How to Wear Pixie Hair

Pixie hair is stylish and cute. Celebrities, such as Sharon Stone and Charlize Theron, have even donned this fun cut. The pixie cut, although very cute and easy to maintain, is not for every face shape. An oval face is the preferred shape. The pixie style on other face shapes can bring out negative qualities of the facial features, such as on fleshing out cheeks on a round face and accentuating a broad forehead on a heart-shaped face. The pixie cut is easy to style, but there are a few rules to remember.

Things You'll Need

  • Hairspray
  • Styling gel or wax
  • Small curling iron (optional)

Instructions

    • 1

      Be comfortable with your skin and facial features. There is no hiding behind sweeping bangs or long locks with this cut. Pixie cuts tend to bring out natural beauty and, at times, can be very bold.

      Work the pixie cut according to the texture of your hair. Most pixie cuts fall well with hair that is a medium type, meaning that it is not too thin or too thick. Wavy hair also can work well, giving it texture and natural style.

      Maintain the style by visiting a hair salon every two to four weeks. This will keep a tight, polished look to the style. Also, use hair gels, wax, and hairspray to style to a desired look each day.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use a small curling iron to achieve a flipped-out look.
  • Highlights can add dimension to the style.
