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

    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?)

    I think it would look nice on you, I’ve had short hair a few times…never again. More work than longer hair, I had to put on extra make up so not to feel like a boy.

    I have to say I like the dark hair on you better then the light.

    @Minnow:  I really preferred the sideburns cut around the ears. I’m sure you could have your stylist cut it in stages, though. Start with some longer, wispy pieces like JLaw’s and see what you think. Have fun tomorrow!

    @Minnow:  What about long in the front and razored short in the back like a bob?

     

    I’m just not a fan of super short hair on many women. I echo the PP’s that said Halle Berry is the only person who actually looks better that way. Short hair can be really cute and sexy, but super-short pixie can go boyish very quickly.

    I think you could rock it! My one question is whether your wedding has already passed? I’m also growing out my hair for my wedding, I just worry if you DON’T like it you won’t have a lot of options on that day.

    If you grew it out for the wedding and now the wedding is over, I’d say it’s time for the PWC!

    @Minnow:  I think a pixie would look good on you. You look good with the current length as well, but I think you are right that longer hair weighs your facial features down/covers them up too much.

     

    Also, I think every woman who wants one should have a pixie at least once in her life.

    I had very long hair my entire life, and it was a pain in the ass to wash, style, and take care of. It took too much work, and so I usually just ended up putting it up in a ponytail or bun.

     

    I got a pixie cut as a junior in college, and I LOVED it. Most people thought it was great on me, but some people hated it (like my mother). A few other girls I knew got pixie cuts a few months after me, which was a little weird but flattering. 

     

    It was easy to maintain day to day, but it requires very frequent, religious trims to keep it looking good and not frumpy. I loved how fast it dried, and that I could add a little product, tousle, and be done.

     

    My head is very small and flat in the back as well, but I have very dainty features so the pixie really worked for me. I think you have very nice bone structure and eyes, which a pixie would highlight nicely.

     

    The nice thing about hair that short is that if you aren’t crazy about the exact style of pixie, you can change it within  a month or so when you get a trim!

     

    Only downside: if/when you decide to grow it back out, the transition SUCKS and you really do have to get extra trims to prevent having a mullet.

    @Minnow:  I had a pixie cut for four years, and while they’re nice and easy, they get boring FAST.  The only reason I had it for so long is because the growing out process is such a pain in the ass and you really have no choice but to have REALLY bad hair for a good few months (and my hair grows very quickly, so probably longer for most people).  Anyway, I knew what it looked like if I let it grow out, so I kept cutting it, even though I was tired of it, I just got stuck.  Finally when I knew I was getting married in two years, I sucked it up because I knew I wanted to be able to do something nice with my hair for the wedding.
