Whether it’s bought on by the new year or by a sudden desire to switch up your appearance drastically, when you’re considering chopping it all off, you want to make sure you’re considering all of your options before you take the plunge. You can go one of three ways, the pixie, the bob, or the lob. The pixie, the shortest of them all, is the easiest to style, but does require frequent trips to the salon for upkeep. The bob and the lob are great in-between styles if you have long hair and aren’t 100% set on a pixie cut. We detailed the three hairstyles out below to make your decision a little easier. Remember, if you’re not 100% committed to a pixie cut, the best change can often come from an in-between cut.
If you have long locks and you’re considering a drastic change, a pixie cut might be for you. This style doesn’t require too much upkeep at first, just apply Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment from roots to ends and air dry or blow dry with your fingers. Or if you’re looking for a little texture, apply a pea-sized amount of Amp2 between your hands and muss through hair.
This sleek look is flattering on all face shapes from oval to round. Whether you’re inspired by Uma Thurman’s blunt bob in Pulp Fiction or Anna Wintour’s infamous sleek bob, this hairstyle is easy to style by blow-drying with a round brush and finishing with Flex Shaping Hairspray.
This longer, more textured version of the bob might be the best transitional cut if you have long hair and aren’t sure you want to commit to chopping it all off. To get the textured feel, use Living Proof’s Instant Texture Mist to create an effortlessly tousled style.
