It looks great! I'd love to see it wavy too.

I'm growing out my pixie, so it's pixie-ish now but still really short. Does anyone use a pomade to SOTC with their long-ish pixie? Since my hair is so short, the wave just kinda sit on the top of my head until I SOTC but then the waves fall flat. Any suggestions?

I've almost never posted here, but I'm just so thrilled I had to share my new haircut

I have rather fine, thin hair which seems to be a combination of 2A, 2B, and 3B if that's even possible? Once I realized about 3 years ago that I'm curly (yeah, I spent YEARS straightening what I thought was just un-stylable wavy frizz), I always wore it in variations of a bob or angled bob, but decided to get bolder and go for more of a pixie cut this month for my 5th wedding anniversary. I LOVE IT! My hair seems so much thicker, it's super easy to style, and tons of fun. It looks great all tousled up, so even bed-head looks awesome the moment I wake up. Gotta love it!

Before1 - this was too long, it was very thin and got stringy too easily within a few hours of styling.

Before2 - my angled bob. It was about nape-length in the back. I really loved this cut too, but I was ready for a change.

I LOVE MY NEW HAIR!

I can scrunch while it's wet if I want to get more curls/waves, or wear it smoother if I prefer. I love how easy it is to work with, and so far I don't have any problems with feeling too "boyish" as long as I wear some nice eye makeup and pretty earrings (plus the adorable curls in front of my ears are totally girly)
goldencurly and Devushka like this.
i love pixies. i got mine cut real short in the summer to a "halle berryish" pixie. but no spikes it took 5 min to wash and dry . soo easy and lots of compliments.BUT i just dont feel like me. when i take off my makeup i want to cry. i look like a boy. i cant just laze around makeupless.... so, while i dont regret cutting it im back to growing out. i have about 1/2 inch on the side and bottom of the back . the rest is a bit longer. its to long to wear as a pixie but very short. ' anyway i have been wearing fancier scarves and trying to get it to form a curl. looks ok as it grows.although its only been a weekas i said i loved it but it wasnt me.hope it grows fast.

Is 70's retro still in fashion? I can see a short shag like this working with more curls than in the pic.

Good luck with the trim. Please show us pictures. You're lucky - I feel like mine takes forever to grow.

Hi, how did the trim go?

Before and after. Hardly a pixie--more like a bob!

I'll post a pic once I wash and style it curly. I'm going to try to get 2nd day hair out of this!
