A pixie cut is a short women’s haircut with short layers at the back and the sides and a longer section at the top. Pixie hairstyles first came about in the 1920s when women experimented with the bob haircuts and other short hairstyles. And thanks to Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, the pixie rose in popularity in the 1950s. Since then, stars like Twiggy, Madonna, Emma Watson, Katy Perry and more, have been fans of them.
Nowadays, pixie cuts remain popular because of the large variety of lengths and modern styles that suit all hair and face types. Another reason short pixie haircuts are loved is due to the fact they’re practical and take less time to style.
