The Bouncy Curled Pixie Cut


You CAN curl a pixie cut and a pixie cut wig. One of the best products for styling is Shaping Creme. Run fingers through hair with Shaping Creme product to get the best hold out of these short locks. Then take a medium-sized curling iron and get as close as you can to the root and wrap hair around the rod. The hair shouldn’t make it all the way around—just plan on getting it halfway. Having the locks be in the three-inch sections will deliver a look that doesn’t seem over-done. Tousle hair gently.


The Choppy Layered Pixie Cut


Choppy layers are back in action after a short break in the 2000’s. This quintessential 1990’s hair trend is fun and flirty. To achieve the choppy layered pixie cut, once again use one of the best products for styling—Shaping Creme. Start out with a dime size amount to work through strands. Dry or damp hair is fine. Then bunch hair with hands at random around the piece. Afterwards, you can twirl hair around your fingers to make a more “piecey” look. Don’t be shy either—the choppier the look, the better!


The Sleek and Swooped Pixie Cut


The sleek and swooped pixie cut is a favorite these days. Starlets like Rhianna, Scarlett Johannsen, and Miley Cyrus are sporting this style. This haircut might mean a trip to a hairstylist to change the pixie cut wig into something more asymmetrical. However, you can have a symmetrical cut and still do the sleek and swooped style. Consulting a hair stylist before touching your wig with scissors is necessary—the hair doesn’t grow back and, especially for a pixie cut wig, you don’t want to get too close to the cap.


When you have the right cut, proportions, and length for the pixie cut wig, work Shaping Creme through the hair. Part the hair very deeply over to one side and separate hair. If you have bangs on the pixie cut wig, the bangs can hang over the brow bone for a face-framing look. Tucking the front pieces behind the ear—if you can—is also another great option. The sleek and swooped pixie cut is a refreshingly modern hairstyle.


The Takeaway


These ways to style a pixie cut can make your every day look different and modern. If you ever wondered what you would look like with short hair, a pixie cut wig might be the solution you need. Cutting off hair that dramatically is a big committment. If you beat the odds or are going through a treatment that causes hair loss, using a pixie cut wig while waiting for hair to grow back is an excellent choice for that transition.
