2016 is just underway, but the pixie and bob cut are proving to be a strong fashion statement that will last throughout the year. Many top celebrities have featured and elevated the cut’s popularity, including Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, Robin Wright, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway, Emma Watson, Natalie Portman, Kiera Knightley, and Victoria Beckham. Miley Cyrus is especially iconic for this fashion statement!
Needless to say, the popularity is spreading. Most of us will never walk a red carpet, but are still intrigued by a shorter ‘do. So what are some important things to keep in mind when considering the cut? For starters, your face shape is a key part of the equation. Depending on factors like a longer face, a heart shaped face, and the size of your forehead, you’ll want a pixie cut tailored specifically to your features.
Because this isn’t a “one size fits all” kind of situation, do your research to find the best hair stylist to help you out. Yelp is a great tool as always, particularly if you search for “pixie cut” in your area. There’s nothing wrong with seeking out specialization! When you do go for the cut, feel free to bring a picture or two so your stylist can get an idea of what you’re going for. Between your vision and their expertise, you’ll be able to come up with a final cut that is stylish, and accentuates your best features. You also may need some new hair care products to manage the new cut, with which your stylist can assist you.
