Cutting your hair short is very fashionable, but sometimes you want to add some length. A long pixie will give you a chance to try out this amazing combination.
While still shorter than most hairstyles, the long pixie extends a bit longer, typically around the ears or even reaching down to the neck.
Though it requires more upkeep than a very short pixie cut (due to its length), a long pixie cut is still generally easier to maintain than longer hairstyles and there are more options for styling your hair.
So, if you find it difficult to style your short hair, a long pixie cut can be your way out. Scroll this article to check out different long-pixie hairstyles that suit your taste.
Best Long Pixie Cuts for Women
A long pixie haircut offers a balance between the very short style of a pixie and the slightly longer style of a bob. Short bobs also offer this balance but short bobs usually require more care than pixies, so the latter is a more worry-free choice.
You can get a long pixie haircut by keeping long bangs or a fringe with a pixie. Here are some ideas for long pixie hairstyles:
1. Asymmetrical with Layers
What do you get when you combine an asymmetrical long pixie cut with short layers? The perfect amount of body and shape! If your hair’s texture is mostly straight and you have a smaller face, this hairstyle will look great.
2. Choppy Long Pixie
Bluntly cut bangs are the way to go if your hair goals are to draw attention to your eyes. To get this cute pixie, which is chin-length, ask your stylist for short choppy layers. A summery light blonde is just the shade to brighten up your face as well.
3. Long Pixie with Quiff
The bigger the hair, the bigger the attitude! Give a long pixie some character with a poofy quiff right at the front of your head. Tease the rest of the hair for texture and top it all off with bold makeup.
There are several layers to this long pixie, which makes it ideal for women with thin hair. The layers combined with a mix of straightened and wavy sections of hair work together to make a soft heavy side bang the star of the style.
If you have an oval face shape, a stylish pixie cut will maintain a balanced face dimension while making you look amazing. Go bold with a dark shade that will draw attention to your curly hair and flatter light skin.
Be both feminine and edgy by rocking a long pixie with a medium or low fade. Finger comb the long side of your hair mostly flat or use a clip to pin it back. Of course, this cut wouldn’t be complete without beautiful blonde highlights.
