It’s All in the Pixie

Like all short hairstyles for Black women, the foundation is formed with the haircut. In this beautiful pixie cut featured in these images, Corey Paul designed an elegant precision haircut that tapers off in the back and falls gracefully over the ears.

Give Your Bang Some Flair With Custom Colored Hair Additions

Corey wanted to give the bang area a little more definition so he added some 100% human hair additions to the front. He also created a custom hair color for the bang that would draw your attention as it created an elegant contrast against the light ash brown hair color he created for the model’s own hair. 

Adding color to hair additions is fun and it gives the model the ability to try something new without being tied to the long process of letting the color grow out on her own hair. Corey used a color melt technique to blend different hues of pinks, purples, oranges, and yellows together. The finished result creates bold streaks throughout the bang that add a touch of flash to this short pixie cut for Black women. Corey decided to use 100% human hair because of the versatility it gives the hairstyle. Human hair can be curled and will last longer than its synthetic counterpart.

Taking Care of This Short Pixie Cut for Black Women at Home

One of the biggest advantages of pixie haircuts is how easy they are to maintain. Along with looking absolutely stunning and stylish, pixies are easy to keep up. Corey created an at-home maintenance routine for his model that is incredibly easy to follow. He suggests his model sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase at night for starters. Cotton will draw moisture out of your hair and could leave a residue. Corey recommends either using the silk pillowcase or wrapping your hair with a silk or satin bonnet. In the mornings, you should add some type of daily pomade and then run your fingers through your hair. The goal is to create a messy, free-flowing, and tousled look. With proper care, this short pixie cut for Black women should last about two weeks.
