Style suggestions for pixie cuts

When going for the pixie crop, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re abandoning any chance of versatility with your hair.

Short cuts can be styled just the same as longer hairdos, which is why we’re here to give you some helpful tips on how to mix things up.

You can still get a fringe if you have a pixie cut – you just want to make sure it isn’t chopped too harsh. Taking inspiration from someone like Robin Wright, opt for wavy, soft bangs that flow from the top your crown onto your forehead.

Go for a side sweep for a feminine touch, and if you’re worried about your fringe looking too thick simply thin out the strands with a comb or your fingers. It may be tempting to get the fringe cut short but to give it a more relaxed feel, keep it lengthy so it blends well into the sides.

Or you can give it oomph by adding volume, perfect as a fun touch for a night out. Think Miley Cyrus with this look; thanks to the short length of your hair there’s nothing from standing it upright. It also adds the illusion of having longer tresses as you style it upwards.

Use a volumising product, like TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Amplifying Mousse or Redken Thickening Lotion 06 All Over Body Builder, and run it up towards the end of your hair as you dry it, leaving ample amount of height. You could even give your head a flip if you fancy adding even more volume while drying it.

Texture is fun to add as well, using a styling product and gently tugging at the ends of different strands to tease them into different directions. We suggest trying out the likes of Bumble and bumble - Bb.Texture creme or TIGI Bed Head Manipulator.

Something as simple as changing your parting can also give your short hair a new look. Switch from side to side, or arrange your hair from a spot in the middle of your crown. This will leave you with different lengths in different areas each time you change up. It also gives you the perfect chance to accessorise, whether it is with a headband or hair slides for a cute touch.
