How to Style a Pixie Cut in 10 Different Ways

The idea that a small haircut cannot be further styled is wrong as not only can you adjust their texture, but also add volume. So, if you are willing to chop off your big bangs and locks, but taking a backseat in fear of lack of styling options, here are some quick solutions.

3 Styling Tips for Pixie Cut

  • Apply texturizing products to help your hair stay frizz-free and textured.
  • Use hair mousse to add volume to your short hair. You have to blow dry your hair afterward and then you can either comb or run fingers softly through the hair for a voluminous effect.
  • Don’t use too much hair products as they might be overpowering the natural look of your pixie cut.

Looks Good On – Women with square or diamond faces, as this hairstyle highlights their sharp features.

How To Do It

  • Dampen or wet your hair or apply hair cream or gel (opting for the latter will keep the texture intact for longer).
  • Then either make a simple parting on your preferable side or go for back brushing.

If you have a long pixie cut and you don’t want the bangs to fall on your forehead then this is a good idea, especially to get a formal appearance.
