New season, new length!

Pixie haircuts, while they are extremely stylish, are really not for the faint of the heart, especially if you’ve never worn your hair so short. But with a fresh set of fringe to complement the look, it makes the pixie cut with bangs style extremely irresistible.

To help you on your quest to deciding which pixie haircut you should get, we’ve rounded up our favorite pixie haircut with bangs styles. From asymmetrical to textured fringes, you’d definitely swoon over each of these pixie cut with bangs styles:

Opt for straightening a few pieces to create a more tamed and refined look. Need a styling idea? Learn how you can create an edgy hairstyle for short hair.

For wavy and curly hair textures, you’ll prob need a fringe that works both ways. Ask your stylist for a fringe that has a length that works with straight or curly styles. This way, when you want to switch up the look of your bangs, you can. To style, wake up your texture with Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray.

3. Layered Bangs

Layered to perfection.

If you have fine hair, pixie haircuts with bangs that are layered can help give the illusion of thicker and fuller hair. Before styling, shampoo with Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo followed by Dove Oxygen Moisture Conditioner to increase volume. Finish with a hairspray, like Dove Style+Care Strength and Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray, to encourage movement within your layers.

4. Side-Swept Bangs

Favor the look of grown out bangs smoothed over to the side? Pair your pixie haircut with a set of side-swept bangs. We especially love this look for square face shapes as the fringe positioning helps soften up hard lines.

5. Balayage Fringe

A change of color can give you the update you want on your short pixie cut with bangs. Stick with balayage if you’re going for a look that feels more natural.
