A short layered women's hairstyle with a shaggy fringe.
A 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.
It has since been a rollercoaster trend and has been reappearing and disappearing frequently throughout the years. In the past year the pixie cut 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, Elisha Cuthbert, Victoria Beckham, Ashley Greene, Lauren Holly and others.
Pixie cuts 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 style, pixies range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches long in others. Pixies are very easy to care for and can be worn casually, or dressed up for special occasions.
