The sides and back of this short sassy 'do are tapered into the head while the top is jagged cut for a textured look and feel all over. The jagged cut bangs are worn forward to frame the eyes and show off the highlighted front. Regular trims are needed every 4-6 weeks to maintain this shape.
Our model is flaunting a layered pixie cut here for a cool and edgy look. This jagged cut â€˜do is ideal for ladies who have petite facial features and a strong bone structure, and who like to flaunt a stylish and edgy 'do. Our model has an angular jaw line and strong cheekbones which benefits from short styles like this one that bring the focus upwards. Her thick, 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 stylish 'do with minimal styling time and fashion-forward results, this spiky pixie cut is an excellent option.
Our model has a medium skin tone that has some gold undertones to it, and dark eyes. She is best suited to rich black and brown tones that warm up her skin and bring out her eyes. This espresso brown base shade does just that, plus it gives her hair a rich, healthy-looking finish. Bold blonde highlights throughout the front panel gives her color a beautiful sun-kissed glow and adds extra edge to her hairstyle.
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. 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.
3. 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.
4. Use a Small Radial Brush
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.
5. Blow-dry the Top Back
Starting just above the crown take a section of your hair that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush underneath and at the roots of your section and then with your blow-dryer in front, drag the brush up and then turn it under when you reach the ends.
6. 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.
7. Style the Back Messy Using Wax
Apply wax to your palms and then roughly rub the wax into back of your style. Use circular hand movements for a messier finish.
8. Spike Top Using Wax
Apply wax to your fingertips, then grab a small section of hair and rub the wax in before twisting and pulling your hair upwards. Repeat in each new section. For longer lasting spikes use a generous amount of hard wax.
9. Style Bangs Forward Using Wax
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.
