A short and sassy pixie has become extremely popular in many hairstylists’ chairs. What was once an edgy haircut has become the standard for women seeking a streamlined and polished look. In order to add some punch to your new pixie cut, we recommend adding in a lovely or fun color. From rich dark dyes to punchy primary hues, we have 20 looks below that are sure to inspire.
Colorful Pixie Cuts
It’s much easier and safer to try new hues on shorter lengths. A cool short cut plus a stunning hair color is a winning combo and a nice way to change your appearance drastically, if it’s something you are in the mood for!
#1: Blonde Faux Mohawk with Bangs
If you want to wear a fringe with your pixie, but are worried about a look that is reminiscent of a bowl cut, it is important to add layers to the top section and get the sides clipped short. These two points create an edgy Mohawk-inspired style, while still providing a length on top.
#2: Lavender Pixie Cut with Highlights
When you want to rock a fun color like lavender, the darkened roots are a way to make your hair color more sophisticated. This creates depth and keeps your edgy cut from looking overwhelming. Plus, incorporating the darker elements makes the hue less sweet.
#3: Creamsicle Waves
By mixing platinum roots with golden copper ends you create a white and orange effect similar to everyone’s favorite ice cream—the creamsicle! Keep the style from falling flat with a retro pompadour styled in a modern way.
#4: Chin-Length Fuschia Cut with Etched Design
This is not a classic pixie cut. The cool fuschia pixie-bob is an edgy alternative to the popular today short haircuts in candy-coated and pink pastel colors. Blunt bangs and chin-length choppy layers provide a great texture and cute silhouette of the cut. If you want to try a design, but don’t want to rock it every day, get an undercut that you only showcase when you pin your hair up.
#5: Pixie with Long Side Bangs
The edginess in this look comes from the drastic difference in lengths between the long bang and the length of the cut. The ash brown base color with thin dark blonde highlights creates a shimmering effect throughout your style that is an elegant touch to such a sassy cut.
#6: Red Pixie Cut With Brown Striped Mohawk
Square face shapes can benefit from short haircuts with textured top. With clipped sides and a design towards the nape, it is best to reserve any color for the central section to keep the look from seeming too gimmicky and cluttered.
#7: Asymmetrical Cut with Long Side Bang
Sweet waves and shaggy layers are always an appealing combination, but if you want a look that is different from everyone else’s, simply inject a pop of color. Side bangs are also wonderful to balance out thin faces.
#8: Curly Bangs for Long Faces
Balance out your bouncy side bang with shorter curls in the back. This brunette pixie cut with a side part really complements long face shapes.
#9: Pixie With Edgy Layered Bangs
Relaxed black hair looks shinier and healthier in a natural black hue. But, if you crave for a color, try layering and white blonde highlights throughout your bang. This technique is helpful because you can use clip-in pieces to protect your hair from damaging bleach.
#10: Bleach Blonde Pixie Cut As Fauxhawk
Bleach blonde hair is a favorite among rock stars due to its ability to be sexy and sweet at the same time. Take a cue from a style icon like Gwen Stefani and pair your hue with a signature red lip.
#11: Spiked Brunette Pixie with Brown Blonde Highlights
Show off chiseled cheekbones by drawing attention to them with a spunky bang. This style is perfect for a night spent club hopping with your gal pals.
#12: Asymmetrical Brown Curls with Violet Accents
An asymmetrical bang is all the rage because it flatters most face shapes. Sweet medium curls are the perfect pairing with an edgy brunette pixie cut that boasts closely cropped sides and colorful highlights.
#13: Layered Brown-Purple Pixie
Forget fifty shades of grey and instead go for fifty shades of purple! By combining multiple violet hues, you can transform a standard layered pixie cut into something very interesting and chic.
#14: Brown Pixie Cut with Layered Side Bang
Sometimes it’s best to stick with the tried and true styles. A rich mahogany pixie with long layers is a classic look that can work for any occasion and in any setting.
#15: Very Short Cut with Green Bang
Here is another great example of playing with proportions. You can use it to achieve an edgy result. This stunning pixie also incorporates a color for a truly head-turning hairstyle. The green ombre side bang still manages to appear lightweight and charming.
#16: Pixie Cut with Purple Highlights
Soft waves are usually romantic, but when combined with a shaved design and violet highlights, they become tough and exciting. It is a great way to show off your individuality, especially if you work in a creative environment.
#17: Jet Black Pixie With Choppy Layers
African American women with relaxed or straightened hair should receive regular trims, as using chemicals can lead to split ends and breakage. A layered hairstyle such as this is easy to maintain – it will keep its shape and lovely texture between the trims.
#18: Retro Wavy Fiery Red Style
Rock a red pixie cut with flair by combining different red shades to achieve an ombre effect. Create texture with flat curls that add a wave-like effect to the front of your style. This hairdo is perfect for women who don’t wear a lot of makeup, as the color will brighten your complexion and add vibrancy.
#19: Rainbow Pixie for Round Faces
Use many different colors to create one huge impact; this style blends red and yellow but you could try any color for a similar effect. Long layers on one side elongate round faces for a slimmer look.
#20: Blue Pixie Cut for Heart Shaped Faces
This is a proof that you can sport colored hair at any age. It is all about your confidence and personal style. To balance out the shades of dark blue, stick with sleek layers all around.
Pixie is a universally flattering style that can be worn in a variety of different ways – curly, wavy, straight, messy, sleek, asymmetrical and with a color pop. While the hairdo usually has the reputation of being buttoned-up, these looks show that with a healthy dose of color the classic haircut can be transformed.
