This accessory can be highly versatile, whether you go for a blinged out head band or something more simplistic. To get inspired, here are some of our favorite ways to accessorize your cropped tops (as in your short pixie) with a headband. Read on:

For a fancy approach, accessorize pixie cuts with embellished hair accessories.

1. Formal Headband

For a formal touch, jazz up your pixie haircut with an embellished headband that looks like a tiara. Opt for wearing this look to a wedding, bridal shower or even to a gala. If you have a cut with longer wispy layers towards the front, use a holding spray to keep it in place. After all, you don’t want to hide your gorgeous hair accessory.

2. Hidden Headband

For a subtle approach, opt for a monochromatic look. Go for a headband that is the same color as your hair and create contrast with a bold ear accessory with mixed colored metals. Try a style like this as a laid back off-duty look, or as bad hair day quick-fix. Styling tip: Use a gel, like Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gelto smooth hair back before sliding on your headband accessory.
