So I've been contemplating for a long time now on getting a Pixie hair cut. I would want something a bit razored in the back so I could **bleep** it if I wanted and then long layered bangs in the front. Im not talking like past my chin long type of bang, but lower the my eyebrow across my forehead type bang. I wanted to see if any of you have gotten this hair cut and what you think about it. I have thick hair so that could be something that could make it look different and suitable for me...but who know?! What are the pro's and cons ladies? Oh p.s.! I currently have about shoulder length hair Thank you!
Re: Pixie cut[ Edited ]
If your hair is thick, the more layers, the better, this will break up the look and thin down the texture so the cut isn't so dense and compact around your face.
Razoring can be damaging on hair if the proper tools aren't used or if the razors/shears are dull, as with the razoring technique it goes aginst the strands of the hair rather than across. It'll be crucial to be sure your hair is properly conditioned and treated after and to maintain overall health.
Lreagan posted a thread not long ago about her pixie cut where I gave tips on styling and different reference photos you might find helpful if you decide to take the plunge:
Here are also some more reference photos for longer/razored pixie cuts!
Re: Pixie cut
I think you should totally do it! I peeked at your pics, and looks like you have a great facial structure to pull it off. Blonde goes great with pixie cuts. I used to have spikey short hair (above ears) about 5 years ago. Very manageable, and easy to style. Although I did miss my locks and started to grow it out. The grow out phase isn't as bad as everyone says it is. Just style it different with barrets, pins, headbands, etc when you decide to grow it out IF you go short. The PROS: easy to manage, dries quicker, stylish, great for the summer when its hot. The CONS: Occasionally I got mistaken for a boy (depends on clothing), there will be periods of remorse (missing your longer locks), frequent trims to keep the shape.
I don't think I will EVER go back to having a spikey "porcupine" like hairstyle, but would consider the pixie cut
Re: Pixie cut
Thank you for saying I have the "face shape" for it, that was very kind of you I did cut it into a dramatic bob about two years ago and its taking FOREVER to grow out! But Im just not a big styling hair girl. Its a pain in my keaster and is so expensive to keep up with the cost of highlights and dye....ugh. I am MUCH more of a makeup girl haha. However Im in theater and as crazy as it sounds, having long hair can be better for you :/ Oh well. But anyways, thank you for the advice and Ill be sure to post pics if I do it!
