“If short haircuts make you nervous, this pixie is one that will not let you down because it can easily be customized to every client, making her feel like you are a short-hair genius!” enthuses McCullough, who will be demonstrating an entire pixie cut and how to personalize it for clients on Monday, April 19th at 8:00 AM PST/11:00 AM ET on Facebook: @SamVillaPros.
Here, McCullough reveals her three biggest pixie pointers:
1 Shears Choosing the right tool always affects the results. Below the perimeter the cut follows the head shape, so using a shorter shear helps control sections and creates a contoured silhouette. Above the perimeter is all about creating texture and removing bulk, so opt for a shear like the Sam Villa Signature Series Dry Cutting Shear 7".
2 Sections Diagonal sections create a softer silhouette to frame the face and works with almost all hair types.
3 Products Utilize hair paste along with dry shampoo while styling to add moldable texture along with a lived-in look.
