Description

The sides and back of this short and sophisticated hairstyle are tapered into the head while the top is layered for a textured look and feel. The bangs are swept across the forehead to soften the face and completes the over-all hairstyle brilliantly. Regular trims are needed every 4-6 weeks to maintain this shape.

Lauren Morelli flaunts a longer pixie cut here with fabulous results. This jagged cut ‘do is ideal for ladies like her who have delicate facial features and strong cheekbone structure. She has a squared jaw line which benefits from short styles like this one that bring the focus upwards. Her 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 hairstyle with a Sixties feel to it, this graduated pixie cut is an excellent option.

Lauren has an ivory skin tone that has some gold undertones to it, and light green eyes. She is best suited to blonde and brown tones that warm up her skin and bring out her light eyes the best. This golden blonde shade does just that, plus it gives her hair a chic and stylish finish. No highlights are needed here as this pixie 'do looks best this uniform tone. Low-lights have be added for a more natural look and added dimension. Product is needed to hold this style in place and lift the roots for extra volume.

Lauren Morelli is an American writer best known for her work on the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Mousse

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Part to the Left

Partleft

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. Use a Medium Radial Brush

Brushmedium

A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

4. Blow-dry the Crown

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.

5. Blow-dry Hair Under to the Right

Topstylingright

Take a section of your hair no wider than the diameter of your brush. Place your brush under and at the roots of your section. Then with your blow-dryer above, drag the brush up through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair following with your blow-dryer and pulling the hair to the right. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.

6. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.

7. Lift Roots Using Wax

Apply some hard wax to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for soft volume.

8. Wax Side Behind Ear
