Pixie with spikes
This is an edgy and chic super short pixie haircut. The fringes are always kept extremely short along with textured ends. This same texture is maintained through the whole haircut which creating a blending effect and makes the overall look interesting. Some of the top hairs are spiked to create a cool, trendy style.
Use a comb or your fingers to arrange the hair perfectly into place right after shower. Pull the fringes to the front; then lightly brush them to the side. Put your hair at the front around temples, and then smoothen the remaining hair back and towards the nape. After you have arranged and organized your hair, you can use a blow dryer or let your hair dry naturally. Once your hair is completely dry, use your favorite styling products for polishing off the edges or spiking up the tops. You can use soy paste or soy hairspray to take care of your locks.
As this haircut is quite edgy, women having hard-angled faces with squarer lines should not sport this pixie haircut style. Women having slightly wavy or straight hair with medium thickness are ideally suited for this haircut.
The razored edge short pixie cut is a soft, feminine style with a bit of an edge. It is characterised by ragged edges that have long wispy fringes that give way to razored side burns. Hair along the wispy edges end around the ears with feathered nape.
Use fingers to bring the fringes to the sides, and then rough them up with our hands while blow drying. The final look has to be a bit messy, so you don’t need perfect blow drying skills. After the hair gets dry, use wax or pomade and use them in the fringes and sideburns to give a piercing look. Rough up your hair crown with more of the product.
The style is best suited for women with heart-shaped faces.
