How To Style The Boyfriend – Step By Step
With shorter hairstyles, the slightest change to your styling can make a huge impact. We love how our style The Boyfriend gives an instant high-end chic to your look. We want to help you achieve this fashion-forward style for yourself, ensuring you’ll be the envy of the high street.
Step 1 : Pick Your Perfect Colour
With short, bold cuts your colour can really make a bold statement, creating shapes and movement within the intricate layers of the cut. Whether you’re a blonde, brunette or redhead you can enhance your pixie crop’s colour vibrancy with Wella ILLUMINA, adding light-reflecting dimensions to your style.
Step 2 : Get A Flawless Cut
When creating a pixie style you need to trust in the professionals – our stylists pride themselves on knowing what’s right for every guest, so you can be sure your look is perfectly tailored to suit you. It’s important to use your free consultation with your Regis stylist to find out the hairstyle that’s going to make you feel as great as you look!
Step 3 : Set Your Style
Now that you’ve taken care of the colour and cut the foundation for The Boyfriend is complete. Now it’s time to perfect your styling, and your product choice. We used the TIGI Party Pack to ensure the style not only has hold, but has that gloss and sparkle for an instant evening look.
Sweep the front sections of your hair backwards with a fine-toothed comb, tucking behind the air and smoothing down any flyaways. Use a smoothing spray or serum like TIGI Headrush to help smooth and straighten the look, smoothing the product into the hair with your hands. Repeat this process on the opposite side, leaving any fringe or front layers free to style separately.
Now style the front section however you like, slicked back for a more androgynous look, or left in front to frame your face. This is where the versatility of the style comes into play, allowing you to decide how extreme you want the look to be.
Step 4 : Spray And Seal
Of course, your style wouldn’t be complete without locking it into place. We used our TIGI Masterpiece hairspray to seal the look in place, spraying in circular motions to give great hold with no clumps or stickiness.
And that’s it! Easy, versatile and endlessly flattering, this pixie styling will see you through any occasion with fashion-forward and effortless style.
