Pixie Lott: Top of the Crops
If you haven't seen Pixie Lott's new choppy bob, then where have you been? Her long locks (or extensions) were snipped into shape by HOB Salon's Akin Konizi, 2008 & 2009 British Hairdresser of the Year. I really like the new style. It's a lot edgier and befitting of her short-clad, legs-out style. For this jaw-length, textured 'do, straight hair just won't cut it. Akin Konizi gives the lowdown on how to get Pixie's brushed-back, volumised texture.
Step 1: Begin with towel dried hair and smooth through Sebastian Mousse Forte, £18.95 @ HOB Salons using a Denman brush, brushing the hair away from the face.
Step 2: Blast dry the hair using a paddle brush in a backwards motion, and once dry, brush the hair into place and spray with Wella Professionals Stay Brilliant, £11.50 @ HOB Salons giving the hair a matte, rustic hold.
Step 3: Once the hair is in your desired shape, using a wide tooth comb focus on the front and sides and brush backwards to loosen the finish, letting the hair fall naturally, then use Alterna Modelling Clay, £18.00 @ HOB Salons to rub through your fingers and lightly apply to the ends of your hair giving a textured finish.
