A variation of the pixie cut is to use the top with less bulk, staying close to the root. In this case, women who have more open curls can look like straight hair, so if you don’t want this effect, avoid cutting. But in women with tightly closed and frizzy curls, even very short ones, it is possible to see the coiled structure of the strands.

Since it is shorter, to give the pixie effect, the side in this case is usually shaved. Check out two different ways to use it below for inspiration:

How to style short curly hair?

In order for the cut to appear the right way round and the curls to be structured, it is important to make the right finish. See step by step:

correct styling cream

Some styling and finishing creams leave curls tighter and therefore may appear shorter. For this reason, prefer styling creams with a light finish. This will help to open up the curls and leave them at the ideal length.


  • Wet curls if they are dry or wash them normally in the shower;
  • Use the products suited to your type of yarn;
  • Detangle curls with a wide tooth comb;
  • Take the cream and apply it on the strands (be careful not to apply it at the root);
  • To flatten your hair and give definition to your curls, use a cotton shirt or cloth, this will help control frizz;
  • Choose to let it dry naturally, however, if you can’t, use a diffuser to heat dry. And if you use the dryer, don’t forget to apply heat protection;
  • If it dries naturally, avoid running your hands through curls or lying on wet hair.
