1. Colorful Pixie

Wild hair colors have gained just as much popularity as pixie haircuts 2016. These two trends are even better when you combine them! We’re in love with this pink ombre pixie haircut that just looks gorgeous on a short crop.

2. Shaggy Pixie

2016 saw the resurgence of the shag hairstyle. On pixie length hair the shag adds a lot of layers (which is great for thick hair) and gives a gorgeous tousled look. Add some extra texture to your pixie by scrunching in the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray.

3. Long Pixie

The long pixie gives you tons more options of different styles you can wear! With a long pixie you can do this fun swooping, voluminous look, or you can wear a curled short hair look. Whatever style you choose, you’ll look gorgeous in this super flattering cut.

4. Super Short Pixie

Another option that we loved seeing in 2016 was the micro pixie cut. The low cut look can give you a vintage vibe so keep it modern by going for a shiny finish. Amp up the shine in your hair by applying a light mist of the Catwalk By TIGI Camera Ready Shine Spray.

5. Curly Pixie

Pixie hairstyles 2016 saw a lot more people with gorgeous ringlets making the chop. We love the look of a good curly pixie, it’s such a romantic cut for curly hair. Like with any hair type, if you’re making the leap from longer hair to a pixie, make sure you go to a hair stylist you trust. You’ll want to make sure that your pixie cut is flattering for your face and works well with your curl structure.

6. Piecey Pixie

Adding a piecey texture is a good way to take any pixie cut and make it look more modern. We saw lots of piecey pixie cuts in 2016 that was all about textured layers and volume. To style, simply apply some of the S Factor By TIGI Creamy Molding Wax to your hair to define your short layers.

7. Buzz Cut

2016 has been the year of the buzz cut for both men and women. Buzz cuts on women show off your beautiful face and your shining confidence. No hiding behind your hair with this look! You can wear a super short crop like this one or let it grow a half inch longer for a chic, long buzz.

8. Mini Afro

We were pretty obsessed with the teeny weeny fro in 2016 and we think you can see why! The mini ‘fro is so much fun and a bit easier to maintain than a longer afro. As with all curly haircuts, we recommend that you amp up the moisture to get shiny healthy hair. Mark your calendar to do a mask every other week and get regular trims to maintain this look.
