Pixie Cut... Yes or no?
 
Hey, curlyheads! I just joined this website because I have a question for you all. I think I want to change up my look in a major way before I go to college, and I'm wondering if the best way to do that is to go super-short. I'd love it to look like Audrey Tautou's http://media1.onsugar.com/files/upl2...Short-Hair.jpg or Ginnifer Goodwin's http://shorthairstylescuts.com/wp-co...-pixie-cut.jpg though I don't know if with my hair, which is like a 2c or a 3a, it would. I'm also not sure if I have the face for short hair.

This is what I look like with my hair away from my face (I'm the one on the right.)

Sorry if this is the wrong place to be posting this, by the way... I am new, after all. :hello2:

I simply adore pixie cuts but they do require some upkeep and it's important to be well-informed before cutting it all off since it can take quite some time to grow it back out. I'd have a good solid consultation with your stylist along with pictures before you decide to do anything just to be on the safe side. Maybe even try on some wigs to get an idea? I think you'd look adorable with a pixie and it'd be a lot of fun to do but it's always good to be well-informed before making a big decision! Good luck and post pics if you do go for it!!! :hello2:

Thank you! I really want to try it out but I'm scared :confused3: I'd feel bad about wasting my hairdresser's time if we decide not to do it, that's my only concern- because if I don't go pixie, I probably won't cut it.

if she's a good hairdresser, really concerned about your hair, you won't be wasting her time. when you book the appt tell them you might not get it cut, you want a consult and maybe a cut. some places may charge you something for the consult, then she will have earned some money anyway. if not, you can tip her.

also, i agree that you most likely can wear a pixie cut with your face shape, it would look cute.
however, it is a long process growing it in if you get tired of it.
but it is hair and it will grow, so if you really want to try it, then go for it. or maybe wait til your first college semester is done so you won't be dealing with two totally new things together. ??????????

Thanks for the advice!

I agree strongly with RBB in that when you call your salon, tell them you're really just looking for a consultation right now. After, you can decide if a pixie is right for you. Maybe if you're not ready for a full on pixie, you can still cut your hair a bit shorter and see how you do with that. You can always go shorter!!:rambo:

I had a pixie cut for 9 years and really loved how carefree it was (other than needing a trim every 3-4 weeks). But it was truly wash-and-wear for me.

As other commenters have noted - it's a great cut, but requires maintenance of the cut (and the $ that goes along with it, but you may be able to work out a "volume discount" with your stylist - doesn't hurt to ask), and growing out a pixie once you're done with it is a b**ch! I tried 4 separate times to grow mine out, and finally have passed the point of no return (I'm now about a year into the grow out and still have tons of layers).

I think you'd look cute with one, though, and it is a fun, easy cut to have.

Good luck!
