Pixie Perfect: What to Consider Before The Cut
It’s not old news just yet: short hair has continued to take Hollywood by storm. From JLaw to Jennifer Hudson, Tinseltown’s lovely ladies have opted for the chop for various reasons – causing searches for “pixie haircut” on the web to multiply… 500x higher than from this time last year!
PRAVANA Stylist Jamie Muniz shared tips to consider if you are thinking about following the pixie trend yourself.
(Hair) Damage Control: Celebrities face the challenge of maintaining healthy locks despite frequent – and oftentimes drastic – hair color changes that can ultimately lead to over-processed hair. A pixie is a good way to rid yourself of unhealthy hair for a fresh start. Jennifer Lawrence admitted that the inspiration behind her new ‘do was because her hair was damaged.
Consider This: Losing a good amount of length, especially if hair is damaged, can be very liberating but also leave you feeling exposed. Long hair can be a security blanket and veil for some, so short cuts are great for ladies who are comfortable with their features. It’s also perfect for ladies that are constantly on-the-go because it is often easier to style. However, short hair does require daily attention as well.
Speak to your Stylist: If you’re thinking about making the change, talk to your stylist about variations of shorter styles that will suit your features. A short bob is great on just about any face, and the shorter-through-the-side cuts can really draw up your jaw and cheekbones (case in point: Jennifer Hudson and Kristin Chenoweth).
