The adorable Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame recently debuted a cute and stylish Pixie haircut. This famous style dates back to Julie Andrews, Mia Farrow and Twiggy, to name just a few celebrities who have sported this short hairdo over the years. While you may be inspired to run off to the salon and ask your stylist to duplicate this fashionable cut on you, this is a very dramatic hairstyle that just isn’t right for everybody. Here are some questions to ask yourself before committing to the Pixie style.
Do You Have a Bold and Dynamic Personality?
Do you ooze self confidence and love being the center of attention? Do you often stand out in a crowd and love it? This hair style is not for the shy and self conscious. You will surely get lost of attention every where you go, simply because of the bold and striking nature of the cut. If too many eyes upon you make you nervous and anxious, the Pixie cut may not be right for you.
Do You Have Very Defined Cheekbones or Large Eyes?
The super short length of the Pixie style draws attention to both the eyes and cheekbones. If you have have striking eyes and well defined cheekbones, this hair style will look simply stunning on you. If your eyes are a bit on the small side or your cheek bones are not very defined, don’t despair. You will simply have to spend a bit of time using cosmetics to play up these facial features to pull the whole look together.
Do You Have Poor Quality Hair?
If your hair is just not as lush, thick and healthy as it once was, this hair style can give you a much more polished appearance. Long hair that is thin, or tends to frizz and has a mind of it’s own can be made to appear much more healthy and chic with the Pixie.
Are You a Low Maintenance Gal?
If spending hours in the bathroom every morning drying, straightening or curling your hair is just not for you, this cute and low maintenance hair style may be just what you are looking for. A quick blast of the blow dryer and then a dollop of styling gel or pomade is all it takes to give this cut some shine and definition. Depending on your hair’s texture and how much you want to style the front of this cut, you may be able to just wash and go. It doesn’t get any more low maintenance than that.
Do You Love to Play with Makeup and Accessories?
The lure of the Pixie cut is greatly enhanced by dramatic makeup and bold and chunky jewelery. A cat eye makeup, statement necklace and large hoop earrings can instantly take the whole look to another level. If you love to play around with cosmetics and simply don’t feel dressed until you add some personal flair with jewelery, this hair style will definitely work for you.
Do You Have Patience?
The very short length of this haircut makes growing it out a very long and painstaking process. If you decide you really don’t like your hair this way, or you get tired of it after a short while, it will be quite a long time before it really grows out. If you have the patience to deal with this and enjoy trying different looks, the Pixie cut is a good option for you.
