On Trend This Winter – The Pixie Crop

Stylist Dana Tizzio gives Julie's hair a shorter, smoldering update

Your stylist will be using a razor to take out weight so that hair doesn’t look bulky, especially on thick textures. A razor cut gives short hair the texturized, edgier look this style demands. The results are cool and stylish with Julie’s small face and petite frame, but may be best to avoid for those with round face shapes. To keep the pixie in great shape, you’ll need to make an appointment for your next cut every 6 weeks – tops! In between, keep growth tidy with one trim/clean up, as recommended by your stylist.

On dry hair, try a dry shampoo powder like Shu Uemura’s “Volume Maker” (which comes in a stick for precision) to give your strands that gritty feeling. You need the foundation to help create and keep structure in your look. When hair needs more shine, and if your focus is on the ends or a more piecey hair texture, use a pomade like “Shape Paste” (also by Shu) to sculpt and define. For hair that’s perfectly undone (but is still styled at the same time, as we mentioned) Dana loves “Dry” invisible texturizing spray by Oribe. “It absorbs oil while giving hair just the right amount of volume and movement!”
