Which pixie haircut gets your vote?

The pixie haircut is one of the most enduring short hairstyles of all time. There are many different ways to wear it, including the ultra-short look and retro inspired cut with bangs featured above. The question is, which style would you go for?

Short, ruffled pixie

A super short pixie style is guaranteed to make a huge beauty statement, so it's definitely not for the fainthearted. That being said, Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams and Sharon Stone have all done much to make this hairstyle famous for all the right reasons in recent years, so you would be in good company should you decide to try the look on your own hair.

Styling tip - Aside from regular trims, this style is super low maintenance. All you need is a tiny amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to ruffle and shape your locks.

Pretty vintage pixie

With a retro 1960s vibe, this longer pixie cut with a fringe is a more forgiving way to wear the look. The bangs can be swept to one side or parted in the middle, and there is considerably more length to play around with. This style also creates a great excuse for experimenting with intense retro eye makeup!

Styling tip - For a shiny, frizz-free look, mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray all over.

What's the verdict? Which pixie haircut gets your vote?
