Now, on to another important love, HAIR!!
Pixie haircuts seem to be all the new rage if you can actually take the plunge and go for the big chop. I personally think most of the pixie cuts that I have seen on celebrities and even a few of our fellow fashion bloggers are incredibly adorable and sassy. Think of how simple life would be if you didn't have to use a whole bottle of shampoo a month and your hair-styling routine was only a mere 5 minutes long! (No ladies, we are not talking ponytails - I have my own opinions about the regular ponytail but I will refrain this time) You cut put a little product in, finger dry, and voila! You have super cute amazing Halle Berry pixie hair!
You have to remember a couple of KEY points before taking this very brave style on.
1. It will be face forward for this style, so be prepared for your face to be your main feature now.
2. You HAVE to be prepared to wear some kind of make-up. I am a little bit of a make-up queen but I will let those little naturalistas get away with mascara, a little eyeliner, and lipgloss!
3. Go to a professional hairstylist that you REALLY trust! This haircut is not for any ol' hair stylist, it takes a lot of work to get all those short layers to lay just right.
4. Wear jewelry - most likely earrings will do the trick.
5. Be confident! - this is a woman's number one accessory for any hairstyle.
Here are a few of my favorite celebrities that have rocked this pixie cut with no problems!
The always beautiful Carey Mulligan with her light platinum locks. She kills it. Notice how she enhances her eyes with deep dark smokey hues and flaunts those huge chandelier earrings.

It doesn't matter what color hair or cut Rihanna has. She will always look flawless. This cut is one of my favorites on her though. Notice her eyes are very played up.

Victoria Beckham is the queen of hairstyles! As soon as she cuts her hair, everyone is running to the salon asking for the new "Victoria." I love how she uses her hand band here to add femininity to her short crop. She is also the queen of the dark eyes!

The ultimate pixie wearing diva, Halle Berry. Gorgeous! Enough said.

And let's not forget our very own wonderful fashion blogger Karla from Karla's Closet. Not only does she exude chicness and panache, she rocks the hottest pixie cut in the blogosphere!

I also wanted to share with you all a super short, edgy pixie cut I did on one of my clients about a month ago. Now, she warned me that when we were going to cut her hair that she was going to want it cut VERY short. She wanted to make sure that I was prepared. Well, I am not going to lie, when I realized just how short she wanted to go I was a little reluctant, but she was absolutely confident that this is what she wanted and she had thought about it for a very long time. It took us about three rounds of cutting to finally get it as short as she wanted, but we got there!! She has the most beautiful face and stunning smile and pulls this cut off like no other mother I have ever known. She is one of my favorite clients and I look forward to every single appointment that we have together!
Here is Becky's before picture. She pretty much had a bob with short side bangs.
This is Becky after we were done. (Remember it took me 3 haircuts to get here!!)
So my question to you all is what do you think of the pixie? And would you ever consider doing it yourself or leave it to the others!!??
