Jennifer Lopez routinely stuns on magazine covers. Her just-revealed March 2021 Allure offering was even more striking than usual, thanks in large part to her piecey pixie. We were so impressed we couldn’t wait to search for other pixie cuts for inspiration. While the slightly shaggy silhouette works great for J.Lo, it may not be ideal for everyone else. After all, different face shapes look better with different styles. Fortunately, the runways offer plenty of inspo.
There are closely cropped cuts of the super straight, curly or even buzzed varieties. Or you can favor extra volume with lots of layers. Bangs come in sideswept, asymmetric or even baby forms. And don’t be afraid to dye your strands a shocking hue or rely on highlights to take your pixie up a few notches. See below for some truly stylish pixie cuts courtesy of recent runways.
