The Year of Pixie Cuts!

Pixie cuts started to catch a wave about a year ago in Hollywood and still have lots of ladies pondering the thought of cutting it all off! And, when they do, they either love it or hate it.

Why are pixie cuts loved by so many but worn by so few? The answer is simple . . . it’s the fear of the unknown, and the amount of time it will take to grow it back if you don’t like it.  It’s a big commitment to cut your hair short. What if you hate it, there’s nowhere to hide? There’s not a lot of hair styling options to go to if you don’t like it so short, so should you risk it?

So what should you consider before taking the plunge to a pixie haircut? A good hairdresser, especially one that knows you and your quirks, can help you tremendously. Not only can a good hairdresser help decipher if a pixie cut is right for your face shape and body proportions, but equally important, if this short style suits your personality.

Face Shape

  • Oval face shapes are ideal for pixie cuts, but other face shapes can work as well. Modifications of layering and styling to the pixie cut can be made to balance with many face shapes. Heart shaped faces are second only to oval face shapes. If the chin –line is dramatically tapered it can be offset with flicked up pieces behind the ears. Round face shapes can be balanced by creating more height on top, longer pieces to the neckline, or wisps on the face. An oblong face shape can be balanced by adding full bangs and creating texture or fullness on the sides.

 

Pixie Haircut, Short Haircut or Mid-Length Haircut

  • Temper any rash decision to cut all your hair off! Cutting off all your hair is not an answer to frustrations. Discuss it with your hairdresser; bring in pictures of short cuts and pixie cuts you like. Also bring in some alternative haircuts you would consider. Sometimes going shorter in stages is a better option and may be altogether easier on your well-being.

Pixie cuts top the charts when it comes to quick and easy hairstyles. What could be easier with little maintenance, almost no drying time, and less styling time? This has to add up to why women are loving this cut! But, one more way you can check out if you might like the pixie cut before taking the plunge –  stop at the mall and try on a similar short wig. It won’t necessarily be the exact result you will get, but it will give you a good enough idea!
