The Queen Bey made waves yesterday with Instagram photos of her new short Pixie cut.   Will Beyonce‘s new hairstyle make the pixie cut the hottest new trend in hair?

Which made us think with Fall upon us, it could be time to make a drastic hair change to celebrate the new season.  With a pixie cut, the most common questions are how to style it, can I style it multiple ways  and will it look good on me?

Beyonce’s new hairstyle gives the star a few options in looks.  In the photo she is rocking a side part and brushed off her face.  However, she could brush her hair forward and it will be similar to Michelle Williams, whose pixie cut has become her signature style.  Seen in this photo of Beyonce is a bottle of Jane Carter Solution: Wrap & Roll ($9.00)  a soft mousse, that doesn’t leave residue and perfect for color treated hair.  Apply to wet hair the wrap or set and dry with dryer or let hair dry naturally.  We are assuming that this product was used in her hair to get the finished look.

A pixie cut or very short hairstyle looks good on any woman it is all about the styling, shape of the cut and of course the confidence to rock it.  Here are a few tips when thinking about hitting the salon.

Oval Face: You have the perfect shape face for Beyonce‘s pixie cut or any variety of pixie cuts.

Square Face: You want to keep some volume on top. Think Halle Berry pixie with a little spike to get the volume.  Or go with soft wispy bangs to create softness on an angular face.

Round Face:  Ginnifer Goodwin‘s haircut is a great look on a round face.  The cut gives several styling options based on the overall look, there is a longer top section so that you can wear it across the forehead or with styling products and a little backcombing add some height and off the face.  This cut will create some elongation in the face.

Oval Face: Think Michelle Williams famous pixie cut, which is the epitome of a classic, true pixie.

 

Whether you choose more length or a little shorter, keep in mind that regular cuts are needed on this shape to keep it looking its best.  Just as Jennifer Aniston made the “Rachael” haircut popular, Victoria Beckham and the angular bob, I am sure that Beyonce just took the pixie to a whole new level.
