The New Pixie Haircut in Hollywood

Pixie Haircut in Hollywood

The pixie haircut is back, just in time for summer!

The pixie haircut made its mark back in the 50’s in Hollywood on Mia Farrow (Rosemary’s Baby) and Audrey Hepburn (Wait until Dark.) They made such a hit of the pixie haircut that virtually all Mother’s of that era ran their little girls to the beauty salon (sometimes to the barber shop) to get their little darlin’s the easiest maintenance cut of the summer!

“Pixie Haircut is Back”I’ve spoken with literally hundreds of women who, back in the 50’s, were forced into wearing the pixie haircut, my two sisters and I included. Most of us went kicking and screaming into the hair salons, knowing it was going to be yet another summer we were going to look like boys!

On top of that, most families had an at home ‘barber kit’ which was used to ‘keep up’ the pixie haircut for months to come. Yikes! Need I say more?  At least there were lots of funny looking kids running the neighborhoods with short, crooked bangs (not the asymmetrical type we may covet today) so you never felt alone in your misery!

Fast forward to today’s pixie haircut… cute as a bug now and still the simplest haircut to deal with in the hot summer months!  Pixie haircuts look best on women with oval and heart face shapes and nice bone structure. This short pixie haircut also looks best on small or petite women and will be especially flattering and accentuate pretty eyes!

By the way, a good thing to note; a ‘pixie haircut’ and a ‘crop haircut’ are terms being used pretty much synonymously today, but I suggest you bring in a picture to be sure you and your hair stylist are on the same page before snipping away. Some hair stylists call Rihanna’s do a pixie haircut, some call it a ‘crop haircut,’ but it’s not the same as the pixie haircut of say Pink’s cut below!  Get the idea?

Looks like Jessica slightly darkened her hair, making it one shade deeper brunette. Love the pixie haircut with long and short textured layers. It not only updates her look, but is much more flattering and brings out her great bone structure.

Michelle William’s long layered pixie haircut is a more sophisticated and modern look for her. The shorter haircut also makes her hair appear fuller with more body.
