As summer draws nearer we begin the search for short hair that is easy to style and keeps itself off our necks in the sweaty summer months. As seen on celebrities such as Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, Pink and Mandy Moore over the years, the pixie cut seems to be a popular cut to go to when you’re willing to hack off a lot of hair. However, unlike popular beliefs, this haircut is not for everyone and it’s good to make sure that you really want to go that short before it’s too late. Read a little about it in this article!
First of all the pixie cut isn’t a cut that suits everyone. If you have a heart-shaped, oval, square or diamond face you’re good to go. Alas those with different face shapes will have to think about this some more or ask for advice from a local hairdresser. If it does suit you I suggest you go for it, people who have already gotten a pixie cut say that this haircut gives a lift to the face and attracts more focus to facial features that wouldn’t be noticed otherwise.
Another misconception about this cut and many short haircuts is that one can easily wash their hair and dash out the door, and if you have a styling team living in your hair this might be true, but for the majority of us it isn’t. When adopting the pixie cut make sure that you know what you’re going for, unlike other haircuts, when the hair starts to grow it doesn’t look all that neat so visits to the hairdresser have to be made every six to eight weeks to keep the cut in shape.
On the positive side, short haircuts are ideal when you’ve got burnt hair from too much styling and are willing to start fresh. While cutting your hair is liberating, keep in mind that having your hair cut takes around an hour but growing it back takes from four to six months, to even two years, depending on the hair, so make sure you’re prepared to wait.
