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?

    I’ve had a pixie cut for the better part of the last 12 years, and I love it. It allows my fine, straight hair to actually have style rather than just lay limply. Just last week I asked my stylist to take it super short, like Hathaway’s in the denim shirt, and it’s awesome. I don’t even need to use the hair dryer. I just let it air dry while I get dressed and then tousle it with a little pomade.

    I think you do have a similar face shape to Anne’s so it would look good on you.

    i loved my pixie cut! as soon as i grow out and donate again, i’m planning on going back to it! you would be adorable! added bonus. donating your hair! my 10 year old is gearing up for her bat mitzvah project in 2 years by asking people to start growing out their hair or sending donations to her from now until then. she’s decided to send everything to Pantene after doing some research, too. if you’re interested, you could be one of her first donations!

    I love a pixie cut and you’d look great with one. The only problem is that you seem to like change when it comes to your hair and a pixie cut is so hard to grow out. Letting it grow out over your ears is the worse when you go that short. It is fun to have all the different phases of growing out, but it takes a lot of upkeep.

    And when you have short hair, there is some bed head involved. I find that the shorter my hair, the more styling is required as opposed to being able to wear a top bun or something easy like that.

    So…. we chatted about this. I’ve had them twice, and never really *loved* them either time, however, I actually liked the grow out phase (my hair is wavy and it worked well). I actually did it because I had been coloring my hair so much and just wanted a fresh start. (The first time was a TOTAL breakup haircut – ala Felicity).

    Anyway, my thing with the pixie is that I feel like you have to be made-up and “done” to make it look awesome. Like I can get away with scraggly longer hair and lipstick, but I always feel like with a pixie (or short hair cut), I’d need to wear more make-up and look more pulled together. (These are my own issues with it of course).

    I can’t wait to hear/see what you do!

    Can I vote no? Even Anne cried about that haircut. I always try to say something nice when someone makes a big change like that. I think that’s why people say they get so many compliments on their pixies. “Better you than me” is what I’m really thinking. They may have no need for my pity, but I always feel so sorry for people with short hair. It’s because I know how long it would take me to grow that out. FOREVER. My fringe will not grow for anything. And I take biotin. I don’t get it.

    When Katie Holmes cut her hair short, I said that will grow out before mine ever does, and sure enough….

      You feel sorry for people with short hair? That’s really kind of insulting, LOL! I am one of those people who have never gotten more compliments than when I have a pixie. I also have people asking for the name and number of my stylist, so I don’t think that’s just a “better you than me” comment. As far as growing it out – not everyone wants to. It’s part of my personal style, just as long hair is for others.

    I’m getting a pixie cut next Thursday and I’m terrified!!! I’ve been thinking about doing it for over a year now though and my hair’s just long enough to where I could probably donate it. I could stand to let it grow a few more weeks but I’ve decided now and just need to take the plunge. Wish me luck!!
