Who says short hair isn’t versatile?
My blonde ambition, finally realized.
Book that next appointment to your trustworthy hairdresser for one of the most popular hairstyles of the entire season, the pixie cut.
Not only is it so much easier to maintain (say goodbye to your blow-drier), but it’s totally on trend this season, and looks amazing on blondes, brunettes, and redheads alike!
If you need a little more convincing, we have rounded up some of our favourite pixie cuts of the A/W 2015/16 season below.
Straight, blunt bangs where one of the biggest trends from Paris Fashion Week, especially since they help to carve the swinging sixties set. Ask for additional layers if you hair is thinning out, since it creates the illusion of instant volume.
Where: Burberry Prorsum
Bring some edge to your hair and chop a side fringe. It’s low-maintenance when compared to a front fringe, an can be easily pinned back if you’re having a bad hair day.
Where: Derek Lam
Choose a slicked-back look for those days when you want your makeup to do the talking. To keep all your shorter layers in place, comb a mousse through your ends and secure with a thin elastic.
Where: Dolce and Gabbana
Don’t miss out on those romantic hairstyles featured at Dolce and Gabbana, just use these tricks instead! Choose some classic floral hair accessories and pin them on the thicker parts of your hair.
Where: Emilio Pucci
To modernise your classic pixie cut, try a slightly asymmetrical chop – which is shorter on one side, and longer on the other.

No other celebrity can pull-off a pixie cut quite like actress Sienna Miller, and we were thrilled to see that she had chopped her long locks yet again in 2015.
This is the perfect hairstyle for a new mum, since it is so easy to style on a daily basis. We show you how to nail this look with a few essential products which do the job.
1. Whilst your hair is still damp, using a volumising mousse on the roots to give hair that extra lift. This helps to penetrate the follicle, and will create the illusion of thicker, bouncy hair.

2. Depending on how much time you have, either blow dry your hair or let it air dry naturally. Once hair has completely dried, mist lightly with a thermal heat protectant. This will keep your hair in the best state possible, especially if you have bleached the ends.

3. Take a flat iron, and wrap a thin strand of hair around one side. Leave for 5-10 seconds, then release. Wiggle the hair from side to side in order to create extra body and bounce. Depending on your haircut, you may not need to do this to all of your hair.

4. Finally, finish off your hair by misting lightly with a volumising root spray. This is essential if you want your hair to stay in place for hours!

Who’s the latest celebrity to chop off their hair? Pamela Anderson has ditched her signature bombshell blonde locks and opted for an ultra short pixie cut. We actually had to do a double take!
Anderson, 46, showed off her chic new short haircut in L.A. today – and we think she looks amazing!
Seems like the pixie haircut is one of Hollywood’s favourite celebrity hairstyles – with Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams and Anna Hathaway all sporting the feminine ‘do.
The Baywatch babe who now devotes her time to animal rights was accompanied by ex-husband Rick Salomon. Two weeks ago Anderson admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that the pair have been spending more time together lately, including a holiday to France where they were spotted on a nudist beach.
“I say we’re best friends…with benefits,” she told the talk show host. “I don’t want to meet anyone else…I’m very happy. We’re happy. He’s a great guy.”
What do you think of Pamela Anderson’s new pixie haircut?
Winter is the perfect time to make a major hairstyle change and opt for the chop. Very short hair looks super chic with a turtleneck and trench coat (and gives you enough time before summer to grow it out if you’re not thrilled with the look).
The decision to chop your long hair off can make you quite apprehensive, particularly as you come to the day of your hair cut and still haven’t made the decision of which style to go for! To help you make that decision, here are five of the best very short hairstyles out there right now.
Pixie cut hairstyle
This is a stylish and eye-catching style for thin, fine hair and is a favourite with celebrities like Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway. It will really make your eyes pop, so now is the time to play up your eye makeup with stronger brows and dark lashes.
Short and sleek bob
This is a variation of the pixie cut but with longer and shorter layers to give a sleeker look. This style is perfect for all ages and ideal if you’ve got fine hair and are looking for a more sophisticated, fashionable look as a refreshing change to long, limp locks – just ask Katie Holmes.
Face framing bob
This chic hair cut is short at the back and long enough at the front to frame your face and can suit every face shape, but it particularly compliments a rounder face. For an even more striking look, pair the chop with a bold new hair colour, like Ashlee Simpson’s platinum blonde bob.
Short and messy hairstyle
Messy short styles are among the easiest to maintain, often needing just a quick tousle with some wax – ideal if you’re not a morning person and only have a few minutes to get ready! Short and messy hairstyles also suit different face shapes. Drew Barrymore’s messy bob is both sexy and sophisticated.
Classic bob with fringe
There are so many variations to the classic bob, though a very short version with a bold fringe is trending once more and really gives body to otherwise flyaway hair. Dannii Minogue’s bob and fringe is one of our favourite hairstyles of all time. It’s more high maintenance than other bob hairstyles, but you can style the fringe in many ways, including a side swept fringe, clipped up away from the face or tousled in soft waves.
