If you’ve been consider a Mohawk but you don’t want to rock anything that’s too short, go with a curly one like this. If the top was straightened, it would be a lot longer than how it appears.

This is a delightful kind of hair cut if you’re planning on spending most of your summer in summer dresses and flowing shorts and tanks. (Girly, girly, girly!)

This is basically a pixie cut. That gives it a bit of distinction is the fact that the sides and back are significantly shorter. Probably due to a razor or better yet, a set of clippers.

7. Classic pixie cut

And then there’s the classic pixie. Regardless of your age or body type, you’ll look really angelic with a cut like this one.

9. Flipped pixie cut

One of the best things about pixie cuts is that there are oh so many ways to style them. For instance, if you happen to have a pixie that comes with longer bangs, why not flip them from time to time?

10. Longer layered Mohawk

If you were looking at her from the front, you probably wouldn’t even catch that this was a Mohawk. If you want a cut that has a bit of “funk” to it but you don’t want to go through the awkward phase of growing it out, this style can easily give you the best of both worlds.

11. Asymmetrical straight pixie cut

Is your hair naturally straight and a bit on the thin side? Don’t chemically perm it. You have the perfect texture for this asymmetrical pixie.

12. Pixie cut for thick hair

And then here’s a pixie that’s lovely for thick hair. We like how the way it’s styled makes it appear so retro.

13. Full pixie with medium choppy bangs

If you look really closely, you’ll notice that her bangs are not all the same length. That’s what makes this pixie rare. Well, that and how she chose to make her sideburns flip going outwards rather than lay along the side of her face.

14. Short and layered bob

A short bob of this length would typically look a bit…old and bland. But with the layers added, there’s plenty of movement which makes it look really chic.

15. Layered wavy short ‘do

Love it! From sunrise to sunset. Finger waves are what give this cut the texture that it has. Just put some in while your hair is wet and tease it a bit with your fingers once it is dry!

16. Half-and-half cut

If you love pixies and love bobs, this half-and-half cut is a sexy way to have your hair both ways.

17. Modified Mohawk shag

It’s definitely a hot summer cut. And that blue streak on top of that jet black! Whew!

19. Pixie with long layers and highlights

Highlights are always a part of the summertime look and flair. So get a pixie with some long layers and then add a few brown or red highlights. You’ll be ready for the pool, the beach…whatever.

20. “Flip curls” short cut

This is a pixie cut that’s a bit unrecognizable simply because rather than curling her hair downwards, she decided to curl it upwards instead. #verycute

21. Layered short shag

This is another take on a shag. Only it’s all one length around the bottom and the layers are really long throughout the top and sides. (We really like that color too!)

22. Natural Mohawk

If you’re a black woman who wants to go chemical-free, how about a natural Mohawk like this one. We like it.

23. Smooth and sleek pixie

A tank and some cut-off jeans or a halter dress made out of organic cotton. We can imagine both outfits with a smooth and sleek pixie like this one.

24. Rose gold short cut

One of the most popular hair colors right now is rose gold. So if you happen to already be in love with the haircut that you currently have, something else that you can do is change the color to one similar to this. You’ll be in style and summer ready if you do!
