Pixie cuts have been trending for a while and it's easy to see why. They suit a whole range of different face shapes and can be worn in a lot of different ways. Teamed with bangs, a pixie is really cute and can be styled with different texture and sculpted to look however you want it to. In short, pixies and bangs go together like Ben & Jerry.

So, what should you be doing when styling this haircut?


Depending on your mood, the day of the week, the weather... you may want to switch up your style so it looks a little different than yesterday. So, first things first, choose your 'do. There are plenty to consider, including tousled, piecey, smooth, wispy, brushed back... it's all up to you!

Little by little

Whatever style you go for, apply your product sparingly. The last thing you want to do is overload your hair. If you want a tousled look, for example, start by running a very small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through your bangs then add more as needed.

Use your hands

This may seem a little obvious but it's worth pointing out that you really don't need to worry about fancy styling tools, just use your hands! Keep a comb close by to help with neat and tidy styles, and use your hands for most of the sculpting and tousling.

Move your part around

It's a well-known fact that changing your part can totally transform your hairstyle. Switch sides every now and then to see where your bangs look best, and to find out in which direction you should be sweeping them! In general, if it feels like a good fit, it probably is.

Here today, gone tomorrow

Bangs don't have to be a permanent fixture. You can use them to whip up some serious volume with a pompadour or a swept-back beehive, for example. To build height from the get go, apply some Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse then blow-dry with your head flipped upside down.


For added detail, why not try a headband or headscarf? Either can be used to both showcase and hide your bangs as desired.

Finally, don't be afraid to mix it up a little, it's all about wearing your hair, your way!
