Deciding whether or not to go for a short haircut can be hard. While there are a few ways to help you fake a cute crop in order to gauge how you feel about it, there's no way to know for sure until you make the cut. Although a pixie may seem especially intimidating, you might just be surprised by how versatile the style can be.

One haircut, many options

This windswept pixie is full of texture and has a soft silhouette that would look good on anybody brave enough to rock it. It's also the kind of style that can be swept back or to the side when you want to try something different, and it looks gorgeous with bangs. Another huge pro is that short hair in general requires less of everything, so you'll end up saving money, too!

A beautiful mess

To get the windswept texture just right, warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands then work it thoroughly into your hair. Scrunch and shape the hair, then sweep it slightly to one side. Allow a few pieces to fall over your forehead, and twist a few small sections to create a tousled finish.

To add more volume, scrunch the product in, then massage the roots with your fingertips. This will lift the hair and make it appear fuller.
