If you've taken the plunge to cut off your hair for something a little edgier or stylish such as a pixie cut, then you're very brave. Pixie cuts are very cute and versatile, although you don't have a lot of hair to work with, there are a number of ways to style your hair from a casual look to something more elegant. See below for tips on how to style your pixie cut.
For a casual look without a lot of styling, simply blow dry your hair, brushing it out with a round brush or a flat brush, blowing it in different directions for some volume. Then part it any you you prefer.Use paste or wax to help hold it in place. To use the paste or wax, add a small amount to the palm of your hand, then run it through your hair. Try to keep it off of the roots to prevent it from looking greasy at your roots.
Beach Wave Look
Add some waves to your pixie using a small barrel curling iron, or a flat iron. If using a flat iron, pull a small section of hair, then put it in the flat iron. Turn the flat iron a full 180 degrees, then let it heat up for just a few seconds. This will give you just a slight wave to your hair. If all you can curl is the front section of your hair, that's fine. It's provide just enough waves to your hair for an entirely different look.
Pulled Back Look
Pull back your bangs either into a twist, or braided. To twist, simply grab two sections of hair, then twist. Grab sections and twist them as you move down the side of your hairline, or higher up on your head (depending on where you want your twist). Then pin your hair into place using bobby pins. You can also braid a section of your bangs, or french braid your bangs, then pin them into place.
For a wedding or more elegant affair, use a beaded or jeweled headband to pull your hair back. You can also add some waves, allowing your bangs to hang out, then place the headband in the center of your head. Adding some pomade or paste to give your hair a sleek look can also give your pixie some added elegance as well. Use a jeweled bobby pin or other type of clip can also give your hair some glam.
