17. Asymmetrical Pixie with Side-swept Bangs – A cute pixie cut with one side slightly longer, this piece-y look still manages to be sleek.
18. Short Textured Pixie – It’s a really short cut, but long enough to texturize, giving it a tousled, carefree appearance. Ginnifer Goodwin has the right idea – this cut frames her face perfectly, balancing those apple cheeks and making her look thin and chic.

23. Girly Faux Hawk – Some girly faux hawks are cut nearly shaved on the sides (more like a true mohawk), but here is Pink’s version – a more feminine styling with lots of texture. The right kind of pixie cut could be worn this way or more traditionally.
24. Razor Cut – A super short pixie gets tons of personality with a razor cut, that adds spikiness and texture.
25. Long On Top Razor – This super short razor cut has longer hair on top, making it perfect for lots of different variations – tousled and messy, faux hawk, sleek and smooth, you name it.
