Short pixie haircuts always make for a super eye-catching look, not least because they're so darn cool. The thing is, there are a couple of different textures you can go for with a hairstyle like this... or rather different amounts of texture to play with. From ultra-messy to mirror-esque levels of sleekness, the pixie is actually pretty versatile, despite what its length (or lack thereof) may suggest.

In a world where hair styling needs to be as time-efficient as possible to fit into our busy schedules (or missed alarms in the morning), deciding what to do with your pixie comes down to two basic looks: unkempt or totally controlled. Above, you can vote for your favorite style!

All yours...

Just like choosing a haircut in the first place, your decision should be based mainly on your own personal style. Your hair should fit perfectly with the rest of your look, helping to tie everything together.

For anyone out there with generally quite edgy taste, a more heavily textured hairstyle can work really well. As long as you have the attitude for it, you can rock it. Apply a strong hold product such as Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty to get a seriously unkempt look.

For those of you who prefer to keep things relatively simple, or who need to for work at least, a more low-key piecey style might work better. There's still plenty of room to inject some personality into this kind of hairstyle while keeping your locks totally under control. Work a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through your hair and then twist and tousle until you get a lightweight piecey texture. Guide and shape the hair with your fingers for a controlled finish.
