Hairstyle for pixie haircut

We have seen an increase in the haircuts and hairstyles that are based loosely on the short styles which are created with the use of a pixie haircut. Pixie haircuts can be recognized by the short wisps that are created through the hairstyle, similar to a hair style that can be seen on the likes of a fairy, hence the name.
A pixie haircut is s very short hairstyle. The short pixie cut refers to a short woman’s hairstyle generally short on the back and sides of the head and slightly longer on the top. Women began exploring shorter hairstyles in the 1920s and was widely popular by rebelling women known as flappers.

Pixie haircuts work best on women with thin straight hair. Fine features, such as high cheek bones and large eyes, are accentuated with this hairstyle. Depending on the hairstyle, pixies range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches long in others.
Pixie hairstyles are very easy to care for and can be worn casually, or dressed up for special occasions.
In the past year the pixie haircut has been brought back into the spotlight, being worn by world famous stars and models such as Alyssa Milano, Keira Knightley, Rihanna, Katie Holmes, Agyness Deyn, Victoria Beckham and others.
