When you get pixie cut, there are a lot of factors to consider. Aside from the game changing powers of such a short hairstyle, your hair's natural texture, cowlicks, and how much styling time you want to devote to your hair are all things to think about.

A long, side-swept pixie cut could be the best place to start because with some extra length, there generally tends to be more room to move. This can be really handy if your hair has a natural wave or curls. You have more styling options when you keep the length on top, too.

Your hair, your way

Be the boss of your own hairstyle by styling it exactly how you want it. A long pixie is really the best of both worlds because there's enough hair to play with but not so much that you'll have to spend loads of time in front of a mirror.

1/ Piecey

To create some subtle strand separation, apply a very small amount of L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through your hair, taking care not to apply too much. Ruffle and muss your hair with your hands, then shape it as desired.

2/ Tousled

For a laid back, tousled texture, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout and scrunch. You can dry it in twisted sections on a medium heat setting or pin the twists against your head and let them dry naturally. Either way, shake your fingers through them once dried and shape with a little Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to finish.

Are you feeling brave enough for a side-swept pixie of your own?
