3.Chic Disconnected Cut
This one is almost a cross between a textured bob and a pixie. Marina Fichera, owner of Marina Salon in Chicago said that she approaches most pixie haircuts in a similar way as this one above, cutting the sides and back before deciding where to go with the top section.
She added that in this particular haircut, she took a horseshoe section and cut the back and sides pretty short, and left the remaining hair longer, cutting it into a bob shape. It’s a little edgy but still very soft, she said.
Adding that this is probably her favorite haircut to do. Even if you’re keeping the final look of the hair more conservative, it allows for more creative liberties.

She then used fusio dose protein treatment by kerastase (concentre vita ciment/booster shine) after the gloss, and then dried with Uemura Shu – Straightforward blow dry oil and styled with Shu Uemura Uzu Cotton for volume, texture and shape.
7. Great for Curly Hair

To her, the bold color and angled haircut enhance the wave by drawing the eyes to the individual tendrils.
Also, cutting the hair shorter in the back and longer in the front creates major volume and movement through the back and keeps “safe” length around her face, and it draws her profile up for a more flattering silhouette.
