The sides and back of this short sassy hairstyle are tapered into the head while the top is jagged cut for a textured look and feel. The bangs are swept over to the side to soften the face and completes the over-all hairstyle brilliantly. Regular trims are needed every 4-6 weeks to maintain this shape.
Our model flaunts a textured pixie cut here with fabulous results. This jagged cut â€˜do is ideal for ladies like her who have petite 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 fine 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 stylish wash-and-go hairstyle, this graduated pixie cut is an excellent option.
Our model has a warm, golden skin tone that has some yellow undertones to it, and dark blue eyes. She is best suited to blonde and brown tones that warm up her skin and bring out her eyes. This platinum 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 in one striking tone. Low-lights could be added for a more natural look and added dimension, if desired. Product is needed to hold this style in place and lift the roots for extra volume.
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
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. 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 in Circular Movements with Fingers and Palm
Using a blow-dryer on a low heat setting, use the palm of your hand in slow circular movements to dry off the hair and to create a disorganized effect.
5. 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.
6. Pinch Hair for Texture Using Wax
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.
7. Style Bangs to the Right Using Wax
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.
8. Wax Side Behind Ear
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.
9. Apply Hairspray
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.
