Anne Hathaway’s Pixie

While we’re on the subject of hair, can I express just how badly I want Anne Hathaway’s pixie cut? I’ve been thinking about this long and hard, and here are my thoughts on the matter.

Reasons why I should go for Anne Hathaway’s pixie cut.

1. It is something completely unexpected for me.

2. It would be a breeze to style. Can you imagine how much time I would save?

3. I could have my own Audrey Tatou moment in time.

4. It’s very rare to see a pixie cut where I live. I mean, it’s ORANGE COUNTY, the land of double process and hair extensions.

5. D is totally on board.

Reasons why I should not go for Anne Hathaway’s pixie cut.

1. I don’t look like Anne Hathaway.

Unfortunately, I think we have a winner, folks.

Thoughts? Would you ever cut a pixie?

    While you don’t look exactly like Anne Hathaway, I do think you have several of the qualities I consider ideal for pulling off a pixie cut: you have large, beautiful eyes, a small head/face, and a long neck. You would look GREAT with a hair cut similar to hers.

    You are beautiful no matter what but would you consider donating you hair if you chopped it? A beautiful gift indeed :)

      Absolutely! If I do, I will be donating to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. :)

    I cut my pixie about a year ago, and I love it with all my heart!

    From someone else who lives in OC…

    First off, I love the idea of more women in OC having less hair. The sector of the OC population that has Barbie doll-like hair is overwhelming and just seems to continue to grow (pun intended–I think of those dolls we used to play with that had the “growing hair” that you could pull out from the hole in their head!) It would be good for our daughters to see more OC women sporting different looks.

    Secondly, I can’t claim success with short hair like most of the other gals who commented here. I have a prominent nose, large hooded eyes, and average mouth and cheekbones. As much as I’d like to say I still feel pretty with less hair, I don’t. I need more hair to balance my features. It truly is a question of balance for someone with my features.

    As for you, you don’t have the same need for balance as I do. Your face is already balanced without a frame of hair.

    I know it’s not as simple as a math equation, but in your case, you are already equal on all sides. And in non-math terms, you’re downright gorgeous. Go for it!!!

    I said no on FB and I’ll give you my 2 cents. I tried this cut in college….yes, 1993. My hair is similar to yours and there’s a lot of it. I struggled with keeping it from looking fresh and not poofy (not a great word but you get it). It has to be really short to keep it awesome looking like Ann. Your beautiful face will look good framed by any hairstyle! Looking forward to seeing your results if you go through with it.

    I didn’t intentionally cut my hair into a pixie, but when I got cancer and cut it short preemptively, I got more compliments than I ever did with long hair, which I’d had all my life. As it started to grow back in between treatments, women would stop me in the grocery store at least once a week to ask where I got my hair cut. I always expected them to ask about cancer, but it was always about my cute pixie cut (guess the illness wasn’t as obvious as I thought).

    Now I’m nearing the end of treatment again + would give anything for hair at all!

    Agree with all the comments that you are beautiful and can pull anything off – go for it!

    I got my pixie haircut over the summer and I still absolutely love it. However, my hair has never been as long and as pretty as yours aka I haven’t done a shampoo commercial. :) I think you’d look gorgeous with a pixie though!

    You are not helping! I made an appointment to get a pixie just before New Year’s, then cancelled at the last minute. I’ve had a pixie many times and I am trying to rock the long hair right now but seeing Anne Hathaway everywhere has still left me undecided. Somehow with shorter hair, I feel more edgy and stylish. Sigh…

    You can see the original cut here: http://www.boobyandthebeast.blogspot.com/2011/09/chemo-cut.html. Looking back, I actually think it was cuter even shorter than this. So I guess I can thank cancer for that?

    Can’t wait to see what you decide!

    I say go for it! I am fully prepared to do it myself one day in the not-so-distant future. (Aka: the next time my mangey kid brings home head lice from school and we all get it. I am going to do it then.)

    Please, please, please, do it! You would look AMAZING with a pixie. Jump in with both feet and don’t look back!

    Oh, I think you’d be gorgeous with a pixie! If my hair were a different texture, I’d do it, but with my unruly waves, I feel like it might be too…poofy on me.

    I’ve been tempted by a pixie cut for years… but my husband thinks he would hate it. But lately, with a very grabby 4-month-old, I’m getting very tired of ponytails!

    But I think I’d have to color my hair to pull of a pixie too. And that starts making the easy maintenance thing diminish.
