Pixie hairstyle is one of the hottest hair styles this season. It is a flattering edgy geometrical cut that gives the overall look of a woman that is not afraid to experiment and play with her hair.

Aishat Alaya, a.k.a. Hyesha, an upcoming Afro pop singer, is one of the Nigerian artistes that have traded long locks for sleek, short styles. Hyesha wears her hair super low, while the front and top are left a bit longer and curly for that funky look that is often associated with hip hop stars.
Geometric haircut is still very hot since this season. This is when you cut a side of your hair shorter than the other side, allowing your stylist to create a style that suits your unique facial features.

Hyesha, a final year French student of the University Of Lagos, says celebrities go for short hairdos because they are versatile, special and unconventional which work well on stage.
Aside music figures, an average lady can also be gracious and elegant in short hairstyles. The afro pop singer told Beauty Passion that she preferred to wear short hairdo instead of the regular long hair because it’s comfortable to wear and it is easy to make bold statement with it.

But not all women can get away with short hairdos, except those with an oval face shape. And sometimes, it takes more than one attempt to get the perfect cut for your faceshape. Hyesha first experimented with Anita Baker hairdo but had to go for another style when the result was not satisfactory.

However, super short hair on very tall women can look too masculine and it is not always flattering on petite women. Short hair on women with round faces can make the round face appear fuller. So you have to choose a style that flatter your plus features and downplay your not-so-good features

To maintain a healthy look, short hairdos require regular trimming, conditioning and plenty of moisture.
