We just can't get enough of this street style pixie cut with side-swept bangs. It's classic, but not overdone thanks to the airy texture. If you're someone who enjoys wearing a lot of statement jewellery - earrings and necklaces in particular - or you just want a radical new cut that is super chic, you could certainly do worse as sources of inspiration go!

Alternative options such as a half hawk or faux half hawk simply don't have the same impact that this cut brings.

The reason this look works so well, however, has to be those highlights. Too defined to be classed as ombre, but evenly spaced enough to avoid any 90's throwback comparisons.

How to style

If you have a similar cut or are planning to get one soon, you'll need to know how to style your bangs!

Starting with damp locks, apply a smoothing cream like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream throughout, then rough dry your hair until it's only slightly damp. Next, use your hands or a comb to sweep your bangs to one side as you continue drying. Keep going until the hair is totally dry and your bangs more or less stay in place by themselves.

When you're done, finish with plenty of hairspray to lock in your style and lock out any unwanted flyaways!

What do you think? Are you brave enough to try a look like this?
