“Pixie cuts are known for their short length, typically ranging from half an inch to a few inches long,” Pinegar tells us. “The length may vary based on personal preference and the specific style desired.” 

Aside from their iconic short length, pixie haircuts also often have shorter sides and longer tops. In fact, a lot of trendy pixies have texture and layers, according to Pinegar, who says, “Pixie cuts often incorporate texture or layers to add dimension and movement to the hair. This can be achieved through various cutting techniques such as razoring, point cutting, or layering, resulting in a soft and tousled look.”
