Pixie Hairstyle for Black Women
Pixie hairstyles are usually short around the sides with extra length at the top. The definition of a pixie haircut has changed dramatically in the last few years. Superstars like Rhianna and Halle Berry have changed the standards for a pixie haircut. Yvette Alston is a professional hairstylist in Columbia, SC. Her version of a pixie hairstyle for black women consists of short, razor cut sides all around with length at the top. She also created a long bang in the front that can cover the client’s left eye producing a peek-a-boo effect.
To achieve the height at the top, Yvette installed human hair extensions. She chose to use human hair because of the versatility it afforded her. Synthetic hair doesn’t give you the ability to use heat on the additions the way human hair does.

The combination of the razor cut sides, the pink highlights and the peek-a-boo bang create an atmosphere of fun and sophistication with this pixie hairstyle for black women.
