It’s official: We’re in our short haircut era. It seems that just about every celebrity—and everyone on my FYP— is going for the chop right now. Bob hairstyles have always been timeless haircut, but lately we’ve seen everyone from Zendaya to Hailey Bieber trading in their longer hair in favour of a jaw-skimming cut. Box bobs, Italian bobs, blunt bobs, French bobs (I could go on and on about the types of bob hairstyles) are all doing the rounds at the moment. But it seems a lot people are inclined to go even shorter this summer—enter the French pixie haircut.

When I think of a pixie haircut, I’m instantly transported to the 2000s, when the likes of Rihanna, Victoria Beckham and Frankie Bridge convinced us to emulate their short cropped styles. But now, the pixie haircut is making yet another comeback and its giving French-girl chic. In fact, searches for ‘French pixie haircut’ are up over 3000% year-on-year, and ‘pixie cut’ has over one billion views and counting on TikTok. So, we’re not seeing this haircut going away anytime toon.
There are so many variations of the pixie haircut. Some have longer lengths at the front for a face-framing fringe, while others can be super-cropped and choppy, giving this haircut plenty of texture.
