Want the Harry Potter actress’ hot new hairstyle? We went to her stylist to get the scoop!
Emma Watson might have one of the most talked-about short hairstyles in Hollywood right now – and one of the cutest! Considering getting a rocking pixie like Emma? I decided to go to her mane man to get the details on how to work this style!
Emma’s cut was performed by celebrity hairstylist Rodney Cutler of Cutler Salons. Rodney is a highly sought-after industry talent with a roster of A-listers that depend on his scissor skills. Here are some quick thoughts from the man who lopped off Emma’s locks:
HL: Who is the best candidate for this type of haircut (face shape, hair type, lifestyle)?
Rodney Cutler: I truly believe all face shapes can wear short hair, but an oval-shaped face has the easiest time with a pixie cut. Regarding other face shapes, the cut has to be customized to soften or accentuate the areas that need special attention. For example, a woman with a square jaw and a strong forehead will need a side part with a sweeping bang to soften the exterior shape. It’s a severe haircut but when done correctly, anybody can wear it.
HL: What’s the most important thing women should consider before they get a pixie cut?
Rodney Cutler: The most important thing is how you feel about it. The emotional part is very important! You have to make sure you are emotionally ready for short hair so you can wear it with confidence! If you do, it can be one of the most liberating reinventions any woman can do for herself.
HL: How much maintenance is required?
Rodney Cutler: It requires little maintenance at home, but you have to maintain it in the salon every five weeks to keep it in shape.
What products do you recommend to get the look?
Rodney Cutler: A short pixie works best with products that have hold and separation without being sticky, drying or tacky. Cutler Molding Putty or Redken Rough Paste are perfect products for definition, piecy-ness and hold.
And there you have the scoop, straight from the man responsible for the great cut! What do you think? Would you rock a pixie cut?
