PIXIE HAIR ESSENTIALS

Achieve an elegant swept-back blow dry look that’s perfect for pixie hair with these hair-perfecting products:

STEP 1

PREP YOUR PIXIE

Apply a golf ball-sized amount of a hair mousse – we love Wella Deluxe Lively Hold Mousse for bounce – through towel-dried hair, working from root to tip.

STEP 2

BLOW DRY

Add a nozzle to your hairdryer before styling. Then, blow dry pixie hair away from the face with a nozzle, pointing down the hair shaft so that the cuticle lies flat. This creates a smoother, shinier finish.

STEP 3

ADD VOLUME

Using a fine-tooth comb, create a side parting, sweeping hair over to one side. Then, mist this section with Wella Deluxe Wonder Volume Hairspray to smooth flyaways and set into place. For an extra volume boost, apply hairspray to fingertips and massage into roots

STEP 4

SMOOTH AND SET

Finally, use the comb to smooth the other side of hair behind the ear, creating a sleek finish. Add one last spritz of Wella Deluxe Wonder Volume Hairspray to pixie hair look long-lasting hold.
