25 Gorgeous Ways to Style a Long Pixie Cut in 2023

A.K.A. 20 bold and beautiful reasons why you should cut off all your hair.

The long pixie cut (or any pixie haircut) is certainly not for the faint of heart. This cropped style is bold and attention-grabbing, and it simply oozes confidence. Transitioning from long hair to a pixie cut can be freeing and a little scary. Many women who have traded longer locks in favor of the long pixie haircut have talked about the freedom of wearing such a short and carefree style. Not to mention cutting most of your hair off will cut your styling routine time in half too!

25 Long Pixie Haircut Ideas to Inspire Your Next Haircut

We’ve rounded up a range of pixie styles, and whether you’re looking for something slightly overgrown to what would almost be considered a short bob, we’ve found 20 long pixie cuts you’ll want to consider. Read on:

1. Cropped White Pixie

We’re easing into this list with a cropped white pixie that makes a bold statement while still remaining classy. Always remember, you can make a hair statement at any age, and we’re big fans of how the cropped pixie looks on white hair.

2. White Blonde Bangs

If you’re worried about whether or not a pixie cut will flatter you, consider including a feathered fringe in your look. This face-framing addition is always a flattering option. These bangs can also be swept straight to create a forward look when looking to switch up your look a bit.

3. Wavy Volume Long Pixie Cut

Create this long pixie style in well under five minutes.

We mentioned that you’d cut your styling routine (at least) in half, but we think you’ll be amazed by how quickly you can get your hair done. Use a hair straightener to create soft waves for an extra voluminous look. Just don’t forget to add a final touch to your strands. To get maximum hold with extra flyaway control, use TRESemmé Ultra Fine Hair Spray. It’s fast-drying, humidity-resistant, and non-sticky.

4. Play With Color on the Long Pixie Cut

Pair volume with bold color.

If you’re ready to make two bold changes at once, then you should consider dyeing your hair at the same time you cut it. A pinkish-silvery hue will make a major statement, especially if you want a unique take on blonde hair.

5. Styled Pixie

Try one of these streamlined long pixie haircuts.

Give your pixie a little bit of volume and shine by styling it with a product. We recommend the Nexxus Weightless Style Shape & Define Multi-Styler. This product is designed to give short hair a boost of shine and to help even out the strands of your hair as your hair grows out!

6. The Almost Bob

We like to think of this as ‘The Very Long Pixie’, and it’s one of our favorite longer pixie cuts.

If you’re worried about taking the leap straight into a full pixie, then consider this much longer pixie that’s almost a bob. Wear your almost-bob with a platinum silver color for the ultimate pop of color that looks beautiful regardless of the season.

7. The Bowlcut

Throw it back with one of the old-school long pixie hairstyles.

The old-school shaggy bowl cut will help you nail a high-fashion look and enable you to make a major throwback statement.  Keep some length in your hair by wearing your bowl cut low, stopping right above your eyes in the bangs area.

8. All Grown Out

Keep it in line with your jaw.

This is another option if you want to take it slow and aim for an easy transition into the pixie life. The side bang is key to perfecting this look. However, on days when you don’t want your hair in your face, this style also looks sleek in the middle part.

9. Technicolor

It doesn’t get any cooler than this silver-pink style. With colors so intricate, it is important to preserve your hair color. Use Nexxus Color Assure Long Lasting Vibrancy Deep Moisture Masque once a week or every other week to help keep your hair color looking vibrant and fresh over time.

10. A Natural Look

Rock your natural curls in a long pixie.

Embracing your natural texture? That doesn’t mean you can’t rock a pixie. This style looks beautiful in a halo of natural curls. If you are in a transitionary period with your natural hair,  then this is a great style to wear when styling a TWA.

11. Messy Long Pixie Cut

Run your fingers through your hair and go.

As far as styling goes, it doesn’t really get any easier than this. We’ve spoken about the ease of styling a pixie, but this is by far the easiest of all. Just run your fingers through your hair and go.

12. Side Bangs

Try swooped bangs across your forehead.

Ask your stylist for side bangs at the same time you go in for your pixie cut to make double the statement. The beauty of side bangs is that they can also be swept back and bobby pinned down or gelled back to help you create a variety of looks with your style. You can also accessorize with cute clips from time to time.

14. Layered Pixie

Add more layers for more volume.

If you’re looking for a way to thicken up hair that’s thinner, then this is the style for you. Add layers of layers for more volume and the illusion of thicker strands. If you want to further the appearance of voluminous hair, then we recommend using the Suave Thick Look Thickening Cream.

15. Gelled Up Long Pixie Cut

Spike up your strands with a stronghold gel.  One of the best parts about wearing your hair this short is embracing bold gravity-defying styles. Our favorite stronghold gel at the moment is TRESemmé Extra Hold Hair Gel.

16. The Female Fade

Yeah, it’s a thing.

Longer on the top and shorter on the sides? We’re calling it the female fade, and we’re huge fans of this look! This a great pixie cut look for those looking to revamp flat. Create an illusion of volume with a slicked-up bang.

17. Multi-Colored Long Pixie Cut

Play with color for a pixie cut long-style risk.

Add some dimension to your pixie by playing with color and layering different shades. For example, the top of your pixie cut can feature hues of blonde, while the bottom portion of your pixie cut can feature darker shades of brunette.

18. Bleach Blonde Babe Long Pixie Cut

Try an iconic bleach blonde color.

If you love vintage looks or the old Hollywood glamour aesthetic, add some nostalgia to your life with this look. This light shade of bleach blonde hair is highly reminiscent of Old Hollywood red carpet glam.

Shorter styles can sometimes be a little frustrating when your strands start to fall across your forehead and into your line of vision. Style your pixie in a sleek brushed-back style for instant edge and all-day comfort.

Go all in with a slightly long pixie that lets your face shape truly shine. The key to a great look in this style is textured layers. You can even add some extra edge to this look with shaved sides!

21. Razored Pixie Cut with Layers

This pixie cut style is perfect for fine hair, as the razored layers help give volume and texture to your strand. Try also a fun dye to add even more wow factor.

22. Long Pixie Cut With Bangs

Cute and funky, this hairstyle is cool all year round. The longer strands in the front help define your face shape, while the short back gives contrast and texture.
