A trendy textured pixie cut is a short-length chop, flattering most women’s face shapes. It adopts an array of looks from chic and flirty to the androgynous kind.
Missouri-based stylist Janet Biggers points out how versatile a pixie cut is. “It doesn’t matter if your hair is straight or curly; you can still rock a pixie,” she says. “Though it works on a lot of hair types, this cut is ideal on fine to medium hair density.”
Sometimes, thick hair can be hard to maneuver with a shorter style. But if you have coarse hair and want a pixie, Biggers explains, “You’ll need a lot of texturing done to your locks, then leave it long enough to be able to use hot tools to help smooth it more.”
Styling a pixie is quick and easy. “For a longer cut, I use Bedroom.Hair, a texturizing spray that offers strong hold, volume, and texture,” she says. “For shorter chops, I use Night.Rider. It’s a molding paste that offers control and texture when styling with good holding power.”
To maintain the cut’s shape, trimming every 4-6 weeks is vital and washing the hair with shampoo daily is not ideal.
