Pixie What?


One of the hottest trends in hair, has broken loose and made long hair the new short hair. I’m not just talking about the casual bob or the shoulder length cut, but essentially a badass boy cut. For once in my life, I’m sick of my long hair. It takes too much effort to deal with a bird’s nest, and the ends of my hair are like branches ready to snap off. Therefore, I’m ready to embrace the new me. Over the past year, I have changed through my personality and definitely my sense of style. Although I’m still all for looking like Cinderella once in a while, I feel a little more mature and care less for how people perceive me. Instead of pleasing others, I’m fine with just looking good for myself. Plus, I’m sorta looking for a new physical identity, and get my life straight in order to finally look and feel how I want to. I just need to find the confidence first.

Shown on celebrities such as Miley Cyrus and Emma Watson. They rock their short doe easily, and it reflects on how they have changed subsequently throughout the years from being Hannah Montana and Hermione Granger, to full-grown women. In many interviews they have never felt more like themselves, and confident. Their hair cuts not only reflect their beauty on the outside, but frame their personalities as confident enough to show the world.

 To many people, the pixie cut isn’t the number one choice hair cut although it is getting quite popular. I feel like the pixie cut is masculine yet feminine. I love the look and texture of the hair, especially when it’s really short and layered. I know it sounds crazy to my friends that I want to cut off my belly button length locks, but I guess it’s just private logic. Yet, all at same time I feel as if I’m still on the fence. I think that my heart is telling to just do it, it’s not a big deal, it’s just hair. But, my brain is about to overload. I’m thinking too much, on relationships, prom, ect. I know that I’m not into having a relationship anytime soon, but right now, I think that how I feel pretty is by styling my long hair. And especially prom, that has a huge weighing factor on my decision. Prom is in a year and a couple of months away, and surely anyone will tell me that it’s more than enough time to grow out my hair. In my logic, I feel like it won’t. I know my hair, and it’s just going to get complicated and stressful with the time ticking down. It’s my senior next year, and an impossible stress free year, sounds like a blessed year to me. With all these factors accounted for, what’s next? A casual trim of my split ends? or something that I’ve wanted for a long time but have no guts to chop off?

Let me know what you think about the pixie cut!

  1. Hi Carmen, I go to school with you and I think you are an amazing person! This blog is such great place to find inspiration and your posts are pure entertainment. I def think you should go for the cut if it means being who you truly are and erasing the thoughts of others. Hair will eventually grow back and it gives you a chance to experiment. As you make your decision, keep in mind that there are much more valuable things in life besides looking pretty. Listening to what your heart tells you is the number one priority! Keep on blogging 🙂

    • Really!? Do you mind me asking who you are? And thanks for such a wonderful comment, and yeah definitely agree with you there are more things to prioritize other than wanting to look pretty, plus even if I don’t get the cut this year, i’ll get it some day!

  2. I used to not be a fan, but just recently really grown to appreciate the pixie cut. I think Anne Hathaway looks great with it- makes her a lot less generic looking than before.

  3. I always thought shortcuts weren’t meant for me and I really loved my long hair (though they weren’t as long as yours), they always made me feel safe and pretty when I liked nothing else about my appearence. Then they became weak and fragile, you know. The time to “let them go” was arrived and it was the only way to save them. The first cut was half the lenght, not so dramatic actually, but I felt my head so light! And I missed my ponytail and all the other strange things I did to tie them 🙂 But the thing is, once they’re gone, you’ll find out you can play with your image in different ways and put an accent on your new you. It’s important to feel good with yourself, expecially if the changes in you are ready to come out. Don’t fear the world, everything goes on because of changes 🙂

    Besides, I personally think you would look so so so cute 😉
    Love your blog!


    • Same here, I truthfully love my hair, it’s like my prize possession. Unfortunately, it’s been starting to die out, and it’s disgustingly dry. I’m glad someone knows how I feel about hair! I’m excited to play with my image, and maybe I look better in the pixie? Fingers crossed. Thanks for the advice, I’ll keep that in mind when it’s chopped off! Also, thanks you’re so sweet! I’ll definitely post the cut when I get it done this weekend! ❤

  4. I LOVE THE PIXIE CUT!!! personally I think it shows off all the beautiful features of your face that you wouldn’t normally see with hair in your face. Such a fan that I two rocked the pixie cut when I was 19. GREAT POST!

    • I’m in love with the cut too, I hope it shows the best side of me, and of course not my worst. I’m glad it worked out so well for you! Thank you for the comment, I really appreciate it xoxo
