Give a classic pixie cut a more casual take by getting a fringe. Add texture to your hair by applying hair wax. This hair product can also help you style wispy bangs to make your pixie hairstyle look more relaxed.

Editor’s tip: When styling pixie cuts, spritz TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax on your palms or fingers. Then, scrunch your hair. This will give you more control when styling and keep you from putting too much product on your hair.

4. Deep side part with undercut

Add softness and volume to an undercut by brushing your hair towards one side. Use a fine tail comb to define a side part and make your hair look smooth and sleek. With this ‘do, you can rock a corporate chic look with your slacks and blazer, then simply switch to a sexy outfit when you’re ready to party!

Editor’s tip: To achieve this polished look, keep brushed up hair looking impeccable all day long with TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairspray.

Pull off this scene-stealing look with a bleached undercut. Let your naturally dark hair grow out and peek in your undercut to accentuate the vivid contrast in color and length. Add wispy bangs for a touch of softness. Make sure to protect colored hair and maintain its vibrant color by using hair products developed for color-treated hair.

6. Textured short pixie cut

“Aren’t pixie cuts already short?” You might ask. And the answer is yes, but this type of pixie cut looks short than the other types because of its short sides, back, and top. No fringe or any semblance of that. Keep your short pixie cut from looking flat and drab by spritzing hair wax or sea salt spray, then shaking up your strands afterward using your fingers.

7. Faded Sides

There’s no limit to your imagination when it comes to styling your hair, which means you can give it the faded sides hairstyle if you want to! Keep the top part of your hair long, so that you can continue to style it any way you want. You can style it slicked back, or comb it to one side. Whichever way you choose, this hair is really going to slay.

Editor’s tip: Styling this hair will benefit from VO5 Mega Hold Gel Spray because it lets your hair keep its shape for a long time. One application is all you need and you can enjoy the freedom to move all day without worrying about your hair getting messed up.
