A pixie cut may be the shortest haircut out there, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with different hairstyles. Sure, you might be tempted to just blow dry it and go, but if you have a little bit more time, you can do more with it. If you’re in the mood for something edgy, you can create a quiff. If you want something more versatile but still carries oomph, try a messy textured pixie cut. Here’s how to create one.
9 Easy steps to style a messy textured pixie cut
Wash your hair
Every day, your hair and scalp get exposed to dirt, excess oil, and various chemicals from the styling products you use. Deep cleanse your hair and scalp by washing your beloved mane with TRESemmé Detox & Nourish Shampoo and TRESemmé Detox & Nourish Conditioner. These are enriched with natural ingredients such as ginger and green tea that help bring back lost nutrients to your hair.
No to heat damage
After washing your hair, spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your damp locks to protect them from heat. The spray will act as a barrier between your hair and heated styling tools.
Dry your hair
Set your blow dryer on low to medium heat. Then, finger comb your pixie cut as you blow dry your hair. Pull up some sections of your hair so the inner sections get dried, too.
Clip your hair
Divide your hair into front and back sections. Then, clip the back section so it stays in place as you style the front section.
Time to iron
Now, it’s time to use your flat iron. Take a section of hair from the unclipped part and clamp it in the flat iron. Hold the section of hair in a C-shape or S-shape as you clamp to create a textured look.
You can also lift the small sections of your hair and point them to different directions as you clamp them. The key here is to make the textured parts seem random to create a natural look.
Repeat the previous step until all sections of your pixie cut have been styled.
Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your hair to make your hairstyle last long. Style your hair using your fingers to create the final look that you want.
