If want to get a short hairstyle, a messy, voluminous pixie cut is a great option. There's plenty of length on top which allows for all kinds of different styles, from sleek side parts to voluminous pomps. We love this laid back, textured look for everyday wear. It's light and airy, and it looks great with both daytime and evening makeup.

This cute crop is relatively easy to maintain, requiring only a monthly trim to keep it in shape and prevent the bangs from falling into your eyes.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with towel dried hair, scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse evenly throughout.

Step 2
Rough dry your hair with your blowdryer to create body and texture.

Step 3
Once dried, warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands to emulsify it and work the gum into your hair, focusing on the longer strands on top.

Step 4
Scrunch and tousle the hair with your hands to keep building texture. Add more gum as needed, but take care not to overdo it.

Step 5
Loosely rake your hair into place with your hands for an airy, windswept finish.

Alternative styling

When you want something more polished, for a dramatic night out look for example, all you need to do is sweep your hair back with a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel and a wide-tooth comb.
