1. What is a Pixie Haircut?
The pixie haircut is layered trimmed haircut with optional thinning ends, short on the back and sides of the head and slightly longer on the top.

A pixie haircut is the ultimate, classic short haircut that can give a sharper look to an oval face. It also brings about the following benefits:

3. How to style a Pixie Haircut?
- Long Pixie Cut
There is a misunderstanding that a pixie cut is always a super short cut. However, there’s a special version of it that you can try if you’re not completely ready to try the extremely short hair. That is a long pixie cut. A long pixie haircut is a great combination of a bob and a short pixie. The style is short enough to draw attention to your face but long enough to create the feminine appeal. The extra length of a long pixie cut, focused mostly at the front, creates a face-framing effect and softens the style.
- Short Pixie Cut
You must screw up your courage when deciding to cut your hair into a short pixie style, especially if you’re used to having long locks. The style will dramatically change your look and take considerable time to grow out. However, when you do the cut, you will realize that it may be the most beautiful style you’ve ever had. Like pressing the F5 button, this style will lift and brighten your face and mood.
- Pixie Cut With Bangs
Bangs can level up a plain pixie cut. Short hairstyles with bangs are a great way to cover a broad forehead on a heart face, which is the model’s face shape. And thick bangs – straight across or from a side-parting – do a great job breaking-up the circular shape of a round face. Choose side bangs that swoop across the forehead to give short hair a feminine touch. Or you can combine choppy layers as a blunt fringe with a pixie cut to keep the look graceful.
- Curly Pixie Haircut
Bubble curls and soft ringlet bangs add a lively vibe to this jaunty pixie. The hair has lots of texture and movement that reflects light from the glossy surface. Adding height helps faces seem longer and slimmer making this a flattering look for oval, round, and heart faces.
- Wavy Pixie cut
Both symmetrical and asymmetrical pixies are often accompanied with straight hair, but it doesn’t only go that way! Natural wavy-haired ladies look just as lovely with a short cut, as is represented in the photo below. You can go for a cropped cut that has enough length on top to allow your natural waves to be flaunted.
So, that’s all we want to share with you about a pixie haircut. Is there one that turns your wheels running? If yes, go to your familiar hair salon and take it as soon as possible. And enjoy the most gorgeous hairstyle you have ever had!
