Going for the crop is a huge decision; we all know that. Therefore, you might need something to soften the blow with an extended pixie cut.
Usually, stylists come up with the solution of the extended pixie cut.
It’s not precisely a chopped or cropped pixie in the true sense of the word so that you don’t have to suffer that much.
But it is still the short hair you’ve always been dreaming of.
In other words, it’s a middle ground or compromise solution. And a pretty one at that.
Here are our 50 adorable long pixie cut ideas for you to choose from!
1. The Long Pixie Cut with Over Swept Bangs
Also, if you decide to go for the long pixie cut with bangs, we have a great solution so that you can spice things up once in a while.
Then, use some hair wax to sweep it up over your head. In this way, it will look like a completely new haircut.
2. The Raven Long Pixie Haircut
Also, a very feathery pixie cut, raven in color, works perfectly well for the fall and winter alike.
Then, you can pair it off with your favorite nose ring and an oversized sweater, thus leaving your entire elongated neck exposed.
3. The Platinum Long Pixie Cut
Also, an asymmetrical pixie, such as this one, in perfect platinum, will do amazing things for your eyes and skin tone.
Then, it will highlight and enlighten both, giving you a fairy glow. It’s perfect for summertime when we’re all looking for that dewy look.
4. The Chunky Long Pixie Hairstyle
Also, what we loved most about this hairstyle was its ends. They are very chunky and choppy. You can ask your hairstylist to use a razor to get that look.
Pro tip – it’s best that you don’t attempt this at home because you might not be able to pull this off.
5. The Angled Long Pixie Haircut
Then, an angle, long pixie is intended for wavy hair. To be able to copy it, you will need some hair wax and a blow-dry.
Also, simply run your fingers through your hair with the hair wax as you blow dry it and arrange the hands in this messy yet stylish tangle.
6. The Wavy Long Pixie Cut Hairstyle
Then, there’s another fairy that requires some props. For this one, you’ll need your old curling iron.
Also, part your hair sideways and use the iron to create some curls or beach waves on the longer half. Moreover, apply some hairspray to keep everything in place.
7. The Jaimie Alexander Hairstyle
Also, you may remember actress Jaimie Alexander from the Thor movies where she played the Lady Warrior Sif. In real life, she sports a pitch-black extended pixie cut, and it’s a good thing she does. She looks stunning!
8. The Face-Flattering Long Pixie Haircut
Then, there’s a reason why this pixie is called like this. It looks good on anyone and any type of face out there.
Also, there’s just something about that mangled mess of soft curls that frames the contours of the face beautifully and invitingly.
9. The Julianne Hough Pixie Hairstyle
Also, Julianne Hough went for quite the look change from medium-length wavy hair to this short pixie.
Then, she looks amazing as this extended pixie cut gives her a sweet and chic appearance.
10. The Chic Long Pixie Haircut
Also, speaking of chic, here’s the French version of the fairy. It’s asymmetrical and straight to the point of being blunt.
Then, you can, of course, tame it and keep it in one place with the aid of a few bobby pins if you so desire.
11. Medium Pixie with Long Bangs Hairstyle
Also, if you decided on a simple and conventional pixie cut, one way you can jazz it up a little is by wearing your long bangs.
Then, a bonus to this is that you will not only look very cool, but they will also frame your face nicely.
12. The Sexy Long Pixie Haircut
Also, far from making one look like a boy, as some might argue, pixie cuts can be very sexy. We recommend that you wear yours with a smoldering smoky eye and a pair of statement earrings to accentuate your hotness.
13. The Aqua Pixie Hairstyle
Then, don’t be afraid to go for bold, unconventional colors. This is one of the great benefits of having a pixie cut. Also, short hair means that you can quickly try out different colors. This is an awesome shade of aqua green.
14. The Undercut Aline Hairstyle
Then, what’s better than a long pixie cut? A pixie cut that comes with a surprise underneath. Take this aline cut that has a hair design.
Also, how cool, modern, and fresh is that? We also love the dark color of the hair with just a few streaks of ruby red on top.
15. The Side Cropped Long Pixie Cut
Then, just as the name suggests, this pixie has its sides all cropped out almost to a minimum, while the top needs to have a bit of volume. The bangs here are asymmetrical and quite heavy, while the color is a uniform, stony gray.

17. The Evan Rachel Wood Long Pixie Hairstyle
Also, though we love the architecture and height of her long pixie cut as a whole, we simply adore Evan Rachel Wood’s hair color.
Then, a medium honey blonde with burnt caramel roots lights up her entire face and highlights her baby blue eyes.
18. The Mia Wasikowska Long Pixie Haircut
Our very own Alice in Wonderland also went for the extended pixie cut, only that hers is long in the front, where she decided to sport the unicorn quiff.
We also like the color of her hair, a beautiful ombre brown with blonde ends that matches her eyebrows.
19. The Lilly Collins Long Pixie Hairstyle
Also, actress and model Lilly Collins cannot help being elegant no matter what she does. Even her long pixie cut is regal.
Then, it’s a side-parted bouffant in a super dark toffee brown that almost matches the color of her eyes. Wowza!

Then, which one do you prefer? Well, it doesn’t matter since you will get both with this excellent and modern long-pixie cut.
However, we must warn you that this cut is a bit high maintenance, so consider it before you get it.
23. The Miley Cyrus Long Pixie Hairstyle
Also, here is quite a fabulous long pixie cut from singer/actress Miley Cyrus, who decided to combine a faux hawk with a high pompadour, all in a glorious shade of butter white.
Then, if you want to be a little copycat and get it, make sure your roots are a bit darker than the rest to keep it looking natural.
24. The Natalie Portman Pixie Haircut
Then, Black Swan is yet another Hollywood actress who benefits greatly from an extended pixie cut because of her slim and angular face. Although this picture’s cut is almost boyish, she still looks feminine and delicate.
25. The Scarlet Johansson Long Pixie Cut
Also, the opposite of a delicate and total ballerina, like Natalie Portman, is Scarlet Johansson.
Then, the actress who plays the Black Widow looks like a complete badass in this extended pixie cut, one who would be capable of taking one or two supervillains on her own.
26. The Charlize Theron Long Pixie Hairstyle
Also, by far one of the most beautiful women in the world and the face of the J’Ador Dior perfume for years, Charlize has fallen prey to the extended pixie cut.
Then, and it’s a good thing that she did. We get to admire a lot more of her next-to-perfection facial structure.
27. The Shailene Woodley Long Pixie Haircut

Also, it is a hair goal for all of us, especially with this messy extended pixie cut she wore proudly on the Red Carpet every chance she got.

30. The Michelle Williams Long Pixie Haircut
Then, she might have played the biggest bombshell of all time, Marilyn Monroe, on the silver screen.
However, in her private life, Michelle Williams loves to keep it down to the basics with a sandy beige pixie cut and brown-based makeup.
31. The Halle Berry Long Pixie Hairstyle
Also, actress Halle Berry has a different approach to the extended pixie cut than her fellow actresses.
Then, she loves spikes in her hair and never misses an opportunity to show them off. She always wears her hair in beautiful dark coffee color.
32. The Mandy Moore Long Pixie Cut
Also, she loves to see how beautifully Mandy Moore has grown up and matured. Her dark caramel extended pixie cut shows precisely that.
Also, it shows off her age, complimented by that set of golden statement earrings and the smoky eye.
33. The Wavy Long Pixie Cut
Then, if you have wavy hair and want a pixie, nothing is more accessible when it comes to styling.

This time you can see her in a beautiful chestnut with just a tint of red color that accentuates her green eyes and creamy complexion.
38. The Anne Hathaway Long Pixie Cut
The extended pixie cut is also a great pro tip for looking younger and more comprehensive. It illuminates your entire face and elongates your neck, wiping off some five to ten years in a heartbeat.
That works especially if you try a darker shade on your hair rather than a lighter one.
