The pixie cut as been worn by some of the biggest, most influential celebs throughout fashion and entertainment history. From the fabulous Twiggy to our favorite girl-crush, Scarlett Johansson, this cut is constantly being updated and never seems to go out of style. This season, we’ve already seen some our favorite A-listers going straight to the scissors and making the chop. That’s right, ladies, the pixie cut is back and it can work for many of you.
Pick the Perfect Pixie for You.
Here are some helpful hints! If you have an oval-shaped face, we suggest going with a brilliant and bold cut with short fringe in the front to draw attention to all of your features. If you have a round or heart-shaped face, the goal is to elongate by adding some height at the crown. Wearing your pixie straight with some bold angles will also help add length to the face, while emphasizing your beautiful eyes and cheekbones. If you have a square-shaped face, stylists suggest going for a piecey, textured look to add definition.
One Cut, Endless Options!
While some may think that styling options are limited once you take the plunge, think again! There are several ways you can individualize your look, even when you don’t have long locks. Mix up your pixie by switching between soft bangs and piecey, wispy fringe. Don’t be afraid to add some volume with a curling iron or volumizing spray and hair-dryer! The opportunities for beautiful locks are endless.
Still Not Sold?
You know yourself better than anyone else, so if you think a gamine look is not for you, you are probably right! While we know it can be hard to leave your comfort zone and part with your usual look, you’ll never really know if it’ll work for your lifestyle until you give it a try, and as we always say, it’s ok, it grows back! So if you’ve been thinking making a change or are only now considering a crop, we say take the plunge. Whether you want an edgy Lily Collins-inspired look or a softer, classic ‘do like Faith Hill, there’s a perfect pixie style out there waiting for you!
