Most people think that after you take the big plunge and chop off your coveted locks that you’re done with taking care of your pixie. Often people grow tired of the look or just really don’t know how to really wear it. Pixie Cuts are a great look that only a select few can wear due to a few key factors, one being the jaw line. However we will not get into that today; today we will talk about maintenance of your cut. It’s not hard only a few easy steps to keep your style fresh and manageable.
Rule #1: Go Easy on product
This is a no brainer, since your hair is shorter your natural oils reach the ends of your hair faster so you won’t need to moisturize your hair so often. Also the product won’t have much room to spread your best bet is to apply a dime sized amount and rub it between your hands. Then rub it from root to tip, if you’re using a pomade, go very easy. Apply a very light coating onto the hair then brush into place, gradually build upon it if more is needed.
Rule#2: Go Easy on the Flat Iron
Even I have this problem, you want the style so perfect you end up applying more heat the next thing you know you have fried frizzy hair. To end (or minimize) your heat usage wrap your hair loosely at night,it’ll put an end to the dents and bumps you get in the back of your head and your hair will have more body.
Rule#3: Wash more
Like I said in Rule #1, the natural oils in your hair reach your ends faster in addition to any type of moisturizers that you use outside of that. That’s a lot of build up, especially if you moisturize often. Solution? Wash your hair more frequently. Only you can judge how often your hair needs to be washed but avoid daily washing once a week should be the most you wash your hair. Any more than that you’re stripping your hair of moisture. If you feel as if you need to wash your hair daily, try rinsing it with a conditioner to get that clean feel.
Rule #4: Monthly Cuts
Since your hair only grows about an inch a month you should get your hair cut about every 4 weeks to keep your styling in place. I know this may sound like a lot of work but it’s worth it in the long run. If you can’t afford the salon, try a beauty school they’re cheaper and you’ll get the same results. But always go to the salon first to figure out the cut and style that flatters your face and you can manage, then go to the beauty school just for touch ups.
Pixie cuts are a fun way to change up your style and look, it’s a very unique look that not many people can pull off effortlessly.With a little maintenance and patience this can be a very enjoyable look for anyone who dares to try it!
