Pixie cuts come in all shapes, colors, and lengths. Finding the right one to fit your personality, hair type, and lifestyle can be challenging. So before you take the pixie leap, read the tips and advice I share with my clients considering a pixie. Then, check out this pixie haircut gallery I’ve put together for your inspiration!

Essential Things to Know First

  • What is a pixie cut? A pixie cut is a women’s haircut that’s cut short around the sides and back of the head and 1 to 3 inches long on top.
  • It’s essential to have your hair cut by a hairstylist or barber with experience cutting short hair. Short hair requires very different cutting skills!
  • If this is your first pixie cut, don’t cut it too short. I’ve made that mistake before. You only know how your hair will lie on your head once you cut it shorter. Especially when it comes to cowlicks and natural hair patterns. Some women can only pull off a short pixie haircut with the help of many products and a blow dryer or flat iron.
  • You’ll need to buy different hair products you may not have used before. This includes wax, pomade, clay, gel, or cream. Your stylist should help you out with choosing a product based on your hair texture, pattern, and style 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.

If you are looking for more helpful tips and styling ideas, you should definitely read our guide.

Now, check out these pictures of modern and trendy pixie cuts for women this year!

#1: Stunning Short Pixie with Wispy Bangs

A pixie haircut with wispy bangs frames the face in a way that makes the eyes pop. It’s essential to choose a hairstyle that compliments your features. The longer fringe will highlight your cheekbones while hiding unwanted lines on your forehead.

#2: Dimensional Asymmetrical Pixie with an Undercut

Feel the breeze with an asymmetrical pixie with an undercut! Women with thicker hair who desire this cut should try adding an undercut to create extra time between haircuts. Ask your stylist for a pixie cut for a dimensional look with a balayage.

#3: Before and After Androgynous Pixie

Check out this before and after of an androgynous pixie inspiration. 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 four weeks to keep the sides nice and tight. You can use spray wax on your new haircut. It’s a great product to show off that texture and get the top spiked out without having a heavy feel.

#4: The Angelic White Pixie

Try this miniature hairdo. This light and airy crop make gray hair look extra angelic. It is a perfect transition look if you are looking to grow out your natural gray.

Classic pixie cuts can seem daring, especially if you’ve had long hair most of your life.

Classic, Disconnected Pixie Cuts

#5: Disconnected Pixie Bob

Consider a disconnected pixie cut hairstyle. 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 a styling product with a 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: An excellent pixie hair cut is based on not just facial features but also the shape of your head. A short haircut is influenced by bone structure. Before deciding on length and shape, it’s essential to consider the shape of your head.

#6: Short Edgy Blonde Pixie with an Undercut

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

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

#7: Cute Blonde Messy Pixie Cut

If you have been thinking about a significant 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 growing your pixie, the key is keeping up on your trims every 6-8 weeks. This will allow your hair to grow while keeping a flattering shape and design.

#8: Edgy Silver Pixie with Long Sideburns

If you are searching for an attractive 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 take minimal time to style. Please remember that you will need to get your short hairstyle trimmed often, about every four weeks, to keep its shape.

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

#9: Blonde Side-Swept Pixie with an Undercut

Could you spin up your cut by trying a blonde side-swept pixie with an undercut? Adding an undercut to your hair is a unique pixie 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.

#10: Youthful Pixie Bob Haircut

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

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

A long shaggy pixie paired with a curtain fringe is perfect 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. Short pixie cuts are for more than just older ladies. A classic 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 low maintenance.

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 it feels like more of a cream) from Oribe is excellent for this style. A short hairstyle 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 minimal styling. The pixie cut for thick wavy hair will show off your face and features and works great for many different face shapes.

Any skin tone can wear these colors because of the metallic undertone of the pastels.

When styling a pixie short hairstyles, use a heat protectant from roots to ends and add a blow-dry activated texture spray.

#61: Metallic Short and Choppy Pixie

Modern pixie haircuts are short and choppy with highlights and lowlights. Only some people can pull off short, choppy cuts and keep them feminine. Choose soft shapes if you have strong features. Be prepared to style your hair daily and invest in products to maintain style and color. Listen to your hairdresser if they offer sound advice, and be brave and leave your current one if they offer no ideas.

#62: Shattered Pixie with Choppy Bangs

Opt for a short hair cut, like a shattered pixie-length haircut that’s inspired by Halle Berry. A lot of texture 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 excellent for those with an active lifestyle or career since it takes little time to style, and there is no need for hair ties!

Sophisticated disconnected pixie for fine hair

#63: Sophisticated Disconnected Pixie for Fine Hair

This cross is between a pixie cut and a disconnected undercut with bangs. It’s the perfect combination of cute and feminine yet 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 if you have a heart-shaped, oval, or square face. For closely cropped styles like this, 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.

#64: 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 will create consistency and messy hair. A long pixie haircut with bangs is perfect if you’re looking for a cool, edgy, modern look. It’s great for straight or wavy textured hair.

#65: Super Short Pixie Shag

Shaggy pixie haircuts are great for the stylish woman on the go. It’s an effortless, 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 whimsical 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. Great products that hold your wave and fight frizz make a night and day difference to the results. After your hair is dry, add some Kenra Dry Texture Spray to enhance the texture.

#66: Curly Pixie for Naturally Curly Hair

A short curly pixie cut is a mix of short, edginess, and 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, 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 texture as well. It’s very low maintenance because you can 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 makes it unique and personal for your curly hair and your style!

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

#67: Gorgeous Grey Pixie Cut for Older Women

This pixie is edgy 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. Try Kenra Professional Texture Spray and Layrite Original Pomadeshort hairstyle to create this.

#68: Razor Cut Pixie with Long Bangs

The most feminine pixie cut styles have longer bangs that sweep across the face. You can add some edge to gamine cuts by making it choppy. What’s great about this haircut is that it has the strength of modern short pixie haircuts for women, but the versatility and softness through the top allow you to style it in 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 because you can let it dry naturally or have a quick blow dry and go with the right product.

#69: Edgy & Chic Short Wavy Pixie

If you have wavy hair and looking to try a new and bold haircut, this chic pixie cut may be a great option for you. Pixie cuts can look fantastic on women with wavy hair. It’s important to keep in mind that pixie cuts are a shorter hairstyle, so you need some self-confidence to rock this hairdo. With the correct haircut, a strong firm pomade and a little oil serum combo will quickly achieve this haircut. Remember to add your stronghold hairspray as well for the finishing touch. A wavy pixie is multicultural that can create a whole new look for someone.

Long pixie cuts can be short hairstyles that are professional and 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. 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. Always book in advance so you can be in the salon every four to five weeks to maintain!

#72: Excellent Tapered Pixie Hairstyle

A tapered pixie cut 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. This is it if you’re looking for a wash-and-go pixie cut!

Commonly Asked Questions:

  • 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!
