The Pros & Cons Of Pixie Cut
The Pros Of Pixie Cut
Windy day? No problem! No long tresses mean less hassle and fretting with your hair. And just no longer feeling the weight of all that hair is so freeing! The act of chopping off your hair is a brave thing to do (it REALLY is!), and the adrenaline rush is one of the best things about the pixie!
With a pixie, any outfit will automatically look more stylish and people will assume you're more quirky and fun! Besides, with a pixie, you don't have to use it much! Your styling products, Shampoo, and conditioner last way longer!
Less Hassle Day to Day
It may take you a week or two to find your way through, but once you do you will find that getting ready in the morning is so much easier! While blow-drying long hair can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, a pixie is dry in sometimes just three minutes! Toss in some gel and spritz a little spray and your good for the day! Just carry a comb and a travel-size hairspray to get you through a day out on the town and you are good to go! Imagine how much time you will have for activities!
To sort of balance out having to go to the salon so frequently your cuts and or color treatments will be cheaper! If I wanted to dye my whole head with my pixie-length hair it would be around 100$ (At least at my salon.) with my super long probably over 300$. Short hair? Experiment!
Again, the chop is a gutsy move to make, and the confidence that can come with it is worth it all on its own. Feeling lighter and more open to the world is the best feeling ever.
Hair fried from years of blowout, straighteners, and curlers? Or how about bleaching it and coloring it? A pixie cut curly hair is a fun way to start a new one. But now that your hair is short and healthy- take the opportunity to really take care of your hair! Use a heat protectant, wear hats to protect your hair from the sun, and towel dry with care. This is especially important if you know you will want to grow it back out.
More Freedom in Wardrobe and Makeup Choices
Something about the pixie opens up new options in makeup and clothing choices. What was once too girly or feminine now looks very appropriate with a chic pixie, so have fun playing dress-up in your prettiest, frilliest dresses.
Also, if you are towards the androgynous look, your pixie ties it all together to give off that perfect Audrey-gamine look. Also, makeup can be much more daring- fling that wing out just a touch more, make that lip just a bit redder. JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN!
The Cons Of Pixie Cut
More frequent Shampoos
Short tresses mean more frequent shampooing, and no more relying on dry shampoo to get you through day three of no washing. Because your hair is so much closer to your scalp which generates oil throughout the day, your hair will just appear greasier between washes… That’s just the nature of the pixie.
This is a minor con but still worth mentioning. With short hair, your neck and shoulders don't have that extra protection, this is a problem. Also in the winter your head, ears, neck, and shoulders can get cold.
New Learning Curve
While you may be used to throwing your hair up in a fast pony or top knot on bad hair days, you no longer have that luxury with a pixie cut. You will have to rediscover how to blow dry and style your new hair. Along the same vein, you may need to do a product overhaul as your old products may not be becoming on your new do. That’s kind of ok though, because who doesn’t love a good Ulta haul every once in a while?
Frequent Salon Trips
Depending on how fast your hair grows, you will find you may need to hit the salon for a trim every three to six weeks to keep the desired shape and texture of your pixie cut. But, if you love your stylist it’s really not so bad.
Less Diversity in Styling
If you have an extremely short pixie then traditional "styling" like with a curling or flat iron is virtually impossible. However, if you have a little bit of a longer pixie then you can change up the texture some but compared to long hair you're essentially stuck with the same style.
Beauty Standards Can Rear its Ugly Head
Some people may question your sexuality based on your new short hair, they just will. The number of people who find it appropriate to ask you if you are a lesbian may astound you. And not to mention some men aren’t attracted to this sometimes boyish hairstyle. So if you thrive off your feminine beauty, this may not be the right style for you.
