A Guide To Styling A Pixie Cut For The Prom

The prom dance is a milestone in every girl’s life, and looking anything but your absolute best is not an option. Obviously, you will acquire a great designer dress for this very special occasion, and if you have short hair, a pixie cut is ideal. With that in mind, here are some novel style tips to make sure you turn some heads.

Glam It Up!

You can turn a simple pixie cut into something glamorous with little effort. It’s important to know what dress you’re going to wear, and if you have yet to do that, Peaches Boutique is one of the best prom dress stores. When you buy from an online boutique, prices are generally lower. Start with brushing your hair back. With the most glamorous headband you can find, gently push the strands of hair through the hairband, and finish it off with some good hair setting spray, which should hold the hairdo for the entire evening. Add a few well-placed hairpins for good measure and you are ready to wow your friends!

Frame Your Face With Curls

You will need a good set of hair curling tongs for this style, and by creating a couple of long curls on each side of your face, you can create a great look - one that will go well with any prom dress. You might want to experiment for a few days prior to the prom night, which will allow some trial and error by creating different thickness of curls and see how they look. 

There are some great images of pixie styles you can find online that have been glammed up a little, and if you can’t find one that suits, there are lots more websites that are dedicated to working miracles with short hair. 

The Faux Up Hair Do

If your pixie cut is long at the front, you might just get away with this unique style, which will require some good hair finishing spray and quite a few bobby pins. Use the pins to keep the hair up, then apply the spray, which should give you enough hold, and with all the pins on the top of your head, no one will notice them.

Sleek Waves

The waves work better with longer pixie cut, and by creating a parting on the right side, you can comb the longer hair to the left. With lots of gel or spray, you can train both sides to lay flat for the entire night. Take a few bobby pins with you in case you need some extra hold halfway through the evening. A trial run is always a good idea.

Whatever you do, don’t leave this until the last minute. If possible, take a whole weekend and play around with hair styles until you feel confident with one. With the right dress, your prom will be one to be remembered for all the right reasons.
