There's a point in every woman's life that requires a daring and bold outlook. A prime method of exhibiting those qualities are trendy but unique aspects. Goodness knows pixies are in mode currently. Every celebrity from Jennifer Lawrence to Anne Hathaway has sported one. Maintainable, other than frequent trimming costs, shampoo, ruffle dry, and head out the door.

Counterculture diversifies over time but it's always been about pushing against the grain. Back in the day, it meant growing it out or wearing specific clothing combinations. Strive to be distinctive in a world where everything's been done, how about asymmetry? One of the freshest hipster looks was a crop. Of course, everyone started wearing that too, so a further unique spin was essential.

There are two types of curls. There's the loose kind, the kind one wakes up and embraces. It screams, "I'm fun and youthful!" Sporting it may radiate a lackadaisical air. Then there are ringlets you encourage. Bend the world around that pinky or curling wand.

Inventing is fun, what can you invent with short locks? Experimenting can produce personalized, interesting new designs.

Combine elements, spice up life. What's hipster fashion if not looking poor while dressing well? Or mixing pixies, dresses, and heavy makeup? Variations are boundless. Interesting and seems a trifle messy but is trimmed to perfection and under total control. A big, loud design that'll cause passersby to take a second glance. Something you could wear to important occasions, like work gatherings, or romantic dates.

Three lengths? Short, medium and long but there's much in the intermediate ranges. Sometimes pixies aren't enough, sometimes shoulder-length locks are uncontrollable and stubborn so they rebel against their mistress.

On trend, spectacular, and ideal for younger women carrying the strength and confidence to do it justice. Its jagged edges are amazing. A design that can be approached from a variety of angles for a day in the office or night on the town.

Fun Arrives in the Guise of a Blunt Fringe. These Bangs will Turn Heads Everywhere! Nothing Says Powerful Like Some Precise Coils. Unique Twisty Rings. Nothing Says Elegant Like a Touch of Bedhead! Even Locks Need a Fun Night Out Now and Again. Modern, hip, young, stylish pixie on the longer side.

Neat Pixie Showing Blunt Bangs.

It's especially fun to get a pixie if you've been long for a while. There's nothing quite like the startled expressions on everyone's faces when waist-length tresses are suddenly barely reaching ear level! Drastic change is always an entertaining way to kick off summer. The perfect pixie is adorable especially if it's personalized. J Law is only in her mid-twenties. If you're in your late fifties and mimicking her might cause eyebrows to raise in consternation. So what alternatives are in right now? The answer's the Sixtiess, everyone's rocking the Sixties niche right now. Countercultural loud colors, tie-dyed long tresses, formal flower dresses, bands, and bobs.

 

Precise blunt bangs are quite angled, these are the details where individuality and uniqueness thrive. Create partings using clippers to draw attention to what remains, amplify the back by teasing your roots. You can also wrap the hair at the scalp around a cylindrical brush and blow-dry, leaving it fuller or use a curling iron from root level. Try curling pins for a genuine retro feel!

Separate the Layers.

Separate into two or three layers. You'll need bobby pins since it'll be tough to get ties or equivalent in due to the restricted length. Starting at the bottom-most layer, work your comb in rapid, circular motions to tease into shape. Hairspray is your best friend when boosting volume, remember, not too much now you've got less to work on. To skip the volumizing step, take pieces of the front edge and part as pictured. Add a headband to show a separation between the front and back and voila! You're rocking this pixie derivative.

Asymmetrical Fringe in Dark Brown.

Combining blunt fringes with incredible asymmetry. Starting near the top of the forehead, they feather out as normal. The only difference is the comparative length. Be wary, it isn't for the faint-hearted, and isn't viable in combination with every facial shape. Prominent forehead? It may be best to stear clear completely, it can bring attention to unattractive areas if worn incorrectly.

 

An attention grabber, adorable, especially with big glasses, subtle makeup, and professional photography. Although the fringe is the first part you'll notice, there's more to consider. Angle the rest to have a short back and longer front, graceful and can be arranged different ways, here it's coiled. In general, it's wise to curl away from the face. Love spending time in front of the camera? Wear something popular and rare, allowing both fashionable and unique.

Against the Grain.

Going against the grain is tremendous fun, but we need to eat. Still wearable to office jobs, taking minimal upkeep. Feel like moving on? The front will blend accordingly as it grows.

Every Strand in Place in Perfect Ringlets.

We're aiming for the looks-can-kill-so-don't-try-me kind of coils. How to create such a perfect finish? Many think of loops and ringlets as what happens when we wake up too late to heat up straighteners. Using a curling iron or wand is the best way to achieve a finish so alluring. After clipping the top 2/3 out of the way, brush snags out of your bottom layer, then curl in about 1-1.5-inch sections. Allow cooling without brushing.

 

Repeat on the top layer except on the front hem. These coils start directly above the ear, so keep the top part nice and straight. The only touching up needed is gentle clustering of the spirals. Making individual loops combine into what appear to be miniature buns. Turn your blow-dryer to cool and run it through your hard work helping it stay in place by setting.

Setting Bangs.

To set the front section (before using hairspray, while allowing coils to cool and set). You'll be straightening the front against its natural direction. Take a straightener or flat iron and twist to create volume. Only twist near your scalp; everything else should be straight. Then flip your front hem to the side you want them and allow cooling.

Spiral Rows.

Featuring a beautiful hazelnut color boasting blonde highlights, very reminiscent of Emma Watson's lovely pixie, or Lena Dunham's style. On normal days it's a nice boyish cut, simple but chic. The uniqueness derives from rows of loops.

 

You'll get stopped in the street and asked where the inspiration came from and how it's created. All you need is a flat iron, not even tongs for these curls! Straighten, but flip out the ends of your uppermost layer, the only part endowed with sufficient length in the model pictured's case.

Pretty and Unique.

Section and split into ponytails to recover, flick your wrist in the same direction each time. Some might cling to another, giving volume and ramping up the cuteness. It should take only a couple minutes each side. You may even end up doing only one side; adorable and classy.

Ruffled and Slightly Bed-Head.

There are a couple of routes to achieve this delightful example. One idea is rollers, remove them, apply a lot of styling wax or mousse, and saunter out of the house in something scandalous.

 

Another is tongs. Since there's limited length, you won't be rolling continuously. Set the warmed tongs at the base, turning your wrist slowly towards your skull, giving huge waves. Imagine your head has a center point, right on top and dead in its middle. You want all coils to be aligned facing this central point. You can change their angle later.

 

The lower parts should be reaching up, and correct product use will ensure they remain that way. Repeat until all waves are perfect. A pressing concern should be potential heat damage, take this into consideration when using heated tools.

 

There are extensive options for the rest of your apparel, your best bet is big, dark makeup and boyish clothing. Dark skinny jeans and a white shirt or a cute jean jacket. Leap off your motorcycle or moped radiating a European vibe, sexy and sultry, wild and yet sophisticated.

Dark Volume.

You could straighten it, but curves or waves would create an equal kick. You could even mix it and incorporate a dose of each! Curling the tips is the most fun possible. There's only a handful designs that shine, having only a curl here and there, but here's one example.

 

There's lots of room for experimentation. Place your part far to the right and curl only the tips or start from the tops of the ears. Part it many different ways and still stand out. You could pay for one design, and yet have many different hairstyles at your disposal! The possibilities are literally infinite, due to multiple layers. Twisting your straightener at the base of the strands, adds volume that will give a very punky appearance.

Youthful Appearance.

A youthful image, perfect for a night dancing or partying, straightening gives a more professional appearance. Works seven days a week, even on days off! Getting a punky polish? (Referring to the finish not the language). Combine bold make-up and jewelry, white or silver eye shadow would work well, fling in light blues, and cat-eye mascara. Fake lashes are always fun to experiment on. For a more professional finish, thin eyeliner and natural-looking lip color would complement and contrast the uniqueness.

 

The bangs are feathered at various lengths. Although they're fine lying across the forehead width, they could also be pushed to the side, or pinned up out the way. Want extra volume? Time to tease! Seeking a meeker image? Straighten and part for side sections!

Seventies Retro.

The first impressions this particular crop emanates are retro and chic. The jagged chops and volume are reminiscent of Final Fantasy characters. A true epitome of confidence and strength, choose to have the ends curled inwards or straight. A long pixie that's been around for decades and popularized by the iconic Audrey Hepburn.

 

Young, hip and stylish pixies have thin textured tips, wispy side-swept bangs, and the lifted crown appears upbeat due to its messier and scruffier appearance. Daily wash and wear for the college chick or the young working woman. Make the ends straight or curled inward which can transform a more polished vibe. In contrast, the following idea is a bit more traditional.
