Short hair, don’t care! While many people are turning to hair extensions to get instantly long locks, others are committing to short, chopped ‘dos. One short hairstyle we’re constantly seeing pop up on our social media feeds? A pixie cut! Pixie cuts are not only one of the biggest short hairstyle trends at the moment, but there are also so many ways to style and personalize this low maintenance cut. Keep reading for tutorials on five pixie hairstyles that are sure to help you achieve the short strands of your dreams!

PIXIE HAIRSTYLE #1: SIDE-SWEPT PIXIE

Looking to add a romantic, flirty touch to your edgy pixie cut? A side-swept pixie is the perfect way to do just that. Follow the steps below and style away!

What you’ll need:

Rat tail comb

L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray

Get the look:

STEP #1: PART YOUR HAIR

Use the end of your rat tail comb to part your hair to the side.

STEP #2: SEAL IN YOUR STYLE

Believe it or not—that’s it! Once you have your hair parted how you like, spritz your strands with a little hairspray to help keep your strands in place.

PIXIE HAIRSTYLE #2: MESSY PIXIE

Want a more laidback pixie hairstyle? A messy pixie is virtually foolproof because, well, it’s supposed to be messy! This straight-out-of-bed ‘do is also totally on-trend.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo

L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty

Get the look:

STEP #1: ADD SOME VOLUME

Need to refresh your strands? Dry shampoo to the rescue! Spritz a dry shampoo with an invisible formula onto your roots to freshen up your mane and give your roots a boost of volume.

STEP #2: MESS IT UP

Grab your pomade and get to it! Start by taking a little bit of product and rubbing it between your palms before running it through your mane. Less is more—so keep adding product as you please until you get the messy, piecey pixie hairstyle of your dreams!

PIXIE HAIRSTYLE #3: SLEEK PIXIE

Slick and sleek is another popular way to style a pixie haircut. Does your pixie consist of longer pieces that you don’t always want hanging in your face? This single-step hairstyle is for you.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel

Get the look:

STEP #1: SLICK IT BACK

This pixie hairstyle is about as easy as it gets. Use hair gel to slick your strands toward the back of your head. Start with a little bit of product and add more as needed. You’ll be left with a sleek, edgy ‘do that won’t get in your face.

Editor’s note: In love with the wet hair look? In that case, make sure to grab a hair gel with a high-shine finish and you can kill two birds with one stone!

PIXIE HAIRSTYLE #4: VOLUMINOUS PIXIE

What haircut doesn’t look good with some added volume? A voluminous pixie is perfect for a night out or a special occasion. So, next time your social calendar includes something exciting, give this hairstyle a try.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray

Get the look:

STEP #1: ADD SOME VOLUME

After washing your mane, grab your hair mousse. Shake well, hold upside down, and dispense some product into your palm. Then, work the mousse evenly throughout damp hair before reaching for your blow-dryer to create a volumized look.

STEP #2: AND SOME MORE VOLUME

Take your volumized pixie up a notch by targeting your roots with a volumizing spray. Spritz the product onto your hair from eight to 12 inches away for all over fullness.

PIXIE HAIRSTYLE #5: SHAGGY PIXIE

Similar to a messy pixie, a shaggy pixie gives off carefree vibes. While it still offers a piecey style, your strands will be swooped in an orderly fashion.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Thickening Medium Hold Cream Paste

Get the look:

STEP #1: GRAB YOUR POMADE

Start with a dime-sized amount of pomade and rub it between your palms. Use the pomade to work your hair toward one side for a side-swept look that defines your individual strands. Rather than have your hair perfectly slicked to the side, use the pomade to create some texture for a shaggy effect. This hairstyle is particularly great for those who have lots of layers in their pixie, as the pomade will help your varying lengths stand out.
