If you wear a pixie cut or any other super short style, then you know the perils of spending too much time away from your stylist’s chair. Short hair is all good and everybody loves it. You get compliments left and right when your hair is fresh and laid just so. But, when things get too busy and you miss an appointment or two, things can very quickly go from fab to drab.
Unkempt short hair is not the business. It looks a mess. Undone short hair is worse than most other hairstyles when it isn’t fresh. Because it has to be just so, in order to give the vibe you need it to, learning to maintain your short hair at home in between salon visits, is something all short haired ladies need to work on perfecting.
You don’t have to be a complete DIYer, but a few tricks up your sleeve will definitely get you over the hump of a missed appointment. They will also keep you from looking like no one loves you.
The main things to remember when focusing on short hair care between salon visits is that you need to keep the cut looking neat. First and foremost, short hair is made by the cut. A fabulous cut can take you so much farther than a poorly cut pixie ever could.
If you are blessed with a stylist that is good with the shears, then keeping your cut cleaned up between visits shouldn’t be too much of a hassle. A good cut will also mean you have less room for error when you give yourself a little trim in your bathroom.
What you will need to keep your cut fresh are:
1. a pair of decent shears;
2. a small beard trimmer;
3. a razor comb; and
4. a full-sized pair of clippers.
