Pixie cuts are glamorous, fun, and low-maintenance. Having a pixie cut can save you a ton of time and effort in your daily styling routine. Most pixie cuts take 10 minutes or less to style in the morning, leaving you with more time to hit the snooze button or linger a little longer at the kitchen table with your cup of coffee.
Many women are surprised to learn that pixie cuts are as diverse as they are versatile. There are countless different pixie cut styles that are designed to effectively flatter a wide variety of different face shapes, skin tones, etc. There is no such thing as a face that can’t pull off a pixie cut. If you think you can’t rock a pixie cut, you just haven’t found the right pixie cut. Check out these 10 trendy pixies to explore your diverse range of options for everyone’s favorite timeless, close-cropped cut.
1. Asymmetrical Auburn Pixie with Long Side-Swept Fringe
This asymmetrical auburn pixie cut is warm, bright, and full of personality. Its asymmetrical cut–with longer layers on one side and shorter layers on the other side–adds eye-catching yet subtle edgy style to this pixie.
If cropping your hair into a pixie intimidates you, go for a pixie that features longer layers in front like this pixie’s side-swept fringe. Having a little bit of length in front can help you feel more comfortable and less exposed. Plus, face-framing fringe is super flattering for your features.
2. White Blonde Pixie with Buzzed Sides and Fringe
This bold, no-nonsense pixie cut is cute, modern, and flattering. Buzzed sides give this daring pixie cut extra edge and make it even quicker and easier to style in the morning. Piece-y fringe in front adds femininity to this close-cropped cut.
All-over white blonde color makes this pixie even more eye-catching. For a bolder, more glamorous look, pair your pixie with long, dangly earrings like in the picture above.
3. Silver Pixie with Volume on Top
Feel bolder and more confident every day with this eye-catching cropped silver pixie cut. Its bright silver color and voluminous layers make this modern pixie cut impossible to ignore.

4. Spiky Auburn Pixie with Undercut and Shadow Root
This auburn pixie features an edgy undercut with a seamless fade. Longer, spiky layers on top give this pixie volume and dimension and prevent it from looking flat.
A brunette shadow root adds dimension to this style and makes it look more natural. Plus, this natural root keeps you from having to run back and forth to the salon every two weeks for a color touch-up–the roots of a pixie grow out visibly a lot more quickly than you might expect.
5. Straight Dark Red Pixie with Long Side Bangs
