With the rise of celebs like Anne Hathaway, Evan Rachel Wood and Willow Smith going into salons for drastic super short hair cuts, Butterfly Studio Salon in New York stylist Harmonie Redman has some tips for those considering taking the plunge and chopping it all off.
Any woman or girl who decides to chop their long locks for a pixie cut or even a short buzz cut is someone with extreme confidence.
This new super short trend can be simple to style as long as you follow these basic rules of good hair care.
1. Be sure to continue using the shampoo and conditioning regime prescribed by your stylist. For dry or curly hair I recommend the Moisture Velvet Shampoo by Shu Uemura and for oily hair try the Kerastase Volumactiv or Age Recharge shampoos.
2. Opt for a cut with texture such as a razor cut or disconnected layering to give a modern edge to your look.
3. When it comes to styling your new hair, have fun and experiment with mousse, wax and styling creams! I like to use the Shu Uemura Extreme Urushi for extra shine, hold and volume before styling with a blow dryer. The Shu Uemura Yokan Craft Texturizing Melt is a great texturizer for finishing a short look.
HAIR TIP: A day to night transformation could be as simple as adding a slick of gel and a side part to your already cute tousled daytime pixie, pair this look with some serious red lips and a killer pair of earrings for a sexy summer evening style.
HAIR TIP: This is a great time to play with fun trendy hair color since the commitment to your shade is minimal!
