For an edgy and sexy look this season, the pixie hair cut is the leading trend for celebrities opting to go for a shorter route. If you were wondering why celebs would chop of their luscious locks, just think about all the pros of having a shorter do: short hair requires less product to create a desired look; it puts more focus on your exquisite facial features; there are less tangles to deal with; and a short hair cut is a beauty timesaver for women who dread long hours in the salon chair. Specifically, the pixie hair cut’s boyish, yet feminine look makes it a go-to hair cut for the fashion forward girl on the go.

It’s important to keep in mind that pixie is not for everyone. Yet, with the right face shape and bone structure, it can highlight defined cheekbones, elongate the neckline, and you never have to worry about it going out of style.
