The short cut called “pixie cut” is more and more popular among people and the street. To know everything about this trendy haircut, we asked Patrick Lagré, artistic director of the Toni & Guy hair salons . From choosing the right length to the daily maintenance, everything, everything, everything will know everything about the pixie!
Should we say “a” or “a” pixie, since the term is English?
One could say “one” since it is especially women who wear this cup. But at the same time, it’s a masculine, boyish haircut, so saying “a” pixie is just as right. The difficulty lies in the fact that this androgynous cut has evolved a lot since its first appearance on the model Twiggy , so much so that it is difficult to define precisely today.
What is pixie cut today?
There are several versions. But the basic concept of pixie is to be a short haircut with a lot of sweetness. It is also a style with a strong personality, which allows different hairstyles. There is a disconnection between the short base and the longer lashes in the ears, everything is mixed if one passes the hand in the hair, it is a “harmonious disconnection”. Due to this asymmetry, the wick can be worn to the right, to the left, or brought to the front. We can also keep a bang. This cut can be really structured, without being too graphic, but above all, it is essential that it keeps its softness. This is where the difficulty of this cup lies.
Is the pixie cut suitable for all face shapes?
When choosing a cup, there are several rules. In principle all forms of faces can wear a pixie. But the nature and the implantation of the hair are also very important factors. For very thick hair for example, it will be necessary to either opt for very short, or for locks with a real length for it to hold with the weight. To have a cup that can be easily and naturally replaced after the hairdresser step it is imperative to respect the nature of the hair because we are working on something that moves, a flexible hairstyle and absolutely not fixed. There are so many parameters that come into play for this choice that it is really case by case. The counseling stage is very important before starting with his hairdresser.
What are the different variants of this one?
We can vary the lengths at the level of the ears and the neck, intensify more or less the gradient on the top, really keep the length to create a wick or a fringe. There are really many variations and that’s why the pixie can really adapt to all faces.
