How fortunate are we to have beautiful, inspiring women like Layla send us pics of their fabulous Pixie Cuts? Very fortunate! Layla had never had a Pixie Cut before. “To raise money and awareness for GIST [Gastrointestinal stromal tumor] cancer (my mam …
Do I even need to write accompanying text? I’ll do the bare minimum and let these photos speak their thousands of words… Here’s Ruby Rose of OITNB.
And Ruby Rose with her fiancee Phoebe Dahl…
Lena Dunham was on The Late Late ToNight Show with Jimmy Fallon and OMG she looks so beautiful… radiant… chic… oh, basically the embodiment of a Pixie. Rock on, Lena!
I don’t think I have to say much more here than OMFG LILY COLLINS IS KILLIN’ IT WITH HER PIXIE CUT! Just look at the gorgeous photos she posted on Instagram…
I was looking for some good Pixie Inspiration to post and I came across this photo on the Interweb…
Wow, how beautiful is she? Love the whole look: the red lips, the retro sweater. I clicked on the image but it just took me to… Pinterest. I can’t figure that thing out. Millions of pics, can’t find this specific one, even if I could, would it just bounce me back to another Pinterest page?
I give up. Pinterest is like, what, a virtual bulletin board, right? I have a real bulletin board. It’s hanging on the wall next to my desk as I write this. Grumble…. luddite… grumble…. But I’d love to feature more photos of this VIP. Gentle readers, if you can trace the origins of this photo, please give me a heads up at email@example.com or visit me on the ol’ Book of Faces!
The new Alex Garland film Ex Machina is totally awesome on lots of different levels. But hey, you don’t come here for my movie reviews. So can we talk about Ava’s sexy Pixie crop? Ava, you see, is a robot (played beguilingly by Alicia Vikander). When she dresses up to impress a visitor, she wisely chooses a pretty frock, a cardigan, and… a Pixie wig. You’d think there’d be scads of photos of her like this on the web, but could it be that no one is as occupied with that particular aspect of the movie as me? And, of course, 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.
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!
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!
*”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!
