The pixie cut has been one of the most popular hairstyles for decades. Here you can find out who it looks best and what it says.
Pixie-Cut: 3 hairstylists on the advantages and secrets of the short hairstyle.
Dua Lipa with a platinum blonde pixie cut on the cover of the February issue of British VOGUE has put the short hairstyle back on the fashion radar. He looked just as good on Judi Dench in the past as he did Twiggy in the 50s, and when it comes to long-lasting hairstyles, the pixie cut is right at the fore. Here three hairstylists reveal why it is a classic.
“The 'pixie crop' has always been an iconic style, first popularized by Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy. There is not really a one size fits all, which makes it a very versatile cut that can be worn both casually and formally You have to have a certain bone structure to wear it because, as the name suggests, it fits angular face shapes with pixie-like features. However, there are many variations of this cut so you just need to find one that fits This can be a more asymmetrical pixie with longer bangs that is a little messy and undone, or a super short, pared-back style that in my opinion looks fantastic on afro hair and requires minimal maintenance.
I still love Emma Watson's pixie - I cut it for her when she decided to say goodbye to her long locks. For me, she has the perfect face shape to wear in such a style and I remember it was a wow moment back then as it was a pretty unexpected change. I also loved Zoë Kravitz's hairstyle when she was wearing her almost punk version of a pixie cut - it had so much texture and shape, and I loved it when she bleached it. "
"The pixie cut is a classic that will always have a place in my archive. It is not a passing trend because when you see it, it neither transports you back in time nor does it make you nostalgic. Maybe that's the fact that it is such a bold and bold look that requires a certain amount of confidence on the part of the wearer to wear it. Those who can wear it well include Mia Farrow, Michelle Williams, Rihanna, Halle Berry, Helen Mirren, and of course Audrey Hepburn. How does it work? Well, one thing that keeps people from going for a short hairstyle is that it can feel really extreme, with a lot of hard edges. So that it's easier to wear, keep it I like to add the classic round shape that encloses the head and make sure to keep the edges really soft. "
"I love the pixie cut. It makes an elegant power statement and shows self-confidence and inner strength. The good thing is that this style can be adapted to many different face shapes and can really bring out the best characteristics of the wearer. Mine all-time favorite pixie cuts are Natalie Portman, Mia Farrow, and Zoë Kravitz's, but there are so many to take inspiration from, the best in my opinion are the ones that are softer around the edges - around the hairline, My top tip would always be to be brave - just get started, because halfway through it's never that good.
