First of all, the classic pixie is a style that refuses to date. The iconic cuts worn by model veteran Twiggy or actress Jean Seburg look as current today as they did in the sixties. This season, a host of celebrities have reinvented the crop including Kata Mara, Scarlett Johansson and Lily Collins. So, what better time to brave the chop? you’re certainly in good company!
Here’s what you need to know.
- You feel pretty Bad Ass
Okay, I’m not gonna lie, the amount of girls that come up to you and say ‘wow you are so brave!’ or ‘I would NEVER have the confidence to do that!’, all leaves you feeling pretty bad ass!
- You feel shiny and new
While a trim can have you feeling refreshed, a restyle leaves you totally transformed! What was it Coco Chanel said?.. ‘A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life’. This reinvention is what makes the Pixie Cut perfect for if you are starting a new job or entering a new phase of your life.
- Maintenance is an absolute breeze!
My hair being naturally fine and limp I always found it difficult to style, it always felt a little too undone. With a crop, you can roll out of bed and already feel styled! A little product and you are ready to rock. A streamlined morning routine? Yes please!
- Your clothes WILL look different
When I took my hair from blonde below- the- shoulder locks, to a platinum pixie cut, my wardrobe transformed too. The black leather jacket and boyfriend jeans worn together felt too tomboy-ish. Dresses I had thought looked too try-hard or sexy with my longer hair now looked cool and edgy.
I also find myself choosing more fitting clothes and avoiding looser shapes. I think this is to compenstate for the femininity that you kinda lose when you cut your hair, but come on, change is good!
