Your hair can be as short as half an inch to about 3 to 4 inches or so, and can be worn straight up like spikes or flat against your head. The hair cut should be left to a professional hair stylist.
Although this style is easy to maintain it may not be for every woman. You must be very comfortable with your features to go this short, as your hair will not be covering any thing you may perceive as a flaw or imperfection.
The wonderful thing about the this hair style is that it will save you both time and money. You will save on your electricity bill since you won’t need to use a hair dryer. You will save money on your cosmetic bill because you will only need to use a small amount of shampoo and conditioner is usually not needed. And if your hair needs a little control you will only need a little styling gel or hair spray. That’s another big savings. Of course, the best saving of all will be the time and effort needed to manage and maintain this very short hair style. The only other cost and time need for this hair style will be the monthly trips to the hair stylist to keep the length you want.
The pixie hair style truly is a “wash and go” hair style!
When you wear the pixie hair style it truly becomes all about your face, since there is little hair to take the focus away from it. This is the reason you will need to pay special attention to your makeup. Too much will stand out as much as too little. Pick a perfect palette for your skin tone when using foundation, blush and eye shadow. Subtle colors that don’t make you look too “made up” will work best. And please, don’t forget your eyes. Keep your eyeliner narrow and smooth and use good mascara with an eyelash curler. And of course, as with anyone using foundation, but even more important for the pixie hair style wearer, be sure that it is blended well around your hairline and under your chin, as your hair will not be covering up any of these areas.
