Everyone knows that pixie short hair requires some effort to upkeep – from regular salon appointments to more frequent washes. However, it also allows creating a unique shape and setting the right accents on your best features. One way to achieve that is by cutting hair into light and wispy feathered layers. Keep scrolling to see the 20 best modern feathered pixie haircut ideas.

1. Fiery Feathered Pixie Hairstyle

We love this heavily textured pixie that mimics outgrown haircut effect. If you are looking for a hairstyle that would suit thick hair without looking too bulky and heavy, this layered and feathered cut is the right answer.

2. ‘90s Inspired Layered Pixie Cut

A classic ‘90s pixie features feathered layers, an elongated back, and temples with a textured fringe. Whether you are a sucker for the unique aesthetics of that period or maybe just looking to add some body to your fine hair, this edgy haircut is worth a try.

3. Disconnected Pixie with Long Feathered Bangs

Short and tight on the sides and long and feathered on the top, this stunning pixie cut can give you an instant lifting effect. Those textured bangs elevate the cheekbones and bring an accent to your eyes.

4. Blonde Feathered Pixie with an Undercut

This blonde side swept pixie is cute and edgy at the same time. Soft, airy texture and a contrasting shortly shaved undercut make a bold, striking contrast.

5. Spiky Pixie Cut with Skin Tight Sides

While it’s extremely important to get your hair cut the right way, a big part of the look depends on styling. Use some texturizing powder and dry wax to achieve this kind of look.

6. Disconnected Mullet Hairstyle

Transitioning from a short haircut to a longer style can be time consuming and frustrating. The ‘70s inspired mullet cut is a lifesaver for that interim period.

7. Feathered Pixie Crop with Curtain Bangs

A short and wispy top and clean short sides make a super combo for an edgy look. Use some hair pomade to get that tousled texture.

8. Soft and Feathery Pixie Cut

Short hair can be extremely feminine, like this soft razored crop. Short textured fringe and long wispy temples do a great job of accentuating the features of the one who is wearing the style.

9. Punk Style Pixie Cut

To get this messy, undone look, use plenty of mousse and a round brush. Although if you are in a rush, just turn your head upside down and blast dry your hair to get maximum volume with minimal effort.

10. Feathered Pixie Hairstyle in a Bold Hue

We can’t get over this stunning mustard color pixie. Perfect for warmer skin tones, it is suitable for any hair type and texture.

11. Deep Blue Pixie Haircut for Straight Hair

Poker straight hair is known to be difficult to style but not when it comes to short hairstyles. The secret is in taking the excessive weight away by cutting shorter layers and making the hairstyle lightweight and feathery.

12. Textured Pixie Bob with a Sweeping Fringe

If you are wondering how to describe this look to your hairdresser, try to ask for a combination of a bob haircut and a pixie. The short, stacked back and soft razored front make a classy and modern look.

13. Semi Mohawk Haircut

The best part about short haircuts is their versatility. Every hairstyle can be tailored to suit your image, lifestyle and mood and bring out your best features. This tapered pixie is a great cut for a daring and confident woman.

14. Rich Red Spiky Pixie Haircut

The right haircut can totally change your face and give you a massive boost of confidence. Use plenty of volumizing spray and texturizing paste to get this salon like finish.

15. Feathered Curls on a Pixie

Asymmetrical pixies look seductive and sensual. Allow a bit more length to show off your curls and keep the sides short and neat. Finish with some gel or curl enhancing serum.

16. Choppy Pixie with an Undercut

Pixie crops are great to demonstrate vivid colors, like this bright emerald green feathered pixie hairstyle. Ask your hairdresser to shave the sides and finish the top with some razoring for maximum contrast and texture.

17. Androgynous Pixie Cut

Embrace the tom boy style with this effortless choppy cut. Use plenty of matte styling paste to create that undone, picey finish.

18. Feathered Pixie Bob Style

Soft, feminine, and super cute, a pixie bob with bangs is a superb haircut for those looking for a trendy but simple look. Use a big barrel brush for your bangs and rough dry the rest of the hair to make sure it doesn’t look too ‘done’.

19. Chic and Tousled Disconnected Pixie Cut

The combination of long layered fringe and short disconnected sides is a new classic that suits most hair types and face shapes. Bright blonde highlights and a deep red base add dimension and texture to this look.

20. Long Asymmetrical Pixie

A long, feathered fringe is one of the best ways to bring the accent to your cheekbones and jawline. Apply some volumizing mousse on wet hair and lift the root area with a vent brush to get plenty of volume at the crown.
