Hair Update

Hair Update

I am really happy to stop in and share a quick hair update with you! I have been getting a lot of questions and requests on my current cut and color so I figured a post is absolutely necessary. I thought I would share some current pixie pictures, and answer some of the general questions you guys have been asking lately.

Show Me Homie!
………………………………………………………………………………….

First off, I get a lot of requests to see the back of my hair, so I did you one better and put together a little Pixie360 for you to see all the angles plus a side by side you can print for your stylist if you need.

Who Did That?
………………………………………………………………………………….

I still go to Hair-Do Salon for my regular cut and color process. It is located on Val Vista and Baseline in Gilbert, Arizona. One of the reasons I love this salon so much is that the stylists are offered and sometimes required to take continuing education so that their skills and techniques are well practice and relevant to the current styles today. Most of the stylists receive additional training specifically on short hairstyle cutting techniques to keep up with the pixie epidemic bestowed on us by Pinterest. Another thing that is so nice is when you call to make an appointment you can tell them what you are wanting over the phone and they will go out of their way to try to book you with a stylist who is the most practiced at the style you request, ie if you want red hair they will put you will a color expert, if you want short hair they will put you with a pixie pro. Hair-Do Salon does an amazing job on my hair and I honestly believe that having the right person do you hair can make or break your whole look! I am pretty sure the best way to get an appointment at this salon is to call: 539-7050 with the area code (480).

If you wanna see what Hair-Do Salon looks like and get a feel for the experience you can watch this fun behind the scenes video I made last time I went in to get a cut and color.

What Do You Put On It?
………………………………………………………………………………………..

I also get requests for hair product suggestions for short hair. I know everyone’s hair type varies so I will have to do a series of posts to cover the different hair types and the products I recommend accordingly. I do have a handful of products I 100% recommend to anyone with short hair or a pixie cut, regardless of your hair type. Here are some of my favorite hair products you will see me using regularly and consistently:

 

 

How Do You Do That?
………………………………………………………………………………………..

Most recently you have been asking me how I style my hair in the tousled semi curled way I have been wearing it. I don’t have a current tutorial on the exact way I styled it in this particular picture but I do have two older youTube videos that demonstrate some short hair curling techniques. The first is How to Curl Pixie Hair and the second one is How to do Retro Curls on a Pixie. I will for sure try and work on making an updated curled/tousled tutorial for you guys!

Hopefully this post was helpful for you and I was able to answer some of your questions! If you guys have any other questions for me or specific requests for a new tutorial (doesn’t have to be pixie or hair related), comment below with your ideas. I will do my best to take your comments and suggestions into consideration when making my upcoming YouTube tutorials!

Thank you guys for always showing me the love! I am so blessed!
XOXO,

    Great cut, and color. Thanks for sharing your know how. For those of us who are hair challenged (like me) it’s nice to find tutorials that break it down. Have a great day!

    I discovered your YouTube on how to style your pixie. I am so excited! I am a 48 old mom of 5 teens and just cut my hair too in a pixie, even before I discovered your website. Your tips on styling and product are so helpful!! You are an absolute doll! Do you have a video on how you apply your eye makeup? I feel with my short hair I need to take more time to make my eyes pop. I’m a whippy cake addict, so can’t wait to see more.

    Hugs and Blessings!!

      Your hair sounds SO amazing. I am glad my tutorials and tips have helped you, I LOVE hearing that! I don’t have a current video on my eye make up routine, but that is a great idea, so I will see what I can do for you ;)

    I LOVE your hair. I recently found your You Tube channel and have watched all your hair tutorials. I currently have a assymetrical pixie cut and am learning how to style it. I was just wondering, how long have you had your pixie cut for and will you ever grow it out? I am such a hair cut jumper, one month I am growing it, the next I am cutting it off :) I really want to stick with this do to learn how to style it and learn different ways to style it also.

      Thank you! And your hair sounds amazing. I have had really short hair for a few years, and a pixie for a couple. I too like to change things up, so each time I get my hair done, I like to tone it differently, or even slightly change the style. Although my changes are very subtle, it makes a big difference! And not to mention, there are so many ways I like to style my pixie, so I never get bored with it or anything. I hope this helps you! :)

    I had my hair cut is a pixie today and I love it. Thank you for all your great info. I have thick hair which is curly in the back. Do you have any suggestions for products that would help me control the curls in the back of my head. I bought Spoil Me and Headrush after reading about them here and I used both on my shoulder length hair and loved them.
    Thanks

      So glad to hear that you have tried Spoil Me and Headrush, cause I LOVE those products! Those will actually still be perfect for your new pixie as well. As far as other products that will help you, that is something I will probably have to do a blog post on, as it would need a lot of explanation and details. I will definitely consider this post as soon as I can! In the meantime, you can check out this hairspray spray wax: http://bit.ly/MFxZMi It will work great to keep your hair styled however you want all day! xoxo

    I have to tell you how helpful your videos are to me,I have short hair,trying to get my gal on the same age,that video will help! I love they way you tell when and how to use the products, I am loving Bed Head! Also, I use a Clinique eyebrow poduct I think you would love,it is called Instant lift for brows, sort of a soft waxy crayon thing,other end is highlighter for under the brow,I use Soft Blonde,here is a linkhttp://www.clinique.com/products/1595/Makeup/Brows Beautiful product.
    Also, I am finding a fresh pillowcase every night or two seems to be helping my hair and complexion.
    Big question is I have decided to buy a Chi flat iron,Yikes,they comes in sizes, what size do I buy??? I am trying to get my top/bangs longer. You are such an inspiration,keep the videos coming! thanks for all you do

    • Becki - September 2, 2014

      Oooo! Thank you so much for the tips! Sharing is always caring! ;)

      I for sure think a 1 inch flat iron will be just right. If you can only find something close to that size or a little smaller though you will still be totally fine!
