Something of a hair icon, Michelle Williams is the poster girl for pixie cuts. Her artful, elegant razor-crop is great for her because the lack of length exposes and accentuates her strong and pretty features, while the head-hugging curvature and softly separated texture gives it a sexy, womanly quality. Now, however, she is working on growing it out; while she does, she’s showing us how versatile a shorter shape can be, even in the regrow stage. Shown here on the OZ: The Great & Powerful promotional tour, she’s used the extra length to create a teased crown, which gives her style elevation, and the sensibility of a vintage sixties style. For tips on creating your own glamorous, short shape, click style notes.
Step: Ask your stylist for tight to the nape razor-cut pixie with soft texture and natural movement. If you want to play with different shapes, leave it a little longer around the crown.
Step: For styling, use hair creme, hands and blowdryer to create smooth texture. Once dry, use hands to place hair as you like it. Keep it a little ruffled, imperfect.
Step: Use a teasing brush and primp working spray to backcomb the crown for extra height, creating a romantic, sixties aesthetic.
