The Perfect Pixies

Audrey Hepburn – Oscars 1953


If you’re thinking about taking the chop, Audrey Hepburn is the ultimate example of a perfect pixie.

Carrying the look with classic elegance, she debuted the cut at the Oscars, being the first to popularise the pixie style.

Similarly, Scarlett Johansson has become esteemed for her wide array of hairstyles. However, in recent years the pixie has become her most popular and signature look. In 2017, Scarlett’s striking pompadour-inspired pixie left everybody in awe as she stepped out onto the red carpet.

Radiant Redheads
