Being afraid of a pixie cut is understandable. When you cut off the majority of your hair, there’s no curtain to hide behind if you have a huge zit or have missed your latest eyebrow appointment. You’re on display for the world to see. If short hair doesn’t suit you, your options are limited for at least 18 to 20 months until it grows back.
The good news is that with the right style, a pixie cut can suit anyone. The rule used to be that unless you had a heart or oval shaped face, a pixie cut probably wasn’t for you. Now, thanks to countless A-list celebrities demonstrating just how flattering a pixie cut can be, we know there’s a style for all faces – oval, round, square, diamond, oblong, pear and rectangle. For example, if you have a round face you should look to Ginnifer Goodwin for inspiration. Round faces need more volume on top to balance out the look. If you have a long face or larger forehead, you’ll want to go for a pixie cut with a side swept fringe.
A pixie cut is a huge commitment, but you’re in good company: Rihanna, Michelle Williams, Victoria Beckham, Anne Hathaway, Ruby Rose, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Lawrence. If you’re still unsure, just think of all the time you will save by not blow drying your hair.
Bottom line: If it’s good enough for Bad Gal RiRi, it’s good enough for me.
