Many believe pixie cuts lack versatility, a myth your Under The Dryer (UDT) team plans to debunk with a slew of edgy styles from Urban Chic's pixie queen Tanya Daniels.

Here's the back story... years ago, Daniel's mother struggled to find a stylist who could deliver the perfect cut, she enlisted her then 18-year-old daughter [Tanya] as the guinea pig. So fascinated was her daughter that she, too, took the decision to 'master the cut'. Family members and friends became her own 'wig stands' as she honed her skills. Her dedication has paid off as today, Tanya Daniels is known as the pixie queen of Portmore, St Catherine.

“Pixie cuts are trending right now,” shared Daniels. “Naturally I'm happy as it keeps me on my toes.” There are many reasons to give this cut a try, she continued. “It's expressive, practical and the perfect way to make a statement.”

Based on the satisfied clients at Urban Chic she's definitely in demand.
