One thing all Singaporeans often complain about is the hot and humid weather. It’s nice that there’s summery skies and warm air all year round. But let’s admit it, we have definitely experienced days where we just wished we had shorter hair, in particular, pixie cuts.

The good news is that if you’ve considered going short, 2019 will be the best year because pixie cut is back in the limelight. Who can forget the beautiful Miss Vietnam sporting a short pixie cut in the Miss Universe pageant this year? If you recall, she was one of the top five finalists and rocked a pixie haircut like its nobody’s business.

So if you’re considering getting this sexy cut, we’ll tell you how to style a pixie cut in different ways.

What Does A Pixie Cut Look Like?

First thing’s first, let’s get this out of the way. A pixie hairstyle is cropped short at the sides of the head and at the back of the head. Specifically, it has layers styled with a slight tousled effect.

Some of the most gorgeous celebrities including Natalie Portman and Katy Perry have rocked a pixie cut.

Types Of Face Shapes That Look Fantastic With A Pixie Cut

You may be still wondering if you should really take the leap of faith to get your hair cut. Maybe knowing if your face shape is suitable for a pixie cut would help you make a better choice.

If you have an oval shaped face, congrats! Any haircut, long or short, will look good on you. That means a pixie cut will also frame your face nicely. 

If your face is shaped in a heart, then the pixie cut is the ideal hairstyle for you. However, just make sure to not add too much volume at the top of your head to avoid looking imbalanced.

If you have a square face, a pixie cut would work well too. You can soften your strong jaw by making your pixie cut more layered rather than even, throughout.
