Corey Powell is one of the top colorists at the famed Sally Herschberger salon in Los Angeles, and has styled numerous celebrities. The pixie cut is all the rage, and it’s a great option during the cancer fight. Whether you are in cancer treatment, just growing out your hair, or preparing for hair release before treatment, Corey shares his expertise for getting a great pixie cut.
Round face: The widths of your forehead, cheekbones, and jaw are equal, with soft features (think Charlize Theron). You want to create height and length with a spiky top, short sides, and wispy neckline.
Square Face: Consider yourself lucky if you have a strong angular jawline (think Demi Moore). However, if you need to play down the jawline add lots of texture, especially around the edges. Spiky cuts, off-center parts work great.
Heart Shape: The heart-shaped face is wider at the forehead and gently narrows down, with sometimes a bit of a pointy chin (think Reese Witherspoon). Draw attention to the eyes and cheekbones with a sweeping side bang to break up forehead. You may want to balance the chin by showing some hair at neckline and behind ear.
Oval Face: You have the most versatile face shape (think Ann Hathaway). To find your most flattering style, determine what are your best feature (eyes/cheek bones?) and highlight that with your hair cut.
Pixie cuts and curly hair can be difficult. Ask your stylist to cut deliberate chunks, and use a Keratin treatment to smooth out a bit.
Tell them you like them to cut into the hair. This is called slice cutting.
My fave right now is Clay Definer by SHU UEMURA.
This all depends on hair texture, but definitely say NO if hair is fine or you have a strong curl!
Use clips and pins. Make it fun. It’s your style so own it. Go as long as you can in between cuts. Doing some color always creates a stronger, softer, brighter, or darker look. It all depends on the look you want while your hair grows.
