Why not opt into the long pixie?
Yes, yes, yes and a thousand times yes to feminine styles with plenty of personality like the pixie cut. The long pixie is a versatile cut that’ll give you a totally sexy femme fatale feel.
If you went for the pixie look a while back and you’re letting it grow out then, without even realizing it, you’re sporting the top trend of the moment. Although it’s not the first time we’ve discussed this type of cut with you, so we just want to remind you what it’s all about: the pixie consists of cutting a lot of hair off the sides and back and leaving the top section a little longer for added volume. The long pixie, the cut we’re focusing on in this article, is the same basic concept with the sides and bangs left a little longer too.
Both looks, although it may not seem that way, are both feminine and stylish, ideal for any situation and, what’s more important, for any face shape. The key to the long pixie is in the bangs. So if the face shape is round, then the bangs should be long and to one side to add visual length. If, on the other hand, the face shape is long, then we should keep the bangs shorter and combed forwards.
How to style a long pixie
Who said that short hair was boring? This style allows many variations so your hairstyle can be adapted to suit any occasion. And here are some ideas!
Ideal for rockers! Take the bangs and backcomb a little then brush back and apply Extreme Lac from the Pro·Line range to give long-lasting hold to your pompadour style. Remember that this hairspray can be used from a 360º angle allowing you to work with maximum freedom of movement.
The laid back Pixie
Perfect for everyday and more informal events. The secret to this look is in texture. You can use our mattifying Volume Dust from the Pro·Line range to give the upper section added texture and volume without stickiness. Apply the dust to the roots and use your fingers to shape and mold.
Slick with side part
A femme fatale look we just love. With hair wet, create a well-defined side part and apply a little Wet Gel Rock from the Pro·Line range on the side of your bangs. Comb to the side and there you have it: elegant, sophisticated with oodles of glamour.
Whichever style you choose, the pixie is a haircut that requires lots of upkeep if you want it to look good. In this case, the secret is in volume. So if your hair is very fine or straight, we recommend boosting volume with volumizing styling products and sticking to a hair care routine that focuses on volume, with this protein shampoo and balsam. Their hydrolyzed proteins act on the hair, providing a result that protects and enhances shine, manageability and body.
