Shaggy Platinum Blonde Pixie Haircut

Added: 09 Dec 2010
If you don't already know, layered Pixie haircuts are a hot and cute trend right now! The cut is a short-at-the-sides layered haircut with long layers on top. It's best for fine or thin hair that tapers at the ends and is never too bald. A layered Pixie haircut is a great hairstyle if you have a round face, bangs that frame your face well, and layers at the front of your hair. This particular hairstyle looks best on someone with short-length hair and a round or oval-shaped face. It can do wonders for giving a round-faced girl the long-term bangs look. Platinum is a beautiful and elegant hair color for women. It has a silvery quality that shines with vitality and can be challenging to match with clothing.

Platinum highlights are excellent for cutting short hair or styling curly hair, especially if your hair is dark, because they will appear brighter against your more tanned skin. The back of this stunning light blonde hairdo is tapered into the neck for shape, and easy maintenance, blending into the medium layers cut through the sides and top to form this shaggy 'do, which is excellent for those looking for a fun style to complement a long face shape. Regular hair trimming is recommended so the hairstyle will last longer and keep its shape.

Styling Steps

step 1

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.

step 2

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

step 3

Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then pull it through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a textured look.

step 4

Using a small amount of moulding cream, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For added texture, pinch the ends as you go sparingly.

step 5

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then pinch small clumps of hair in an up and forward motion. Pinch the clumps in different directions for a messier look.

step 6

Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for added body. Be sure not to use too much moulding cream at the roots as this can result in a glugy and thick uncomfortable feel.

step 7

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips then gently rake through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go. Be careful not to use too much product as it can become sticky and clumpy.

step 8

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.

step 9

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.
