The sides and back of this pixie cut are clipper cut close the head while the top is longer and cut choppy for a textured look and feel. The bangs are swept forward to frame the eyes and completes the over-all hairstyle brilliantly. Regular trims are needed every 3-4 weeks to maintain this shape.
Katy Perry is sporting a chunky pixie cut here with head-turning results. This jagged cut â€˜do is ideal for ladies like her who have bold facial features and a strong bone structure. She has a rounded jaw line which benefits from short styles like this one that bring the focus upwards to her eyes while showing off her balanced proportions. Her straight hair type works well with this â€˜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 modern wash-and-go hairstyle, this longer version of a pixie cut is an excellent option, especially if they have an bold sense of style like Katy.
Katy has warm skin that has some gold undertones to it, and blue eyes. She is best suited to blonde tones that warm up her skin and bring out her striking eyes but can also pull off cool dark brunette and red tones too. The light platinum blonde shade that we see here is a good choice for Katy as it compliments her coloring and gives her hairdo a chic and stylish finish. Her hair has been colored all over which gives her hairstyle a bold look. Lowlights could be added for a more natural look, if desired, and it will give the appearance of thicker locks- a great trick for ladies with fine, short hair.
Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, known professionally as Katy Perry, is an American singer and songwriter. After singing in church during her childhood, she pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager.

1. Apply Gel Spray to Roots
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. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Hair Messy
Using your blow-dryer, flip your head upside down and dry your hair using your fingers until your hair is completely dry. Remember, the messier, the better.
3. Finger Dry the Back with Blow-dryer
Use your blow-dryer and your fingers to dry the back of your hair by moving your hair around to allow the heat to pass through it.
4. Blow-dry Bangs Forward
When blow-drying your bangs forward, clip your hair back leaving only your bangs out. Position your bangs evenly in your brush, taking the hair in a forward direction. Blow-dry from roots to ends, keeping the tension consistent, and evenly distribute heat over the whole section of hair that you are working on. Repeat until the hair is dry. This will stop any frizz that may occur.

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, and then using your fingers, rake through your bangs pinching the ends as you go to create a feathered, textured effect.
6. Pinch Hair for Texture Using Wax
