Pixie crop with long fringe
Hair trends have recently moved in three year cycles, and it's been no different for the pixie crop. Hence we now see the pixie crop return to being a very short hairstyle (as it was back in 2007), though in 2010 the pixie crop was a haircut with a longer fringe. Of course, just because a longer cut of the pixie crop was popular in 2010 doesn't meant it has to stay there: though not precisely on-trend it remains a perfect take on the haircut for those not willing to go to the very-short extremes, and also those without perfectly straight hair.

If you are looking for a longer cut to a pixie crop then we recommend you look to actress Carey Mulligan for inspiration (more pictures at the bottom of this page) and wear it with a brow length fringe swept to the side and held in place by a pomade.

And, finally, some inspiration from the last time the pixie crop was on-trend.
Michelle Williams was one star who took the daring move from long hair to pixie crop. This drastic short style worked to give her a very innocent appeal, though with more of a boyish take on the haircut. Another celebrity who sported the cut was Natalie Portman, whose fringe often wasn't pushed forwards.
