Polished pixie

Taking its style cue from iconic fashionistas such as Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy, the polished pixie is a style that has been worn throughout the ages, continually growing in popularity, thanks to its sleek and clean-cut aesthetic. And as you can see from the Instagrammer above, it even works a treat for ladies with natural tresses, too!

So, ask your stylist to incorporate lots of soft, brushed down layers, and style with a healthy dose of the VO5 Sublime Sleek Creation Hairspray, for a shiny finish, that’ll turn more than a few heads! Credit: @kyrzayda_

Jagged pixie 

If you managed to see the Haider Ackermann spring/summer 2017 show, then you’ll know that the punk look is a hot-to-trot style among the fashion pack! But if the extreme spikes of the runway are too intense for your taste, then you can still easily tap into the trend, simply by updating your pixie with lots of spikey layers, which will help to elevate this classic cut.

Editor’s tip: This jagged pixie cut is also a great way to add lots of shape, movement, and texture, and can achieved with a small amount of the VO5 Classic Styling Soft Moulding Wax. The true beauty of this product, is that it allows you to work and re-work your style whenever you please! Credit: @mallory.fay

Mohawk style pixie

Fun, edgy, and perfectly equipped to make a big fashion statement, this rebellious cut first cropped up on our radar during the 1960s, when non-conventional styling invaded the fashion scene. And today, this Mohawk-style pixie is more popular than ever!

Clipped super short on the back and sides, and retaining the length on top, the extreme aesthetic isn’t for the faint of heart. But if you are brave enough to dare this look, then you’ll open yourself up to a world of amazing styling opportunities to experiment with – think bold colours, textures, and different accessoriesCredit: @tochi_tms

Side swept pixie

If you’re thinking about switching up your look with a short ‘do, but don’t want anything too edgy, then opting for an ultra-feminine pixie cut with a side swept fringe, is the ideal choice for you! We’d recommend keeping some long layers at the front of your crop, as this will provide you with some extra versatility, allowing you to mold your pixie cut whenever you feel like a change. Ah, one cut, so many ways to rock it! Credit: @tanja_978
