WithTwilight bringing vampire-chic to the center of fashion’s eye, it’s a good time to look at hairstyles that match the mythological theme. This pixie cut is exquisitely detailed; the tightly tapered nape and sides contrast with the volume at the crown and the long sweeping fringe. Result: The kind of gothic romanticism we’re dying to sink teeth in to. Dark color unifies the various lengths and adds shine to the choppy texture. Lighter brows give unexpected softness to the femme fatale vibe. Get this seductive shape in a few simple steps….
Step: Ask your stylist for a cut with tapered sides and back and a longer, disconnected top that falls to the chin. Blending varied lengths is better accomplished with a razor than shears; ask if this tool is right for your texture and density.
Step: A dark shade will give this cut drama, and show off the fringy edges. Try a shade of deep espresso, blue black, or rich eggplant.
Step: For the finish shown, apply volume foam to roots and dry with fingers, twisting large sections to encourage natural wave. Use a pea sized dab of cream wax on ends to define, create contrast, and separate.
