Drawing inspiration for the hair styles of the stars has become a national past time. It looks like Hollywood has a case of pixie-cut fever: Joining the pixie stars of the past, (Twiggy, Mia Farrow) Michelle Williams is the latest star to go super short with a platinum blonde pixie with wispy-swept bangs. Though she’s no stranger to short hair, having bobbed her long locks in 2007, her new bleach-blonde pixie has time challenged women embracing their inner pixie.
HOW TO GET THE LOOK: Would you like a hairstyle and color that makes you stand out in a world of long hair mop top hairstyles? If that’s the case take a styling lesson for Michelle Williams and watch heads turn when you show up looking both cute and sexy in a grown up way. To get the look let’s take it one step at a time, starting with a “style cut and shaping”.
LET’S SHAPE IT: Start with a scissor or razor cut contoured silhouette with super short side swept bangs, soft tapered neckline and short wispy hair in front of the ear. This boyish-yet-still-feminine-style lengthens a short forehead and face while accenting cheekbones and eyes. The Pixie-cut is a sassy “time saving” do’ that suits all hair types, especially those with small face shapes and facial features like Michelle. With a few adjustments (trims as it grows) you can easily find the ideal length and shape for your hair, face shape and personal style.
LET’S STYLE IT: Talk about easy…just shampoo, condition and add a dab of shaping gel, styling mousse or nothing at all. To dress it up give it a once over with a blow dry to add volume or straighten unwanted curl and waves. Finish with a pinch of styling paste for a textured effect or a dab of hair polish and your good to go.
LET’S ADD MAKEUP: What a Pixie style with out makeup? To complement this retro-chic ’do smudge a sparkly pewter eye shadow on the top and bottom lash lines, tuck in a few faux lashes, and finished with a dusting of sparkly white shadow. Finish up with a drop of foundation to the pink lipstick makes “the lips a part of the face, not a separate statement.” Add small diamond studs and you’ve got the look.
NOW LET’S COLOR IT: Star’s change their hair color often for the many rolls they pay and Michelle is no exception. To get the look, her natural dark brown hair color is lightened several shades with cream bleach and followed with a pale blonde or Platinum blonde toner. To keep this up the new growth is lightened with cream bleach and toner every 4-5 week. This bit of hair color magic will cost a few extra bucks but hey; just look what it did for Michelle.
