Hair Tutorial: Pixie Cut

Hair Tutorial: Pixie Cut

You don’t have to be an elf to conjure up this favourite hairstyle. The pixie (a term for a mythical creature) is quick to do – simply cut the hair really short... Stop! In fact the pixie requires a special cutting technique: The hair is cut very short on the sides, at the back and down to the neck, but the top hair can be up to ten centimetres long. This makes the hairstyle very changeable and a wide variety of looks can be created depending on the styling. For example the timeless favourite of stars, the classic pixie. We show you how in just a few steps:

  • Hair Tutorial: Pixie Cut

    Step 1

    Start with freshly washed hair. Apply styling spray for extra volume.

    Step 2

    Now blow dry your hair against the direction of growth and swirls. Use a Denman brush (with plastic bristles and rubber cushion) which is particularly well suited for blow drying short haircuts.

    Step 3

    When your hair is almost dry, loosen up the pixie with your fingers while continuing to blow dry. This adds volume. After blow drying you can also add volumising powder for extra volume.

    For an attractive texture, trendy styling and proper hold, selectively work hair wax into the tips. Hint: Twirl the strands while doing so.
