Five of the Best Pixie Crops – And Why We Love Them!

Unlike some hair trends (the 80s curly perm, anyone?!) the cute pixie crop looks like it’s here to stay. It’s been sported by everyone from The Saturdays’ Frankie to Big Brother’s Emma Willis – and we’ve noticed a huge surge in customers asking for the short and sharp hair cut in the last few months alone.

While it’s a brave look (there really is no going back once you’ve had your hair cut this short), the pixie crop – when done well – really does seem to work for most women. The trick here is simply choosing the right length and style of crop.
So, in homage to this exciting look, we’re bringing you a rundown of our top five (in no particular order, we might add) pixie crops of the last few years.

The ‘Posh’ Pixie Crop

Victoria-Beckham-via-So-FeminineNot since her long but sharp bob (as seen during her Spice Girls days) has a VB hair style created such an impact! That’s right; Victoria’s boyish but oh so chic crop sparked a thousand copycats. A heavily-requested hair cut in our hair Leeds salons; this is a look that’s as stylish as Mrs Beckham’s clothing collection. But is it a hair do that will work for you? Why not pop into the salon and we’ll talk you through the best crop for your face shape.

The Peroxide Blonde ‘Supermodel’ Crop

Agyness-Deyn-via-So-FeminineWith her striking good looks, Manchester-born supermodel Agyness Deyn was always going to stand out. But it was this white blonde pixie crop that really gave her the edge. It’s a look that represents a bold move for anyone looking to change their hair style (the colour means it’s doubly eye-catching), but it’s one we reckon is guaranteed tot turn heads – and for the right reasons!

The ‘Boyish’ Pixie Crop

Natalie-Portman-via-InStyleIf you’re going to give the pixie crop a go, we recommend you gear up to this style seen above on the beautiful Natalie Portman. There really is no going back from this; it’s short, sharp and masculine in style. But it really works for Natalie, with her dainty, pretty features.

The ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ Crop

Rihanna-via-hairstylepopular-comIf you’re unsure whether the pixie crop will suit you, we don’t suggest you opt for the Rihanna one seen here. While it undoubtedly complements the chart-topping pop star’s style, it’s not a look that will work for everyone. The reason here is the short, retro-inspired fringe; it only really complement some face shapes – and when poorly executed it can simply look masculine.

The ‘Dench’ Crop

Judi-Dench-via-hairstylesweeklyThink of a short crop and we bet the first person that springs to mind is Judi Dench and her soft, face-framing ‘do. Proving that this style works just as well on the older lady, Judi has never looked better. The actress has, however, always chosen a shorter cut over big, bouncy curls or long and glossy tresses – and looking at this picture, it isn’t hard to see why.
