8 Ways to Style a Pixie Haircut with Bangs
A new season is as good an excuse as any to change up your hairstyle, and with the sweltering summer months just around the corner, you might be looking to shed a few layers as a cut. If you’re nodding right now, you might consider a pixie haircut with bangs. Pixies are a timeless take on shorts, and adding a bit of fringing to the front is the perfect way to modernize the look.
Rising temperatures make the ultra-short cut even more alluring. “Pixies are a perfect summer option because they’re light and airy — nothing to take off your face in the heat or humidity,” notes Antonia Wazir, hairstylist and global Mizani curl specialist. Plus, less hair means less time spent melting in front of the mirror. “You’re not stuck in a damp bathroom with a hair dryer and heated tools, sweating it out before you leave,” adds Devin Graciano, hairstylist and product development manager at Goldie Locks, on the look of the elf.
Beyond the logistics, rocking a pixie cut with bangs is a surefire way to ooze easy glamor that’s sure to turn heads — and few cuts are as versatile. There truly is a pixie for every mood, whether you’re feeling bold and daring or chic and elegant. Larry Sims, celebrity hairstylist and co-founder of Flawless by Gabrielle Union, recommends that you just keep your face shape in mind. He also says to go to a professional for the cut and opt for a style that you can maintain at home with minimal heat, to ensure “hair integrity”. But have fun with it because, as Sims says, pixie haircuts are “effortless, sexy, and fly-away — all at the same time.”
