Pixie Cut Hairstyles 2009

Pixie Cut Hairstyles - Rihanna, Victoria Beckham... Had It!!

The pixie cut has been a big part of Hollywood’s most sensational hairstyles since the 1950’s, when Audrey Hepburn won raves for her short hairdo. The pixie was incredibly dominant in the 1960’s as well, when Twiggy, Mia Farrow and Edie Sedgwick took center stage in their boyish hairstyles.
In the 80’s Madonna adopted the look, and today beautiful stars like Natalie Portman, Victoria Beckham, Halle Berry and Rihanna can be found like incredibly sexy and cute in their little pixie curls.

The key thing that these great actresses all share is great facial bone structure. Each of their noses are pointy, and their jaw lines are all very feminine and delicate. The pixie cut can work with strong and large jawbones, but delicate cheekbones are an absolute must for the style to work. The pixie cut is actually not very versatile. There is so little hair involved that if the facial structure isn’t adequate there is very little that a stylist can do to manipulate the hair. However, colors are one area where the pixie can go crazy and still look great.

Any color can be added to the pixie, depending on the audience it is intended for. Madonna designed a bleach blonde pixie that worked incredibly well, but some punk and emo colorations are a little too wild for the red carpet when combined with this look. Pink, the R&B rocker, has worn a short cut with dayglo colors, but she is part of the music scene, which is not as reliant on glamour as the cinematic world.
