Pixie cuts are having a major moment right now
We are about two months away from spring but celebrities aren’t waiting for warmer weather to cut their hair super short.
Pixie cut searches have been trending online for the past few weeks and you can expect to see them more and more.
What makes this cut so desirable is not only its versatility to work with just about any hair type and face shape, but also its cute androgyny.
You’ve seen this style on people like Zoe Kravitz, Zendaya and Ruby Rose. And more and more everyday people want to ditch the long locks for a shorter style. Even if you don’t want to cut your hair, you can get a wig with this cut to test it out and see if it’s your style.
You really can’t go wrong with this cut because it gives you volume and is perfect for people with naturally thick hair. Even of you don’t have thick hair you can still get this style and tweak it to your presence. For instance you can slick it back, pump it up, curl it, make finger waves, the list goes on.
LA/NYC based stylist and salon co-owner Sal Sacedo has noticed a hike in request for shorter styles lately and his Insta is filled with life changing before and after pictures of his clients hair being brought back to life or spiced up. One client in particular stood out to us, and what she has to say about it is even doper.
“I’ve been toying with the idea of going super short for a while now and realized how much of a hot mess I was in 2017, so what better time than on New Year’s Day to start fresh?” she said. “I’ve always admired cool girls who weren’t your run-of-the-mill pretty. Bending stereotypical gender norms and expectations and playing with androgyny is empowering and fun. I’ve never felt more comfortable in my own skin, and I feel incredibly magical and badass on top of that.”
Don’t be surprised when you notice more people chopping off their long locks and adding pixie cuts to their things to try list because it’s really hot right now, and even if you cut it and immediately regret it, it’s only hair and it always grows back.
