Pixie considerations
5 Things to Consider Before Getting a Pixie
zendaya
 
       
 
The pixie is a trending cut that’s been gracing the heads of many lovely celebrities. I myself have been debating chopping off my chest-length hair for months now, yet can’t seem to make the cut. Just when I think I’ve garnered the courage to chop (well over) a foot of my hair off, I change my mind again. Let’s face it: Going for the pixie cut is not for the faint of heart.
 
If you are considering trying out the pixie cut, here are five factors to consider before making the big chop.
 
1. Facial Features
Although there's a short hairstyle to fit every woman, a true pixie is one of the shortest. Think about your facial features, your ears, your neck — are those features you feel comfortable showing the world 24 hours a day, seven days a week?
 
If you prefer to have the option of longer hair around your face, a pixie may not be for you. This is actually the biggest challenge for me, as I use my long hair as a “curtain” at certain times — for example, dropping my kids off at school when I don’t have a lick of makeup on!
 
2. Styling Time
The good news? With super short hair, styling time decreases dramatically. Bad news? Unlike longer hair, which you can throw into a quick ponytail on those rushed mornings, you will need to spend a few minutes styling your hair every day. Short hair can also equal insane bed head.
 
3. Products
Styling products are must-haves for shorter haircuts. Waxes and pomades add texture, movement and shine, and also keep frizz and puffy hair at bay. I’m sure I’ll be trying tons of new products when (and if) the time comes.
 
4. Accessories
Many women mention feeling different about their clothing necklines and jewelry once they make the chop. You might also feel the need to amp up your makeup a little bit. A bold, punchy lip color looks gorgeous with a pixie cut.
 
5. Confidence
When all is said and done, the one piece of advice I’ve heard the most is that your confidence matters most. If you rock a pixie with an assured smile, the compliments from friends, family and strangers will roll in.

Cara Delevingne
Cara Delevingne's Hairstylist Shows Off Three Daring Ways To Style a Pixie Cut
Watch Mara Roszak transform a blonde pixie into a work of art.
 
A few days after Cara Delevingne debuted her shaved head to the world, I had a one-on-one appointment with her hairstylist Mara Roszak. When she mentioned how she'd be working with the model on her upcoming press tour for Valerian, I blurted out—"working how?" How does a hairstylist create a hairstyle on a nearly-shaved head?
 
Roszak didn't have an answer at the time, but weeks later, we saw the full extent of her untamed creativity. Delevingne hit the red carpets wearing a head-full of glitter, gold foil, sparkly hair accessories, and a fully-painted and rhinestoned silver scalp. The notion that you actually need hair to wear a cool hairstyle was now dead—all thanks to Roszak.
 
We asked the hairstylist and ambassador for L'Oréal Paris to recreate some of Delevingne's imaginative hairstyles in-studio—so we can see just how to get a truly powerful pixie.

You might also be wondering if there are specific times when you really should get a haircut. Two easily come to mind for Vaccaro:
 
1 - If your hair is visibly damaged
 
2 - If you're prepping for a big event
 
"I style a lot of brides and I always recommend having a fresh cut three weeks before her big day. That allows the stylist to customize her cut based on the hairstyle chosen for her wedding,” Vaccaro said.

25 Halle Berry Approved Ways To Style Your Pixie Cut
 
Halle Berry's icon status was solidified years ago and it includes her pixie cut. The Academy Award-winning actress has been rocking her signature look since the early '90s and with a track record that long, it's no wonder why the mother of two is the unofficial face of short haircuts. For many, the holiday season signifies a need for change, which may or may not include a big chop. Whether you're thinking about grabbing the scissors or already took the plunge, Berry's hair evolution is all the inspiration you need because contrary to popular belief, having short hair shouldn't limit your styling options. Here are 25 ways to wear a pixie cut, according to Berry herself.

Is it time for a haircut
Is it time for a haircut
3 questions you should ask yourself before the salon
 
To cut your hair or not to cut your hair? It’s the recurring question we've all pondered, and it’s often met with a touch of excitement and a dash of anxiety.
 
Making a change to your hair — whether big or small — is an emotional decision, but it’s definitely not one you have to make alone.
 
To help combat haircut confusion, TODAY Style consulted the experts to figure out if you’re really ready for a cut and color. We’re also serving up some sassy hair trends to give you a bit of inspiration!
 
Signs it’s time for a change
When you sit down for your routine haircut, does your stylist automatically ask you: “Want the usual?”
 
It’s so easy to fall into a hair pattern and ignore new styles entirely. After all, a new hairstyle requires a bit of research at the least or a whole lifestyle change at the most.
 
If you’re struggling to decide if it’s time for a hair change, start by asking yourself the following three questions:
 
1 - Do you wear your hair up all the time?
 
2 - Does your hair take forever to dry?
 
3 - Have you worn the same style since high school?
 
If you answered "yes" to one or more of the above, it’s time to switch things up!
 
“You know it’s time for a change when you can only recognize yourself with one particular haircut and/or style,” said celebrity hairstylist Michael Duenas. “Mix it up! It will change your entire attitude.”
 
According to Katie Manselle, Oribe educator and owner of Culture Hair Studio in Durham, North Carolina, every woman has a hair “sweet spot” and once you hit it, you’re typically showered with compliments on your ‘do from both friends and perfect strangers alike. Once the compliments stop flowing in, it may be time to revisit your current style.
 
“Hair is fun! It is the ultimate accessory. You don’t have to make a major change, but if you are feeling even just a little curious about what it might be like to do something a little different, my belief is — it’s time!” Manselle said.
 
Questions to ask yourself
Sure, you might be contemplating a hair change, but the real question is: Are you truly ready for one? If you’re hesitating even a little bit, it’s time to have an honest conversation with yourself and ask a few hard-hitting hair questions.
 
For starters, if your new style requires more frequent upkeep (think bobs or pixies), are you OK with visiting the salon more often? How often are you willing to style your new look?
 
If you’re aiming to make a drastic change, will your new style complement your lifestyle? And is the style you’re considering compatible with your hair texture and face shape?
 
Taking the time to ask yourself some difficult questions can help ensure you get a haircut you’ll love. It also helps to consider what is or isn’t working with your current cut and the last time you had a similar look (if ever). Another question to ask: Are you acting on impulse after an emotional event (like a breakup)?
 
"Ask yourself: 'Why am I cutting my hair?' Without a strong answer to this, you may realize you shouldn’t proceed with the haircut," said celebrity hairstylist Alexander Armand.
 
The bottom line? New hairstyles can breathe new life into your world, but just make sure you're ready before making a huge change!

Hair-cutting tips
Even after you’ve made the decision to make a hair change, there are still a number of confusing questions that can arise en route to the salon and even afterwards. How often should you get it cut? Do you need to wash your hair before heading to the salon? How much should you tip?
 
It can all be downright confusing, but it doesn’t have to be!
 
Your ideal time between haircuts really depends on your hair’s texture, style and length, but most women can easily go six weeks before heading back to the salon. Some hair types require a bit more or less maintenance while short cuts, like pixies, can require a trip to the salon every four weeks.
 
Longer styles work best when trimmed every two months (depending on your hair's density) and shorter styles are best maintained when trimmed every six weeks. But curly hair is in a league of its own.
 
“Curly hair can go a bit longer, sometimes even three to four months before needing a cut. Since your hair is curly, it grows ‘around’ and not down, so your hair getting longer isn’t too noticeable,” Duenas said. “As long as you keep it healthy, you can keep pushing that haircut aside.”
 
Just keep in mind that the average person’s hair grows about one to two inches a month, so frequent trims can help keep your style looking fresh. “If you are growing out your hair, a haircut every two to three months is OK if you aren’t putting a lot of heat on your hair," celebrity hairstylist Sunnie Brook added.
 
What about washing your hair before a haircut? Is it socially acceptable to show up to the salon with second-day hair? Turns out, it’s totally OK! In fact, it can help your stylist get a better idea of how you typically wear your hair.
 
“I highly recommend your stylist sees your hair in the style you typically wear it so they can assess what your hair needs. If you always blow your hair out, but wear it natural to your appointment, that doesn’t give your stylist the full picture,” Giovanni Vaccaro, Glamsquad creative director, said.
 
Showing up with dry hair can also help your stylist see growth patterns more easily. If you feel strongly about showing up with clean hair, though, don’t feel like you can't wash before a haircut. “If there’s a real need to see its behavior just cleaned, I encourage clients to come that way. There is always a story from the guest’s standpoint as well as the hair’s," Manselle said.
 
You might also be wondering if there are specific times when you really should get a haircut. Two easily come to mind for Vaccaro:
 
1 - If your hair is visibly damaged
 
2 - If you're prepping for a big event
 
"I style a lot of brides and I always recommend having a fresh cut three weeks before her big day. That allows the stylist to customize her cut based on the hairstyle chosen for her wedding,” Vaccaro said.
