Pixie cuts are a short hair standard and Mandy McCullough, Sam Villa Ambassador, Redken Artist and salon owner of Fix Salon, is here to make sure you nail it every time.

“If short haircuts make you nervous, this pixie is one that will not let you down because it can easily be customised to every client, making them feel like you are a short hair genius,” Mandy said.

Having recently demonstrated this cut and how to personalise it on the @SamVillaPros Facebook page this week in live education, Mandy is here to share hair hacks that will lead you to pixie prowess, with video support as well. Read on.

1. Shears 

“Choosing the right tool always affects the results.  Below the perimeter the cut follows the head shape, so a shorter shear like the Sam Villa Signature Series Swivel Shear 6” helps control sections and create a contoured silhouette. Above the perimeter is all about creating texture and removing bulk, so the Sam Villa Signature Series Dry Cutting Shear 7” is ideal to power cut the top of the shape,” she said.

2. Sections 

“Diagonal sections create a softer silhouette to frame the face and works with almost all hair types,” Mandy explained.

3. Product 

“Redken Dry Shampoo Paste 05 is a little of what every short hair client craves. A little dry shampoo and a little moldable texture cream mixed together to give a little lived-in longevity,” Mandy finished.
