Shorter hair on women is becoming more and more popular, but what if you’re someone who has been wanting to try short hair and is too scared of it looking bad on you? Or what if you’ve just gotten it cut, but aren’t sure what to do with it? Don’t fret! We’re here to help you out. Here are some great pixie haircuts for short hair to help ease your mind!
1. Fiery Tight Curls Pixie Cut
African American short curly haircut – the curly pixie! Yes, despite what you think, you can make tight curls happen with short hair. Make it even edgier by dyeing the top red (or any colour you prefer, really). Help keep the curls intact with some hairspray!
2. Teased Top Pixie Cut
Curly haircut for black women: If you can’t get your curls as tight as the previous style or if you’re wanting something less curly, try some waves on the sides instead and leave the curls on top! Keep the sides slick and intact with some hair gel or wax. Channel your inner Halle Berry with this look.
3. Side Swept Pixie Cut
If you have straight hair, you can try a regular short pixie cut with a bit of a twist: side swept hair with a bit of a poof. The extra layers give a little more volume and lift. Make sure you use hairspray to keep the style intact!
4. Faux Hawk Pixie Cut
Be extra daring with your look by adding a faux hawk to go with your pixie cut! Curl the hair instead of leaving it straight for a more interesting look. Otherwise, apply some texturizing wax by simply running your fingers through your hair for lift and volume.
5. Caramel Colored Short Wavy Pixie Cut
This pixie cut is actually very similar to the style in the second picture, but with a few differences. The color is different, so if you’re not feeling a sharp colour like black, opt for a softer, more romantic color like this caramel brown. This is more of a mini faux hawk compared to the previous hairstyle which works perfectly when your hair is still in that awkward phase where you’re trying to grow it out.
6. Flirty Feminine Curly Pixie Cut
If you want a combination of straight and curly hair, this is a perfect way to do it! Leave one side straight and wispy while curling the rest of your hair on top and on the other side. This is perfect for a date! Make sure to give the curls some texture with some curling cream.
7. This Girl is on Fire Curly Pixie Cut
Instead of curling your entire head, switch things up a little bit–grow your fringe out and curl it! Let the back be natural and effortless without adding a lot of work to it. Let all the attention be on those luscious curls that frame your face ever so perfectly.
8. Thin, Wispy Layers
This is a beautiful look that takes very little work to do. It’s perfect “I just got out of bed and hardly did anything to my hair” hair. You know, the fresh-out-of-bed look so many sexy vixens rock. Just put in a little texturizing cream to give your layers a bit of definition and you’re good to go.
9. All Curls Pixie Cut
This is for those of you with short hair that don’t have the sides shaved or anything fancy. You don’t need to perfectly straight hair to have a pixie cut! If you have naturally bold curls like these, just give them a little bit of curl cream for definition and bounce and head out of the door. You don’t need to spend so much time in the morning fussing over your hair!
10. Mid-Growth Pixie Cut

11. Loose Curls Pixie Cut

This gives a messier and more carefree look over the very put together look that the tighter curls give. You could go from the previous look to this just by running your fingers through your hair!
12. Dark Auburn Curly Pixie Cut
