Are you wondering if you should change up your hairstyle? If you’re going for the chop, there are definitely a few things you will need to consider. So before you head to the salon, be sure to read through these 7 tips if you’re thinking of getting a pixie cut!
1. Be sure.
A pixie cuts are a big deal! If you’ve always been used to having hair that is past your shoulders, do a little soul searching to make sure this is the right cut for you. There is nothing worse than regretting a haircut, and growing out a pixie cut can take a while.
2. Find out what face shape you have.
A helpful thing to do when deciding if you want to get a pixie cut is to look up your face shape. Some long pixie cuts or short pixie cuts look best depending on your shape. Once you figure what your face shape is, you can look up celebs or hair models with the same shape to see how it looks! For round faces, Ginnifer Goodwin is a good example. And for ovals, try looking at Katy Perry’s new ‘do!
3. Make sure you are going to a hairdresser you trust.
This is most likely going to be a drastic change for your look, so make sure you trust your hairdresser. You will definitely want to have someone who knows what they’re doing chop off all of your locks. (And maybe to hold you hand right before you do it!)
5. What kind of upkeep are you going to have to do.
If you regularly dye or bleach your hair, you may want to consider what getting a pixie cut means for your color. Ask your hairstylist about what kind of upkeep this will be.
6. Consider your lifestyle.
A shorter hairstyle could possibly effect your current lifestyle. If you are a fitness junkie, will it bother you while you work out? Or will it make things easier? Even though a haircut may not seem like a big deal, it could effect you in ways you hadn’t considered.
7. Ask yourself why you want to get a pixie cut.
If you want to change up your look and do something different, then absolutely go for it! But if you doing it because you of anyone but yourself, take some more time to think about it. Pretty much everyone has had a bad haircut due to a terrible breakup, or changed their hair to please someone else. This new look should be for you and only you!
