First, curl your hair. Leave it looking slightly messy by whipping your hair (insert Willow Smith song) around and running your fingers loosely through it. Use a spray with a light hold to prevent a plastic look when finished.

While the hair is damp, apply some smoothing serum and comb it through to even it out. Use a flat brush to blow-dry the hair smoothly. Spray the hair with a lightweight spray. Use a flat iron to press the hair into one-one and ½ inch sections towards one side. Use a light styling wax to separate selected parts. This hairstyle is more suitable for someone with wide and a higher shaped forehead. If your hair is curly, get a smoothing treatment.

If you already have a pixie cut, blow out your hair for a straight look. Use a round boar bristle brush to smooth out the hair while you blow it out. Do not roll the brush. Just pull it through your hair in straightforward motion. Do it from the roots to the ends. This method will make the hair straighter and give it a sleeker look.

For relaxed hair, apply a small amount of thick conditioner, with medium hold, and non-alcohol gel to the hair before blowing it out. Mold the hair into the desired style. Use a molding paste to spike your hair out as needed.

13. Short Curly Do with Side Part

14. Hair Teased Half-Up

Blow-dry your hair. You create volume by teasing your crown. Use your bangs to make a deep side part. Pull a small amount of the hair back into a half-up. Use two bobby pins to secure the hair. Before pinning down the hair, push the section of the hair towards the top to create volume. This short hairstyle gives a funky and hipster feel to it.

15. “Not So Neat” Bun with Volume

Tease a section of your short hair at the top. Use bobby pins to secure the section at the crown. Push it a little forward to create some volume. Pull the rest of the hair into a messy bun.Pretend as if you are creating a ponytail but do not pull the hair all the way through. Use the hair to create a bun in a loop form. Pull it tight so that the hair can get “poofed” up (for lack of better word). From the front, pull some hair pieces down to the side to create a messy and casual look.

16. Side Part Pull Back

Curl hair in loose waves with a 1” curling iron. Make a deep side part and pull hair across your forehead to the other side. Pin down the hair with bobby pins. Use the loose hair to hide the bobby pins by overlapping it.
