I am considering, yet again, going in for the full chop to a pixie. But I have a few questions.
- Are pixie cuts going out of fashion now or are they still “in”?
- Who has the better pixie cut: Jennifer Lawrence or Ginnifer Goodwin? Or do you prefer a different celeb over both of those?
- If you’ve had a pixie cut before, will you please post pictures and pros/cons of it?

I’m rocking a Jennifer Lawrence pixie without those weird sideburny things she had at one point. I love it. I get it cleaned up tomorrow. I went from hair that was mid-back to a short cut because I was shedding like a dog and needed my hair to look nice while it was recovering. Best decision ever!
Here’s a pic of my hair-spiration!

LilRhodyGem: Super cute! Do you have highlights to accent it or just one color?

I went from dark brown to a light brown base with blonde highlights. So she foils most of my top, part of my back and then does color application of the base color where there are no foils and at the back of my head. I’m going to ask her to put in some platinum pieces tomorrow when I see her to really just up the WOW factor and make it very summery.
I’m a bit shaggy looking right now so I’m really excited about the cut and color tomorrow. Yahoo! I hope more people chime in. Short hair can be a lot of fun.

I’ve had a pixie cut for 2 1/2 years now and LOVE IT. I started out with a Ginnfer Goodwin inspired cut first and while it was super cute, I felt like it made my face look rounder. Then I went for more of a Jennifer look and absolutely loved it. It’s so easy and fun to style. Now I’ve buzzed everything but the top of my head and that’s permed, so I’ve been all over the map!
But to answer your questions I don’t see pixie cuts as a trend. Maybe for a while I could’ve seen it, but now I feel like I see equal amounts of women rocking all kinds of styles. So I wouldn’t be considered about that. And even for some reason if it were to go out of style why worry if you look great? Pros are definitely the ease and fun, cons would be that you have to get your hair cut often! Otherwise it starts getting a mullety shape and just looks unpolished. I hope that helps! 🙂

1. I think they will always sort of be a classic go-to haircut for women who want something different and super short.
2. Ginnifer Goodwin
3. I’ve done a few different pixies (sorry, don’t have a picture… :/) Similar to
(except in my natural blonde)
Then I had something like this for a while
except I died it black…and it was shorter than this. It was actually really cute.
Pros: Easy to style (actually I didn’t style, just wash and go, or add a little product occasionally) and cute. I think the biggest pro is that confidence boost you get sometimes with a new, totally different haircut.
Cons: Really sucks to grow out and there are some really unattractive grow-out stages. It takes something like 2 years to get your hair shoulder length again. Also, I felt very cute, but never sexy or beautiful. Biggest con: missing the beautiful, long hair you used to have that will now take 5 years to grow back.
Good luck! 🙂

This is my haircut
I love my hair. I have to get it trimmed every few weeks, and I have to ‘do’ my hair everyday (I have super curly hair which I hat), but other than that, it’s really very easy.

I went and got a Ginnifer Goodwin pixie cut a while back, and would have stuck with it had I not gotten engaged. I’ve grown my hair out for the wedding but am going straight back to a pixie afterwards, as I’m sick of doing it.
I like Goodwin’s pixie more than Lawrence’s for me, as I wanted something with a more natural and less edgy look for myself. That being said, I have a friend who has an edgy pixie and it is gloooorious.

MrsRevolutionize: I like the way you describe the difference between the two. That’s helpful as I think about what style I want to have. I think I like the idea of it being more natural and less edgy.

pixies will never go out of style if you ask me. i’ve had every type of hair style and the pixie is my favorite.
i love ginnifer goodwin’s pixie and the last 2 times i’ve had my haircut i’ve taken pictures of her to show my stylist.
cons- it can look a little unkempt when it grows out, but you just need to play with it a lot to find new ways to style it. if you want to maintain the super short length you’ll need frequent haircuts. it CAN be a pain to grow out, but it really depends on you/your hair. my hair grows very fast and i don’t like long hair, so the awkward phase of growing out my pixie doesn’t last long and i have no problem cutting it as it grows. but if you want long hair and you want it NOW, then it’s going to take a lot of patience.
pros- so fast and easy and fun! very versatile- i can spike it, comb it forward, to the back, or to the side. i can straighten it or just put a bit of product in and let it air dry. i love it. if it matters, i have curly hair, but it really doesn’t take any time to straighten it. a lot of people tell me that they can’t have a pixie cut because their hair is curly/wavy and they’re very suprised when i tell them that i have naturally curly hair.

howtobeawife: I think that pixie cuts will always be in fashion to some degree. I think they definitely have more lasting power than “the Rachel” etc.
I absolutely loathe the style Jennifer Lawrence went with, and think that Ginnifer Goodwin’s pixie is divine. So, obviously I went the more Ginnifer route.
Pros: easy to style, takes about 5 minutes to go from soaking wet to perfectly styled. Got so many compliments. Felt more feminine than ever before. Was so nice in the hot weather.
Cons: Have to style it EVERY day. There was no putting the hair back in a ponytail or just dusting in some baby powder or dry shampoo. Sleep absolutely cannot be undone by anything but a new shampoo. Also, having to go in for trims so much to keep it from looking shaggy. Also, should you decide to grow it out, get ready for a year and a half of agonizingly awkward lengths and styles.

I have always wanted to cut all my hair off, but never been brave enough as it’s super thick and wavy, and I have no idea how it would react to being chopped!
if you do get it cut post pictures!

I have had a few variations of the pixie for a year now and I love it! I might never have long hair again. Right now, I am rocking the undercut and one side of my head and part of the back is shaved down very short. I have a side part with asymmetrical layers coming down on the other side to my chin.
NO CONS FOR ME.
Easy and quick to style, I blow dry it and run some pomade through it to mess it up.
I wash it every 3-4 days and it holds its style without looking greasy.
I feel powerful and sexy. It’s nice to have something so different and not look like everyone else. It makes me feel so confident.
I get a ton of compliments.
I say go for it. Work with your stylist and find the pixie that WORKS FOR YOU.
