Well, the charm of the classic never fades away, to be honest. We too love the plain old yet catchy layers of the classic pixie cut. This one's overall short and is cut in a way that it suits all face shapes flawlessly. Further, as we said, a classic pixie is usually fuss-free and does not require much maintenance or even styling. You can of course use styling products such as hair gels to add your own quirk and personality to the haircut.

This one is bold, beautiful and brash. Honestly, if you can carry a brutally short haircut with ease, this is the one for you. It’s a pixie cut that is stylish in its own way. Think of it like a buzz cut pixie. This is especially suited for those who have a thin and angular face and have thick-textured hair.

Are you a fan of those 60s and 70s looks when the actresses went short with hair, yet had a grace about them? You should take a look at the pixie bob. This one is best for those who have a round face as it gives you a fresh and feminine look, even after chopping off your tresses. You can even style it up in a sleek and smooth finish for that androgynous look.

A pixie haircut is essentially a short one. So what do we mean by a long pixie? It simply means that your hair chops are slightly longer to give you more room to play around and style. The longer layers are usually in the front to frame the face. This one is a great option for those with a round or even a square face.

 

5. The bangs

Pixie haircut with a bang? Is that possible? Hell, yeah, it is. If you want to add an edge to your pixie haircut, go for pixie bangs to match your overall vibe. If you have a sharp jawline and angular features, this one is tailor-made for you. If you have an oval face (oh, the perfection!), go for blunt bangs and you can pull off that gorgeous elf look.

Is pixie cut good on dense and thick hair? Yes, it is an obvious choice if you want to go really short with your mane. But what about those who have thin and fine hair? Well, we have an option for that too. If you add just the right care and styling to your regimen, you can pull off a pixie haircut on finer hair too. The key is to give your hair more volume. After all, a flat pixie haircut does not look good. You can go with disconnected layers or even choppy pieces for that. Another option is to go for a side-swept fringe. All these options will create an illusion of volume.

If you have really thick and dense hair, you really do not need to worry if you are going for a pixie haircut. In fact, it’s the perfect combination. You can manage it well. It dries quickly, it gets washed quickly, it gets styled swiftly, and honestly, looks great. We can go on and on, but yes, that’s the truth. Pixie cuts and thick hair are truly a match made in beauty heaven.

Sounds quite intimidating, doesn’t it? The undercut? Just kidding, it’s just a pixie cut with a curious and catchy element of an undercut. Now, an undercut is usually a men’s hairstyle and quite a popular one too. But you can rock it when you combine it with a pixie cut. Just ensure that you have a longer pixie cut at the top so that you have ample volume.

 

9. The faux hawk

Talking about an edge, if you can have an undercut, you can have a faux hawk as well. This is even bolder and is a great option for those with a long pixie cut. It adds just the right element of edge to your hairstyle and freshens up the whole look. Our suggestion? Comb the sides flat and fluff up the crown area.

As the name suggests, this one is all about going messy, shaggy and hella experimental with the pixie cut. This shaggy pixie is reminiscent of a retro look with a deliberately messy vibe. Also, if you ever wish to grow out your pixie this one is a great option

This one’s the perfect choice for those who slightly limp or thin hair, as it adds texture and volume to the pixie cut. It also adds volume to the hair. This one gives a casual and bohemian look and this best for those who crave a carefree style.

Again, this one’s a bolder take on the usual pixie haircut, and not for the fainthearted. If you are someone who doesn't like to experiment with your tresses, stay far away from this one. On the contrary, if you do like to try new and fun things, a spiky pixie cut is the one for you. This one is created using a normal hairdryer and lots of hair gel, to create spikes in your existing pixie. Also, this one does not look neat. It is meant to be messy.

 

13. The Asian cut

This one tends to lean on the feminine side and gives a softer look as it is created to suit the Asian features. As a result, even though this is a pixie cut, the layers and chops tend to be longer, so that there is more room to play with and style. Also, this one is smoother and straighter than the rest of the pixie haircuts and leaves your hair in messy waves that frame your face softly and beautifully.

 

14. The highlighted cut

If you want to add an edge to your existing pixie haircut, but do not want to cut it further or into any drastically different shape, this is one option you can look at. Highlights in a pixie haircut look edgy and totally gorgeous. If you have dark or brownish hair, red and auburn highlights can lift up your entire look, thus giving an illusion of hair on fire, albeit in a good way. Bring the charm on!
