Strictly star Oti Mabuse's new short hairstyle wows fans as he takes to Instagram to debut her pixie crop. 

Pixies are having a major moment. They walk the gamut between edgy and feminine — and, in a sea of hair extensions backstage at Strictly Come Dancing, they're also a breath of fresh air.   

The beautiful Strictly champion, 30, shared a beaming selfie as she revealed her new look to her 556k followers. 

More from woman&home:

Looking cosy in a rainbow sweatshirt, the pro dancer captioned the post: "Realised I’ve been posting dog pictures which is so not like me so I thought ok I should break the pattern with a selfie and to say dance class announcement will be made tomorrow. Hope you’re all in the mood to dance again with some of your favourite online teachers and some new ones too."

A massive departure from her usual long locks, her side-swept fringe, frames her face to perfection.

"Cute hair, love that," wrote fellow Strictly pro Dianne Buswell, to which Mabuse replied: "Di salon review. I’m keeping it then, thanks baby."

Feeling inspired? You should as this is one low-maintenance look once it's cut in. To style, simply blast hair with salt spray to add a little grit (waxes and pomades often leave hair looking greasy) and blow-dry bangs to the side using the best hairdryer and a small round brush.
