  • Festive Hairstyles – The Glamorous Pixie

    Ginnifer Goodwin (see the photo above) dressed up her trendy short pixie by styling the slightly longer top hair into fringes across her forehead. This simple short pixie does not need fancy twirls to show style and have appeal. Add a little charm and raise your glass to your guests. It does not get better than that!

  • Styling Instructions for the Pixie with Long Full Fringes:

    Distribute some hair gel on your fingers. Then use your fingers to style the covering hair forward and across your forehead. Extra gloss hairspray gives the pixie with fringes its lustre and elegance.

  • Styling Instructions for the Sleek Short Hairstyle:

    Apply heat protectant into your towel-dry hair and comb all your hair straight down and straight over the forehead from the crown of your head. Straighten your hair by blow-drying it while pulling it over a small round brush. Use a flat iron if you want to reduce the hair volume. Extra-gloss hairspray provides extra shine.

  • Styling Instructions for the Short Hairstyles with Beach Waves:

    Work a tennis ball-sized dollop of volumising mousse through your towel-dry hair and blow-dry it. Apply heat protectant spray before using a curling iron to style waves of different sizes. Finally apply volumising powder to the root portion of your hair to add as much volume as possible.
