A long pixie cut for full (or chubby) faces is a short crop with layers that helps the face shape appear slimmer. The cut creates chic styles that are easy to achieve and will attract people’s attention!
Hair artist Matthew Benson of Santa Rosa, CA has a nifty tip for plus-size beauties who want to try pixies or lixies. He states, “Add subtle layers or side bangs to give the illusion of a more diamond face shape. This can be slimming and will make it feel more soft and beautiful.”
Avoid blunt lines or trimmed edges for a much feminine finish. The hair must hug the head laying forward to prevent creating that awful “bump” effect when styling the top.
If considering a longer pixie cut, understand that it requires more maintenance. “Be ready to get your hair cut every 4-8 weeks,” says Benson.
The key to a striking short haircut lies in your chosen stylist. Make sure they’re comfortable doing a long pixie cut for fuller face shapes like yours. If they think that your preferred look is a bad idea, consider a second opinion.
