Short cuts often get a bad rap for being less versatile than their longer counterparts, but with cropped styles still finding favor in trending cuts, it behooves you to know various ways to style pixies and share those methods with your clients. 

Redken Styling & Grooming Expert Jenny Balding has three favorite ways to style a pixie—the forward sweep, the sleek pixie and glam volume.

"With short cuts, you need to create attitude whether it's rock-and-roll or romantic," Balding says. "By choosing the right styling products, you can create definition, shine or volume to achieve the specific look you're going for."
