Bees, ever since emma Watson cut her hair into that tiny, adorable, pixie — I’ve wanted one. At the time I was telling myself to wait because “what if I get engaged?”, “I gotta think about my wedding look”, etc. Anyway, the wedding is over, it is a few years later, and I felt braver than ever. So what if I hate it? Or worse, look hideous? I decided I could buy a wig and wear hats! So I took the plunge… And am so happy I did.
Here’s my pixie make over from waist-long hair to true pixie.

Have any of you done a short pixie? Can you share any pros and cons of a pixie versus long hair? Thanks!

I love the pixie on you. I wish I had the balls to do that. I did have a huge post wedding chop, but went from loooong to a chin length bob. One day I shall pixie….

I’ve always wanted to chop all my hair off, but it’s thick and wavy naturally and I don’t think it would work very well.
you look amazing with short hair and I love the way you can style it up

QueenSP11: you look gorgeous! So chic! I’ve always wanted a pixie but I have extremely curly hair so I don’t think it would work on me. On you it looks amazing though!

Looks great! I love love love short hair. You can get up and go and don’t have to do anything. Only con is that you have to keep your eyebrows well under control haha but looks like you don’t have that problem.

QueenSP11: LOVE LOVE LOVE! It really brightens your face and makes your eyes look huge. I have always wanted a pixie but I have really curly hair. Just as a side note, that photo bomber in the “before” pic is epic!

Thanks everyone! I have a lot of really thick hair so it’s a little difficult trying to keep it flat down lol. Product has become my new best friend. My hair also grows sooo fast, this haircut’s upkeep is gonna be expensive :(. But I love the change. I really believe everyone should try it at least once in their lifetime!
rosegoldgirl: thank you! I’ve seen some pixies work with curly, but the type of pixie really matters otherwise I imagine it would just be puffy. Product becomes essential!
Dogsbody92: if I had less hair (and not as thck) it may be as easy as just getting up and going. Unfortunately I have to “try” to do my hair every day now versus when it was long otherwise it is out of control!
Olivepepper: I was going to be safe and stick to an angled bob, but I thought better now than later. Hair will grow after all and I’m not getting any younger 😛

QueenSP11: I love it – you look so hot with the pixie!! I agree with you: everyone should try it at least once.
My hair’s currently about one inch long, so I’ve got a super short pixie. In high school, I went from a chin-length bob to a pixie, and I’ve never looked back! My hair is thick like yours, so some days it has a mind of its own…If I’m feeling daring, I’ll sort of spike it up. You should try it!

QueenSP11: I absolutely love it! It gives you an edge where as the long hair was very sweet and innocent. The spike hair pic is super duper fly! Glad you went for it!

QueenSP11: It looks great on you! This is not a style that everyone can pull off.
I had a pixie thru my early 20’s and I loved it! Here’s my list:
Pro: Practically zero care, Money saved on product, TIME (seriously, so much time!)
Con: sometimes I felt kinda boyish, there’s like 2 ways to do it differently, you have to style it (no getting out of bed and putting it in a messy bun then heading out)
