Have you perused the perfectly performed and positively polished pixies on the page of Courtney of @courtneyxcentrichair? We have. And we came away with a renewed passion for pixies!

Based in Waterloo, Ontario in Canada, Courtney loves intense color corrections, vivid colors and—as we celebrate here—short haircuts. She spends her free time seeking inspiration and knowledge in the hair community, always perfecting her craft.

In the Instagram posts below, Courtney offers some great tips for styling pixies:

  • Like all others, I direct the hair very forward and in this case I’m flipping the ends back a bit. The best way to do this is to hold the brush vertically while you grab the hair and pull down. Kill two birds with one stone.
  • As always, I’m constantly assessing the haircut while I blow dry to make sure the hair is performing how it should. That way I know where I have to tweak the haircut.
  • Finish with some dry texture spray and pinch, fluff and tuck.
  • Ideally, styling short hair should be quick and easy. This whole blow dry took only 7 minutes and 2 products.
  • Directing all the hair forward from the crown and then towards the middle will provide good tension to smooth it out, as well as keep the style narrow.
  • You can see I don’t really section the hair and I’m essentially just grabbing it with the brush and pulling forward. The last thing you want to do for this type of style is part it and then blow dry everything to each side. It would be poof city!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

By request - another pixie styling video! Like all others, I direct the hair very forward and in this case I’m flipping the ends back a bit.

Blow drying a pixie cut! Ideally, styling short hair should be quick and easy. This whole blowdry took only 7 minutes and 2 products. Directing all the hair forward from the crown and then towards the middle will provide good tension to smooth it out, as well as keep the style narrow. You can see I don’t really section the hair and I’m essentially just grabbing it with the brush and pulling forward. The last thing you want to do for this type of style is part it and then blowdry everything to each side. It would be poof city!

Super satisfying video that ISN’T sped up to show some razoring. A lot of my haircuts start off just removing length with the razor like this and discovering what the hair wants to do. Little known fact: I often go through the haircut when it’s dry and blunt up the ends with my scissors a bit if I need to. It’s like reverse texturizing!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— . . . . . . . . . #pixiecut #pixie360 #pixiehaircut #shortpixie #longpixie #shorthair #shorthaircut #cosmoprofbeauty #cosmopro #licensedtocreate #platinumpixie #precisioncut #nothingbutpixies #pixiepalooza #longpixiecut #modernsalon #hairbrained #platinumblond #ladyfade #haircutvideo #schwarzkopfpro #bleachout #hairvideo #hairtutorial
