Pixie cut

Hey lovelies Smiley Happy

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? Smiley Happy Oh p.s.! I currently have about shoulder length hair Smiley Happy Thank you!

Re: Pixie cut

I've had a pixie cut numerous times and I've found that it's the best to do it in the summer because it keeps the back of your neck cool and it's quick to dry off when wet. However, I have incredibly thick curly frizzy hair so I noticed that even though it was easier to manage I still had to style it everyday or it would look like a mini poof ball. So just keep in mind it's still a little maintenance depending on what type of hair you have. Plus you'll have to keep it clean and lined up in the back of its super short. But over all I loved it and if you have higher more prominent bone structure it'll bring out your cheek and jaw bones and you'll look like a model darling I say go for it 😉 

Re: Pixie cut

I got a pixie about nine months ago and it was absolutely lovely! I got mine cut very short in the back with bangs across my forehead and trimmed it myself when the back started to grow out. My hair grows super, SUPER fast though, so despite my best efforts of chopping and razoring, it's true pixie glory didn't last long, which can definitely be a con because the growing out phase is awkward looking. Right now I have this somewhat silly looking mane like that falls to the top of my spine and is very choppy.

 

Basically, if you think you'll look good, go for it! The only forseeable problem will be getting trims and such and growing it out if you ever want to.

Re: Pixie cut

You trimmed your back?? it's always my issue. I love the back to be almost buzzed but scared to do it.

Re: Pixie cut

The cut was easy to style & take care of.  It was super fun too. I found I had to get it trimmed every couple of weeks which wasn't too bad. The colour was the thing that had the most up-keep but the cut itself was awesome.  I think a pixie will really compliment the shape of your face.

Re: Pixie cut

I am growing out a pixie cut right now. I decided I wanted to do something fun with my hair before I finished school. I had long very red hair before. I loved my pixie but it took a lot of up-keep and I'm in a wedding in October so I'm trying to grow it out.

P.S. Ignore the old VHS tape in the background! Lol!000_1612.JPG

Re: Pixie cut

I am on Month 16 of growing out my pixie cut, and it's just now grazing the tip of my collar.  I have had so many people say it was a great cut on me, so I would be I'll go back to it at some point.  My advice?  Get a picture of a style you like from all sides, take it to your stylist, and make sure they can do it exactly like it.  Be prepared to get a trim every 3-4 weeks to maintain its shape.  I missed ponytails and having options of styles but growing it out is NOT easy.  

Re: Pixie cut

Pixie cuts are beautiful! Everyone suggested great ones. My only peice of advice is becareful who cuts it. If you have a hairstylist you always love, make sure she does it. If you don't have a set stylist, ask around, call and ask who has the most experience, and who does alot of pixie style cuts, Cause i'm a hairstylist, but i'm not great at pixie cuts, and i'll say it upfront, but some won't, it might not be their thing but they will just do it anyways, and it might not come out great. I hope you love it!!

Re: Pixie cut

Thats a great point to make! Smiley Happy 

Re: Pixie cut

Good tip, Ariela! Asking detail oriented questions like that is the best way to guarantee someone's got the best person working on them! Not to mention if someone isn't the best at razoring it could end up damaing strands. Smiley Frustrated

Re: Pixie cut

YES! So many things can go wrong! It's best to get a consult on it, make sure they know what you want. I know too many Stylist who don't care what the client wants, they do their own thing.

Re: Pixie cut

Oh, I forgot to mention! I took a picture of Ginner Goodwin to my stylist when I went in for my pixie cut. I love her haircut and really wanted something similar.

RE: Re: Pixie cut

I took her pic, too! Such a good cut.

Re: Pixie cut

I went through this exact same thing about 2 months ago! I've always had long hair and hated it, but never had the courage to cut it off. I finally worked up the courage and got a pixie cut a couple months ago and I LOVE it. I wish I had done it sooner! I was really scared because I have a massive cowlick and thought it would look awful, but you can't even tell it's there!

 

This is what my pixie cut looks like:

Re: Pixie cut

I love it, Lreagan!!!!!!! It really frames your face well and brings so much focus to your eyes!!! As soon as I saw this thread I thought back to your's and even linked it so Broadwaybarbie could have some product references!

Re: Pixie cut

Awww, thank you! That's really sweet. Smiley Happy I love my short hair and never want to go back, LOL.

Re: Pixie cut

It looks really good on you, and I love your hair color!

Re: Pixie cut

My hair color is probably one of my favorite things about myself, haha. I've never dyed my hair or done any harsh treatments to it and my stylist always raves about how soft it is and how it's precious virgin hair, LOL.

Re: Pixie cut

That's amazing, it picks up light so well on the color, great, natural dimension!

Re: Pixie cut

You are so darling and this cut looks INCREDIBLY fantastic on you! Smiley Happy You're making me want to run out and get it right now!
