Here we go...
1. When and why did you first start thinking about getting a pixie cut?
I first thought about getting my hair cut this time around for a few weeks. I've previously had my hair cut really short two times before this and I never enjoyed it because it was never cut in a way that complimented my face shape and personal style! This time around I researched cuts for my face shape for a while beforehand.
2. When did you first cut your hair short?
First time ever? Just before Indoor Nationals about 4 or 5 years back.
3. How did you feel when you were sitting in the chair for that first time?
I was really excited. This time around, it felt charged with ownership, I felt empowered and sassy and when I was done I felt more like me than I have in a long time.
4. How did your friends and family react to your pixie cut?
It has gotten nothing but compliments, people who have told me I look really well. I have also been told that it looks "right" on me, like I should have had this cut all the time.
5. Who was your inspiration for a pixie cut?
I adored when Kaley Cuoco cut her hair into a pixie, it looked so sexy and fun on her. I loved Emma Watsons cut when she finished Harry Potter, and I cannot begin to tell you how many other beautiful ladies rock or have rocked, the short 'do... Miley Cyrus, Carey Mulligan, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, oh I could go on forever!! Also, I really enjoyed searching for "#pixiecut" tag on Instagram to find lovely pictures of ordinary ladies, also rocking the every day pixie!
6. Post a photo of your before and after!
|Before (Mid February 2016)|
|After (End of March 2016)|
The first time I grew it out slightly and cut it back to a pixie again to get rid of a horrendous dye job. The second time, I grew it out way past my shoulders and then cut it into a bob before I went and cut it this time.
8. What is one thing you love and one thing you hate about having a pixie cut?
I love that I can just get up and put on my makeup and my hair is done with absolutely no effort on my part, I hate that people make assumptions about my sexuality or my personality, especially when they see my hair and my tattoos. Lads, I'm straight, I've got a lovely boyfriend. I'm also not an arrogant asshole and I'm just more colorful than the average Joe. I've got good manners, I'm friendly. My hair does not in any way void that.
9. Word of advice for anyone who wants a pixie?
Go for it, it's chic, it's girly, it can be badass and it's so liberating. If you think you need your long curly blonde hair to be beautiful, think again, you're beautiful no matter what!Also, if you really need to hear this, in the immortal words of Jenny from Sabrina The Teenage Witch - Hair grows.
