Short hair is hot and it's not going out of style any time soon. Celebrities are embracing the bold look, so why not you? Pixie cuts are great because you can style them sweet or sassy. “Pixies are synonymous with youth. They can make us feel young and fresh and put together," says stylist Mindy Stegall. Check with your trusted stylist to choose the right style pixie for your face shape and hair type and then start the new year with a new do.

Style tip: Use Indie Hair Putty Clay #wreckit to give your pixie a messy look.

Add definition with a blunt bob!

Looking for only a slight change? Mix it up by getting a fresh blunt cut bob. Ask your stylist for a blunt cut bob that hits right on top of the shoulders, or a lob that lands gently on the collarbone. Top off the look with some fresh bangs if you're feeling adventurous.

Style tip: Keep your bob in place with a great finishing spray such as Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi Finishing Spray.

Be care-free by adding layers!

For a more relaxed and laid back look, add some movement to your hair by adding some layers. You can add some face framing layers, long layers throughout your hair or choppy layers to add a bit of funk to your look. Layers are especially great for changing your look if you've had a blunt cut for a long time.

Style tip: Use a round brush when blow drying to bring layers to life. We love the Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Medium Thermal Brush.

Try something asymmetrical!

This is a style you can make as radical or as conservative as you want. Asymmetrical styles are cut shorter on one side than the other. Consider an a-line cut, inverted bob, or side swept with a shaved side. Check with your stylist who's familiar with your hair type to see what will work best for you.

Style Tip: Asymmetrical cuts are grounded in their shape. Keep your style in place with a stronger hold hairspray such as Scruples Pink Pearl Classic Collection High Definition Hair Spray.
