The best pixie cut for round face shapes helps create the illusion of a narrower facial shape. It’s shorter in the perimeter of the temples and nape while leaving a longer length on top. The volume on top elongates the face while mimicking an oval shape.
To create the cut, Shannon Bingham, a hairstylist from Omaha, NE says, “I always leave the edges a bit longer for ladies with round face shapes to soften their facial angles. I aim to create the illusion of slimming their faces.”
The shape of the pixie cut for round face shapes is a vital factor that can either make or break a pixie haircut. Bingham suggests adding texture into the cut and avoiding over-texturing it. It’s imperative to know when to stop and where to place the shear blades. She also says to keep an eye out for cowlicks and ripples in the hairline. Depending on your hair type, both can influence the outcome of this cut.
Hair maintenance for this cut is a commitment. Short-length haircuts need rigorous upkeeps as compared to its counterpart.
