1. Tapered Pixie with Long Bangs

2. Long Fringe
Simple and lovely, this pixie haircut relies upon short razored layers and a long fringe.
3. Short Well-Structured Haircut
Lily Collins is wearing a nicely structured pixie cut with soft layers and asymmetrical bangs. The bangs add an edge and the soft layers smooth it out which makes your short cut look less square.
Styling Tip: Brown and brunette are a perfect match in this haircut.
4. Swept-Back Style
If you prefer a cooler and fresher look, then try Anne Hathaway’s swept-back style.
Styling Tip: A little gel in your fringe will help keep hair out of your face.

A sweeter and more feminine cut, you can simply twist your bangs or grow out your hair at the forehead to add more feminine traits, just like Carey Mulligan did.

7. Textured and Piecey
Straight, side swept and lovely, Ginnifer Goodwin’s pixie haircut works well on a variety of hair types. It’s better to keep your hair as straight as possible to accentuate the dramatic beauty of this mane.
Styling Tip: If you love to rock straight or slightly wavy tresses, this cut will look beautiful.
