Hair Trend Alert: The Pixie Cut

Pixie Cut Trend

When Beyonce chopped off her hair last week, it was one of the most shocking celebrity haircuts in quite a while. In all honesty, the cut was likely a combination of removing extensions and cutting some hair, but the results were surprisingly (Sasha) Fierce, and I’m excited to see Queen Bey rock her shorter ‘do–especially since many people associate her entire persona with her gorgeous long hair.

And right on Mrs. Carter’s heels was another dramatic hair change: Model Coca Rocha cut her mid-length tresses into a edgy cut–super short around the sides with a bit more length on the top. Keeping the extra length on the top will allow for lots of variety at photoshoots (as Coco has already revealed via Instagram), and the shorter length shows off the model’s striking bone structure far more than her previous look.

By cutting off their locks, these two ladies have joined the ranks of stars who have dared to go super short.

Robin Wright has been rocking a pixie for about a year now, and she showed off her low maintenance crop once again this week on the red carpet.

And Ginnifer Goodwin, who has one of the most famous (and long-lasting) pixie cuts in Hollywood loves her short cut so much that she actually writes it into her filming contracts–she gets to keep the hair short and wear wigs for roles!

To keep your own pixie looking chic day after day, use Short Sexy Hair Quick Change Shaping Balm to create a style that is easily reactivated the next day, and to shape your hair and hold it in place, Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Dry Sculpting Pomade is a great option. If it’s moisture and shine you want, try Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey.

So what do you think? Are all these ladies rocking the short hair, or do you prefer them with longer locks?

    I love short hair. I, myself, vaccilate between long and short all the time, but I definitely prefer it short. It’s easier, and I think it’s a lot more styled when I wear it short, b/c when it’s longer I tend to be lazy and just pull it back into a pony tail. I am especially impressed that Beyonce cut hers b/c it is such a part of her identity. Quite brave, and of course, fierce!

    I really dislike robin w’ crop and really do not think it does her any favours. I wish however Sharon Stone would cut her hair short again.

      Lee Ann, totally agree with both comments.

    I can’t wait to see Bey make her first public appearance with the new crop. When I think of some of her past outfits it’s the big Dallas hair that makes them cheesy.

    I personally find only very few women have the face to successfully pull off short hair–if they do it looks divine, but far less than those who try actually do. Out of these only Coca Rocha gets away with it for me.

    I’m loving this short hair trend. It is flattering to most faces and gives those fried ends and extensions a quiet passing. I wish a few more celebs would consider joining the group.
