Prom Hairstyle: Pixie Do's and Don'ts

The pixie's the hottest cut of this Spring season, with top celebrity like Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham making the mane their own. But will it work for you?

If you are wondering whether this prom hairstyle suit you. Let us run through some tips on who can wear it, and how to tweak it to conform to your tress type.

Face Shape
If you have a heart-shaped face, tiny features and a long neck, you can make adjustments with longer layers and side-burn if you jaw is square, you face too round or your neck not not so swan-like.

Hair Styling Products
Use texture products to your advantage. For thicker hair, try Supremo Magic Move. Fine-haired ladies should aim for shine and separation without weighing locks down. Try Charles Worthington Big Hair Amazing Finish Balm, simply get this from drugstores at $5.99.

Hair Styling Tools
If your hair is ultra-curly, a pixie could be problematic for you. The curl can be blown out, but it will require a flat iron to really collapse and smooth the hair into the "perfectly undone" shape.
