Celebs like Michelle Williams and Emma Watson have made the pixie covetable. And although it’s a risky cut, it’s just that — a haircut, and hair does grow back. These leading ladies are proving that the transition from short to long hair can be worry-free, and even a great style all in itself.
1. Snip Often
It may sound counterintuitive, but the key to making the transition period work is constant trims. With so many short layers, you need to trim consistently to bring strands closer to the same length. After almost a year of growing out her pixie, Emma Watson finally has a collarbone-skimming style with soft side bangs for added movement.
2. Go Asymmetrical
Michelle Williams has created a new cut for us to envy — the wispy banged pixie. The asymmetrical cut is quirky and flattering. With hair longer in front, this cut will transition seamlessly into a bob.
3. Keep Bangs In Check
Since Anne Hathaway first debuted her pixie, she’s also added bangs to the mix. However, unlike Michelle’s, her bangs are only slightly longer than the rest of her hair, and they end above her eyes.
4. Try Texture
Evan Rachel Wood has let her hair grow into a soft, above-the-chin crop. This look works so well because of the texture. Evan’s piece-y waves hide any imperfections, like strands growing in longer than others.
5. Go Choppy
Once her pixie grew a few inches, Ginnifer Goodwin added choppy layers to better frame her face.
