If you're looking for a solution to the scarf-induced winter hair matting, a short cut might be the best option. While there are plenty of things you can do to salvage longer locks, the truth is that it's just easier with a shorter style. So, how about this choppy, piecey pixie?

All about those bangs

With a pixie cut, bangs often come with the territory and, with a fairly straight, geometric cut like this one, they're an integral feature. Kept considerably shorter than the rest of the hair, this short fringe helps to showcase the eyes beautifully.

Get the look

Creating the perfect piecey finish couldn't be easier. All you need to do is warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands then work it through the ends of your hair.

Twist and tousle individual sections, then finger-comb them to create subtle strand separation. Shape as desired with your hands then complete the look with hairspray.

More reasons to go short

Short hair is generally easier to deal with during the colder months. It fits under hats and hoods, scarves don't bother it, and fixing any weather-related chaos only takes a minute thanks to flexible hold products.

As if that wasn't enough, short hair dries faster, too, so you don't have to worry about squeezing in a lengthy blowout before you leave home in the morning!

What do you think? Will you try a short cut this winter?
