1. Slicked back pixie cut

Rock that sleek, like-a-boss look with slicked back short hair. You can do this both on a pixie cut or on a bob. Just brush your hair back until your hair part is no longer seen. Then, apply hair gel spritz hairspray to help hold your hairstyle. Wear this ‘do together with your corporate attire and make the blazer-and-slacks combo chic.

Editor’s tip: Spritz TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray on your hair to keep it brushed back all through out the day.

Make your ‘do more edgy by styling your pixie cut this way. Get a curling iron and curl your hair upwards to create a quiff. Then, apply hair wax or spritz hairspray on the quiff so it won’t fall flat. Complement your hair with a denim or leather jacket and get ready to rock and roll.

Editor’s tip: Guard against heat damage by spraying TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist on your hair before curling it.
