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!
20 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 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
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
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 are looking for a unique take on blonde hair.
5. Styled Pixie
Give your pixie a little bit of volume and shine by styling it with 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
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 you almost-bob with a platinum silver color for the ultimate pop of color that looks beautiful regardless of the season.
7. The Bowlcut
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
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.
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
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 transitionary period with your natural hair, then this is a great style to wear when styling a TWA.
11. Messy Long Pixie Cut
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. 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 you style. You can also accessorize with cute clips from time to time.
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. 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 being able to embrace bold gravity-defying styles. Our favorite stronghold gel at the moment is TRESemmé Extra Hold Hair Gel

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 bangs.
17. Multi-Colored Long Pixie Cut
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 your pixie cut can feature darker shades of brunette.
18. Bleach Blonde Babe Long Pixie Cut
If you love vintage looks or the old Hollywood glamour aesthetic then add some nostalgia into your life with this look. 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.
