Pixie is one of the most popular short hairstyles for women. Its name reminds people of forest elves, fairies and elves. The cute and lively pixie haircut is achieved through a special technology, which suggests that you cut short hair at temples and back of neck, and grow long hair on top of your head.
If your face is round, your pixie must have a volume on it, visually stretching your face to make it closer to the ideal oval shape. Designers suggest that the crown should be combed back to achieve the desired effect. Pixie is a very good choice for thin hair. Whether you choose to cover or expose your ears, you tend to be asymmetrical, which miraculously “preserves” round face.
Pixie Cuts for Round Faces
Pixie offers fantastic opportunities for variety. For round face try pixie with long asymmetrical bangs. They visually cut the broadness of your face, making it narrower. You may also try to introduce a few colorful tresses or a couple of local highlights to refresh your style.
It’s generally believed that pixie haircut flatters only women who have lean, long and somewhat angular faces with large distinct features. Think Audrey Hepburn, Keira Knightley, Linda Evangelista and Agyness Deyn. All of them wore pixie in the past and were actively copied by many girls worldwide.
But the good news is round faces with soft facial features can also benefit from pixie haircut. It often enhances the natural charm of such faces. Let’s see some successful images of pixie haircuts, which are super trendy in 2016.
