Pixie Chicks

The Pixie has never gone out of style, perhaps because it is so easy to care for. Hair is cut short on the back and sides of the head, and slightly longer on the top. The length can range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches in others. Halle Berry and Michelle Williams sport their Pixies on the red carpet … or any carpet for that matter.
