Get pixie cut
Ask your stylist for a modified pixie cut. Have them add sharp layers along your neck and increase the length as you move toward the top of the head and the fringe area. The ends may be lightly texturized with a razor for a sculpted look.
Wash; condition; dry
Wash your hair with shampoo and follow with a conditioner suited to your hair type. Towel-dry your hair when you're finished.
Apply balm and texturing cream; dry
Apply an anti-frizz balm and a light texturizing cream to your hair. Blow dry your hair upside down to add volume around the lower areas, while drying the upper sections while using a paddle brush to keep them straight and smooth.
Use pomade and wax
Apply a small amount of pomade or wax to spike up the shorter pieces when your hair is dry. Put a dollop of product between your hands and rub them together to soften the wax. Use your fingers to pull the strands into position.
Finish off with a glossy finishing spray or hair spray to control frizz and fly-aways. Touch up your 'do throughout the day to maintain the look. Dark sunglasses and an intense pout are optional.
