Not everyone can get away with a pixie hairstyle but women with true oval faces can. Audrey Hepburn was the original celebrity with pixie hair. Then came Audrey Tautou and Natalie Portman. In the past few months, pixie hair has "cropped up" on a host of styish singers and actresses including Ginnifer Goodwin, Carey Mulligan, Halle Berry and ER's Maura Tierney, whose own pixie hair cut was the result of her hair growing out from the effects of chemo.

This cut works best on women with thick, naturally wavy hair, but also looks good on women with straight hair. If you are really tall, you might look like a pinhead in this cut. So who looks good in pixie hair? Women with heart-shaped, square and oval faces.
