The best part about a pixie haircut are the number of ways you can style it! Here, L'Oreal Professionnel shows you how to create a textured pixie using their Tecni-Art products that's pretty much appropriate for any occasion. 

  1. Prep hair with Dual Stylers Bouncy and Tender. Power-dry hair up and away from the face.
  2. Create a round brush set from the crown to the front hairline.
  3. For maximum volume, smoke True Grip into roots and place small single-prong pincurl clips on-base.
  4. Use Lumi.Contrôle to flatten hair on the sides to contour the face.

Stylist Tip: Falling hard? Use pincurl clips on-base within a blow-dried style to set volume on a short look.
