How to look stunning if you have a pixie cut

If you’ve got a pixie cut, you’re in luck. This style is one of the most flattering haircuts for every face shape, so no matter what kind of face you have—round, oval or square—you’ll look gorgeous with this new do. Here’s how to pull off a pixie cut:

Ask your stylist for layers so that it looks more natural and doesn’t stick out from the top like an awkward Mohawk.

If you have curly hair, ask them to give it a little curl so that it looks less harsh on your head and more feminine.

If you want bangs (and who wouldn’t?), try asking them if they can put some side bangs in there instead of blunt ones at the front. That way there will be more variety in styling options because even though all sides are short, there will still be different textures on each side (and thus different ways of styling!).

Look stunning with a bold red hue

Red is the most common hair color, and it can be a great way to stand out from the crowd. Red hair is not just for the winter months either! You can get all kinds of shades, from fiery copper or deep burgundy to strawberry blonde with hints of crimson. If you want to really express your personality, try an edgy style like shaved pieces or a bold undercut.

You’re not limited by what’s in fashion either—redheads have been around since ancient times, so there are plenty of examples of gorgeous redheaded women throughout history (and present day). If you have dark eyes and pale skin like Emma Stone or Amy Adams did in their younger days, go all out with bright crimson streaks that pop against your complexion. Or if you have lighter features like Nicole Kidman’s washed-out blonde strands? Try adding some rich cherry tones around the face instead!

Use your bangs to create eyebrow-grazing lines

Bangs are an easy way to add a new twist or style to your hair. The best part is that they can be customized depending on how you want them to look: straight, wavy or curly.

To get the bangs in this picture, I used my fingers and gently pulled strands of hair at an angle towards my face. That’s all there is too it!

Opt for healthy and bright hair color

When you’re ready to make a change, whether it’s from long hair to short or from brunette to blonde, be sure that the color is healthy and bright. A good hairstylist will be able to help you choose a hair color that suits your skin tone and complements your personality. Think about how much time and money you’ll spend maintaining the new look before making any final decisions.

You may want to consider what colors complement certain wardrobe items; if so, talk with your stylist about finding a shade that works well with most of the clothes in your closet (and those coming out next season). You can also take this opportunity to highlight something special about yourself: maybe it’s an upcoming vacation or even just the fact that life has been treating you well lately!

Finally, think about how this new style will play into how others perceive who you are as an individual—and whether it fits into what they already believe about who they know as “you.”

Try a cool ashy blonde shade

Before you get started, be sure to read and follow the instructions on the bottles of color remover, shampoo and conditioner.

Wash your hair with cold water.

Use a clarifying shampoo to remove any leftover residue from the color remover.

Spice up your pixie with hair extensions

Hair extensions are a great way to add volume and length, especially for an undercut. They’re easy to apply and remove with clips, combs or tape. And they’re also versatile: you can use them to create any hairstyle you want!

If you have some hair loss that’s bothering you, hair extensions can help cover it up while also giving your pixie more style.

You can totally transform your hairstyles with very few steps.

So you’ve decided to make a change, but you aren’t sure what direction to go in. You could do something drastic like shave your head or even dye it purple. While both of those decisions have their appeal, they’re also pretty permanent. If you’re not ready for such an extreme makeover yet, there are other ways to alter how people perceive your appearance without making any major changes to the way your hair looks overall.

Here are some tips for getting started:

Get a pixie cut! It’s easy to maintain and can be modified with wigs or extensions if needed.

Change up your color—you don’t have to do it all at once either! Try adding highlights or going darker when things start looking duller than usual. Feel free also try different styles like balayage when things get boring again down the road too by just adding one strand at a time until each section has been touched up separately so no one notices anything different about them individually except maybe their new fresh look 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 !!!!!!


Hair transformations are not limited to your appearance. They can also change the way you feel about yourself and make you look more confident! We hope these ideas will help you achieve your next hairstyle goal and feel great about it.
