The Dramatic Haircut You'll Start Seeing a Lot More of These Next Few Months
Cliché dictates that pixie cuts are reserved for the Zoë Kravitzes and Cara Delevingnes of the world, or people with jawlines that look like they've been sculpted by Michelangelo himself, but anyone who's tried the haircut trend knows how baseless that line of thinking can be. In truth, pulling off a pixie comes down to two things: confidence, and the capacity for a major hair change.
And change, it seems, is exactly what people are looking for post stay-at-home orders. "Something about the pandemic fuelled us to chop our hair for a different look and sense of change," Michael Dueñas, celebrity hairstylist and cofounder of Support Creatives, so eloquently told POPSUGAR. That's why, now that salons are reopening across the country, pros are predicting you'll see a rise in pixie cuts and shorter hairstyles popping up on your feed in the coming months.
"Post-quarantine, I see women doing something drastic that they haven't tried before but have always wanted to."
"Post-quarantine, I see women doing something drastic that they haven't tried before but have always wanted to — taking a risk and letting themselves welcome new beginnings," said celebrity hairstylist and Unite hair ambassador Graham Nation. This style lets you be bold without buzzing it all off. Plus, he adds, it's easy to manage: "The pixie cut is totally chic and no fuss when it comes to styling. While wet, apply a detangling spray and rough dry into place. Once dry, add a small amount of pomade for a light hold that will last all day."
If you're looking to try out the trend yourself, you'll find plenty of pixie inspiration ideas ahead. No modelling contract (or Italian artist connections) required.
