Nelly Furtado Short Straight Pixie Hairstyle - Black
Nelly Furtado is looking elegant here in a short and sweet hairstyle. It is flattering to her features as the fringe helps to balance the width of her face and the sleek styling helps to keep a focus on her best feature -her bright, expressive eyes. Nelly's delicate facial features are complimented by this short’ do and her side-swept bangs focus the attention on her beautiful eyes. The end result is a feminine, modern and sophisticated look with some added lift at the roots.
Nelly is a natural dark brunette with blue eyes and an olive complexion. Here, she goes for a inky black color that flatters her skin tone and brings out her eyes while creating dimension and interest to her cut. No highlights are needed here--this color looks best on its own, and pixie cuts tend to look better in one rich vibrant hair color as opposed to a highlighted look.
Nelly Kim Furtado is a Canadian singer, songwriter and record producer. Furtado first gained fame with her critical acclaimed and successful debut album Whoa, Nelly! which spawned two top 10 hits.

1 . Comb Hair
Comb your hair into the desired direction that you require for styling.
2 . Part to the Left
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
3 . Blow-dry the Crown
To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.
4 . Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
5 . Blow-dry Bangs to the Left
To blow-dry your bangs you will need to take your brush and firstly make sure the section is no wider than the diameter of the brush. Next, place your brush on top of your head and under your section. Using your blow-dryer on a medium setting, blow-dry your hair from the roots, slowly working your way to the ends. Make sure to keep the blow-dryer in front of the brush at all times. Continue this step until the bangs are completely dry.
6 . Style Sides Down Using Gel
Using a small amount of gel, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For added texture, pinch the ends as you go.
7 . Style Side Behind Ear Using Gel
Apply a small amount of gel to your fingertips, then place it at the roots above your ear and drag it through as you pull your hair behind your ear.
8 . Style Bangs Up and to the Right Using Gel
Apply a small amount of gel to your fingers, then starting at your roots, apply the gel as you drag your hair in an upwards, to the right, motion.
