Pixie Cuts are back and they are back with a vengeance! What is a pixie cut?
Pixie cuts were popularized first in the 1950s when Audrey Hepburn wore the style in her debut film Roman Holiday, and later in the 1960s by actress Mia Farrow and British supermodel Twiggy, then even later by Laugh-In star Goldie Hawn. Jean Seberg also sported a pixie cut for Otto Preminger’s melodrama film Bonjour Tristesse.
The crop became fashionable again in the late 1970s and 1980s, with one of its most notable wearers being the actress Jacqueline Pearce in the British TV series Blake’s 7. The crop also was big in the mid 1990s, and Halle Berry appeared in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day wearing a crop. In 2010, Cate Blanchett and Hayden Panettiere also sported cropped hair.
Depending on the style, pixies range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches long in others. Pixies are very easy to maintain and can be worn casually, or dressed up for special occasions. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixie_cut)
Not everyone can wear the pixie cut, but those who can rock it like it’s no one’s business! Fantasia is one of the queens of the pixie cut. Jamie Lee Curtis looks amazing wearing the pixie and her salt and pepper hair color gives it an extra flare. A lot of women want to wear a pixie cut but are afraid of not being able to maintain the style, when actually short hair is easier to maintain. When the hair is short you can always get away with a quick shampoo and gel or foam wrap without even touching it with a curling iron or flat iron, and it can still look stylish.
If you’re unsure about how you will look with short hair, you can always get a short weave to see how you will look with a short cut. Be bold and do what you feel!
