(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?)

    I voted “don’t do it.” I think you look lovely with your current bob. It balances your face very nicely, as you have a narrower face (compared to a chubby-cheeked gal like myself) and the volume frames It well. I think it is way more flattering than a pixie cut would be.

    I think you could rock a pixie, I’ve done a super exaggerated stacked bob before too which is a lot of fun (think Victoria Beckham or  @Miss Leopard:‘s picture).  It would also be a good step for growing out the pixie should you not like it!

    Hope you come back and show us the result!

    Yes! You totally have the cheekbones for a pixie. Because your face is more narrow, maybe consider doing a sightly longer or piecey bang…the very short/spiky/”Mia Farrow” look might be slightly better suited for a heart shaped face. But go for it! I’d maybe ask for a hairstylist who has some experience doing a pixie and come in with some specific pictures you have in mind.

    Yes on pixie.  The only no’s here are people who just don’t like short hair on women thinking it’s boyish.  I have had a pixie now for nearly 2 1/2 years.  Mine’s shorter than your images becaue my hair is wavy and if it’s very short it’s no maintenance rather than “fixing” the longer pieces.

    @aliciapdx:  I would agree with you.

    I have nothing against a pixie in particular on YOU. I just dislike all pixies, for everyone. Forever.

    Unless you look like Halle Berry.

    Another vote for yes. You have amazing bone structure, and I think it would look especially great with your glasses!

    I think it would look great! I know a few people with similar-ish facial structures who have had pixies and it looked really cute on them

    @Miss Leopard:  Well then you didn’t read OP’s post:

    I’m not interested in if you personally like pixie haircuts or not. I know a lot of people don’t like them at all on principle of them not being feminine. I love them, but I’m having trouble visualizing myself in one.”

    I think you would look AMAZING with a pixie cut! Get one and then come back and share the pictures! I wish I had the bone structure to carry a pixie.

    I’m not interested in having a semantics discussion. The thread title is “Can I honestly pull of a pixie haircut?” and my opinion (which this thread is asking for) is that no one can pull it off. Unless you look like Halle Berry.

    I’m actually contemplating the same thing (I go on Wednesday – eep). I hope you went for it. I think it will look fabulous on you!
