Never underestimate the power of the pixie cut + black hair!
Want to get on the new year, new you hype? We get you. But if the sea of bright colours and wacky 2018 hairstyle predictions has got you in a muddle, know that we’ve got your back. To help you slay your year and your natural hair, it’s high time you tried the style that’s on everyone’s lips: the black pixie cut.
Regardless of whether you’ll get a pixie cut wig, weave or take the plunge for real, here are the reasons why we’re living for black pixie hairstyles this season.
5 reasons you should get a black pixie cut, like, right now
1. It’s fashion-approved
But just because it’s seen on the glitterati season after season, that doesn’t mean you need a glam squad to achieve the look! You only need to be clear with your stylist on how you want your pixie cut to be and you’ll leave the salon with a ‘do that will never be passé.
2. There’s a black pixie cut for every face shape
Naysayers might convince you that this cut will only suit a certain face shape or hair type, but we’re here to remind you that black pixie hairstyles can be tailored to flatter any face shape and mane texture.
Now, if you need more reassurance and want to know more about how to style the look for your face, rest assured our pixie face shape guide has got you covered.

2. It looks fierce with a fringe!
The best thing about rocking a pretty pixie cut on black hair? You can also pair it with a on-trend fringe of your choice, like Rihanna has done. Not only will you be slaying two trends at once, but it will also ensure you steal the spotlight at your next event.
4. You can play around with hair accessories and colour trends
In this example, Alexandra Shipp has tressed up her pixie cut black hair with a tiara headband, and guess what? She’s killing it!
See? A pixie cut for black hair textures can be taken from 0 to 100 with just a simple mane move. Thanks for the tip, A!
5. But most importantly, it’s a low-maintenance style
Now, if you’re wondering if a pixie cut for black hair is hard to maintain, we’re here to set the record straight: it all depends on whether you get it done for real or not (black pixie cut wigs and weaves would naturally require more effort).
But, generally speaking, since it’s shorter in length, less maintenance is required. Honestly, what’s not to love about black pixie hairstyles?!
