There's more versatility to a pixie haircut than you might think.

If you're hesitating about going super-short, these three ways of wearing a pixie cut will reassure you that you can still show your creativity with different cuts, colors and styling techniques!

Different pixie haircuts

There are many pixie haircut styles, so do your research before you head to the salon, and bring a photo to show your stylist to avoid any misunderstandings.

Pixie haircut with bangs

A way of keeping some length to your pixie cut and drawing attention to the eyes, bangs are brilliant for short hairstyles. They can also help shorten a long face shape or soften an angular one.

Side part pixie

A simple but effective way of making your pixie a cut above the rest is by asking your stylist to cut it into a side part. It instantly gives any look a more contemporary, asymmetrical character.

Pixie haircut for curly hair

Yes, even those with curly hair can work a pixie haircut! Your stylist will find exactly the right length to cut the curls so that they keep their form and don't frizz. It's also a great option for making rebellious curls far easier to manage.

Hair colors for pixie haircuts

The right hair color can transform your pixie into a real statement look. Remember to use hair care for colored hair, like the Vitamino Color A OX collection by Serie Expert, to keep your color bright and long-lasting.

Platinum blond

It seems to be a pattern: those who dare a short pixie are also the kind of women who enjoy playing with bold colors like platinum (cool toned) and champagne blond (warm-toned). Avoid brassy undertones from developing with the Blondifier haircare collection from Serie Expert.

Cool fall brown

This season, autumnal hair colors are moving away from red-toned brunette shades in preference of cooler natural colors like ash, cocoa and dark beige. Prevent your hair color from looking dull by playing with different textures and matte effects when styling.

Dark and glossy

The slightest of warm undertones to a dark hair color will catch the light and give your pixie depth and shimmer. Keep colored hair glossy with a serum and regular hair mask. If your hair has a tendency to become oily quickly, focus your hair care products only the lengths and ends, avoiding the roots. Don't wash your hair too often either: it can lead to the overproduction of oil, and a vicious cycle of over-washing.

Styling your pixie cut

Even when it comes to styling your pixie, there are different techniques and products you can use to create a variety of effects.

Piecey layers

Showcase the different layers to your pixie cut with the Powder-in-Lotion spray by Wild Stylers, which leaves your layers accentuated without weighing down or flattening the hair. It also look great on slightly longer bobs, so you can keep that tousled look even if growing out your pixie cut!

Tousled volume

Keep short hair voluminous with an emphasis on texture and a modern matte finish, using the Deviation Paste from Tecni.ART. Perfect for pixie cuts on naturally curly, wavy and frizz-prone hair types. Apply a small amount to dry or towel-dried hair, using your fingers to create definition.

Silky smooth

Looking for manageability without compromising on style for your pixie cut? Go sleek and shiny (not greasy). Use a comb to gently smooth towel-dried hair into position, then apply a serum like Liss Control (or Liss Control + for rebellious hair). Blow dry with the concentrator attachment in a downwards direction.

Sure about going short with a pixie cut now?
