Ask anyone with short hair how they felt after that initial chop and they’ll probably say that cutting their hair was one of the best experiences of their life (so far). In some cases, a big chop is necessary to restart your hair’s health journey, and for others, it’s an instantly gratifying way to hit the reset button on one’s beauty routine or in a larger sense, on life. Besides the obvious edginess of a short hairstyle, specifically, a pixie, going short is easier said than done, especially if you’re going for layers or throwing a new color into the mix, too. This is where the best pixie cut wigs swoop in to save the day because they offer the opportunity to try on a short ‘do, minus the long-term commitment.

Maybe you want to test drive a style for the hell of it. Perhaps you’re considering a dramatic haircut. Or maybe you’re the kind of person who randomly switches up their look just because. Whatever the case, life is too short to put your mane goals on pause, so spice things up right now, even if it’s just a wig that looks like the style you’ve been contemplating. Read on to get the 411 on some of the best pixie cut wigs for every budget.
