mousse Bouffant by Kerastase on damp hair then air dry or diffuse to enhance the texture. This mousse will hold the texture well without becoming crunchy. Having great products which hold your wave and fight frizz make a night and day difference to the end results. After your hair is dry, add some Kenra Dry Texture Spray to enhance the texture even more.

#65: Curly Pixie for Naturally Curly Hair

A short curly pixie cut is a mix of short and edginess, but also soft and feminine. I love the bits and pieces of the haircut that frame your face and neck. Use a pomade mousse from R+Co hair called Aircraft to fingerstyle and air dry. You can use your favorite light pomade or hair wax. This works well with naturally curly hair, but can work on anyone with fine to medium textureas well. It’s very low maintenance because you can simply tousle or air dry it. Keep in mind curly cuts are typically shaved to the natural texture, so be open-minded about your texture and how your hair falls. That’s what makes it special and personal for your curly hair and your style!

Tip: Growing out a pixie cut may take longer if your hair is curly or extra thick.

#66: Gorgeous Grey Pixie for Older Women

This pixie is an edgy look with some sass, depending on how you want to wear it. You can wear this slicked to the side for a more formal look, or textured and messy for an everyday style. Use a texture spray/workable hairspray and a pomade. To create this short hairstyle, try Kenra Professional Texture Spray and Layrite Original Pomade.

#67: Razor Cut Pixie with Long Bangs

This cut screams beauty, edgy, and feminine at the same time. What’s great about this haircut is that it has the strength of modern short pixie cuts, but the versatility and softness through the top to allow you to style it many ways. Oval or elongated face shapes work best for razor cut haircuts with a fringe, as it does not lengthen the appearance of the face. If you’re into effortless style, this is perfect for you because you can let it dry naturally or have a quick blow dry and go with the right product.

#68: Edgy & Chic Short Wavy Pixie

A pixie cut for wavy hair could be the best way for you to experiment with a new, bold haircut. You can rock short pixie cuts, you just have to have the self-confidence to own it. With the correct haircut, a strong firm pomade and a little oil serum combo will easily achieve this haircut. Don’t forget to add your stronghold hairspray as well for the finishing touch. I believe a wavy pixie is multicultural that can really create a whole new look for someone.

#69: Unique Long Pixie with Side-Swept Bangs

Long pixie cuts can be short hairstyles that are not only professional but extremely low maintenance. They have enough length in the front so you can wear it to the side, in a pompadour, wavy, or without any styling at all. For this particular hairstyle, use Kenra Blow Dry Spray to protect from heat and reduce drying time in half. It also leaves your hair shiny and manageable. Finish with Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray for that polished yet messy look. Make sure to always book in advance so you can be in the salon every four to five weeks to maintain!

#70: Before and After Androgynous Pixie

Check out this before and after of an androgynous pixie. With its clipper cut sides and longer length on top, this cut is perfect to spike up or wear down. Maintenance on this cut is about every 4 weeks to keep the sides nice and tight. You can use spray wax on your new haircut. It’s a great product to really show off that texture and get the top spiked out without having a heavy feel to it.

#72: Excellent Tapered Pixie Hairstyle

A tapered hairstyle is an excellent choice for fine hair. To achieve a lovely feathery and piece-y look ask your stylist to use a razor for the cut. Style your pixie cut for fine thin hair with a wax or pomade to define the shape and add texture.

#73: Textured Pixie for Women Over 70

If you’re in your 70’s, you likely have thin hair. One way to boost it is to ask your hairstylist to texturize your cut. Keep the length around 2-4 inches with varying lengths. If you’re looking for a wash-and-go long pixie cut, this is it!

Readers Also Ask

  • A classic pixie haircut is shorter and tapered in the back and sides, with a little more length on the top. Depending on your face shape, this is where you can play with the length of your bangs to compliment the end look.

  • A pixie can be low-maintenance, typically if you have fine-medium texture and minimal cowlicks. The way your pixie is cut or styled also plays a role in the maintenance it may require, so it’s always a good idea to consult with a professional to see how much work needs to be put into your cut.

  • A pixie cut can look fuller with the help of styling products. Volumizing mousses and sprays can add lift and fullness, as well as texturizing pastes, powders, and sprays to add separation and definition.

  • Going from a pixie to a bob can take 4 months up to a year. The biggest challenge when growing out a pixie is keeping the nape short while the top and sides grow out. It requires a lot of patience but with a good stylist, they can make the growing stages a lot more flattering.

  • Pixies can be a great option with curly hair! Having natural curl can add great volume and movement to your pixie, and knowing how to work with your curl pattern is important so the cut stays structured and not frizzy.

  • Oval face shapes are the most versatile and can pull off a pixie cut haircut. Heart and square face shapes can also rock a pixie cut, too. A pixie cut is going to be the most ideal for petite face shapes like a round, square, or heart face shape. Smaller faces can become overwhelmed with long hair so pixies are a great option that keeps the overall look balanced.

  • A layered pixie cut has a seamless blend of long and short hair, with shorter usually on the sides. Layers help remove weight but maintain length and volume.

  • The short answer is yes! Round faces just need a little more customizing to accentuate certain parts of the face, such as cheekbones. Longer face-framing layers or curtain bangs are common for round faces as well.

  • To make your pixie more feminine, try adding a few longer layers towards the face, whether it’s face-framing bangs or layers on top that add height and swoop forward. A smoother cut that is less wispy or choppy will help take away the “edgy” look.

  • Fine hair may need a little more texture to help add volume and give the illusion of thicker, fuller hair. Try adding a sea salt spray into your routine!
