Beginning of the year, there was a major buzz in the hair scene when several celebs lopped off their locks in exchange for a pixie crop. Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart, Zoë Kravitz to name a few, and then Cara Delevingne went for a shave to remember for life. The pixie haircut in platinum blonde is stunning but it’s certainly not for the faint-hearted. Once it’s off, there’s nothing left to hide. This ultra-chic hairstyle is however, much more versatile than you think. If you’re inspired enough to consider chopping it all off, the good news is that it will last for a few months with just a trim in between and it will grow out into a real funky style.
But if that’s too huge a commitment to make, consider the lob aka long bob that many A-listers are currently sporting. This mid-length is perfect for those who want a haircut without going for a complete chop. It lets you grow out easily too. However, you may need to blow-dry your hair to keep it looking sleek as it can kink once it touches the shoulders.
If you are still unsure whether to cut or not, try faux pixie cuts like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid who recently rocked ‘short hair’ on the Tom Ford S/S 18 runway. Their hair was folded and styled to look like a messy choppy pixie (your hair needs to be layered for this). The ends of the hair were also brought over to give the illusion of bangs.
