In our previous post, we discussed the Pixie cut hairstyle and everything related to it. We went into detail regarding the research that the individual has to carry out prior to the actual hairstyle. In this part of the series, we will be speaking in depth about the actual pixie cut and the post-hairstyle care that you need to know.
Previously, we covered the facial structure and background that would best suit the pixie cut. Once you decide to take the plunge of the pixie plunge, go ahead with it. It is one of the most daring moves to make in the hair world but it is worth it as you will not only feel much lighter but you will also find it relatively easier to care for. The best part about having short hair is the fact that ends of the hair are relatively concealed which make split-ends and untrimmed hair unnoticeable.
A popular assumption about short hair is that it leaves you with limited styling options; which is, however, untrue. However, as more and more celebrities like and opt for the pixie cut, they’ve proven just how versatile the cut can be. In actuality, short hair may not be as fuss-free as it may seem but just a little blow-drying and hair mousse can go a long way. Here are a few helpful tips and tricks to handling your pixie cut:
Adding shine to your hair will give it the appearance of health and nourishment. Wash your hair regularly and keep your hair clean for a smooth appearance. Apply a shine serum or oil for an added enriched look.
A sleek and straight look is easy to maintain and carry off, as well. The hair falls downwards in this look, emphasizing your eyes hence if your hair is on the longer side of the pixie cut spectrum; make sure to straighten it downwards for a sleek fall.
For a texturized look with added height, use a sculpting wax or mousse to add a choppy texture to your hair, push it backwards to add height to the look and then finish off with a setting hairspray to keep it in place.
