Extreme Short Summer Hair :: The Pixie Cut

Posted Jul 25 2012 9:06am
To pixie cut ones hair, from super long to super short takes some GUTS. Or a really big movie paycheck to make the scissors a bit easier to swallow if you're a Hollywood celeb.  I often get bored with my hair and dream about what it would look like to do something drastic like chopping it ALL off.  But then I keep seeing pictures of beautiful Anne Hathaway and how her look changed so dramatically after she cut it for her Les Miserable role and think twice about this idea...

This last picture of her hair makes me want to weep for her, because the long hair is just so gorgeous and shiny, and girly!!!  I understand cutting it off for a big movie, it's her job, it's her craft, it's just hair, it's not a big deal.  But man is it sad to see all that beautiful hair gone bye bye.
With it being so hot this summer, I would think having boy-type hair like this would be extremely beneficial in that it would be: 
  • super low maintenance to get ready in the a.m.
  •  you wouldn't have to worry with sweaty bangs or long hair sticking to your neck in the humidity
  • you would use or need to buy very little hair products
Here are some famous faces I think actually pull off this extreme short look with beautiful ease...

Two things all 4 of these pixie cut ladies have in common - long skinny necks and absolutely gorgeous feminine facial features!!  Musts in order to pull this look off without someone calling Natalie "Nathan" or Victoria "Victor." Oh, and really good makeup - like smokey eyes, lots of lashes, and glossy lips so there's no denying your girly side.
Good news is, hair does grow back if you decide you don't like a pixie cut once it's been chopped.  But then there is always that awkward moment of "in-between" that seems to take months and months and months to grow back...

Would you or have you ever cut your hair drastically into a short pixie cut?  Did you love it or regret it?
