What better way to beat the summer heat than by getting a chic, stylish cut like Cameron Diaz's? We got the low-down on this look Nick Penna, owner and lead stylist of “Best of Boston” SalonCapri. Here's how to rock it:

Begin this look in the shower with a protein-spiked shampoo for extra strength and shine. Nick swears by Kerastase Nutritive Bain Satin Complete Nutrition Shampoo, which adds extra nutrients into your looks and leaves hair soft and shiny with a lightweight finish. 

Before blowdrying, run a volumizer through your hair using your fingers. Nick likes Shu Uemura’s Fiber Life Protective Volumizer for natural shine, lasting support, and protection from heat and external agressors.

Use a round brush for the smoothest blow out. Nick’s tip: blow-dry small sections of hair, beginning at the back of your head. This section is always the dampest, so tackle it first and then move to the front. 

This look is all about how you style the cut. As you grow out your pixie cut, ask your stylist to add extra texture, so you can play up your hair’s layers and angles with your blow-dry and brush. 

To finalize this look, you’ll want to use a weightless spray to define and hold. Nick’s go to spray, Shu Uemura’s Sheer Lacquer Finishing Spray, won’t disappoint!
