The wet pixie: 21st-century mermaid

The wet pixie combines two of the most exciting recent hair trends: a very short cut and the wet look. This cutting-edge style is the new must-have look, elegant and sophisticated.

A shortcut to style

Short hair has reached the level of classic. The "pixie" cut's bold femininity is undeniable. But to go one step beyond, to be a leader and not a follower, the cut needs to take a dip. Are you ready to take the plunge for a wet-look pixie?

The wet-look pixie: a style for 21st century mermaids

"The wet pixie is ideal for square-, round- and even triangle-shaped faces, and looks best with thick, wavy hair," according to L'Oréal Professionel ambassador, Denis Holbecq. "Great on brunettes, but a disaster for blondes," it awakens the inner-aquatic goddess and brings her into the 21st century. Slicked back and short, your face is shown to its best advantage: no accessories needed. It is the ideal look for women blazing the style trail.

Bye bye old school hair creams, hello Depolish!

Old-fashioned hair creams are not for this job. Denis recommends using L'Oréal Professionnel's Depolish. Before dipping your toes (or tails) in the water, however, start with a full head of perfect volume, try a professional blow-dry before diving in.
