Do you want short hair with a funky look? Then this wavy two-tone hairstyle is for you. It is perfect for those women who are not ready to return to their long straight hair and want to stick with the pixie haircut. A two-tone wavy Pixie cut that has height at the top is one of the most popular hairstyles today that has been making waves in the beauty world. This wavy hairstyle is a unique and a trendy way to gain attention from people who feel it is too long. This short and funky 'do is cut short through the back and sides, while the top is jagged cut and left longer to achieve this asymmetric style. It may look difficult to achieve, but you can pull it off with some product know-how without looking like a bush-hating beast has just mauled you.

This wavy two-tone pixie haircut is finished off with a cute fringe. The top is curled and teased to create height and lift for a fab finish. The bangs have been layered to dust the eyebrows and frame the eyes. This look is achieved by taking apart and trimming the straight ends around an inch or so to make the Pixie look thicker and more natural. Product is needed to piece out the ends to create this look.

Styling Steps

step 1

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.

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.

step 3

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.

step 4

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.

step 5

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.

step 6

Starting at the front, take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until all of the hair through your front and sides has been curled.

step 7

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

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.

step 9

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingers, then starting at your roots, apply the wax as you drag your hair in an upwards, to the right, motion.

step 10

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.
