Different pixie haircuts
There are many types of pixie haircut styles, so we recommend you do your research before you head to the salon, and bring a photo to show your stylist to avoid any misunderstandings.
Pixie haircut with bangs
A great way of keeping some length to your pixie cut and drawing attention to the eyes, bangs are brilliant for shorter hairstyles. They can also help shorten a long face shape or soften an angular one.
Side part pixie
A simple but effective way of taking your pixie a cut above the rest is by asking your stylist to cut it into a side part. It instantly gives any look a more contemporary, asymmetrical character.
Pixie haircut for curly hair
Yes, even those with curly hair can work a pixie haircut! Your stylist will find exactly the right length to cut the curls so that they keep their form and don't frizz. It's also a great option for making rebellious curls far easier to manage.
Hair colours for pixie haircuts

Dark and glossy
The slightest warm undertones added to a dark hair colour will catch the light and give your pixie depth and shimmer. Keep coloured hair glossy with a serum and regular hair mask. If your hair has a tendency to become oily quickly, focus your haircare products only the lengths and ends, avoiding the roots. Don't wash your hair too often either: it can lead to the overproduction of oil, and a vicious cycle of over-washing.
