20 Modern and Classic Ways to Style a Long Pixie Cut

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. The transition 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 been known to talk about the freedom that comes with 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!

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

Combine bangs with a slightly long pixie haircut.

If you’re worried about whether or not a pixie cut will flatter you then consider including a feathered fringe in your look. This face-framing addition is an always 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’ll 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 protect your strands!

4. Play With Color on the Long Pixie Cut
