    Protect Your Hair

    Before you begin styling, it's crucial to shield your hair from the heat you're about to apply. Apply TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray throughout your damp hair. This product is designed to protect your hair from heat styling up to 450°F. It also helps to smooth your hair and reduce frizz.

    Add Volume with Mousse

    To give your pixi cut the necessary volume and hold, shake the TRESemmé Extra Hold Mousse well and apply 1-2 dollops to your hair. Work the mousse through your hair evenly to ensure every strand is coated, giving your hair the body it needs for the brushed back look.

    3

    Rough Dry Your Hair

    Using your hands, rough dry your hair to remove excess moisture. This step is all about prepping your hair for the final styling, so don't worry about getting it perfectly dry—just focus on getting it mostly dry and ready for the next step.

    Blow Dry with a Round Brush

    Now it's time to shape your pixi. Using a round brush, blow dry the front section of your hair back, lifting the hair upwards to create volume and direction.

    Comb and Style

    Once your hair is dry, use a comb to gently guide your hair back, further defining the style. This step helps to ensure that every hair is in place and contributes to the overall sleekness of the brushed back look.

    Lock in Your Look

    The final touch is to set your style with TRESemmé Total Volume Hairspray. A fine mist over your hair will lock in the style, ensuring your brushed back pixi stays put and looks fabulous all day long.
