A versatile short cut

Pixie cuts may be short but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of different styling options. In fact, if you get a cut with long or longish bangs, you can create all kinds of different looks from pomps to piecey side-sweeps.

Easy styling ideas

1/ Textured

To make a perfect mess of your chosen pixie, scrunch some wax throughout to create a deconstructed look. Start small and add more as needed, then ruffle with your hands to add texture. Twist individual pieces and break them up again to create a tousled finish, before shaping as desired.

2/ Slick

Smooth a small amount of regular strength gel back through your hair, adding more as needed. You can part it on one side for a polished tomboy look, or you can just push it all back off of your face.

3/ Smooth and sleek

For a sleek, frizz-free look, apply a smoothing cream evenly throughout before drying. Then, once your hair is completely dry, mist it with a high-shine finishing spray to seal your strands against the elements and give your style long-lasting hold.

What do you think? Are you feeling brave enough to go for a pixie cut?
