A pixie cut is a short hairstyle worn by women, generally short on the back and sides of the head and slightly longer on the top. Pixie cuts were popularized first in the late 1950s when Audrey Hepburn wore the style in her debut film Roman Holiday, and later in the 1960s by actress Mia Farrow and British supermodel Twiggy, then even later by Laugh-In star Goldie Hawn.
The pixie cut has been or is being worn by women of all ages today, including celebrities such as Halle Berry, Jamie Lee Curtis, Mariska Hargitay, Rihanna, Alyssa Milano, Natalie Portman, Winona Ryder, Michelle Williams, Keira Knightley, Katie Holmes, Mandy Moore, Elisha Cuthbert, Victoria Beckham, Ashley Greene, Lauren Holly, Nena, Carey Mulligan, Ginnifer Goodwin, Dannii Minogue, Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron, Miley Cyrus, Frankie Sandford, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Thirlby, Sandy Duncan, Evan Rachel Wood, Emily Browning, Ashlee Simpson, Lea Seydoux, and Emma Watson.
Depending on the style, pixies range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches long in others. Pixies are very easy to maintain and can be worn casually, or dressed up for special occasions.
