A bouncy and flamboyant pixie for the young at heart. Cut long on top and leaving long strands falling over the eyes, for a feisty girl. A definite unkempt and nonconformist appearance and if worn with dark eye make up by a brunette would appear almost gothic.

The ditsy dizzy blonde look as expertly sported by the likes of Cameron Diaz in 'There's Something About Mary', 'The Holiday' and 'Knight and Day'. With a number of long strands giving a wider, fuller and taller appearance.

The ruffled pixie, instead of having a neat and even finish has a deliberate uneven and ruffled cut to give the appearance of elegance but also bouncy and windswept.

The classic bob haircut is so popular that most women will have worn it at some point in their lives. The length can have a huge variety from short, chin length to shoulder length. It's a versatile cut for women with all hair types from pin straight to very curly.

The cropped pixie is so popular that there are several blogs dedicated to it. A beauty staple for celebrities such as rock star Pink, Charlize Theron and Carey Mulligan. Considered bold, edgy and a liberating move for many women who shed their long locks for something very different.

Neat Parting on this Quirky Style.

In this day and age, looking unique is a real mission, everybody attempts it and as a result, nobody achieves it! This is something you can work with. It's a rare event indeed when someone invents a brand new hairstyle. Innovations are often rebooted retro designs and this is no exception. It might have jumped the gender gap but it's still from the Eighties. So get your Wham cassettes out and have a bit of a party!

 

Working with textures can be key to creating fabulous hairstyles. The texture is perfect for those women that have finer locks because it helps to create a degree of fullness. The third picture is a side parted design but less defined.

Flamboyant Pixie Cut.

The bouncy pixie cut offers fun and flirty femininity. Some other pixies have shortened strands that are almost too close to the scalp, especially with fine hair like this model. This design has interesting texture and appearance of motion, though. The top is a little teased and messy but that gives the desired height and volume. The thin bangs at the front frame the face by elongating and showing off the interesting bone structure.

 

The dark color is a nice contrast to the pale skin but different tones of reds, browns or blondes would be excellent too.

Shag Nouvelle.

You need not always stick to convention. Locks are as much part of an overall look that needs updating and deserves attention. Flattened in places but still funky and stylish, the back is lengthy and reaches the nape. The sides are cut into varying lengths with a razor and the front has wispy side swept bangs. The razor cutting technique is what gives it a textured edge.

 

In terms of styling, the majority is blonde but the roots and the back are light browns and the individual strands are styled into semi-spikes. The cut is to the middle of the neck and longish on the sides but uneven and very striking. Bound to cause heads to turn especially if worn with aplomb. To follow is a similar ruffled design on light colored hair.

Elegant Ruffled Pixie.

May be a bit scary for some people's taste but it has movement and texture that make it a standout look. Cropped at the back and the sides have different long and short layers. The front has thin short bangs that cut across the forehead that make it less wide and obvious. Tresses at the crown also come in short layers, giving the cut more height and volume.

 

Wear at any age, although it seems to be a young girls style, the elegance would be equally at home on someone wearing a business suit or evening dress. Suitable for any shade although lighter would be preferable.

Classic Bob with Curls.

Ludicrously cool short curly bob. The humbug effect colors in the longer curls are especially effective. The balayage coloring technique would most effective at producing this. Paint freehand stripes of your desired color on small sections, allow it to develop while protecting the rest with foil or something similar. Once styled the color will blend with the curls. Achieve more height using volumizing powders or sprays on your roots. They give added lift but many also give extra texture and shine.

 

One of the hippest styles right now is loose waves. You could add character with a cute braid or two above one ear fastened at the back. Twirling a flat iron about midway up and pulling through gives loose, romantic curls and waves that will flatter any face shape with added texture and dimension.

Use those Curls.

For natural curls, manage this with easy to use products and a blow dryer with diffuser for added volume that won't result in frizzy curls. Famous faces framed by this hairstyle include Jennifer Aniston, Heidi Klum, Scarlett Johansson and Colleen Atwood.

Spikey and blonde.

Products are certain to become your new best friends when you decide to sport this short style.

 

Women with curly or wavy hair may find themselves styling with some even harder setting gel or putty to get that quiff. Or calm it for a choppy and pieced out look, like Morena Bacarrain or Keri Russel. Use a cool setting on your dryer or using a ceramic plated brush to aid setting and add shine.

Beachy and Windswept.

This cut does require regular visits to your stylist. Maintain the length to stop the hair looking too unkempt or shaggy. If your hair is very fine and you opt for this, add some texturizing spray to the daily routine like Garnier's Deconstructed Beach Spray or John Frieda's Beach Blonde Sea Waves.
