Up Tight and Outta Sight
From adorable Halle Berry to Seductive Charlize Theron–pixies are big business right now, and there is nothing “same old” about these clever cuts. When you hit the salon, ask the stylist for a choppy pixie with lots of layers, and pieces that are extra long and hug your neck in the back. With a little bit of texturizer and a nice medium flex spray, you’re set for any party. Both androgynous and sexy at the same time, the messy pixie is top style, magnified. Get some deconstructing gum for individually styling random hair chunks to scrunch and mess up. Volume injecting mousse can be used to give you a blown-into-tomorrow look.
