Key Things to Know First
- It’s important to have your pixie cut by a hairstylist or barber with experience cutting short hair. Short hair requires very different cutting skills!
- If this is your first pixie, don’t cut it too short. I’ve made that mistake before. You don’t know how your hair will lie on your head until you start cutting it shorter. Especially when it comes to cowlicks and natural hair patterns. Some women just can’t pull off a short pixie without the help of a lot of products and a blow dryer or flat iron.
- You’ll need to buy different types of hair products that you may not have used before. This includes wax, pompade, clay, gel or cream. Your stylist should help you out with choosing a product based upon your hair texture, pattern and styling you’re looking for.
- Your face shape becomes more important the shorter you cut your hair. Shorter hair will make your face shape more visible and defined. Below, I’ll show you examples of the best pixies to get for round, square, oval and heart shapes faces.
