Being locked down in quarantine had us all going mad. People have been going crazy about pixie hair cuts. You too huh ?
Well let me explain something, Short hair styles does not suit everyone. To have a pixie haircut the face has to be really defined. This goes for the features as well. You can’t have a short hair styles if you have a long face. Otherwise the face will look longer.
To have a pixie haircut one preferably has to have a diamond shape, meaning – High cheekbones, preferably small / round or defined nose. However round faces can pull it off too . Even square faces sometimes. Therefore to figure if you can pull of a pixie look it is best to consult your hairstylist first. Nevertheless lets get into some short hairstyles one can try once this covid-19 situation hopefully tames down.
This is a short hairstyle that Zendaya is pulling of in this picture.This look is very short for the face therefore preferably one shall have defined face. One shall style this all combed downwards with a cute curtain bang on front. This sort of give a 70’s look.
This White pixie is slightly longer than the one above. One can style this looks with some light wax backwards. keep that side bang defined and slightly out of your face.
This cute pixie is one of our favorites It is not short to the extreme. This can give a very retro look. However one can still style is as straight. Styling it as straight will give it more of a formal look. While styling it as curly can give it a more funky look . Which will look adorable really. With this haircut you can swing both classy and casual. It’s really cool.
There is also the shaved side pixie. This is very comfortable for who has a natural wave or curl. As the sides are shaves so those are out of your hands. Nevertheless your left with the rest of the top area to style. With some medium to strong wax you have have the hottest style by having the less effort on it. I think this is the perfect style if you’re not a morning person. It will save you a lot of time in the morning.
Now you do not really have to have the most defined face to style this look. As this pixie is slightly longer than the others. One downside that you might be facing is that this style has to be blow dried almost always. So if you are not the type of person to blow dry your hair often this must not be for you. It will also bring damage to your hair if you blow dry it often without care. So think twice n this one and be careful.
Lastly we have for you this voluminous hairstyle which is in between of a long bob and a pixie cut. It is definitely short with long front. The way it is styled is amazing. However not everyone can style it this way especially if you have thin hair. Th weekly blow dry may be good for a day for some people and for other it can last up to five.
As you can see all hairstyles have their up and down. This is why one has to consult with their hairstylist before getting a short haircut. These are some things you need to check with yourself before getting a short haircut:
- How often are you willing to wash your hair? – As with all those styling products one needs to have at least one shampoo and conditioner daily. As you can not go to bed with styling gel daily, this can lead to hair loss by time.
- How often are you able to get a blow dry ?
- Does your hair hold a style?
One shall also keep in mind and ask themselves if this style is forever or for a one time thing. Cause remember when you’ll be growing it out the hair might bug you. Probably you will have to find some head bands or hats to wear for a while especially if you decided to shave your hair. Another alternative will be in need because the hair will stick out for a while. Hair gels and waxes will not do the trick. Short hairstyles are fun, comfortable and can look very sexy. They are not for everyone for sure cause they can be a lot of work indeed. We like to think that the most spontaneous people are the one who are most likely to get a pixie or a shot hair cut.
