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'm liking the Aveda anti-humectant, you only need a really tiny amount to get rid of the crunch & it keeps frizzies at bay. Don't know if it's CG or not though.

Default Just got a pixie cut, ZERO REGRETS!!

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.

After (Cut & Color):

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)

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.

Super cute, MinnesotaMopTop! Your hair is amazingly versatile. The cut and color of the pixie is fabulous! And your kid's expression made me laugh.

Hair always grows! Especially when it's short, it seems to grow really fast. I bet you'll find a stage where it feels great soon. Post pics for us!

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

Thanks anniemae! I have a trim scheduled on Tuesday. I'm not going to go pixie this time, but I definitely need a trim and a shape. My hair seems to grow really fast these days.

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

I am growing out my pixie, and I'm finding that the Aveda Humectant pomade really works well for me now. I have both the Humectant and Anti-Humectant, and the Anti worked great when it was a bit shorter, but as it's gotten a bit longer the Humectant works much better (Anti makes everything go limp and greasy).

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!

Thanks, anniemae! I don't think my hair has even been this straight. It will be fun for the day. Back to curly/wavy tomorrow.

I got lots of compliments on the straight hair at work. I wonder if I'll get any with it curly? Here it is.
