They say “A woman who cut her hair is about to change her life” and if, you too, want to start newly, what’s better than to sport a new, bold and sexy haircut?
But then again, if you have fine tresses, you might always be in a dilemma whether a short haircut, like a pixie cut, would be the best choice for your hair type or not.
Do not worry anymore because in this article we have talked about every little aspect you should know about before going for a pixie in your fine manes.
So, without wasting more time, let’s start.
Is a Pixie Cut Really Good for Fine Hair?
Well, if you want to chop off your fine locks then we would definitely say that pixie is just the right cut for you. That’s because this particular hair cut not only adds texture and layers in your manes but at the same time also make them look fuller and voluminous (which is rare characteristics for fine, flat hair locks). Another aspect you must know is that when you have such short manes, you need to put on fewer products in them which will help them to be healthier as we know fine hairs are super sensitive and the less is more for this hair type.
Disadvantages of a Pixie Cut on Fine Hair
After reading all those great benefits of pixie cut on your fine/thin manes, you might be a bit awestruck to learn that this sexy style also has a few drawbacks.
Let’s talk about the disadvantages so that your decision about chopping your manes becomes easier.
Best Pixie Cut Style Ideas for Fine Hair
Now let’s talk about how you can style your pixie manes so that you can enjoy versatile styles every day.
Voluminous, Miranda Priestly Hairs
Even though this short haircut already adds texture and volume to your fine, flat tresses, you still might want to add a bit more volume to rock a Miranda Priestly vibe and to do so, you will only need a narrow plated flat iron (such as this Bed Head Pixie 1/2″ Straightener). We always suggest using low heat settings to straight fine or thin hair.
Start off by taking a section of your hair from the crown and place it in between the blazing hot plates of the straightener. Now, flip it inward and hold the iron in this position for 2-3 seconds before pulling it downwards. Repeat this for the rest of the hairs on the crown and finish off by spritzing some holding spray like this L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray to keep the style in place for all day long.
Classic Sleek Look
This is just the hairdo you would want to flaunt at any formal dinner or evening party. For this look, apply an adequate amount of styling gel to your pixie and comb it with a fine-tooth comb with a side part (or maybe backcomb). Tuck the ends behind your ears and voila! You have a very sleek yet formal look.
We prefer this R+Co Wall Street Strong Hold Gel because of its stronghold yet sleek results.
