Description

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

Kate Mara is working a layered pixie cut here with fabulous results. This jagged cut ‘do is ideal for ladies like Kate who have petite facial features and a strong bone structure. Kate has a square jaw line which benefits from short styles like this one that bring the focus upwards. Her fine hair type works well with this ‘do too as the layers add texture and body all over, and it gives her high forehead some coverage while framing her eyes. For ladies who like a stylish wash-and-go hairstyle, this pixie cut is an excellent option.

Kate has fair peaches and cream skin that has some pink undertones to it, and light brown/hazel eyes. She is best suited to copper red and brown tones that warm up her skin and bring out her eyes. This chestnut brown shade does just that, plus it gives her hair a rich, healthy-looking finish. Subtle highlights throughout give her color a beautiful sun-kissed glow.

Kate Mara is an American actress who is known for her role in House of Cards.

Styling Steps

1. Wax Hair Down at the Back

Backdown

Apply some wax to your fingertips and then pull through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a sculptured look. Pinch clumps of hair in different directions for a messier result.

2. Style Sides Down Using Wax

Sidesdown

Using a small amount of wax, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward, pinching motion. For added texture, apply more pinching and more wax.

3. Flatten the Top Using Wax

Topsmoothforward

Apply wax to the palms of your hands, and then starting at the top-back area, drag your hands forward, flattening your hair down as you go. For a wetter look use more wax.

4. Style Bangs to the Right Using Wax

Bangsforwardright

Apply wax to your fingertips then drag through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go. Pinching the ends will create soft texture.

5. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
