A long pixie cut with bangs is an edgy, voluminous crop with an extended length longer than a classic pixie. The hair is cut with tapered layers to form a shape that flatters a woman’s face shape.
Stylist and salon owner Gretel Palacios-Austin of Pacifica, CA gives her view on this look.
“A long pixie cut hairstyle is great for ladies who don’t want a lot of fuss styling their locks. All you need is a bit of cream paste and a run-through with your finger, then you’re ready for the day,” she states.
Always consider your hair texture when deciding the type of pixie you want to get. Don’t opt for styles with straight hair when you have a curly or wavy texture and vice versa.
Now, if you have sleek tresses, be mindful of your preferred length. Palacios-Austin notes that “straight hair tends to stick out when cut very short.”
When looking for the perfect stylist, find one who has experience in cutting short hair. Ask about the maintenance and for some tips in styling it.
The ultimate rule in keeping its look sassy is to commit to the style. Use the right product and keep up with your salon appointment.
Palacios-Austin suggests a 5-6 weeks interim between the trims. “Pixies won’t work for some ladies who only visit the salon once or twice a year,” she adds.
