Romance and grit combine for a new take on the pixie cut. The shape is soft and feminine with a grungy edge. A piecey, brow-dusting fringe is balanced by tapered sides and back. The long top looks great sleek, textured or voluminous, for styles that work with leather jackets, elegant gowns or your favorite t-shirt. The shape can be yours in a few simple steps; read on to find out how. –– Laura Martin 

Step 1: This cut uses tight graduation to quickly increase length from bottom to top. Ask your stylist for a tapered pixie with lots of texture.

Step 2: Set and style spray and a pea of hair creme will smooth and separate strands for a controlled and defined finish. Apply both to hair before drying with fingers or a paddle brush.

Step 3: Finishing products will change the character of this style. Use refinish dry shampoo to add toughness, texture paste for quirkiness, pomade for polish.
