Pixie haircuts for women: 21 ideas to inspire your next ‘do

5 min read

Pixie haircuts are a timeless classic of a hairstyle, and that’s a fact. From sixties starlets like Mia Farrow and Twiggy, to modern day muses like Zoë Kravitz, the pixie crop’s popularity has barely wavered through the decades.

So what makes these particular short hairstyles for women so very appealing? Much shorter than bob hairstyles, the key is in their simplicity; a pixie cut is effortless and chic, with a bit of androgynous charm thrown in. Not to mention your wash-and-dry time is considerably lessened when you have such short hair. Win-win.

“Lockdown has forced some to grow out their pixie and, having come through the other side of the dreaded ‘in-between’ stage, we are seeing a lot of people embracing length on top and going for an all-round softer look,” Bobby Collier, hair stylist at Larry King Salons, tells woman&home. “Think Gwyneth Paltrow circa ‘97.”

Michael Shaun Corby, Global Creative Director for Living Proof, adds: “The pixie of this season is actually a bi-level pixie that’s a little longer in the back—think Miley Cyrus. This gives you so many more options when styling, for example pulling some hair forward on the neck, or being able to tie the longer pieces up into a style.”
