Pixie Cut and Short Crops – celebrity short hairstyles

Pixie Cut and Short Crops – celebrity short hairstyles

Sometimes only a dramatic pixie cut and a short crop will do. But you need cheekbones that can cut ice and strong features to do this statement cut justice. As a great hairdresser you need to be telling your clients what will and won’t suit them, and a pixie cut or short crop is all about the face shape.

Pixie Cut with Fringe

We love that Zandaya has mixed her celebrity pixie cut with a full fringe (bangs) – this stops the look from being too extreme, adding a softness around her face and the option to change her style and choice to sport a massive quiff if she so wants.

Alexander Dinter’s haircut shows how to create this cool graduated shape – beautifully contoured, with a softened fringe area for a super feminine finish.

The Classic Agnes

It’s an absolute classic – the blonde crop inspired by Agnes Deyne, back in the day. Pamela Anderson chose to swap her long, trademark locks for this statement pixie crop earlier this year and we think it looks amazing.

Advanced Pixie Cut Crop

Miley Cyrus is never afraid of trying something new, and has one of the best celebrity pixie hairstyles. The shaved sides add another dimension but it’s not for everyone.

For those who want something a little less dramatic than Miley try this great cut by Stacey Broughton, which keeps the drama in the concave shape incorporating steep graduation, scissor and clipper-over-comb and an inward curve in the parting and crown. One for the advanced hairdresser.

Short & Glam

Rhi-Rhi does it again. Is there any look that Rhianna isn’t afraid to try. This look gives a nod back to the 50s and 60s glam of a great songstress or actress – a timeless interpretation of the pixie cut.

Stacey Broughton does it again but this time for the beginner. If you’ve never tried a pixie haircut before this is a great place to start.  As with all MHD videos, there is something for every hairdresser at every level, from beginner, intermediate to advanced.
