While watching the Academy Awards, with all the celebrity women and their long tresses, there was one woman who captured my attention. That woman was Carey Mulligan. She was so poised in her gown, but what I loved most was her cropped Pixie cut. She really stood out among the other lovely women because she had this sort of raw elegance about her.
Don’t be afraid to try something daring. Even if you have long locks you can’t seem to part with, try a mod heavy fringe. Or donate your long healthy hair to a charity such as Locks For Love, so that way you feel good about the tremendous change you are undertaking. Also, a short crop can feel so liberating, add a ton of style, and is usually easier to deal with at 5am when you’re getting ready for work.
Short hair has come a long way from the boyish masculine crops of the old days. With soft fringe and texture it can feel even more feminine than the long boring ponytail. And don’t think that a big forehead or round cheeks can keep you from clipping those tresses. Many women can wear a shorter cut, and usually look leaner, more vibrant, and very smart!
Would you consider chopping your hair into a pixie style cut? If not, would you consider making another major hairstyle change?
