Short Hair Inspiration: Messy or Wet Look Pixie?

It is always a lot easier to decide that you want a new haircut than it is finding one that suits your face. If you've already got short hair, or want to go as short as possible, try a pixie cut, which can be worn in one of the two below ways:

The Messy Pixie

The hairstyle: With a messy top that is shorter on the sides and the back, the messy pixie gives you a chic just-out-of-bed look that can be styled to suit any occasion. An edgy option without the high maintenance factor, this pixie cut is cool and interesting.

Adapt the style: Even the messy pixie can be worn in different ways – side-swept, with or without bangs, with a deeper parting or with slightly longer hair. You can also experiment with the colour of your hair when you're trying out the pixie style as its main advantage is its versatility. Try to add some layers for some volume and or cut it close to your head for a more elegant style.

The Wet Look Pixie

The hairstyle: With your cute pixie style in place, the next step could be an added wet look – a daring and edgy that requires some confidence to pull off. This look is achieved by adding some styling gel and tousling your hair around for that added texture.

Adapt the style: Whether it is for a professional or a social event, this look can be changed to suit your occasion. Try a sleek combed back version for a classy touch that will be ideal for your office cocktail party, or a more messy tousled version for a night out on the town. Some hair accessories can also add a little flair to your hair!
