Short Hair - The Pixie

Short Hair - The Pixie
The pixie haircut burst on the scene in the 1960’s when model Twiggy cropped her hair shorter than any model ever had. She started a trend, that for years was called the Twiggy. The pixie makes an appearance as a trend every so often. It has been a trade mark style for Sharon Stone, Halle Berry, Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes, each with woman has made it her own with her own variation. The pixie hair style can be very effective in showing off a beautiful face with small features. It is equally wearable for those with fine hair and those with coarse hair. It is low maintenance. Very little blow drying and almost no heat styling is required.

If you are a short hair girl, you love the control and ease of wearing of the pixie. This new pixie style has the same head hugging shape as the pixie has always had. It is fitted at the neckline but left just long enough to be soft and feminine. This style is cut short and in the crown. Enough texturizing is added so that it is easy fluff up for fullness.

One side of this pixie is left long. Choose the side that you prefer for your bangs. The layers of this side extend to about chin length, giving the style a bob-like appearance. Wear the bangs at eyebrow length and down or wear them longer and sweep them to the side. The other side is also left long but only to ear lobe length.

To change its appearance, the sides of this style can be worn toward the face or tucked neatly behind one of both ears.

This pixie requires expert shaping and texturizing.

If your hair is medium to coarse in texture, dry it using your fingers to direct it. Finish it by adding Hair Cream or Hair Wax to separate the layers and add definition.

If your hair is fine or limp, apply styling gel or styling foam for body. Use a blow dryer and your fingers to style it dry. Use a narrow flat iron to bend some pieces and add fullness. To add the finishing touches, apply Hair Cream or Hair Pomade. Scrunch it in and separate the pieces with your fingers.

The pixie is lovely in any hair color. This model is wearing light to medium brown with light blonde highlights that show off the layers.
