It was a bold move for Audrey Hepburn to sport a pixie haircut in the 1950’s when the era’s ideal woman wore long hair modestly pulled back, heels, and skirts. The more defiant 60’s showcased more of this bold haircut with such stars as Mia Farrow and Twiggy. Long-haired Goldie Hawn even sported a pixie in the 60’s.
The haircut is still popular today as it is flattering to many face shapes, hair types, and is easy to maintain. The haircut is characterized by super short sides with slightly longer top layers. The length of the cut may seem to limit styling options to one, but the fact is, the style can be worn in a variety of ways. Here are just a few ideas of how your pixie cut can be worn.
