It seems that pixie cuts have been named the new "it" haircut. Well, at least according to several magazines, including Teen Vogue. This year, we've seen an increase in the celebrities with chopped-off hair (see Natalie Portman above center), and models like Agnes Deyn (above right) have also increased in popularity. For as long as I can remember, I've admired pixie cuts. There's something so chic about them. There's always the worry that a "boy haircut" will make you look like...well...a boy, but I think in most cases a pixie cut makes its wearer look ultra-feminine by highlighting the girlish curves and features of their face. I was actually a little ahead of the loop on this trend (which makes me feel infinitely cool), because I chopped off my hair last year. I recently gave into my short hair attention span and started to grow it out, but this is what it looked like a year ago (excuse the odd, gloomy expression):
I really loved the cut. In fact, it was probably my favorite haircut I've ever had. And because of my short hair attention span, I've been changing my hairstlye about twice a year since I was 10, so I have a lot of haircuts to pick from. First of all, it was so easy. I went from being a girl who was attatched at the hip to a blowdryer to a girl who didn't touch one. In fact, I didn't even need a hairbrush. All I had to do was wet my hair (or wash it), decide whether or not I wanted to mess up my hair with gel, and go. Also, it added interest to my appearance. I didn't have to worry so much about whether my clothing looked to much like everyone else's on a lazy day, because my hair didn't look like anyone else's. And I think it looked good on me, which is always a plus.
