Our model's gorgeous layered Pixie haircut is ideal for fine hair and a variety of face shapes. This blonde Pixie is the ideal style for women who want to stay on top of trends and want a manageable look. Layered Pixie cuts are popular the same way they were in the 1950s and 60s, with celebrities like Twiggy, Brigitte Bardot, Lana Turner and Sophia Loren.

This Layered Pixie is a great hairstyle for those with short hair. The back and sides are tapered into the head, followed by layers added through the more extended top section. This layered pixie style looks wildly chic when styled to one side to keep your hair out of the way while exposing your face. This beautiful pixie cut is ideal for fine hair and various face shapes like oval, diamond, and triangular. It is a great look for someone who wants a soft, subtle look and is easy to pull off, especially with the bangs across the forehead and evenly parted to soften the face and complete the over-all 'do brilliantly. The waves are long enough to give it some texture but not so long that this does not work in the face of your hair too.

If you want to keep blonde hair looking great, then you need products for your hair. A leave-in conditioner or spray can help keep strands from getting overly dry and damaged. A layered Pixie is an easy style that will improve your look. No matter what your features are, some styles can make the look of your choice more attractive. Regular color treatments are also needed to keep this light blonde tone looking fresh.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Gel Spray to Roots

step 1

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. Part to the Left

step 2

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 Small Radial Brush

step 3

A small radial brush is used on shorter hair types to add more body or in longer hair types to create curl. 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

step 4

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 the Sides Under

step 5

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.

6. Blow-dry the Top Under to the Right

step 6

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.

7. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

step 7

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.

8. Pinch Hair for Texture Using Wax

step 8

To finish the look, apply wax to your fingertips, making sure to smooth the wax over all of your fingers, then simply pinch the wax onto the ends of your hair, applying as much or as little as needed.

9. Style Bangs to the Right Using Wax

step 9

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.

10. Wax Side Behind Ear

step 10

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, then place it at the roots above your ear and drag it through as you pull your hair behind your ear.
