(Closed) Help! Can I (honestly) pull off a pixie haircut?

  • poll: Can I pull off the long-on-top/fauxhawk/messy pixie?

    Yes! Do it!

    It would be so-so.

    Keep your current haircut!

    Definitely do NOT get a pixie.

    Get a different haircut entirely! (Please include a picture?)

    @canarydiamond:  +1. Then again, that’s what I usually think about women with extremely short hair. We’ll, except Halle Barry. Stunning model types can do whatever they want and look better than the rest of us 😛

    OP, it’s also a lot of maintenance and I happen to like your hair now.

    Could you try a wig on? as in a proper genuine hair fitted wig? might give you a better idea and help you visualize yourself with that cut.

    Personally, I think you’d rock it, you have great small features which are exactly what this type of cut requires. Dont worry about the back of your head, this cut will give you volume wherever you’d need it. Im betting it’d be adorable on you.

    best of luck and keep us filled in!

    @MrsPanda99:  Halle Berry pops into my head too as probably the one female on earth who looks better with short hair than long. She is so feminine looking that it just works.

    I think others can pull it off as well, but not sure about OP… especially if she has doubts now. When I had short hair it was a nightmare to grow it (I had a bleaching mishap a number of year ago and fried my hair lol).

    @Minnow:  Go for it! I had super short hair about 5 years ago and this thread is reeeally making me want to go that route again. So tempting but I know I’d regret not having my long hair for the wedding.  Maybe next year…. 🙂

    I think you would look great with a pixie cut! I would definitely do the one with longer bangs though. Just as a warning though, my hairstylist told me that people think pixie cuts are an easy no hassle hairstyle, but depending on your hair it is the type of cut that you HAVE to style and fix everyday for it to look good. A lot of people with pixie cuts can’t just run a comb through it and go. Something to think about depending on how much time you’re willing to invest.

    I have a short pixie and I love it! It will take sone adjustment and it’s a big change but if you want to do it, I say it’s just hair and it will grow back. I will agree with some PPs though that makeup may be in order to keep the look feminine. I know that I wear more makeup consistently now with short hair than I did with long.

    The very second I saw your photo my first thought was “Yes!!” 

    A pixie cut would be perfect for you.

    A pixie that’s long in the front will look fabulous on you! Not even remotely boyish. My hair is too thin to cut short, so I have wigs for when I want to change my hair, but you’re lucky enough that you can chop off your hair and still look awesome.

    I think you could pull it off. I do like the way your longer bangs look better than the shorter ones you had in that picture of you with dark hair. Pixie’s are soooo much easier to style! I had one for probably two years and I loved how quick I could get ready. The only thing I didn’t like about the pixie was that I felt like I always had to have makeup on to look more feminine. I also had quite the dilemma when I first chopped my hair off over how to style the sideburns….to the tune of like 6 haircuts until I got it right hahaha. That being said, I found the style that I liked best was to have some shorter sideburns and then cut around the ear. When my hair started to get longer, I could tuck my sideburns behind my ear and I liked that too. I did the faux hawk once for a wedding and I thought it was pretty – not something I could acheive on my own though. I don’t want to spam you with pictures but I found some old ones to show you what I mean. The first one is clearly from the wedding. The second one is when my hair was a bit longer and I could tuck my “sideburns” behind my ears. The tiny one was when I had the sideburns cut above my ears. If you look at that picture of you with blonde hair and glasses and just kind of hold your finger over the longer hair, I think it looks really similar to a pixie – and I think it looks really good on you! Good luck!

    @taylor15220:  I agree that cutting around the ears can be crucial to this kind of cut.
