Short Pixie Hairstyles – Anne Hathaway

If you want to keep your locks short then pixie hairstyles are fun, and no one understands this better than Oscar winning actress Anne Hathaway.

She has sported a wide array of pixie hairstyles – this however could be zeroed on to the fact that first she got her hair closely cropped, and then as the tresses gained length she styled it in different ways. This shows that the monotony of the same cut can be broken by simply stylizing the hair differently. Therefore, we can see that pixie hairstyles can be experimented with and hence provide variety to the basic cut.

Taking hint from the pretty Hollywood star, let us take a look at 9 ways to style pixie hairstyle like Anne Hathaway.

1) Back Brushed Pixie Hairstyle
