25 of the Most Iconic Pixie Cuts, From Mia Farrow to Zoe Kravitz


Ron Galella

It seems that every starlet these days Hollywood has a platinum blonde pixie, with actresses like Zoë Kravitz and model Cara Delevingne leading the trend on and off the red carpet. The trend continued at Tom Ford’s runway show during New York Fashion Week, where models Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid each sported faux, feathered pixies. While many suggested that Jenner was channeling her mother, Kris Jenner, it’s more likely that Ford was drawing inspiration from the many actresses throughout history, from Audrey Hepburn to Mia Farrow, who have made the pixie cut an iconic hair statement. Other leading ladies have followed in their footsteps. Natalie Portman, for example, buzzed off her locks in preparation for a role, while for those who were bold enough to try the look on their own, like actresses Jennifer Lawrence and model Emma Watson, the pixie cut served as a new style. Here, a look back at the most best pixie cuts over the years.
