Pass the scissors please because pixie cuts are trending in 2020, and we are loving it! Pixie cuts have been around since the dawn of time, but over the past few months, we have seen an increase in celebrities chopping off their luscious locks and opting for a bold and sexy pixie cut instead.
Not only will your styling time be cut in half, but there is something so sophisticated about wearing this look. Contrary to popular belief, everyone can pull off a pixie. Don’t believe me? Try it out yourself, and you will see. Here are ten pixie cuts that you will want to copy this summer.
Old Hollywood Pixie
Classic, chic, and SO cute, the old school Hollywood pixie cut is a great look no matter what the occasion or era is. When styling your pixie cut, be sure to finger in a strong gel or mousse. This will help create super-glossy finger waves throughout your hair and make you look like the Old Hollywood star you are. Looking like you came straight from the Gatsby era, you will dazzle everyone around you, old sport.
Layered Pixie Cut
The layered pixie cut is perfect for those of you who may be on the verge of fully committing to a shorter hairstyle but can’t make the full cut. The layered pixie is the best of both worlds: short and choppy layers in the front and longer, face-framing pieces that are perfect for sweeping to the side.
For a short and sassy look, investing in an excellent styling spray is a must. Whether you decide to leave it natural or style it into a sassy up-do, this pixie cut is a great look for anyone who is looking to switch up their hair game this summer.
Shaved Pixie Cut
When you get presented with the chance to look like Scarlet Johansson, you damn well better take it. Pixies are in this year, and if you are looking for a glamorous new hairdo, then the shaved pixie may be perfect for you.
Try this gorgeous shaved pixie cut with long layers in the front and shaved sides. You will look sexy as hell, and styling has never been easier. Add extra gel to the tips for a fun and flirty look you will absolutely love.
Fringy Pixie Cut
If you are looking to take your pixie cut to the next level, then this is your sign to try out this adorable look. Instead of committing to a full-on a layered bang, try these short and textured bangs instead. Not only will you look like a tinker bell (need I say anymore?), but they will add some texture to the top of your head. The barely-there fringe bangs paired with super-choppy layers are the ultimate pix-inspiration (I had to guys), and you will look fabulous.
Close Cut Pixie
The close cut pixie has been a part of Hollywood for as long as I can remember, and for this timeless look, we stan. From Winona Ryder to Michelle Williams, needless to say, we are a big fan of the close-cut pixie. A big fan.
Whether you decide to sleek it back with styling gel or bleach all of the tips, we know you will look as stunning and timeless as the rest.
When in doubt, faux it out. In other words, if you just can’t make the first cut or are having second guesses, then it might be best for you to test the waters and wear a super convincing pixie cut wig. When you just can’t commit to shaving your head, it’s scary; we get it, then this is a great way to have the best of both worlds. Who knows, you may even end up making a permanent switch. You do, you boo.
When you are in need of some Pixie inspo look to the mother of dragons (and pixie cuts), Emilia Clarke. We love the way she parts her pixie way over to one side of her head. This look would look great with styling mousse that will give it the extra volume you have been seeking. This look also will look fabulous when it is curled or if you decide to add some waves.
To get a voluminous yet textured pixie look, you will want to chop in short layers throughout your hair and add a dollop of gel to style your look. For inspiration, look to some of our favorite celebrities like Katy Perry, who pulls this edgy look to a whole new level. We love you, Katy.
Shagged Pixie Cut
Shags come in all shapes and sizes, and one thing we know is that this hairstyle looks stunning with plutonium blonde strands throughout your hair. Don’t believe us? Look at Cara Delevinge as proof. No product is needed to pull the shagged pixie cut off. Simply wash it, let it sit and dry. Let your natural waves do the rest. This look is great for those who want to add some edge to their look or to those who wish to take grunge to a whole new level; either way, we know you will look great!
Warning: This curly pixie cut inspo may make you want one. What better way to accentuate your curls than with a little color dimension? This look proves that brown hair and highlights go perfectly with a curly pixie cut. If your natural hair is a bit on the straight end, then whip out your curling iron and add a few curls to the layers of the pixie cut. You will love the results trust us.
Changing your hair into something new is always a bit scary, so before you decide to cut it, make sure you are ready for a modern look. Change is still good and pixie cuts, well they are even better.
