If there’s one word for short pixie haircuts, it’s bold. As women, we often use our hair as a security blanket. The longer, the better. But since we have so many trendy options (undercuts, designs, shaved sides, pastel colors, etc.) why not go for a bolder haircut? You can always grow it out if tired of cropped locks!

The short pixie cut can work for you in many ways. Here are 50 examples from the best hairstylists of Instagram:
