Some can argue that Maggie Gyllenhaal is the queen of the Pixie cut, and this hairstyle shows us why she is the queen. Almost all pixie hairstyles look fantastic on oval, square, and heart-shaped faces. This particular style complements round face shapes by providing angles that visually soften the roundness of your face. This cut will elongate it even more if you have a long face. Maggie has taken the sides of her pixie cut and twisted them to give this look an exciting new feature that frames her face and softens the edges of her face shape. This is such an easy styling tool for you to do and adds a fun new element to your look. She has flicked the top of her hair to the side, which creates the illusion that her hair is fuller. It also adds some length to the top of her hair, which elongates her face.
When it comes to your makeup application, you can follow in Maggie's footsteps and go for a more subtle makeup application and add a bold lip to give your look a feature that draws everyone's attention. Do not forget to highlight and contour your face and neck area. This will help you create the illusion of a perfect oval face shape, and you are ready for your event!

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.
2. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
3. Blow-dry Straight Back
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.
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.
Apply some gel to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for added body.
6. Pinch Hair for Texture Using Gel
Apply gel to your fingertips and then pinch small clumps of hair in an up and forward motion. For a messier look, pinch the clumps in different directions.
7. Softly Flick Sides Using Gel
Apply a small amount of gel to your fingertips, and then starting about halfway down the hair shaft, pinch and drag the hair in a downward motion before flicking the ends out.
