Short pixie haircuts are the best way to show off your facial features and keeping your hair out of your face while looking stylish at the same time. Pixie hairstyles offer a perfect blend of boyishness, bold, and effeminate appeal, and here are the best low maintenance pixie cuts you should try – They last longer and do not require so much dedication to keep them looking good.
1 Messy Bed head Pixie Haircut
If you are rocking an extra-short pixie cut, tousle up the locks to get that sexy bedhead finish. This stylish pixie haircut also features sides that have been cropped short (not buzzed) to shape the look and also to put more emphasis on the choppy locks on top.
2 Spiky Blonde Easy Pixie
A great idea for a unique pixie hairstyle would be to keep the locks short and give them a choppy cut to make them look spiky and wild. In this example, the top carries slightly more length and texture while the sides have been tapered slightly at the temples and just above the ears. Opting for this kind of fade gives you more hair to work with while retaining the boyish appeal of the pixie cut.
3 Undercut Pixie Cut
If you are going for something a little crisper, try buzzing the sides short instead of just shortening them slightly. The short, boyish cut is great for softly shaped feminine faces and also helps you show off your best features.
4 Platinum Short Pixie Cut
Use color to bring out your eyes and to complement your skin tone. This icy pixie cut takes on a unique platinum hue with a dark under layer to give it more depth and dimensions. The sides have only been shortened slightly, leaving the top full of short, fuzzy locks that look very appealing and convenient.
5 Short Pixie Cut With Layers
Keep your pixie cut a bit longer if you want to give it a layered finish. This is great for texture and also helps to create a sort of shattered fringe that stylishly drapes over the forehead. Pixie cuts such as these are great if you are looking to rock a slightly less boyish style and they are easy to maintain.
6 Blonde Faux Hawk
Mohawk hairdos take on numerous variations, one of which can be styled from a pixie. You can shorten or style the sides flat to create a more distinct finish. The blonde locks on the top have been given a bit of tousling to add more texture and also the right volume and height.
7 Simple and Sultry Low Maintenance Pixie Cut
You don’t need wild textures or bold colors to rock a unique pixie haircut. Try a fairly regular variation with an even cut and slightly tousled texture to give you a tame yet seductive look. This is one of the easiest pixie haircuts to maintain as leaving it long enough only makes it better by giving give it some height and a soft frame at the sides and back.
8 Peach Pixie with Undercut
Combine different textures by using an undercut to embellish your pixie hairdo. The short, spiky locks on top have been gently swooped to one side to expose the smooth, pale blonde under shave. These two sections create stylish textural contrast. Keeping the sides and the back that short also gives you a crisper, more classic playful pixie haircut.
9 Swooped Golden Pixie
This style of short pixie cut has been worn by a good number of famous celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Michelle Williams, and even Chris Jenner. To achieve this, you can spice up any regular pixie hairdo by simply brushing it to one side. The radiant, golden locks in this example create a wonderful asymmetrical appeal when softly swooped to one side. This creates a softer, more effeminate frame for the delicate shape of the face and also lets you show off your features.

The longer the locks in your choppy pixie cut, the wilder the look will be.

Tousling the locks infuses the pixie cut with a stylishly outlandish edge which is further enhanced by the silvery hue of the hair and the slight side part which separates the thick curls on top with the short sides.

If crisp is not your style, go for this effortlessly effeminate pixie cut with a slight asymmetrical appeal and a stylish side-swept fringe. Give the look lots of natural texture by wearing the locks tousled and leaving a long bang at the front to sweep diagonally across the face for a sexier finish.
