Fantasia Barrino     Black  Pixie  Cut with Side Swept Bangs - Visual Story


The sides and back of this look are cropped close to the head while the longer length through the top is curled perfectly to add a movement and shape. This fancy hairstyle is perfect to turn heads at any special occasion and needs strong hold product to keep it in place all day or night.

Fantasia Barrino is fond of wearing head turning hairstyles and her latest one is no exception. This hairstyle looks fabulous on her oblong face shape and brings all of the attention to her stunning features. Fantasia has large, expressive features so rocking a super short pixie cut is easy for her to do. But here she has managed to add a twist with some large curls. The closely cropped sides of this cut show off her long neck and high cheekbones, while the jagged fringe in the front covers her high forehead. Overall this is a great cut for Fantasia that works with her face shape and hair type well.

Fantasia has a very soft-looking complexion that is a gorgeous medium brown tone. She also has eyes that are dark brown which make her suited to dark brown and black hair the best. Here, she has chosen a shiny jet black shade to complete her ‘do. This is an excellent color choice for her as it makes her eyes pop and gives her complexion a warm glow.

Fantasia Barrino is an American R&B singer, songwriter, actress, and author. She rose to fame as the winner of the third season of the reality television series American Idol in 2004.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

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.

2. Use a Blow-dryer and a Diffuser to Dry Curls

step 2

Using your diffuser, gently scrunch your hair dry in a rotating direction. Make sure the blow-dryer speed is on low and try not to completely dry the hair off as leaving a little bit of moisture will ensure that your curls do not frizz.

3. Style Bangs to the Right Using Wax

step 3

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.

4. Lift Roots Using Wax

step 4

Apply some hard wax to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for soft volume.

5. Pinch Hair for Texture Using Wax

step 5

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.

6. Apply Hairspray

step 6

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.
