Pixie cuts first became a trend in the 1960’s thanks largely to Twiggy and Mia Farrow. In an era where women’s hair was still considered sacred, it took guts to go against the mainstream. But with their delicate features, each looked so gorgeous that other women followed suit and a trend was born.
In recent years, dozens of celebrities have sported their own interpretations of the classic pixie cut with varying degrees of success. Stars such as Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Hudson, have given the look a whirl. Some, like Ellen Degeneres have made it their signature look. There’s no question that it makes daily styling a lot easier, but you need a certain confidence in yourself to wear a pixie, an “I’m comfortable in my skin” mentality to pull the look off successfully. You’ll want to adjust your makeup as well, to play up your best features.
Most importantly, you need to find a stylist who understands the idiosyncracies of your hair, such as cowlicks, texture, etc., to ensure you’ll get a cut that works best with your features and your type of hair. That’s half the battle. Finding a top hairstylist from a 5 star salon in your area is a must. Don’t entrust the look to a run-of-the-mill hair salon. Find someone who’s skills you trust and stick with them for maintenance, because a pixie requires maintenance cuts every four to six weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows.
