Celebrity Pixie Cuts That’ll Make You Take the Plunge
There comes a time in every woman’s life where she contemplates cutting all her hair off. After a breakup, before a new job, at the start of a hot summer —we've all been there. And, while sometimes we're talked off the ledge, others we push forward, make the appointment, and realize it's the best decision ever. But does the same idea apply to getting a pixie haircut?
If you’re questioning whether or not the short snip will flatter you, you’re in luck. According to Marilisa Sears, the artistic director at Marc Anthony True Professional, “As long as you’re tweaking the cut according to your overall face shape, hair texture, and profile,” you’re in the green. The biggest thing is that, regardless of your face shape (or your nerves), you work with an experienced stylist to ensure the result is right for you.
In addition to finding the right pro to bring your look to life, celebrity hairstylist Jessica Elbaum suggests stocking up on products to help manage and maintain your not-so-low-maintenance cut. She recommends a blow dryer and flat iron so that you can style it daily, as bedhead will try to ruin your look on the reg. In addition to basic styling, both Sears and Elbaum swear by a styling spray to help minimize frizz and keep texture on lock. Where Sears loves the Marc Anthony True Professional Bye.Bye Frizz Humidity Shield Hairspray($9) for its ability to repel humidity while giving hair a touchable hold, Elbaum is all about the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray($46).
