We have had a number of requests asking about how we took our long haired models into convincing Pixie Cuts for ACLER at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia. So let’s take a look.
We started on brushed out hair then section out an orange sized, circular section at the crown area which is pinned away. The hair underneath was divided into four sections above the ears and center of back and front. A small section was taken out at the left temple and pinned away.
We then filled the hair with Redken Full Effect 04 styling whip and combed the hair clockwise, compressing it tightly to the head. The idea here is to smooth the hair so close to the head it creates no bulk so our wig fits perfectly without lumps and bumps. Once the hair is tightly controlled, unpin the crown section and load it up with the styling whip and combe it tightly toward the nape, pin with bobby pins then merge it into the previous larger section. The small section at the left temple is combed anticlockwise making both sides tight to the head and directed away from the face. A hair net or wig cap is placed neatly over the entire hair.
We then positioned the wigs and secured to the head and cut into our awesome Pixie designs.
Now we’re runway ready!
