Perhaps you best remember Victoria Beckham best from her time as Posh Spice of the pop group the Spice Girls.

Or maybe you are more familiar with her as an author or a fashion designer. But, there is a good chance that you have recently caught sight of her cute and trendy pixie cut!

Victoria Beckham has made the pixie cut her own look. And now, with a little bit of time, you can make it yours!

A New Style

Victoria sported a sleek bob for a long time. But, the new pixie cut is getting her plenty of attention from the photographers.

When you are looking at Victoria Beckham's look, you'll find that there are a few ways to get it for yourself.

First, if you have never gone this short before, rest assured; this is a look that does quite well with a variety of different faces or body types.

While some heavier women believe that they cannot “pull off” a look that is as short as Victoria Beckhams new pixie cut.

The truth is that it can be quite flattering. It often has the effect of lifting your face and making it look a lot brighter. Also, it can lengthen a round face by showing off more of your forehead.

Make It Your Own

Be bold and see if this is the look that will suit you best! When you go to get this look take a picture of Beckham's bob with your hairstylist.

You will find that this look is quite versatile. And while it is shaped fairly uniformly in the back. The side-swept bangs can be a lot of fun to style on your own.

You can also modify this look a bit. Cut shorter bangs or bangs that fall to your chin for a wonderfully angular look.

In this case, you will find that Beckham's adorable pixie cut can be easily maintained. With a comb. a bit of hair gel and routine maintenance. With the most attention paid to the last part.

Maintaining A Short Pixie

This look appeals to many women. But you may find that after a few weeks, it looks off or a little shaggy.

Think about the fact that most people have hair that grows at a rate of half an inch per month. It doesn't seem so much. Until you realize how much difference half an inch of hair can make to this style. Keep your pixie haircut looking sharp with a trim every six weeks.

You Still Have Styling Options

This pixie cut is one that places a lot of focus on sharp and sleek. Interestingly enough, one thing to avoid when you are going for this is washing your hair too much.

When you wash your hair, you are stripping all of the oils out of it. And leaving it fluffy and flyaway. While this is definitely cute, remember that it is not the look that you are going for here.

Mornings Just Got Easier!

In the morning, you can take your pick between mousse for a more natural look. Or use gel for a sharper appearance.

If you wash your hair, pat it dry rather than rubbing it to prevent frizz and puffiness. Distribute the gel throughout your hair using a wide-toothed comb.
