Pixie cuts are timeless and always in demand, all year round. As girls all over the world ditch their long tresses in favor of sweet, short and sassy coifs, the asymmetrical pixie cut is an ever popular choice.
Ideas for Asymmetrical Pixie Cuts
Pixies with asymmetry can look very different. The most popular choice is the long bangs swept to one side and a temple undercut on the other. You can vary the length of your pixie and play with textures – straight/choppy and wavy/choppy will give two different looks. Incorporate color: whether it’s a solid pastel hue or a two-tone hair color solution with natural-looking shades involved, you’ll add interest points to your style. So, why don’t we see the pictures?
#1: Long Asymmetrical Pixie
Whether your hair is curly or straight, a pixie cut doesn’t have to be super short. Opt for a long section, either on one side or down the back. This edgy yet still girly look is perfect for those who want short hair but aren’t ready to fully commit to a standard, one-option style.
#2: Choppy, Spiky Pixie
For round-faced gals, a spiky or choppy cut is a good idea of a short haircut. This adorable purple style is totally unbalanced in a way that works for all hair types, and if you feel daring enough to add in a vibrant color, you can get even more mileage out of this creative ‘do.
#3: Wavy Pixie Cut
Both symmetrical and asymmetrical pixies are often associated with straight hair, but it doesn’t always have to be that way! Wavy-haired ladies look just as lovely with a short cut, as is exemplified in the photo below. Go for a cropped cut that is still long enough on top to allow your natural waves to show off.
#4: Super Short Pixie Cut
When you want truly low maintenance hair, a pixie cut is the way to go. With shorn sides and a deep side part, this is the ultimate in the cuts that don’t require anything in the way of daily attention. This is an ideal cut for warm weather, or any time you don’t want to deal with hair drama!
#5: Asymmetrical Pixie with Bangs
Bangs can add a lot to a pixie cut, especially if you go for an asymmetrical style. From hiding large foreheads to brightening the eyes, bangs can really add some magic to an otherwise mundane hairstyle.
#6: Short Cut with Long Bangs
Sweet and sassy, long bangs can really define a hairstyle. This cut is ideal for thick-haired girls who can pull off some extra fullness in the back with long bangs sweeping down one side of the face. Super cute for summer or whenever you feel like trying something new, this cut is perfect for those who are weary from long hair demands.
#7: Asymmetrical Pixie Cut for Oval Faces
Short and sassy, this pixie cut brings height and dimension. It will work on a variety of hair types, but looks best when done on medium to thick hair. If you want an extra pop of drama, try contrasting colors like platinum blonde over dark brown. This layered style is sure to please anyone with an itch for something new and different.
#8: Short Styles for Brunettes
Brunettes look beautiful with short hair, and pixie cuts can flatter a variety of facial types. If you’re looking for a square-face-flattering style, this cut is ideal.
#9: Curly Blonde Style
This asymmetrical pixie cut style is adorable with its wild curls – and it’s very easy to replicate. Shorter sides keep things straight, while longer front waves are allowed to flow free. If you weren’t born with naturally curly hair, a large barrel iron will do the trick.
#10: African American Curly Cuts
Short, cropped hair looks gorgeous on African Americans who want something sleek and simple. Perfectly wavy and lovely, the deep side part brings volume and dimension to this very low maintenance look.
#11: Red Asymmetrical Pixie Cut
Fire engine red hair isn’t for everyone, but if you’re feeling bold and want to try something new and fun, give it a go! Wash out dyes are available, as are permanent hues. When your hair is cut into an asymmetrical cut, a bold, vibrant color frames the face rather than taking on a life of its own, as is frequently the case with overpowering long hair.
#12: Shaggy Layered Cut
Shaggy haircuts can bring out the eyes, minimize the forehead and seem to change a face’s shape. If you’ve always wanted a pixie cut but have been concerned about it looking too strict, go for a shaggy version. The bright side? If you don’t like the way it looks, you can always transform into a traditional pixie – rather than the other way around when once it’s gone, it’s gone.
#13: Short Hair with Highlights
Pixie cuts are already so lovely on their own, the only thing that can really make them better is a creative color. Incorporate some highlights into your next layered cut, lightening up the face, framing long strands, as well as working some blonde hue throughout.
#14: Ash Blonde Pixie
Step away from natural hues and go with something totally artificial, but lovely. Go grey in your 20s, bright blue in your 50s….or anything in between. With cropped sides and longer, side swept locks atop, this style flatters an oval face and really brings out facial features.
#15: Extreme Tapered Cut
Creatively shaving the sides of your head provides lift and uniqueness to a pixie cut. Once the sides are closely clipped and upgraded with shaven lines, work a few different hues into the remaining strands, further complementing the head design. While not for everyone, this fun modern punk style is finished with some all-day hold hair gel and a generous dose of self-confidence.
#16: Simple Brunette Pixie
If you are looking for a haircut ideal for thin hair, a graduated pixie cut with asymmetrical angles may work best for you. When it comes to styles for fine hair, hairdressers like to add in body by “stacking” the cut. This boosts volume and produces the best end result.
#17: Layered Pixie Cut for Thin Hair
Women with hair on the finer side can have just as much success with an asymmetrical pixie haircut, as thick-haired girls. In fact, having thin hair is actually beneficial in this case, as strands are apt to lay more softly and stay in place.
#18: Sleek Cut for Thick Hair
Dark, sultry and modern – that’s what you’ll get with this fun pixie cut that’s perfect for thick hair. Whether your locks are naturally a deep hue or you decide to color them, this dramatically fun style will really turn heads.
#19: Pixie Cut for Heart Shaped Faces
Heart shaped faces are the sweetest around, so why not to accentuate such a cute face with a flattering hair cut? Pixie cuts with asymmetrical bangs are a great choice for women who want an easy style that still brings out their best facial features.
#20: Edgy Pixie Cut
Messy or neat, colored or natural – this edgy pixie cut flatters round faces. Draw attention to your eyes and smile with this cropped, creative style that relies on a generous amount of hair gel and personality.
Asymmetrical pixie cuts are so much fun to wear and style in different ways. If you’re searching a new look this year, why not to ditch your long hair and try something short and modern? You will feel beautiful and free from the daily hair care grind.
