Chyler Leigh: Anatomy of Pixie Heaven

"Mary? Could you skip your pizza date with Ruthie and come over so I can badly influence you?"

“Mary? Could you skip your pizza date with Ruthie and come over so I can badly influence you?”

Get it? ‘Cause Chyler was on 7th Heaven and Grey’s Anatomy! Whatever. Am I the only one who remembers her as Frankie, Mary’s bad-influence friend on 7th Heaven, who wore braids, a hanky ’round her head, and dangly earrings? She stole our hearts even as she got Mary into deep shit. Anyhoo, look at how beautiful she is with her Pixie Cut! I mean, seriously. She is perfection.

What’s the Right Pixie Cut for YOUR Face Shape?

Yeah, SHE doesn't look sexy or anything, right?

Yeah, SHE doesn’t look sexy or anything, right?

So a really beautiful young woman wrote me an email saying she wants to chop her hair off. Of course, I’m all “Yay!” She mentions that her ex-boyfriend said he didn’t think short hair on women is sexy…?! I’m soooo glad it’s her EX-boyfriend because that is reeeediculous. Short hair is SO SEXY. Let me put it this way — when you feel beautiful and sexy, you ARE beautiful and sexy. If short hair makes you feel beautiful and sexy, then it stands to reason:

Short hair = SEXY

Okay? Okay. Now, on to face shape, which is what this lovely young woman was really asking me about….

I culled some great links from the web on the topic and here they are.

  • SheKnows has this super-duper graphic (see above) and a handy guide for determining exactly what your face shape is!
  • This article from Fashionista has some great tips and resources, including those internet things where you can see how you’d look with short hair.
  • Oooh this one from FashionLady is good, too! Although some of the suggested cuts aren’t really Pixies, but still — good for determining your face shape!
  • And finally, here’s a link to TotalBeauty, which covers Pixie Cuts and bobs, too, although come on, nothing says transformative like a Pixie Cut!

Thanks and tons of sparkly Pixie Power to the lovely lady who wrote to me asking for advice!

[Insert Fifty Shades Reference Here!]

Jamie Dornan’s wife Amelia is totally rocking her short hair and Pixcessories (as seen here on Us). She is totally adorbs and she makes him cuter, too, because he looks happy!

Amelia, if the rumors are true and the whole Fifty Shades thing is stressing you out, don’t worry. There’s more chemistry in this pic of you and Mr. D. then there was with Dakota in that entire movie!

Ditch Mermaid Hair for Fairy Hair!*

*”Fairy Hair” coined by our beautiful, fairy-haired friend That Cheap Bitch.

I love mermaids, but I’m totally over Mermaid Hair. Luckily That Cheap Bitch not only is on my wavelength, but she did an inspiring post about pastel-colored Pixie Cuts!

As TCB puts it, “Tinkerbell is way sassier than Ariel anyway.” SO true. Can you imagine Tinkerbell having her wings cut off for Peter Pan, or giving up her fairy dust? No. ‘Cause that would be a deal breaker, ladies!

Without further ado, I give you Pastel Colored Pixie Cuts That Prove Fairy Hair is Better Than Mermaid Hair. Thanks so much for sharing, TCB!

Linda Fiorentino in “After Hours”

fhd-afh-linda-fiorentino-236575883Need I say more? Well… if the answer’s yes, then I’ll add that I think she’s doing like a sculpture or something and she gets a little plaster in her hair. But she may also have some highlights. And look at the longer part in the back. It’s these little details… the ones that don’t make sense… that make the look utter perfection.

She’s also a mom. And she’s my cousin. No, seriously. My first cousin.

I love her gorgeous Pixie Cut, which is completely its own crop, just like Cassidy is her own spirit, her own person.

Love you, Cassie!
