There's no better time than the new year to try a short pixie haircut, especially if you've been considering it for a while but never actually made that pivotal salon appointment. For those of you in need of motivation or inspiration, you'll find nine different pixies in the gallery above which all prove how versatile this cute crop can be!

Less is more

Just because pixies are short, doesn't mean there aren't plenty of different styling options. In fact, if you get a cut with long or longish bangs, you can create all kinds of different looks from pomps to piecey side-sweeps.

Styling tips

To make a perfect mess of your chosen pixie, scrunch Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum throughout. Start small and add more as needed, then ruffle with your hands to add texture. Twist individual pieces and break them up again to create a tousled finish, before shaping as desired.

Slicked back
Smooth some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty back through your hair, adding more as needed. You can part it on one side for a polished tomboy look, or you can just push it all back off of your face.

For a smooth, frizz-free look, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream before drying. Then, once your locks are dry, mist them with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and keep flyaways at bay.

What do you think? Are you feeling brave enough to go for a pixie cut?
