I think short hair like that makes chesty girls look even MORE top heavy.

@lenabee:  +1.  it is all about the face.  even or symmetrical features are key for short, short hairstyles because all of your face is exposed.

@howtobeawife:  i am not a stick figure by any means and i wear a pixie cut.  i am curvy and have a reasonable sized chest.  i don’t think my haircut has ever made my boobs look any bigger.  (that’s what tight tops are for).

@howtobeawife:  What matters the most is the shape of your face and head. 

I’ve seen plenty of curvy (I’m talking about actual curves), chubby, and heavy ladies with pixie cuts, and many of them looked great. 

It’s really not the body that matters.

Also, it’s best to not base what does and does not look good on what celebrities wear. Here’s why: celebrities and their stylists don’t usually make the trends, they follow them, and the people who started the trend don’t usually look like the celebrities. The people who start the trends are usually ethnic minorities who have more style, culture, personality, and better, more varied bodies than the celebrities and their stylists could ever hope to have.

what? no, that’s ridiculous! I’ve seen plenty of cute women of all shapes and sizes with short hair. the pixie is pretty universally flattering too. I think it’s all about how you style yourself.

It’s about face shape and not your chest. a big chest is a big chest with short OR long hair.

It’s not even about your size OR face shape. 

It’a about the RIGHT pixie cut for your face. Talk to a great hairdresser.

It just depends. I love pixie cuts, but it would never work on me. I’m thin, but my face is just, I don’t know – too round? I once had my hair cut chin length years ago and it was NOT flattering on me. I know plenty of people that arent thin with flat chests that rock pixie cuts. Like PP said, it depends on your face.

@MissCaraMia:  That’s true. It is about having the right cut for your features, too.

Jennifer Lawrence isn’t flat chested, nor is Anne Hathaway.

I am chubby and I have had all different hair lengths – from shaved (for a cancer fundraiser) down to the middle of my back. I actually don’t mind how I look with a shaved head (although my SO keeps telling me not to shave my head no matter how annoyed I get with my hair!).

The big thing is choosing the right style pixie cut. So you have long bangs (Ginnifer Goodwin), very short bangs (Anne Hathaway), spiked pixie (eg. Morena Baccarin, Alyssa Milano), sideswept no banks (Emma Watson), etc.

I don’t think it makes people look top heavy but some people choose styles that don’t suit their faces, so look at the face shape and choose a style that fits your face.

howtobeawife:  DEFINITELY face shape. I am 5’6″, athletic/slim build, but I do have my curves!! I get complete strangers complimenting me on my hair every day. I say DO it!
