We're always searching for interesting short hairstyle ideas, and this pixie / undercut combo fits the bill perfectly! The undercut part of this hairstyle is so subtle that you barely notice it at first glance. It's carefully tucked away under the longer hair at the side which keeps it as a detail rather than the focal point of the whole look.

The big question is, would you try a short cut like this?

Why you should try this hairstyle

If you would like to try an undercut but aren't sure how bold you want to be with it, this could be a great stepping stone. You can go for a small patch behind the ears and take it right back across the nape of your neck, or just test the water with a small undercut on the side.

If you decide you love it, it'll be really easy to take the look further. If you realize an undercut isn't for you, it won't take too long to grow out and catch up with the rest of your pixie.

1/ Styling tips

Add texture to the longer parts of this hairstyle by applying a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum. Twist and ruffle individual pieces of hair, then sweep it all into place.

For a slick look, use Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Clean Gel to sweep your hair back or to the side.

What do you think? Could you see yourself with a short cut like this?
