Top Five Hairstyles Ever: Mia Farrow

Jayne Dempsey, a colour educator and stylist at our Trafford Centre salon, runs down her top five hairstyles of all time. In at number five, she brings you Mia Farrow‘s pixie cropped hair…

At number 5 is actress/singer/humanitarian Mia Farrow, known for her pixie crop which burst onto the scene in Roman Polanski’s 1968 film Rosemary’s Baby, when the father of modern hairdressing himself, Vidal Sassoon, famously cut her hair at a jaw dropping cost of $5000.

The precise nature of the pixie cut really accentuated Mia’s beautiful sharp jawline, which is why she is in my top five. This cut made Mia look every bit the Hollywood star that she was and has been a timeless cut throughout the years.

More recently, this cut has been replicated by the likes of Harry Potter actress and the new face of Lancome, Emma Watson, who has followed in the footsteps of the now 66 year old star Mia. Emma carries off this pixie crop incredibly well and proves to us all that even a cut of over forty years old can also look so modern and relevant today.

Styling this look is simple, making it a very practical cut without compromising on style. Simply cleanse the hair with Regis Designline Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. Apply a pea sized amount of Regis Designline Soft Sculpting Glaze to towel dried hair. Soft sculpting glaze is a weightless styler adding a great shine to the hair with a slight hold. Finger dry the hair into shape using a hair dryer.

Once dry, apply a pea sized amount of the Regis Designline Whipped Wax to the hair. Whipped wax is a light, flexible finishing product which will create slight texture to the hair. It isn’t sticky and is in a cream form so your look will not become matted.

Your look is now complete! I’m sure you now look as every bit gorgeous as Mia and Emma themselves!

If you feel the urge to try the pixie cut for yourself, why not visit us at your local Regis salon and we’ll see what we can do!
