What is a pixie cut?

It’s a short haircut for women.  The hair is cut above the ear, although some pixie styles will drop below the ear on the side or front.

A well done cut of this sort will be well-layered showing off the shape of the head or parts of it.  It creates the same appearance as slicking back hair in the sense that there isn’t much body beyond the scalp.

One might say it’s a “guy’s” haircut, but it’s not in most cases.  Pixie cuts are done in a way that uniquely for women.

Many options

It’s amazing and one wouldn’t think that such a short style would offer many options.  The different options arise from which parts of the hair are kept longer such as bangs or the sides.  You can also adjust the part or have no part.

It can also be styled foward, backward or to either side.

When you put all these variables together, you end up with many pixie cut options as nicely demonstrated by our gallery above.

Maintaining a Pixie Cut

This is one huge advantage, which is it’s easy to manage, style and maintain.  It’s short so there’s not much management involved. Moreover, it dries quickly as well.  This type of cut is for the woman who likes to make a statement and enjoys a no-fuss lifestyle.  It’s a bit of a minimalist style.

Enough length for curls or waves?

Yes, as you’ll see above, there are pixie cuts with waves and curls.  While it’s a short style, women with wavy or curly hair can easily incorporate those waves and curls into a pixie cut.

For younger women?

While many older women opt for a pixie cut, it’s also popular for younger women too.  I quite like the shortness of it for some women and so it can be a terrific option for young and old alike.

How to choose?

I think choosing a particular pixie style is hard.  There are so many and they really do look different even if similar length.  It’s all about the layering, which areas are kept long, the direction of the sweep as well as face shape, color and hair type.
