Style it in waves or light curls to achieve a breezy look.

Sometimes, a comb can be a girl’s best friend. If your pixie had feathered layers, and it is now grown out, you can lift it to add some style. Spritz on some hairspray all over your locks to keep them in place.

6. Pulled Back Hair

A small pull can go a long way in terms of a hairstyle. If you want a slick look, comb your hair back with some mousse but make sure to add height to it. If you want a messy look, do the same thing with your fingers instead of a comb and use some light mousse to make it look more natural instead of damp.

7. Moussed Hair
