Can we have a pixie cut thread?

Like Tree13Likes

There have been so many threads recently on pixie cuts--those who want one, those who got one. I'd love to see them all in once place! Who wants to play? Feel free to post pixies you have or would like to have or even those that you just admire from afar.

I just got my hair cut short about a month ago, and I am tempted to go even shorter, and I love Audrey Tatou's pixie.

I'm actually working on growing my hair longer, but years ago I had really short hair, very similar to the haircut Janine Turner had on the old show, Northern Exposure (see photo). I really liked it, and it was a really easy style, BUT I now admit that part of the reason I got it was as a way NOT to deal with my curly hair.

It's all good though. I've evolved in my relationship with my hair, and I'm growing more and more appreciative of my curls, but if I ever went short again, it would probably be pixie!

Your cut is really cute. Hope you're enjoying it!

I remember Janine Turner's hair! I think pixies are so cute and feminine.

I am enjoying my hair--I do have to wet and style it every day, unlike when it was longer, so it's a little more work, but I like it a lot better.

When my hair was that short, I could do a quick shampoo in the shower everyday and blowdry in five minutes. I barely had to think about my hair. After I grew it out, that's when things got complicated with having to blowdry and then hot roller or flatiron it. Now of course I'm only diffusing (when not wait for it to airdry), and *I'm* the 'complication' because I'm still figuring out my curly hair.

In some respects, short hair was the period when my hair was easiest. But I'm not complaining! I really do feel it's time for me to finally embrace my curly hair, so I'm happy about my hair in a whole new way!

Btw, good idea to have a thread on pixie cuts. I was noticing the same thing that different people had been asking about them on the forums.

I'd like to see others' pixies.

I love that haircut. Not for me, but I love it.
I posted my pixie on the 2s board a while ago. I loved it. I got tons of compliments from women. It was absolute freedom (other than I had to trim it every month or so, which cost me nothing). I didn't even own conditioner. I only needed a comb. I could wear a bike helmet or a stocking cap with virtually no damage to my "do." I met my husband in that phase of my life too. It was probably nearly the perfect haircut for me.
The only reasons I don't go back to it: I like my waves and curls and the pixie makes me look a lot younger and thus it wouldn't be fair to husband who is quite a bit older than me. If not for the second reason, I would run to the mirror right now and cut my hair! Being closer to 40 and looking closer to "almost 30" would be quite nice!

You look great with a pixie, IAgirl, and you also look great with your curls. You really have gorgeous hair and I don't blame you for sticking with your beautiful waves and curls!

Bring out your pixies, ladies!

IAGirl, your pixie is awesomely adorable!!! Love it!! I had a pixie in my late teens and 20's. This was before I knew I had wavy hair!! It was a lot of fun but I get bored super easily and grew it out..........then cut it again and grew it out again lol.

I hear ya - it's almost like self exploration played out on the canvas of our hair. After the pixie, I grew mine out to my waist. Then I wanted waves and so the haircuts began. It's good to try very different things on to see if they fit.

Over the years, I've had hair everywhere from pixie length to elbow length. Always so funny how what you want can be so drastically different from one time to another.

What gets me most is that only now am I bothering to really get to know my hair for what it is naturally -- Makes me wonder what choices I'd have made about length and style all that time if I'd let my hair be its naturally curly self back then.

I love pixies on other people. I especially like IAgirl's pixie that made her look like a cool, modern wood nymph. I had a light blonde pixie in collage that did not go well. I have the wrong shape face. Also my small (tiny) town stylist that mostly did old lady roller sets was not really up to the task. Much to my surprise, I felt efeminated (my made up word to mean emasculated, but for women). I have zero attachment to the length of my hair, but I sure did not like it when it was gone. I looked like a concentration camp victim. It probably wasn't that bad, but it seemed that bad. Anyway, that is my cautionary tale.
Great idea for a thread, BTW.

The thing is, *everyone* else who saw it thought her hair looked fantastic!

When I got my first pixie cut, I was going from shoulder length hair to pixie length. I guess what helped me was how freakin' tired I was of either blowdrying and hot rollering (didn't have a flatiron back then) or of so much not wanting to bother at all with my hair that I'd just keep it tied up in the back.

Change was what I was looking for, and the pixie cut delivered it! In my case, at that time, I was just soooooo glad to have so much less hair.

Really interesting discussion about change/life phases and hair. Thanks!

I was thinking back on my hair... I've almost always had short hair. I had short hair as a kid (and a Dorothy Hamill cut in 1985!). I remember the first time I grew it out and it was just long enough to get in a pony tail when I was 15... Had it all cut it off at a hair styling school when I was 21 and it was terrible! I remember when the student was cutting it, at one point it looked great but she kept cutting and cutting and 3 hours later it was all gone and I looked like a boy. I grew it out again and I cut it all off again super short at 26-ish and people were horrified. I didn't get any positive comments. Grew it out again over 10 years... Cut it into a bob 2.5 years ago, and now thinking about a pixie cut again... I wonder if there's ever a "good" time to cut it all off. I'm not quite brave enough to do it yet but I'm thinking about it!

And, post up your pixie pics, everyone!

Btw, shhhh.... I have a dirty little secret. Since I'm still so new to going natural, every now and then on a bad hair day, I still get seductive thoughts about how easy my hair was when it was short. Things like "My hair could be dry in 10 minutes instead of 2 hours.... My hair wouldn't know what a tangle was... etc." BUT then on days when I somehow put together the right combo of products and routine for my curly hair, and it loves me back by looking curly-gorgeous, I'm so glad I've got it to show off and go back to not being able to wait until more of it grows out. <-- Being curly can sometimes feel a little schizophrenic.
It's an inspiration to me when someone posts that they've hit on a failsafe routine for their curly hair. It keeps me thinking that that'll happen for me someday, too, if I just stick with it.

Nevertheless, not even talking about the whole curly haircare thing, I gotta say the pixie cut look rocks!

I had a long-ish pixie cut back in July & have since gone a bit shorter still, I'm really enjoying it this length & not missing my long hair at all, also I can go several days without washing I just spray & re-style a bit in the mornings, it's great!

I have noticed that pixie's are getting really popular again recently (that's fashion I suppose, it always comes back around again if you wait long enough!)

I think Pixies could do with their own topic!

Ok, so here's me pretending like I have a pixie. Before/after. Yes, I know the mirror is filthy. No, I don't know why the pictures are sideways!

Just got mine cut. Little bit long for a pixie but lots shorter than it was!! Oh and she styled it straight-it will be shorter when I do it cuz I will let it be wavy. It's wavy when short.
