How to choose the pixie cutting style according to the shape of your face
If you’re willing to maintain the shape of your pixie cut by visiting your stylist every three months, let’s move on to the most important thing, which is deciding which pixie cut style is right for you, taking into account the shape of your face.
Pixie cut for oval faces.
If you have this face shape, any pixie style will look good, as your features are balanced. You can choose a super short pixie, even with a small fringe, or some looser, messier strands.
Basically, you’re one of the lucky ones, because any short haircut will look good on you.
Pixie cut for long faces.
In this case, I recommend you to reduce the volume of the pixie cut on the top of the head. Basically, you should reduce everything that adds volume.
You can choose a pixie cut with some longer strands in the fringe, reaching the eyebrows, which will give the illusion of a smaller forehead and balance the characteristics of your face.
Pixie cut for heart-shaped faces.
In this case, the idea is that the pixie cut will bring out your cheekbones. How do you do that?
With a pixie cut with some longer strands on the sides, and leaving the length of the back of your head as short as possible, so you can create a good balance.
Pixie cut for round faces.
A pixie cut can make your face look longer, rather than round.
In this case, you should add some volume to the top, while keeping the length of the sides. You can also add some movement to your hair, with a few short strands, or by playing with a bold asymmetry.
Pixie cut for square faces.
In this case, the pixie cut should blur the angular lines of your face. Dare to play with the different lengths in some locks and, then, try different hairstyles with waves.
Pixie cut for diamond-shaped faces.
This is one of the most interesting shapes because, in addition to having an angular structure, the chin is thinner and more pointed.
To create an effect of natural balance of the features, you should highlight your cheekbones, while playing with the lines of your face. Therefore, in this case, it is best to encourage an asymmetrical and layered pixie cut, as this will add volume to the top, while blurring the lines on the sides.
You can also choose to play with different lengths, which will help break up the strong contours of your face.
Other things to consider when choosing a pixie cut
Once you know which pixie-cutting style is right for you, it’s time to tackle other issues.
For example, the hairstyle. Although short hair is practical and can save you many hours of styling, there’s also another reality, which is hair texture.
- Do you have thick, curly or frizz-prone hair?
If the answer is yes, don’t be discouraged. It doesn’t mean a pixie cut isn’t for you, but you should be prepared to work harder on your hair to get the style you want.
If your hair is unruly or very frizzy, you may want to get a keratin treatment first to make it easier to style.
- Are you willing to visit the salon every three months?
- Oh, I forgot! Your deciding on a pixie cut must also cover your make-up. Why? Because a pixie cut will draw all eyes to your face.
So, you should keep your skin smooth and not too shiny, with a uniform, matte complexion. Then, instead of a moisturizer for the face, you should use a mattifying cream, which will hide all the imperfections of the skin.
It is also a good idea to avoid exaggerated shadows on your eyelids and to choose deeper eye liner.
As for the lips, they can also gain importance. Play with orange, coral and red tones, which will definitely attract all eyes.
- Wearing short hair with a pixie cut is not for everyone. Basically, because it’s one of the boldest cuts around, and your personality plays a big part in that.
- The good news is that you can find a pixie hairstyle that favors the shape of your face, whether it’s long, round, diamond-shaped or heart-shaped.
- Once you make the first step, that is, you make the decision, look for pictures with the styles you like the most, find a stylist who understands your wishes perfectly and commit yourself to maintenance.
After all, the world is for the boldest, don’t you think?
