Popular Celebrity Pixie Haircuts
Here is a quick look at some of the most popular celebrities hero-ing the pixie cut.
Actresses with Pixie Haircuts
1. Anne Hathaway
When Anne Hathaway debuted her brunette pixie haircut, it was a shock to many of us, but we quickly realized she could effortlessly pull it off. She wore her chic pixie straightened with a minimal side part to create a soft side bang.
2. Audrey Tautou
If you have curly hair, you may want to copy actress Audrey Tautou’s pixie. It’s ideal for women with thin to medium-thick hair, since you’ll only have to scrunch in a little curl cream or mousse to enhance that natural texture for a beautiful look.
3. Charlize Theron
Charlize Theron is the epitome of class. This actress with blonde hair can rock any hairstyle, including a bluntly-cut pixie. If you want to give your haircut a little edge, have your hairstylist cut it straight across at the front and then add a fade to the back. A few blonde highlights on dark hair will also brighten up your face.
4. Ginnifer Goodwin
Ginnifer Goodwin is another actress who went from long locks to short in a flash. The mix of short spikes and straightened side-combed bangs make her dark-colored pixie with textures a beautiful blend of feminine edge. It may take a bit of time to straighten your own, but the result will be worth it!
5. Jennifer Lawrence
Actress Jennifer Lawrence made sure no one would see her as Katniss Everdeen again once she chopped off her long locks and went to a long pixie. The top features short layers that add beautiful texture and the warm shade of blonde is perfect for light skin tones.
6. Joey King
If you have a small round face and relatively thin hair, copy Joey King’s pixie cut. An off-center part gives the illusion of fuller hair, especially when you enhance your natural texture with a little product.
7. Judi Dench
If you’re an older woman with short hair, you don’t need to stick with plain short hairstyles. Judi Dench’s classy but choppy pixie is a youthful blonde and can be styled both softly – brushed neatly to one side – or with an edge – by spiking hair slightly with your fingers.
8. Kristen Stewart
Everyone loves Hollywood’s bad girl, actress Kristen Stewart. She serves up moody hairstyles all the time, including her fierce long pixie with blonde highlights. While sometimes she wears it messily styled, the look above is finger-combed back away from the face.
9. Michelle Williams
Looking for a soft long pixie cut to suit your face? Look to Michelle Williams for style inspiration. Her blonde locks are combed smoothly, mostly to one side and she pairs a cute bandana with it for color contrast.
10. Scarlett Johansson
Actress Scarlet Johansson is one lady who could never look bad no matter how short her hair is. She rocks a mid fade with slicked-back locks. If you have a heart/oval-shaped face, you’ll pull off this pixie style perfectly.
Celebrity Singer’s Pixie Haircuts
With a beautiful voice comes a beautiful hairstyle. These celebrity singers are also ones to note for gorgeous pixie cuts.
11. Annie Lennox
Older ladies, don’t brush off singer Annie Lennox and her super short pixie! Women with oval-shaped faces will look gorgeous, rocking a fiery red pixie. If a bright shade isn’t your style, something darker will also flatter light skin tones.
12. Demi Lovato
Round-faced women, you can relax knowing the beautiful Demi Lovato has successfully flaunted a pixie cut. Wear yours straight, with a little product scrunched in, or pinned in sleek, smooth waves like seen above.
It seems there’s nothing singer Halsey can’t take on, including bold hairstyles. She is well known for her creative looks, like the pixie, which she styled here with pink ombre hair color. To get a fuller look on thin hair pixie, go with layers and brush them out.
14. Janelle Monae
A voice as smooth as Janelle Monae’s would of course belong to a woman rocking a hairstyle just as sleek! Her black hair is parted slightly off-center and smoothed neatly down, with one single lock of hair coiling over the forehead.
15. Katy Perry
Katy Perry has flaunted many hairstyles over her singing career. A straight pixie with different layers is very flattering to her face shape, and the platinum color really suits her light skin tone.
16. Miley Cyrus
To put a boyish twist on your pixie cut, we like Miley Cyrus’ way of styling. She pushes up the front to give it a little flip, but shapes the rest into a messy faux hawk. You’ll need several inches of hair for this spiky pixie style, and definitely be willing to try light hair colors.
Looking for a celebrity who rocks short hair and is well known for her boldness? Pink makes no apologies and her purple pixie cut clearly communicates that. Blow yours out into an off-center part for a neat look, or work in product for texture. Don’t forget the bold statement color.
18. Pixie Geldof
Make your pixie cut simple but sweet by copying celebrity singer Pixie Geldof. The back is where the longest hair length is, while the front is kept short. When you want it out of your face, just clip it back with some cute barrettes!
Extra-long bangs are great for women with long faces or large foreheads. Rihanna styles her layered pixie haircut by straightening the hair and combing the angled bangs to one side for softness. They conveniently also cover most of her forehead.
20. Teyana Taylor
Do you prefer a really short hairstyle? Singer Teyana Taylor is very edgy in her low-maintenance cropped pixie cut. To get the look, ask your stylist to trim your hair, so you only have about an inch of hair all around. Run a comb through, and you’re done!
Renowned Celebrity Models with Pixie Cut
If you can’t take a style hint from a model, who can you take it from? These gorgeous models show us how a pixie cut should be styled.
21. Agyness Deyn
If you’re looking for an androgynous style of messy pixie, look no further than model Agyness Deyn. It’s great for those who prefer a longer pixie. Wear it straight and combed out in different directions, topping it off with a fashionable hat.
22. Bella Hadid
If moody and mysterious are in your hair goals, you’ll love Bella Hadid’s black edgy pixie cut. It’s mostly one length all over, but the ends are unevenly cut, giving the style a punk personality.
23. Maria Borges
We love a woman of color who isn’t afraid to embrace her natural hair. Model Maria Borges bares it all in a super short natural afro pixie cut that suits her round face. Go with bold makeup to accentuate your eyes.
24. Ruby Rose
Ruby Rose is no doubt the girl crush of many women, and it’s easy to see why! Her asymmetrical pixie is always styled differently, but the one above features a heavy part for volume and soft waves that contrast with the one slicked backside.
25. Tyra Banks
Even model Tyra Banks rocked a pixie cut with bangs at one point. She has a long face, which looks best with a pixie that has a long front. We recommend going short in the back, and keeping the front half long enough to cover your forehead, whether it’s straight or wavy.
Famous Celebrities with Pixie Cut on Instagram
If you didn’t post it to Instagram, did it really happen? These celebrities shared their stylish pixie cuts with the world on their IGs.
26. Maricar Reyes-Poon
A soft pastel color like a light pink with blonde is a favorite of ours when it comes to hair colors. Maricar Reyes-Poon wore her thick pixie combed back with piecey texture, and teased for both volume and shape.
27. Micah Gianneli
Here’s a female celebrity whose blonde pixie cut screamed sex appeal. The combination of her wavy golden blonde locks against her light skin tone was stunning. The key is combing out curls for the beachy waves, then brushing it all forward.
28. Sarah B.
When you’re heading out on a date or to another fancy occasion, style up your pixie cut like celebrity Sarah B. A jeweled headband is just the right amount of bling for a short pixie.
29. Stella Cini
Glamorous is the only word that comes to mind when you see Stella Cini’s perfectly styled wavy pixie. Use bobby pins and lots of hairsprays to secure your style. You can even line the shape with a few face gems for sparkle.
30. Vicky Logan
Last on our list of celebrity pixie cuts is Vicky Logan. This natural-haired beauty styled her short haircut by scrunching in curl cream to enhance the natural texture. Sides are slightly shorter, nicely emphasizing her face shape.
If you were ever doubtful about being able to pull off celebrity pixie cuts, we hope the above styles have proven you wrong! There’s no wrong way to style this popular haircut, from short and curly pixie cuts for natural hair types to long and straight pixies. The key is putting your own style touch on it, like hair color!
