Description

The sides and back of this chic 'do are tapered into the head while the top is jagged cut to the side for a textured look and feel all over. The bangs are swept across the forehead to soften the face and completes the over-all hairstyle well. Regular trims is needed every 4-6 weeks to maintain this shape.

Our model is sporting a voluminous pixie cut here with fabulous results. This jagged cut ‘do is ideal for ladies like her who have strong facial features and bone structure. Our model has a triangular face and rounded jaw line which benefits from short styles like this one that camouflages the broad forehead and brings the attention to her face. Her straight hair texture works well with this ‘do too as the layers add shape and body all over, along with oodles of volume at the crown. For ladies who like a stylish easy-to-do hairstyle, this pixie cut is an excellent option.

Our model has fair skin that has some pink undertones to it, and light hazel eyes. She is best suited to copper red, blonde and brown tones that warm up her skin and bring out her eyes. This duotone look combines two of these colors for a fabulous finish- platinum blonde on the bottom and auburn on the top. For an ultra fashion forward feel- the hair has been separated into two horizontal sections and colored for a striking contrast. This is an ideal color technique for ladies who want to make a statement and who are bored with the traditional highlighting/coloring looks.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Gel Spray to Roots

Gelsprayroots

Hold the gel spray no closer than 3 inches from your hair and then evenly mist the gel spray into the roots to create a stronger hold style. Gel spray will hold well and will not look wet or weigh the hair down. Using your gel spray in this fashion will create added hold and a longer lasting style.

2. Blow-dry in Circular Movements with Fingers and Palm
