Should you want a similar style, Priano says it’s important to communicate with your stylist. “Mentioning key elements like ‘short and layered with a soft, feathered texture around the edges’ can give a clear idea.” And she along with celebrity stylist, (and House of Frieda Partner), Dave Stanwell, agree that bringing reference photos with you to the salon is key.

Scared that the whisper pixie isn’t for you? Stanwell assures us, “This haircut is great because you can adjust the cut based on how you want it.” Especially if you have a hairstylist that you really trust who will take things like face shape and hair thickness into consideration. “For example, if you have thicker hair and curls, you’ll need lots more texture than if you have naturally straight or fine hair,” explains Stanwell.

Other than Hill, there are plenty of other celebs with similar cuts that you can look to for inspo. Coi Leray, Florence Pugh, Halsey, and Teyana Taylor come to mind as those who have recently made the chop. And of course, there are the mainstays with this style like Michelle Williams and Zoë Kravitz.

But, there were lots more before them, too, especially when the pixie cut had its last wave of popularity in the ’90s. Halle Berry, Winona Ryder, Linda Evangelista, and even Kate Moss may jog your memory.

Convinced to snip yet? If so, we have some pointers on how best to style your new chop. And if you’re on the fence, maybe knowing a little bit more about the maintenance that a whisper pixie entails will help you decide whether it’s for you.

“You can wash and go, which is the joy of shorter styles,” says Stanwell. “They always take much less time to style and it’s fun to switch up your look.” He suggests that all you need in your arsenal is “a little styling cream, sea spray, or pomade just to really lock the look in place all day long.”
