A well styled curly pixie cut is one of 2018’s cutest haircuts around. Pixie hairstyles blew up around the time Twiggy, iconic model of the sixties, chopped off her hair. The problem with that hairstyle for women? Her hair was straight. Lots of people think you have to be Twiggy (or maybe Natalie Portman) to pull off this cute hairstyle, but honestly, this style can be universally flattering. If your stylist understands how to cut curly hair, a curly pixie cut might be just what your hair needs. It’s easier to maintain and cuts down on the time you spend pleading with your curls to behave.
50 Cute Curly Pixie Cuts That You Can Pull Off
You think there’s still no way you could pull off a curly pixie cut. This style is for girls with board straight hair that never frizzes in humidity. Not even close. So many girls wish they had your curly hair, so it’s time to embrace it. If it’s time for a change from straightening your curly hair into a long style that takes forever, maybe you should break out of the mold and try out one of the most classic looks of all time, the curly pixie cut or short weave style. It’s bold. It’s romantic. It’s a little playful, and it’s definitely flattering on just about anyone.
Curly pixie cuts don’t require a lot of maintenance or upkeep. If you’re fighting with your curls every morning, it might be time to give them a rest with cute easy hairstyles for girls. A well-styled cut or short weave hairstyle encourages curls to fall into place because of carefully constructed layers that provide curls breathing room. Instead of trying to tame them, curls can be their natural wild selves (and you’re out the door in five minutes flat). We’ve put together a list of our fifty favorite curly pixie hairstyles and hair ideas for some serious inspiration. They cover a range of hair textures, types, and thicknesses as well as different face shapes.
1) Soft And Natural Pixie Cut Curly Hair
Our first look relies on thick natural curls for a romantic pixie style. Soft curls frame the face and beg for fingers running through it. It’s an effortless and cool style that works well for both casual and evening activities.
2) Wet Style Natural Curls With Face Framing Strands
This look is an edgy upgrade to the first style. A little more product helps the curls draw up for a rebellious yet simple hairdo that stays put all day. Pair it with bold makeup and a sweet leather jacket for a look channeling old rock and roll.
3) Trendy Silver Curls With Shaved Undercuts
Didn’t think the gray hair could be a bold choice? This trendy hair color gets an upgrade with a mop of soft curls on top and tightly shaved underneath. The close cut draws the eye upward to the shock of silvery locks. We are huge fans of bold silver earrings to match the tone.
4) Shock Of White Pixie Style Faux Hawk
The bright white shock of curls on top creates the look of an edgy faux hawk. Wrap large curls around big barrel rollers or other types of equipment so that you create a towering frame of bold, large curls. Tightly cropped hair underneath completes the look for a bold, unexpected choice.
5) Soft Blond Asymmetrical Pixie With Side Sweep
A pixie cut doesn’t always mean shaving your head. This side-swept pretty hairstyle is longer on top and short in the back. It sweeps dramatically over your eyes for a playful, flirty look that doesn’t render you completely exposed. If you love tucking hair behind your ear flirtatiously, you can still do that.
6) Curly And Straight Red Tone Short Weave Style
This look is beautiful if you like to change up the texture of your hair. In the first, a straight style and deep side part create a sleek, professional look for the day. Adding a pile of curls is a great weekend or evening alternative when you need something with a little more fun and play.
7) Deep Edgy Pixie Cut Curly Hair
This is our most drastic hairstyle yet. If you’re ready for a super bold look, shave the underneath of your hair and create a deep side part of free-flowing, luxe curls that remain soft and pliable. It looks great with a few well-placed tattoos though we’d never recommend you get a tattoo to match your hair (but do comment if you do)!
8) Spiky Curly Pixie Riot Grrrl ‘Do
Riot Grrrl was a movement of women’s empowerment, and this hairdo brings their influence right to the top of your head. It’s a little spicier and a little more dangerous. Shave the underneath close and revel in your newfound identity as a strong, dangerous woman.
9) Soft Blond Pixie Cut With Bold Eyebrows
Curly pixie cuts bring your style to the forefront. Eyebrows can make or break this bold choice because there’s nothing to hide behind. Pair this soft, blond curly cut with a bold dark brow for the best of both flirty and edgy worlds. It’s an unexpected twist on the clean face and hair.
10) Multi-Colored Mermaid Inspired Faux Hawk
Sometimes you need to go all out with your bold statements. This hairdo is a full-on fashion statement worthy of the fashion runway. It uses tones of silver, turquoise, and purple in a wavy tone to mimic the shimmer of a mermaid’s tail. Spike the longer top locks for maximum height and impact.
11) Shaggy Red Country Diva Pixie
Country women during the eighties were some of the most rock and roll characters that ever were. Continue their legacy with this shaggy Reba-inspired red curly pixie cut that’s easy to maintain and never fussy. It looks fantastic with some worn-in denim for a decidedly fun weekend look.
12) Tight Micro Curls With Close Shaved Neck
This pixie works with the natural texture of your hair for an easy to maintain style. You won’t have to worry about using a bunch of unhealthy product or heat tools. Just wash and let your curls bounce into their natural place. It’s a great look for someone who doesn’t have time for straighteners.
13) Romantic 90s Inspired Pixie With Curly Bangs

We’ve talked a lot about shaving the underneath but this time let your hair grow out just a bit for a soft, face-framing pretty hairstyle. It’s a very simple hairdo that doesn’t require constant maintenance and trims. This one is all about the softness of the curls and the face-framing style. Pair it with all the flowy fabrics or maybe some fuss-free overalls.
15) Ultra Short Pixie With Side Swept Bangs
This asymmetrical pixie is very short overall, but it allows for some length in the front to tuck away behind your ear. It softens your face and gives you a little more play in how you can style your hair. Here, it’s swept to the side, but you could also sweep your bangs back for a faux hawk style.
16) Long Front Farrah Inspired Pixie
Love the sexy look of Farrah Fawcett’s hair but can’t stand the thought of so much hair on you all the time? Leave the front of your pixie longer so you can curl them back for that same sexy look with way less weight. It’s light and infinitely more comfortable than a full head of hair.
17) Pink And Blonde Ombre Pixie
Pink will never go out of style. Use it to your advantage as a pink to blonde ombre pixie for something with high impact but low maintenance. The soft pink goes really well with the platinum blonde, and keep the edges wavy for a more casual look. Pink will always be the new black.
18) Red Tips With Natural Tight Curls
This bold hairstyle is one of the easiest of them all. Work with the natural texture of your hair by keeping the top slightly longer and shaving underneath very close. The curved detail of the upper shave accentuates the impact of the entire hairstyle and takes it from blah to bomb.
19) Dramatically Soft Curls With Bold Purple Tint
Purple is the color of royalty. Use the latest royal wedding as inspiration for this bold yet soft pixie. Tint your hair a dark purple so that it can be seen in the light. Keep the curls light and mostly product free so there’s plenty of movement for the light to catch. /p>
20) Cute Curl Flips With Side Part
When you need a more styled hairdo, you can still incorporate some of your curls. Use ombre to accentuate a few accent curls in this sweet, side-parted pixie.

Instead of using curls to create your signature faux hawk look. Darker red curls frame the top and gradually fade into orange in the middle. The result is a visually appealing, slightly edgy look that complements day and night activities. It’s simple to maintain and will turn more than a few heads.
23) Fresh Face And A Head Full Of Curls
