What is a pixie haircut? How to wear it?
The pixie haircut is a chic retro short hair style with generally longer top and front strands. It has its origins in the 50s and 60s of the previous century when Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy made it popular on the American and European stages respectively. Since then, the XXS hairstyle is returning almost every decade to prove, once again, that hair doesn’t have to be long to look feminine.
Who could wear this haircut?
Like almost all short and very short haircuts, the pixie cut looks youthful and very playful. Best of all, it adapts easily to almost all textures and all types of hair, including thin hair. Women with round faces will be happy to discover that it is perfect for this “difficult” body type, but all face shapes can really benefit from it, depending on the specific shaping that you give it. In short, there’s a lot to love about the pixie haircut! But are there mistakes to avoid? How to wear it at 50 years or more? Here’s what the experts think…
Why opt for the pixie cut at 50?
Professional hairdressers agree that hair becomes thinner and less elastic with age. Fortunately, a pixie haircut for women in their 50s, when done properly, counters these effects, as it allows hair to look thicker and denser. In addition, thanks to the volume concentrated at the crown, it elongates the face, creating an unparalleled lifting effect. When well chosen and done, it can take 10 years off your face and make you look younger!
Add the ease of maintenance and you have the formula for hair success after the fifties! For best results, you will need to refresh your pixie cut every 4-6 weeks, which makes it more forgiving than most very short hairstyles. In the meantime, 10 minutes a day at most and you’re good to go!
Who should avoid it?
At the same time, we must take into account that the pixie, like all short haircuts, completely clears the face and neck, drawing attention to your features. Obviously, this can be something advantageous, but also means that less confident ladies will probably have to avoid it. In the end, it’s the girl who should own the hairstyle instead of being owned by it!
How to wear a pixie haircut at 50?
Experts recommend that ladies with long or very long hair gradually adopt the female pixie cut, especially after 50 or 60 years. Over the course of a few consecutive visits to the hairdresser, you can get a medium-length bob, a short bob and finally a pixie cut. Otherwise, you may be shocked by the big change and not be able to love your new look, even if it suits you perfectly.
