The messy pixie: a boy's cut for rock chic

A little boy's haircut, it may be. But, like most little boys, it's definitely not well-behaved - preferring the unkempt way of life. This messy, light and rock n'roll pixie is a breath of fresh air for short hair. Hair stylists often pull up long sections of tousled locks, as if a summer breeze just wafted through.

The messy pixie: windswept wonder woman

To avoid your look appearing too severe or too masculine, style your short cut into a messy pixie. Spontaneous yet elegant, this hair-raising, "just out of bed" style discreetly emphasizes your forehead, neck and ears. It's no surprise women everywhere want this windswept look in their lives!

Don't trust angels...

Beneath its sensible, angelic appearance, the androgynous pixie cut has its own unique personality. Impish, mischievous and playful, this look also has a childlike beauty to it. Oval, square and round faces, and thin to medium hair, will easily transition into this style - recapturing their inner child in a salon!

Short manes still need softness

Whatever the color of your hair, those delicate locks which sweep along the contours of your face require delicate and expert reinforcement. The keys tips for healthy, happy hair are: avoid using a comb, don't over-heat with the blow dryer, and less is more- just a small amount of Density Material will certainly do the trick!
