People.com reports with unnerving detail that Charlize Theron recently took her Pixie Cut out to eat with a friend at Tortilla Republic in West Hollywood. Apparently, she ordered up “huarache hongos flatbread, housemade guacamole and jalapeño Margaritas.” Tattletale waiter? Overzealous …
Don’t get all excited; Cameron Diaz has not gone Pixie. I’m just taking another look at her gorgeous short crop from the days of yore. Love the piecey layers and the way it frames her face.
I can almost 100% guarantee I will never see Sin City or the sequel. Nor will I give either of them much thought. But I like how Rosario Dawson’s hair looks in the images from Sin City 2. Can’t tell if it’s a wig, or it’s cut a little here and bunched up a little there… but there’s something Blade Runner-y about it and I like it. And I like Rosario’s hair at Cannes 2014, too… now all she has to do is buzz the rest the way and she’ll really be cooking with fire!
Short hair can work on anyone. It just about getting the right cut. Conversely, the wrong cut can not work on anyone, even if that anyone is a famous movie star, even if that anyone is… Scarlett Johansson. Courtesy of People, we have here Scarlett’s new look. If she wants my advice, which she does not, I would just go full-on Pixie Cut.
This looks dry. It looks wedge-y. It looks weird. Scarlett, just because you’re about to become a mommy doesn’t mean you have to get the dreaded “mom chop.” Please take my advice (which trust me, I know she won’t) and get a straight-up gorgeous Pixie Cut. And while you’re at it, try a darker color. Less upkeep. Less chemicals. Not so dry-looking.
There. I’ve said my piece.
Robin Wright, who’s been killing it in general with her foxy short crop, her turn as Claire Underwood on House of Cards, and her love life, served Jimmy Fallon like a boss on The Tonight Show. She’s so lovely!
24: Live Another Day aired its finale last week, but I’m still obsessing over it. (Don’t believe me? Check out my 24 Keep Calm Challenge on Twitter.)
I wanted to tie into my obsession by featuring two of 24‘s notable Pixies: Terri Bauer (played by Leslie Hope) and Nina Myers (Sarah Clarke).
If you haven’t seen the show, I don’t want to spoil it for you, so I’ll say no more. But check out their respective crops — really cute, right?
Oh, hey! Will you like Pixie Forever on Facebook?
Kristen Stewart has quite a look going here at the Chanel Haute Couture show (whatever the heck that is). Us Weekly has the scoop on Kristen’s weird white harem-pants outfit… and her short red hair, which I am really liking!
…. it’s not going to happen. In fact, rumors of the Lob have been greatly exaggerated.
“Goodbye Pixie Cut, Hello Lob” reads the headline on the Daily Beast. ”Like seasons, hair cuts quickly come and go,” muses writer Erin Cunningham, and she’s right about that. “The pixie cut has officially abdicated its throne, and the ‘lob’ (abbreviation for the ‘long bob’) has taken the reins as the hottest cut in town.”
No, sorry. I beg to differ. A Pixie Cut is timeless, which is why it has endured over the decades. The Pixie Cut is iconic. It embodies moxie. Pixies stand proud. Who wants to be a Lob? Lob Forever? Hmm, doesn’t have quite the same ring.
“Sure, the bob may be one of the most common haircuts for women (it’s been in existence since the early 1900s, after all),” writes Cunningham.
“But now, a new crop of fashion and beauty icons have taken a seemingly historical style and its equally old counterpart (the long bob was originally popularized in the 1930s) and made them seem brand spanking new.”
I dunno if it seems brand-spanking new. It just seems like a bob. There are short bobs (which are sisters to the Pixie Cut) and long bobs. Now the latter is being called a Lob. Kind of reminds me of how NYC neighborhoods get stupid names to either make them seem trendy or to extend a trend that’s already peaked. Billyburg, anyone?
I was so excited to read about Gisele Bundchen’s supposed buzz cut on Us Weekly. But it’s totally fake, as an astute PF reader pointed out.
Us Weekly reported that Balenciaga’s artistic director, Alexander Wang, wanted Gisele’s look to be “strong, powerful, mysterious and uncompromising.” Total Pixie qualities. Only thing is, Gisele is not a Pixie.
Wang explained a totally ludicrous process to Style.com wherein there was a body double, prosthetic bald caps, and lots of Photoshop. And Wang actually has the nerve to say that the brand “empower[s] women to cut their hair and feel confident and feel beautiful and feel desired.” Um, hello? Why should women be inspired to cut their hair by a model with long hair? What’s Gisele so afraid of? Thinks she can’t hack it with short hair?
PS Do you think Gisele heard about Amber Valletta’s “gutsy new haircut” and raised the stakes? Well, Gisele, you’d have to actually cut your hair to match up.

Amber Valletta is on the cover of this month’s Allure mag with the caption “Her gutsy haircut and supermodel stories.” She looks beautiful — duh, she’s a supermodel! — but I like vintage Valletta, myself (circa 1990′s). Her hair was much shorter and her eyebrows were plucked super-thin, which was altogether much more daring. Here are the two covers. Which one do you like best?
Remember Anne Hathaway’s Perfect Strangers moment?
How about the boring-a-fying of Rooney Mara?
But we are not hating this cover!
Lupita Nyong’o is rocking it as always. She looks beautiful!
I don’t know which to admire more fervently… her short hair or her arms!
Actually, you know what my favorite thing about Lupita is? Her Pixie Moxie!
