#1: Blonde Bombshell Layered Pixie Cut

This blonde pixie is soft, elegant ang girly, as bombshell baby blonde and the soft pixie shape make a great combo. This haircut is a nice step into the world of layered pixie cuts, because the softness of the shape is complimentary to many face shapes.

#2: Layered Pixie with Edgy Vibes

This look screams cool girl. What’s nice about this pixie cut is that it has two levels, and the short areas are kept neat and sharp. The top it a little longer and disconnected from the shorter length, which gives a cool understated hidden edge to the haircut. It’s worn here with a little texture without being too spiky.

This short tomboyish layered pixie cut goes great on those of you with small facial features. Also, it’s really showing off the eyes and cheekbones. The cute bangs and the natural movement in the hair makes it a super easy to style – in this case, less is more.

#4: Long Layered Pixie Cut

This look is styled very nicely! It falls forward onto the face and the edges are soft, framing the forehead and the eyes area beautifully. The overall hairstyle has a bit of length through the layers, giving the wearer bouncy volume in the hair. Blow dry and finish off with a gentle hair spray, and you are good for the day.

#5: Clipped Blonde Pixie Hair

The shaved sides give this ultimate cool girl blonde pixie a sharp, on point look. We love that the blonde tone remains warm and under-toned with a little darker root coming through. The shadowy effect adds another element to the haircut and it’s simply too cool.

#6: No Fuss Cowlick Pixie Cut

This look is simple and effective. The sides are buzzed super short and taken quite high. The length on the top is floppy around the fringe area because of a strong growth pattern in hair, and there’s more texture in the back. A great example of how to embrace your cowlick while going short.

#7: Layered Curly Pixie Cut

This look is a great way of getting rid of unruly thick curls and simplifying your hair styling regimen while still keeping some length on top. Curly hair tends to be dense, so a layered pixie haircut is the perfect solution! Keep the curls longer on top to help them coil and give you that trendy curly bangs.

#8: Layered Waves and Feathered Edges

This layered pixie haircut is a great way of softening the harshness of hard lines throughout the hair. We love the feathery effect on the neck line, and the natural texture through this look is simply beautiful. Working with natural texture is a winning way to create something stylish.

Combining the look with a dark hair color gives a striking alternative feel to the pixie hair. The layers worked into the cut look very cool.

#11: Wispy Layers in Pixie Short Hair

Check out the movement in this haircut! This layered pixie look has dreamy whimsical vibes. The hair is almost floaty, giving it length and movement. This look is great on fine hair types but can also be created by taking weight out of thicker locks.

#12: Layered Pixie with Mod Vibes

Taking you back to the nostalgic 60s, this pixie look has it all: curtain bangs, length in front of the ears and a little length on the neck too. This look works very well with hair that has a wave or natural kink. We love the idea of mixing the old into the new and having a layered pixie that is modern and vintage at the same time.

#13: Undercut Pixie with Layers

You can see that this girl has super thick hair, which is probably why she chose an undercut pixie, which also gives her hair a strong shape. Taking the underneath hair off is a great way of getting rid of thick hair that is hard to style and adds a sassy shape around the head.

#14: Bold Color Layered Pixie

The styling of this pixie is almost mohawkish, giving it a punky rock element, while the green color gives some mermaid vibes. We like the way the model has a peek-a-boo color through the longer bangs, and we are all for people expressing their creativity through a hairstyle.
