7 Ways to Rock a Pixie Cut ...

By Lyndsie

The pixie is another one of my favorite haircuts, although I could never pull it off myself. My cheeks are a little too round for that. Still, I admire it on other women. In fact, most of my girl-crushes have pixies, and on ANTM, I always find myself rooting for the girl with the androgynous pixie. It takes a lot of figurative cajones to get this cut, and one of the reasons some women restrain themselves is because they believe they won't be able to do anything with their new short 'do. That's not the case at all, as you can see by reading about all the ways to rock a pixie cut!

1 Totally Tousled

One way to rock a pixie cut is to simply leave it tousled. You can just run your fingers through it, spray it with a little product or use a little gel or mousse, and you're good to go. A totally tousled look will look cute with a pair of jeans, and give an edge to your LBD look.

2 Smooth and Chic

The smooth pixie cut is chic as a matter of course. This look will easily bring out your eyes, highlight your cheekbones, accent your jaw, and make all your best features look more pronounced and extremely dazzling. When the cut comes with fringe bangs, you can smooth them down for a really chic, sleek look.

3 Bedheaded and Beautiful

One of the great things about a pixie cut is that you can easily roll right out of bed and just go – your hair will still look fantastic! If you ask the stylist to make sure your pixie cut has long layers on the crown of your head, you can go one step further than tousling it. Give your hair a flick to the side or even tousle it forward, and you'll have a gorgeous bedhead all day!

4 Spiked and Sassy

There's nothing I love better than a girl with spiked hair. This is a great way to rock a pixie cut, and one of my top favorites. It takes a bit of product but not as much as you might think. You can spike and cowlick your hair any which way you please, and know that you'll look like a total knockout.

5 Versatility Pixie

This particular style is great for girls whose faces are oval shaped or heart shaped, and it is absolutely gorgeous. The versatile pixie cut will also emphasize your neck and your collarbones. It's especially good if you have very fine hair, because the cut can make it look much thicker.

6 A Little Asymmetry

Asymmetry is another fantastic way to rock a pixie cut. Typically, with this version of the style, you get a fringe of bangs, and they're angled rather sharply. It can also have long layers along the sides and back of your hair. You have to really trust your stylist, though – otherwise it can end up looking a little bit like a mullet.

7 Hepburn's Pixie

Now, I have to go on the assumption that y'all have seen the original version of Sabrina. If you haven't, go to it, right now! The way Audrey/Sabrina gets her hair cut while in Paris is exactly what I'm talking about here. The bangs are short across the forehead, the hair in back will just brush the nape of your neck, there are longer strands over your ears, and the whole look comes together to emphasize your eyes, your neck, and your cheekbones. Absolutely gorgeous!

There are dozens more ways to rock a pixie. It really all depends on your preferences, your facial shape, and the texture of your hair. You can always start long and go a little shorter to find out what you like. What's the shortest hairstyle you've ever had?
