When it comes to haircuts, I’m a pretty classic girl and I like my wavy, frizzy hair more on the long side. But short haircuts seem to be making a comeback this year as more and more famous ladies chop off their long locks in favor of a more or less radically short pixie cut.
The ‘pixie cut’ became a fashionable haircut statement ever since the 50s when Audrey Hepburn’s really short hair made all the hair rage after her Roman Holiday movie. Mia Farrow is one of the original pixie girls and an entire plethora of famous beautiful ladies followed suit along the years among which Twiggy, Jean Shimpton, Kate Moss or more recently Natalie Portman or Emma Watson. The short haircut fashion keeps coming back, it’s up to us whether we choose to follow it or not.
The latest adepts of the pixie cuts are: Beyonce and Coco Rocha. However, I also threw two more in the mix, for inspirations reasons – Miley Cyrus and Robin Wright.
Same happened with Emma Watson and Miley Cyrus before them. A long look back will teach us something about our modern culture as well: while pixie cuts were made popular by movie stars and their respective movies, now it’s all about the social and the forthcoming. When Karlie Kloss cut her hair, Vogue had it all covered!
When Beyonce cut her hair, the media pointed the finger with an all-knowing superiority claiming that Beyonce wore wigs anyway. As far as Coco Rocha’s short hair goes, she called it herself a ‘mini Tilda’ in homage to Tilda Swinton’s trademark short bob with rebel fringe on the side. As it’s all a matter of personal choice and perspective, I was curious if you ever had short hair and if so why and if the answer is no: would you consider the pixie cut in the near future?
