Here’s an easy way to style your freshly washed pixie cut. First, part your hair deeply on one side. Then, brush your hair backward (without getting rid of your hair part) while blow-drying it to give your hair a bit of volume. Put your blow-dryer on a low or medium heat setting to minimize hair damage.

When your hair has dried, get a hair straightener and iron the tips of your hair inward to create inverted U-shapes. Finish by spritzing hairspray all over your hair to make your hairstyle last long.

Remove the bobby pins and hair rollers and gently brush your curls to style them. Finish with generous spritzes of your favorite hairspray to seal the look and make your hair sleek. Now that’s what glam is about!

This hairstyle looks less formal but it’s just as chic as other wet look hairstyles. And it’s also super easy! Just spritz hairspray on the upper half section of your hair for a slicked-back look and let the rest of your hair fall freely. If you have naturally wavy hair, welcome the additional texture and movement.
