Trend Alert: Pixie Cuts Are In

Ultra-short pixie cuts and boy crops are all the rage right now. "Short styles are popular because they're a great way to keep your beauty routine low maintenance. "Short hair that frames the face is sexy, young and chic, plus it's easy to style."

Wondering if you have what it takes to pull off this super-cute look. It's all in your face shape. Here are a few recommendations:

If your face is long or oval, an angular bob cropped close to the neck is best. Be sure the hair follows the jaw line in front for the most flattering look. Women with oval faces should avoid pixies that add layers to the top of the hair, as the excess volume will only elongate the face further.

For square faces, think short and spiky. "A pixie cut is great for women with square faces because it brings out the eyes and cheekbones, making the face look softer and more feminine." Avoid a style that is chin-length because this will only accentuate the harshness of the jaw line.

If your face is round or heart shaped, you'll want a look that is slimming. Go for longer layers and wispy bangs that are brushed off to the side. "Long layers around the face are very slimming and highlight the area around the eyes rather than the cheeks where round faces tend to be a bit fuller. Also, flipping the ends out vs. under is more slimming and creates that chopped, edgy appearance.

If you love that short and sweet look but don’t want to cut your hair try a pixie weave cap.
