Attention all of those rocking a pixie haircut: Let it be known that having short hair doesn’t mean you get cut short on styling options. Whether you want to spice things up for a regular day at work or need to pop out for a big event, there are tons of different ways to create unique and chic hair looks on shorter strands. To help generate some inspiration and creativity, we gathered a list of ten different styling options that you can try at home or bring to your stylist at your next appointment. 

Spiky 
Nothing says “cool girl” more this a platinum blond spiky hairstyle. Feel free to leave your strands your natural hair color, but consider styling your hair upward for a chic, rocker look. Because you’re going to need a strong product to ensure your hair stays up straight, we recommend the Redken Rough Paste 12 Working Material as it gives your hair tousled texture with strong, sculpting hold.

S-Waves
S-waves or finger waves are such a classic look for pixie haircuts. It gives us old Hollywood glam vibes making it perfect for a special occasion or night out.

Tousled 
There is no waking up on the wrong side of the bed if you’re sporting a pixie haircut. That gentle, tousled texture that long-haired girls work so hard to get comes effortlessly to you. To help give it a little more shape and volume, feel free to add the Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Finishing Paste for its ability to add 24-hour definition and hold.

Bangs and Bobby Pins 
Make your fringe the star of your hair look by clipping back the sides of your hair with silver barrettes. It keeps the hair out of your face while offering a sweet and easy style.

Faux Braids 
If your hair isn’t long enough for a full on braid, there’s nothing wrong with faking it ’til you make it. Because you can’t keep the braid together with a hair tie, though, be sure to invest in a super strong hairspray like the L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Strong Hold Hairspray.

Slicked Back
We understand that even if you have a pixie haircut, there are some days where you just need your hair out of your face. Considering a ponytail might not be an option for you, go for another chic alternative like slicking your hair all the way back. It’s a cool and sculpted look that brings more attention to your bomb makeup look.

Headband 
On the days when you don’t want to get out of bed let alone do an elaborate style, go with a colorful headband or scarf. It gives us a boho chic kind of vibe while still looking put together and very stylish.
