Getting a short haircut is a big deal because, as Coco Chanel once said, "A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life," something which is especially true of a pixie crop. Aside from the game changing powers of such a short hairstyle, your hair's natural texture, cowlicks, and how much styling time you want to devote to your hair are all things to think about.

A sculpted, side parted pixie is a great look to consider. Like a side-swept approach, you can keep some extra length on top which will give you more styling options. This can be really handy if your hair has a natural wave or curls.

How to style it

1/ Minimalist

For a smooth, polished look, you'll need a little product to hold the hair just where you want it. Starting with damp hair, work a small amount of L'Oréal Pairs Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty through all of your hair, then part it on your favorite side. Comb your hair through for a straight, slick finish.

2/ Textured

To make the most of you hair's natural texture, or to add texture to straight hair, try Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum instead. Part your hair after you apply it, then tousle and muss your style with your fingertips to create a more casual look.

What do you think? Would you dare to try a short pixie cut like this one?
