A pixie cut is definitely not the wash-and-go type of hairstyle. Maintaining its style and shape requires regular trims and a daily styling routine—something that Maricar Reyes-Poon seems to have already perfected! The actress has been maintaining a pixie cut for years now, and recently, she dyed it in a luminous pink shade.
In a three-minute clip she posted on Instagram, Maricar reveals how she styles her pixie cut on a regular day—including how she keeps her bleached hair looking soft and voluminous. It involves four steps: blow dry, condition, style, and set.
Here are the exact products Maricar uses to style her edgy hairstyle:
1. Ichikami Hair Styling Wax
(Unfortunately, this product is only available in Japan, so you may want to hoard when you're there!)
Maricar uses this to condition her locks after blow-drying. "It controls the buhaghag na ends so mas muhkang buhay 'yong buhok ko."
2. Bench Fix Professional Clay Doh (Hold 5 Shine 1)
"We need a stronger product with more hold," she says, while reaching for this wax. But because it's a bit too sticky, she heats it up with a hairdryer before running it through her hair. "I make sure to put it on the back to create a kind of wave."

3. Butterfly Shadow Hairspray
To seal everything in, Maricar sprays this hairspray on the ends of her strands to "lock in the height of [my] hair."
