2008 Hairstyles The Pixie Cut

Mar 2, 2008
The pixie, a hairstyle characterized by its very short length and layering along the neckline, typically with longer layers extending towards the nape of the neck, is making a comeback in 2008.

Many celebs have been seen sporting this style recently, including Sharon Stone, leading fashion experts to wonder how many other celebrities will be following her lead in the New Year.

Short hair styles are low maintenance and require little to now styling, depending on the cut. Some women find that a little pomade and leave in gloss are all that they really need while others, with longer or more elaborate versions of the basic pixie cut find that a medium hold gel is the way to go.

The best face shape to compliment this 2008 hairstyle is an oval, since this type of cut can make round and square faces appear chubby. Rectangular face shapes and inverted pear faces are also good bets for a pixie cut. Of course, anyone can select a style simply because they really like it. After all, you know your own face and features better than anyone else.

In terms of hair types, pixie cuts work best for medium textured straight hair, not too thick and not too thin. Pixies also work well for hair that is naturally wavy, since it can create an interesting texture and a natural movement while still lying close to the scalp in true pixie fashion.

Sharon Stones pixie is an example of this, since it is both short and full-bodied at the same time, thanks to her naturally wavy hair and strategically placed layers. Shampoo and condition your hair with a hair care product designed for damaged hair, and then blot hair gently with a thick towel. Avoid rubbing, which can cause frizz.

Next, spray on some leave in conditioner and gently work it into your still damp strands, making sure to condition all the way down to the tips. Apply a tennis ball amount of your favorite mousse and distribute evenly, and use a wide tooth comb to detangle and evenly distribute the styling products.

For a tousled look, use a blow dryer and a round brush to separate the hair strands into sections. When your hair is completely dry, finish with a brush and a leave in shine serum or pomade, and you are ready for a night on the red carpet or an evening out with your best friends.
