Susan’s Pixie and Highlight

20th April 2015

“At my age, keeping my long hair started to be way too tiring and annoying. Not to mention it made me look so much older! This pixie haircut with highlights is exactly what I wanted!”

Susan W.

The pixie haircut is far from boring and we see more and more women plunging into the opportunity to cut their hair short. This hairstyle is generally short on the back and sides of the head, and slightly longer on the top, but styles vary. Pixie cuts were popularized first in the late 1950s when Audrey Hepburn wore the style in her debut film Roman Holiday, and later in the 1960s by actress Mia Farrow.

Some of the biggest, boldest and bravest stars throughout history have rocked a pixie cut, from the divinely feminine, to the extremely edgy or messy pixie. Because not all pixies are created equal, before you decide you want to go for it, you will need to take your time and do your research, and talk to your stylist to get a customized pixie that is perfect for you. Hair color also helps take your hairstyle to a whole new level, so do consider it. If you are not convinced that this is the right do for you, here are 3 main reasons to reconsider it:

  • it looks charming, you can still look very feminine even if you wear your hair short
  • it is perfect for both formal and casual days (choose accessories for the perfect appearance)
  • it is way too easy to maintain

There is a misconception that pixies are plain and boring, because there is not too much that you can do with short hair. There are so many ways to style your hair to have a fresh, new look every day! From the modern and hip style, to a more youthful look, all it takes is trying out one that matches your personality and mood for the day. Be inspired!
