Catering to Your Hair Type
For women with a range of hair types, from fine to thick, and including aging, naturally curly, wavy, and straight hair, Candice’s top tip is clear: *Invest in a good diffuser!* This easy-to-use tool sets the style and shape of your pixie shag, bringing volume to your hair.
Tailoring to Your Face Shape
When asked about the key considerations for different face shapes, Candice was brimming with insights. For round, oval, and heart-shaped faces, she suggests cuts that are slimmer and more contoured, with a shorter length on top and a little more length at the nape. This elongates the face shape.
Ladies with rectangle and square faces stand to gain from adding a little more volume on the sides and less height on the top, to counteract their face shape. Most importantly, though, Candice reminds us that “Everyone’s face shape is beautiful” and encourages us to rock a pixie shag that feels good!
Styling Tips, Tricks and Product Recommendations
For busy women on the go, Candice brings a suite of styling solutions to the table. A good texture spray or cream is what she advises for scrunching and an easy on-the-go style. For lighter weight needs, she recommends Cult + King’s Jelly, best suited for finer to medium hair types. For thicker hair types and tighter curl patterns, she vouches for Hairstory’s Balm, a medium-weight sculpting cream.
A pixie shag, Candice reminds us, opens up space for more movement in your hair and facilitates any morning styling choice, from air drying to full blowout. Embrace these expert words and flaunt your pixie shag with confidence!
