A pixie bob is exactly what it sounds like, and it’s a wonderful face-framing look that’s a classic twist on the two hairstyles it’s based on. It combines the style of each, puts them together, and creates a unique look.
There are many ways to style this cut, and there are plenty of lengths and configurations you can have in one. So it can be tricky to decide what look you want to go with when you desire a style like this.
Pixie Bob Haircuts to Experiment
With the pixie bob styles below, you’re sure to find something that clicks and sticks, so why not play with these styles until you find the one you’re looking for?
1. Blonde with Dark Roots
This pixie bob captures the classic bob shape perfectly. It curls in at the ends, it’s a uniform length all around, and it’s very simple.
However, it’s only ear-length, so it’s much shorter than your typical style. The platinum blonde gives it a simple and chic look.
2. Croppy Style with Volume
Are you a fan of a croppy, choppy look? This style has that and a lot of volume on top.
There are some light layers that add to that cropped and choppy look, and they also help add the volume on top which can be achieved with some minimal, tool-free styling.
3. Feathered Blonde with Dark Roots
Some haircuts, like this one, appear shorter than they are. It’s been feathered and fluffed up to more emulate a classic short style, only it has a slightly edgier look.
Dark roots melting into light blonde help add that edgy, highly textured look that this look encompasses.
4. Sleek Mature Cut
Older women will love a very sleek pixie bob haircut that has a mature look to it.
The hair has a side parting towards the front, and it fans out across the back of the head shortly after. The hair is very tight to the head, and the front of one side is shorter than the rest.
5. Pixie Bob with Thick Bangs
It’s all about the bangs here. This look has some thick bangs that fall over one side of the face, and the rest of the hair is very tame and short as it’s pushed back behind the ears.
The hair is jaw-length, so it’s longer than many of the styles above, but it’s still shorter than the average look.
6. Pixie Bob with Undercut
The undercut is classic, so seeing it appear in a pixie bob haircut is wonderful. It provides an edgy look that no other haircut can emulate.
One side of the head is shaved. The other has jaw-length hair at the front and ear tip-length hair at the back.
7. Spiky Layered Look
Want a look that’s fun, ruffled, and spikey? A small amount of hair is jaw-length, and the rest remains cropped short and piled high on top of the head.
Some bangs brush across the forehead, but most of the focus is on the free, spiky hair on top.
8. Hairdo with Thick Bangs
The focus of this look is clearly the bangs. They’re thick and perfect as they sit across the forehead with a slight volume bump.
The rest of the hair is like a highly fashionable afterthought, with thinner strands hanging by the jaw.
9. Asymmetrical Purple Look
You’ll stand out a ton with this pixie bob cut. The hair is a bright pastel purple with some different purple hues in the top, and there’s some turquoise around the ends of the hair.
Bangs cover the forehead and some of the eyes, and a nice curl decorates one side.
10. Teased Layered Look
More mature women will appreciate this pleasant little pixie bob. It has a lot of movement and volume to it due to the small amount of teasing that makes the top and bangs stand slightly raised.
The hair reaches the bottom of the ears at its longest point, giving it an alternative look.
11. Hairstyle with Firey Tones
Here’s a highly unique look you can seek. It’s a dark red color with stripes of orange, brighter red and yellow through it.
It has the classic short cut shape but it’s much longer as it reaches the chin at its longest points.
12. Cotton Candy Pink Curls
Sometimes the style can make the haircut look longer. However, this is around ear-length.
It’s very thick and curly, and it has a silvery pink color like cotton candy, making it a very sweet and unique look.
13. Heavily Textured Curly Cut
Texted hair is hard to look away from. The locks form perfect curls in very distinct patterns all over the head.
Here the style is lots of perfectly shaped elegant curls that are pinned in place. The hair is brushed back and away from the face.
14. Neat Updo
Even super short hair can be put into an updo. Here the hair is all brushed back and secured towards the back of the head.
There’s a large sweep of bangs that’s still prevalent on one side of the face, slanting above the eyebrow.
15. Vivid Pink Cut
Do you want to show your fun personality through your haircut? This vivid pink look will do that.
There are three shades of pink in it, it’s parted at the side and it’s very choppy as it falls to just below the ears in some light layers.
16. Ginger Hair with Bangs
Ginger is always stylish. The look is parted at the crown of the head and has bangs that brush the forehead like a short haircut.
There are longer parts of the hair that fall to the jawline in a longer shape, making it a perfect combination of a pixie haircut and a bob. The way it frames the cheeks makes it great for sharpening a soft, round face.
17. Light Brown with Dark Roots
Here’s a great business casual look that also has a fashionable element where the dark roots grow into a lighter brown color, bordering blonde.
The hair has some volume and is parted at the side, with a very chic vibe to it. More mature one in their late 30s and 40s may find this look very appealing if it matches their personal aesthetic.
18. Purple Edgy Style
You can try this one out if you’re looking for a pixie bob that’s a little longer than average. One side of it covers the face nicely in this vivid purple look. There are also dark roots that are very subtly in it.

This is an easy hairstyle to care for, so just make sure you visit your hairstylist regularly for trims. It’s very easy to style on an everyday basis, though, as it’s difficult for it to get tangled since it’s so short. That’s one of the best things about the cut.
