For many women, the first thing we consider when we're ready for a new look is our hair. Having a cool, new hairstyle that makes us feel great is a great way to boost our confidence and freshen our look. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of misinformation out there about styles of haircuts. If you’ve ever debated getting a pixie, you might have read that they only suit certain face shapes. This just isn't true — anyone can rock a pixie. Your face shape can help you narrow down the best style for you, but in the end, choose what you like!


1. What is a Pixie Cut?

The pixie cut encompasses a range of haircuts that can go as short as you can get before a "buzzcut." The style has been popularlized in media and Hollywood for years, from Jean Seberg in the 50s to Cara Delevingne in the 2010s. The pixie is also versatile, working as a catch-all term for choppy, cropped, layered hair that stops above the jaw. The pixie haircut is a true classic, and it can feel great — not to mention lighter — to take that plunge. These styles can also be incredibly low-maintenance.
