Pixie for Straight Hair
The beauty of a pixie isn’t just in the swoop. The sweet style can work with any hair texture, especially if your hair is straight and sleek rather than textured.
Go with a choppier cut and experiment with short and stacked layers. Even without some playful mousse, this style is an effortless winner for straight hair.
Thick and Shaggy
If your craving a cropped cut and your hair is gorgeously thick, a shaggy pixie will add style to volume. When you have a lot of hair, it’s easy to get weighed down, even your hairstyle is short.
A beautiful, tousled mop with a thick fringe and ends that dust the outer edges of the cheekbones is youthful and fresh if you have lots of hair to work with. Not big on styling? Run shine spray through your shaggy pixie for a casual, tousled look.
Gorgeous Layered Pixie
It’s easier than you think to rock a pixie cut while still maintaining length. A longer layered pixie is perfect for showing off any dimensional highlights.
Long, side swept bangs bring a layered pixie to life. Fortunately, all this style needs is a two-minute blowout to bring it to life!
Perfectly Stacked Pixie
Bring out your inner Audrey Hepburn with a stacked pixie. High, short layers starting at the nape of your neck creates a beautiful stacked effect at the back of the head.
To avoid any bulky texture, a stacked long pixie works best on straight hair textures. The look works perfectly if you’re going for an air of glamour and sophistication.
Retro Pixie for Textured Hair
If you’re looking for a fashionable way to wear your bob, consider soft, retro curls for a fun night out or special event. By adding waves at the temple, this retro pixie leans out rounder face shapes.
To achieve this retro look, give your hair a deep side part. Set your hair with small sponge or hot rollers and pin them while you’re doing your makeup. Before you head out, remove the pins, give them a quick brush through, and set with hairspray.
Icy Purple Undercut
An undercut is the ultimate long pixie cut compromise. The hair on the sides of your head is shaved for easy maintenance while the top of your head can display any beautiful color or texture you’re working with.
This look is often for the playful and fearless gal, so don’t be afraid to try out a beautiful color like this smoky lavender. To keep hair silky and healthy, use a deep conditioner at least once a week.

If you love wearing your hair parted to the side, then lustrous swooping bangs will complete your perfect long pixie cut. This style is very versatile, but has a smoothing effect on thick hair.

Long and Textured Fringe
This raspberry ‘do is the pixie cut of dreams! The long fringe adds romance to an otherwise edgy look. You might prefer to keep your color natural, but these textured layers provide the perfect opportunity for colorful highlights.

Shaved Asymmetrical Pixie
