Close cropped pixie or an easy side part - Which pixie hairstyle do you choose?

Cute, sexy, feminine and utterly adorable – a pixie is many things, but never boring! No matter how short you cut your pixie, there's always more than just a single way to style it. Add a subtle texture, go wild with a windswept effect or slick your strands to perfection – there are plenty of styles to pull off with your androgynous haircut!

The close-cropped look and the easy side part are two of the most trending pixie hairstyles this season. Both have their individual character and charm; each lends a different appeal to one's personality. If you are planning to get an on trend pixie haircut and can't choose between the two, let us help you make the right decision!

Close-Cropped Pixie – For Those Who Like to Keep it Sharp and Sexy

A close-crop is as real as a pixie can get. (Remember Charlize Theron's pixie cut in Mad Max: Fury Road?) No frills, no fringe – just a sharp and sexy short hairstyle that is easy to manage and sport anywhere.

A close-cropped pixie looks best on long and oval face shapes. Since it does not require you to have a lot of volume on the top of your head, it beautifully balances out the dimensions of your face without making it look too elongated.

If you choose to go for a close-cropped pixie, you can use a deconstructing gum or putty to style individual hair-pieces and add texture to you mane, without cutting out on volume.

Easy Side Parted Pixie – For Those Who Like to Look Effortlessly Pretty

A pixie looks the loveliest when worn with an easy side part. It has an ultra-feminine vibe about it and suits every woman. It is also a safer option to try if you've never sported an androgynous hairstyle before.

If you have a round or a square face shape, we recommend that you go for a slightly longer pixie and wear it with an easy side part. The long wisps of hair sweeping down your forehead together with the angular side pieces will take the roundness off your face and make it look narrower.

Flat-iron and set your face-framing hair sections to create a delicate, controlled, office-appropriate hairstyle or work in a tiny amount of deconstructing gum through your mane and ruffle individual hair pieces to create a party-worthy look.

So, which pixie hairstyle would you choose? Let us know by casting your vote above!
