Long hair is often thought of as the epitome of youth and femininity. Although I have been trying to grow my hair longer for years, I (like many other Fashionistas I know) have also toyed with the idea of chopping off my long locks. I have gone to the hairdresser ready to tell her I want a pixie cut, but there is always something that holds me back from actually doing it. Either I’m afraid it will be too short or I’m afraid it won’t grow back or I’m afraid of how it will look on me… While I have never been courageous enough to opt for a shorter haircut, short hair is one way to make a lasting statement. Not only does it look great on certain Fashionistas, it also proves a Fashionista’s boldness, individuality and unwavering confidence.
I have known this Fashionista for about two years now, and if there is one thing I do know about her, it’s that her hair is always changing. While her personal style has remained consistently edgy and alternative, the color, length or styling of this Fashionista’s hair is always different. This Fashionista values her wardrobe for the statements it can make, but she also uses her hair to express herself.
While not all Fashionistas would have the guts to cut their hair in an asymmetrical pixie cut as this edgy Fashionista did, there is a shorter hair cut for every style. Anne Hathaway recently showed how to make a pixie cut feminine and soft, while Miley Cyrus recently opted for an edgier, shaggy look. Michelle Williams is famous for her super-short cute and boyish hair, while Hayden Panettiere has recently featured a sleek and ultra-feminine slicked-back pixie cut.
When considering a shorter hairdo, be sure to also consider the shape of your face. Don’t be afraid to take risks, and remember that not everyone longs for the longer hair.
