How to get the perfect pixie cut

Your rating: None
Pixie cuts are very on trend but it is important to get it right, as the hair is quite short it can be hard to cover any mistakes! When styling I would avoid putting in any type of parting.
Try drying the hair dry in one direction then in the opposite, this will give you a sleeker look and the hair will fall in the way it has been cut.
Avoid using any brushes as it will give it too much volume and will create a rounded blow dry which is not what you want!
To finish use a wax with a bit of shine; start by rubbing a small amount about the size of a 20p in your hands and then work it into the roots of your hair.
Use what is left to style the rest, try to avoid making your hair too spiky.
