Pixie with highlights is a short haircut with color streaks for added volume. Stylish and easy to do, this hairstyle is a great fashion accessory to wear every day!
Sylvie Prυd’Homme, an experienced stylist based in Toronto, Canada, confirms the versatility of the pixie. She notes: “The haircut only requires care and consideration. It can look soft and romantic, bold and daring, and something in between!”
Head and face shape, hair growth line, hair type and texture are factors to consider. Talk to a short hair specialist who will give you a great haircut and teach you how to properly maintain your style.
Blonde hair looks good in a pixie only if it is done in very thin sections. Otherwise, they can look like horrible tiger stripes on a short haircut.
If you have existing highlights but want to do a pixie, do a shadow cut to soften the previous color.
If you have a pixie hairstyle and want deeper highlights, get a balayage cut for a more natural effect. Another option for blondes is a fυll pre-lightening service.
Pixie haircuts require regular styling every four to six weeks. “If you don’t have the opportunity to visit the salon regularly, a longer length is more appropriate,” says Pröd’Homme.
