The tomboy cut was made famous in the sixties, worn with minis by famous models from the 60s. Today we love it best when it's smooth. Here's a closer look at this minimalist and refined 'it-girl' hairstyle.
Fall head over heels for the tomboy cut
A short style with a big personality, the smooth pixie also has a soft side. It's proof that feminine beauty isn't just found in long flowing hair: revealing the neck and graphic locks framing the forehead can be every bit as sexy. The proof: hair stylists backstage are creating as many faux pixies (both straight and wavy) on models with long hair as they do faux bobs.
An androgynous style that's far from plain Jane ...
The pixie look is harder to pull off in real life than it looks in magazines: it takes a brave girl to risk seeing if it suits the shape of her face. However, according to L'Oréal Professionnel expert hairdresser Denis Holbecq, it suits round faces just as much as oval and triangle shapes. His advice: 'It looks better on blondes than on redheads'. Go even further, he says, and 'try platinum blonde'!
A cut that requires expert styling
To ensure the cut looks natural and is easy to style, the layering needs to be precise and requires meticulous upkeep by an expert. A straightening iron is absolutely essential to create clean chic lines so you can channel your inner avant-garde fashionista!
