There is a myth going about, surrounding the idea of the pixie cut.
The myth says that the pixie does not flatter everyone and that you must have a particular face shape or certain features.
We believe this to be highly inaccurate. Consequently, this is the idea we are here to prove today: everyone can sport a pixie.
Therefore, we have rounded up 62 pixie cut examples for you to choose from and get inspired by.
1. The Simple Pixie Cut
The first idea is always the simplest. Here is a traditional pixie cut that leaves the whole of your neck exposed but that also keeps a tuft of hair in the front. Go for a tousled and messy look to style it.
2. The Slick Pixie
At the other end of the messy pixie cut we’ve shown above is the very slick and shiny one. This pixie cut is more of a very short bob, borrowing that hairstyle’s trademark features. In addition, you can part your hair sideways to create the illusion of bangs.
3. The Twiggy Style
In case you want to go for a supermodel look, the likes of Twiggy and her company, this is the pixie cut for you. It’s incredibly short, yet not short enough to make you look like a teenager boy. In other words, it’s perfection in a haircut!
4. The Pixie Cut with Bangs
You may also add a touch of flair to your short pixie by letting some bangs survive the scissors. Tousle them around with some mouse for a mess head effect.
5. The Textured Pixie
Here is another one which borrows heavily from the bob. Evidently, we don’t mind, as the bob is beautiful as well. Therefore, this haircut is caught somewhere between a bob and a pixie cut. Ask your stylist to layer it for you. In this way, you will manage it better on your own.
6. The Army-Style Pixie
This lovely lady shows us what army glamour looks like with her metallic grey hair and shorter than short pixie cut. Therefore, if you want to replicate the look, you can get a buzz cut in the back and some short bangs in the front.
7. The Two-Colored Pixie Cut
Do you know what is a great way of showing off just how proud you are of your new pixie? Dying your hair in two separate colors. Add a darker tone for the under hair and back side and a lighter, fun one on top.
8. Volume on Top
A pixie cut can also help add some inches if you’re not entirely satisfied with your height. When you get your hair cut, you can leave some longer strands on top of your head and then puff them up with some mousse.
9. Gun Metal Grey
Go one step further and dye your hair a lovely gun metal grey color. It will add depth and texture to your pixie cut. In addition, it will make it look even more fresh and stylish than it already is.
10. The 2000s
Even though right now we are going through a revival of the 90s, that doesn’t mean you cannot borrow from the 2000s too. Here is a pic of the teen idol Mandy Moore sporting her famous chocolate pixie cut.
11. Pixie Cut and Braid
One way of looking like a real fairy is by also braiding your hair, on top of your pixie cut. The lovely lady in the picture looks absolutely stunning in an icicle blonde shade, pixie cut, and messy braid at the front.
12. The Long Pixie
No, this is not a bob, as one might think. In fact, it’s a long pixie cut. It’s also layered and straightened with an iron to give it a retro vibe. In addition, the makeup is on the same lines, with an electric purple eyeshadow as the focal point.
13. The Asymmetrical Pixie Cut
Nothing says youth and fun like this asymmetrical pixie cut. It comes in a fantastic deep chestnut color, but you can dye yours any way you want. Put a comb through the bangs for a slick finish.
14. The Shaggy Pixie
Our use of words here is not accidental, as the lovely lady is holding the cutest dog. Take a cue from her and sport your very own shaggy pixie cut in a natural color.
15. Frozen to Perfection
Here is another cute youngster who has decided to turn to frozen white blondes. She is also donning a mesmerizing pixie cut complete with scruffy bangs and smoky eye makeup.
16. The Pixie Cut for Thick Hair
A pixie cut is, in fact, perfect if you happen to have very thick hair. Not only will you lose all the length of the strands, but the haircut will also take away much of the hair’s body and volume.
17. Ash Blonde Pixie
Blonde cuties can’t seem to get enough of the pixie cut. Therefore, here is one more sporting a very messy and relaxed updo.
18. An Attractive Layered Pixie
Pixie cuts of this sort are very alluring and becoming. They have sharp edges which frame the face perfectly leaving the length of your gracious neck exposed.

And we called this one the spiky, since we’re on that subject. We do believe the reason is quite clear. With this hairstyle you get a lot of spikes on top of your head, for a true messy bed head situation. As a consequence, you can look relaxed and poised at the same time.

Take a curling iron to your top locks to add some texture into your pixie cut. If you dye your hair ice blonde, make sure to leave the roots a bit darker, for a more natural feel to it.
51. Do You French?
You will now because this pixie cut can almost make you hear the crowds chattering away on Champs Elyse. In addition, the long faux bangs simply ask for a little polka dot bow to be added to the look.

We’ve talked about messy before but this one takes the cake. The very long sandy bangs drape the face while the short brown back complements the length of the neck.
