A pixie cut is a dramatic style that is chic on its own. It’s relatively low maintenance, since it dries quickly after showering, and a little bit of blow-drying is enough to keep them well-behaved.
But let’s face it. There isn’t much that you can do with short hair aside from spiking it up with gel, laying it flat, or teasing it up a bit. So, if you ever find yourself bored with your hair, you can use hair accessories for that extra pop of color. We bring you four great ways on how to accessorize a pixie cut!
4 Hair Tricks on How to Accessorize a Pixie Cut
1. Ribbon headwrap
A ribbon, when long and wide enough, can be used as a head wrap. Yes, it sounds very ’90s, but it’s actually coming back in style this. Ribbons come in a wide range of designs, so you can accessorize accordingly based on your clothes. Some even come with a thin wire inside for that oversized retro ribbon look.
2. Ribbon with hair pins
Pin little clips on the side to trap stray hairs, pull back your bangs, and keep your hair in place. If your hair is unruly, you can set it with some hairspray or hair wax. We recommend TONI & GUY High Definition Spray Wax for added texture. Just spray, pin, and you’re ready to go!
3. Thin headband
Everyone has one in their vanity table for emergencies or bad hair days. Now that your hair is short, you can bring out this piece and wear it on casual days or even in the gym. It sure beats hair sticking to your face on a hot day, right? You can even wear it right before your crown area for that vintage beehive effect.
4. Fabric headband
With the rising trend of athleisure attire, fabric headbands aren’t just for gym sessions. These elastic bands make for cute accessories. Just wear like you would a thin headband with your bangs swept to the side. Just blowdry, set it with TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray, place your hairpiece, and you’re done! It’ will give you an unobstructed view of your surroundings while looking so chic.
Short hair isn’t necessarily boring. With all the hair accessories available in the market, the possibilities are endless when it comes to adding pizzazz to your dramatic pixie cut.
