One Pixie Cut, 4 Holiday Looks

Myth: Having short hair means your 'do doesn't have a lot of options for holiday fabulousness. Sound like something you've been told? Don't listen to that. Cropped hair can go places other hair lengths can't. And, in terms of 'tis-the-season party style, this means you've got a whole world of volume and texture at your fingertips. We wanted our pixies higher and more eye-catching, and to play around with everything from punk-inspired shapes to ultra-pretty mod 'dos. So, we called in Ricardo Dinis, Aveda's Global Artistic Haircutting Director, to show us how to transform a short pixie into all kinds of holiday gorgeousness.
Chloe, our model for this adventure, has the sides of her head buzzed, and a long fringe on top. That longer top piece is the key to versatility. Check out the four looks we created with her ‘do and let us know if you're feeling inspired to take your crop from cute to holiday-perfect.
