If you want short hair with flair, add texture with soft ringlets. The waves add dimension to an otherwise straightforward pixie. If you’re feeling extra bold, dye your hair a fiery color. Rock this look from day to night and stay chic 24/7.

If you’re going for an edgy, ready-to-rock-and-roll look, then this short hairstyle is definitely for you. Get a pixie cut with short, defined layers. Then, take it one step further by coloring your locks ash gray color and adding texture to hair with a texturizing spray. Now that look will definitely make a statement!

5. Classic pixie cut

Nothing beats a simple and straightforward cut. A classic pixie cut with layered bangs helps you exude an effortless, carefree vibe. If you want to look extra polished, you can simply go for a slicked-back hairstyle with the help of your trusty hairspray. Make sure to take care of your hair with regular treatments to help keep it looking healthy and fresh.

Editor’s tip: Apply TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Treatment Mask on your hair to keep it soft, frizz-free, and easy to style. 

6. Pixie cut with blunt bangs

Blunt bangs can help balance out a long face, so if you have a wide forehead or pointy chin and you want to cut your hair short, try a pixie cut with blunt bangs. Rock this chic look by making sure that your hair is frizz-free. Use an anti-frizz shampoo to help you deal with this nasty hair problem.

Editor’s tip: Say goodbye to dry, frizzy hair when you apply Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream on your damp or dry tresses before you leave the house.
