Short Hairstyles – to Pixie or not to Pixie?

We’re all busy, right? Well, if like us, you are feeling that time is more precious than ever, especially in the mornings, then perhaps the answer is all in your hair. And guess what? There’s never been a better time to chop your lengthy locks into a pixie crop!

Sleek bobs and chic pixie crops have been at the forefront of the fashion catwalks and red carpets this season and the good news is that you don’t need to be a red carpet starlet to face the chop; you just need to get the right advice from your hairdresser.

The team at Moda Hair Salon in Concord couldn’t agree more with L’Oreal Professionnel Technical Consultant Adam Kemmy’s top tips for what should be taken into consideration before you take the plunge:

Face Shape

Face shape comes on top of the list; generally a small oval face is best suited to this look. Although with the right stylist/colourist you can have a Pixie designed to suit you.

For example, if you have a square or oblong face shape. An asymmetric twist to the cut will soften the geometry of your face shape. If your face shape is more round, a squarer fringe will suit you more.


Colour as always is the ultimate accessory and is essential for the Pixie cut. Moda Hair’s pick this season is seen on Michelle Williams, a Mocha Blonde root phasing out to a clearer beige blonde.


Hair texture plays an important role, for instance if your hair is prone to lying flat, the L’Oreal Professionnel Série Expert Volumetry range will ensure that maximum lift is achieved all day, then our choice to finish the look is the new L’Oreal Professionnel Tecni.Art ‘Density Material’ which is perfect for creating volume, texture and versatility.

So come in to see your Moda Hair stylist, have a picture or two of your dream Pixie and with our help you will be ready rock this It Look.
