BEAUTY BAR: The Power Pixie

It’s that time of year: exams are over, your stress is gone and you are ready for a new ‘do. A new hairdo equals a new you and why not take that bold step with a new haircut? You can pull all different kinds of inspiration from celebrities and top models. It’s your time to go wild.

This Fashionista is sporting a pixie cut with killer bangs. This cut is powerful and will definitely turn heads. Just consider all of the powerful women who have rocked this look: Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus and Keira Knightley. All these women turn heads because of their own personal confidence.

When I met this Fashionista, I knew she was confident and strong just like the celebrities I listed. She is an international student pursuing her Masters in Public Relations at Michigan State University and this is her first semester in the United States. She is thrilled to be trying something new by studying her graduate degree abroad.

There are plenty of variations of the pixie cut to cater to your style. If you are looking for a more classic pixie, Anne Hathaway can give you some inspiration. For a softer look, a side swept bang can look extremely elegant. If you are looking to put a little glam-rock in your look, try a side-parted pixie with a semi-spiked bang.
