While almost all pixie hairstyles look great on oval, square and heart-shaped faces, this particular style looks great on round face shape because it adds lift at the top of the head, elongating a round face.

"All those little pieces help emphasize the cheekbones and eyes; it's almost as if you build in cheekbones with this cut," says stylist Jimmy Paul in Allure Magazine.
