A.K.A. 20 bold and beautiful reasons why you should cut off all your hair.
The long pixie haircut (or any pixie haircut) is certainly not for the faint of heart. This cropped style is bold, attention-grabbing and it simply oozes confidence. The transition from long hair to 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:
20 Long Pixie Haircut Ideas
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 then consider including a feathered fringe in your look. This face-framing addition is an always flattering option.
3. Wavy Volume
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! Spray Nexxus Promend Heat Protecting Mist before styling to keep your hair healthy and strong.
4. Play With 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.
5. Styled Pixie
Give your pixie a little bit of volume and shine by styling it with product. Run a small amount of Dove Style+Care Volume Amplifier Mousse through the front of your hair for extra shine and volumized hold.
6. The Almost Bob
If you’re worried about taking the leap straight into a full pixie, then consider this much longer pixie that’s almost a bob.
7. The Bowlcut
The old-school shaggy bowlcut will help you nail a high fashion look and enable you to make a major throwback statement.
8. All Grown Out
This is another option if you want to take it slower and aim for an easy transition into the pixie life.
It doesn’t get any cooler than this silver-pink style.
10. A Natural Look
Embracing your natural texture? That doesn’t mean you can’t rock a pixie. This style looks beautiful in a halo of natural curls.
11. Messy Pixie
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
Ask your stylist for side bangs at the same time you go in for your pixie cut to make double the statement.
14. Layered Pixie
If you’re looking for a way to thicken up hair that’s on the thinner then this is the style for you. Add layers of layers for more volume and the illusion of thicker strands.
15. Gelled Up
Spike up your strands with a stronghold gel, like Suave Professionals Firm Control Sculpting Gel. One of the best parts about wearing your hair this short is being able to embrace bold gravity-defying styles.
16. The Female Fade
Longer on the top and shorter on the sides? We’re calling it the female fade and we’re huge fans of this style.
Add some dimension to your pixie by playing with color and layering different shades.
18. Bleach Blonde Babe
This light, light shade of bleach blonde hair is highly reminiscent of Old Hollywood red carpet glam.
19. All Brushed Back
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.
20. Cropped and Cute
Go all in with a slightly long pixie that lets your face truly shine.
