A year with a pixie cut

This week marks a year since I cut my hair off. That seems pretty crazy, right? I learned a lot since taking the plunge, but most of all I've learned how much I love having short hair.

I'm not much of a stylist, so the pixie suits me very well. It takes no time to style and I almost never have to wash it. It looks good with minimal effort and makes my outfits have an edge that I never had before. While much more of my face is on display (and that's so scary), having a pixie has taught me to really dig myself. I focus less on my insecurities and more on just owning it. I know not everyone has deep rooted insecurities about their hair and a pixie might not be the solution, but for me, it was necessary.

I never did anything too different with my pixie, but it grows a lot and sometimes that morphed my hair into a brand new look. Sometimes I rolled with it and others, I cut it shorter. Mostly, I let my stylist do with it what she wanted. I mostly go for the "messy" look, but I also wear a lot of headbands and beanies. I try and "mix" it up and by that I mean, I wear different headbands.

Here's a round-up of some of my favorite pixie looks from the super short to the incredibly long.

  4. This post has me seriously considering cutting my hair off...seriously, it sounds amazing. I've become rather attached to my hair and it's more of a security blanket than anything...perhaps it's time to snip it off. Gah!
    Anyway, I've loved seeing your pixie and how it's developed. It seems odd to think it's only been a year that you've had it - I can't imagine you any other way now!

  5. I'm glad that you're still in love with your hair. It seems to compliment everything you wear! (And coming from someone with a pixie, I know it's a thin line between a cute outfit and accidentally looking like Justin Bieber in a dress. lol)

  6. Gah! It makes me want to cut my hair so badly! I've always had my hair short all through middle school and High School and even into College. I love pixie cuts and think yours is especially amazing with the longer length in the front and the color.

  8. Khi mang thai có nên ăn trứng vịt lộn
    Các mẹ hay quan tâm lúc mang thai nên ăn gì tốt cho tha nhi và sức khỏe. Nhiều món ăn giàu chất dinh dưỡng nhưng không phải món ăn nào là tốt cho sức khỏe bà bầu và thai nhi. Như thịt chó hay trứng vịt lộn. Nhiều câu hỏi đặc ra bà bầu có được ăn trứng vịt lộn? bà bầu có nên thịt chó không? cùng chúng tôi tìm hiểu qua bài viết sau nhé:
    1 . Trứng vịt lộn và chất dinh dưỡng trong trứng
    Trứng vịt lộn có tác dụng tu âm, dưỡng huyết, ích trí, giúp cơ thể nhanh tăng trưởng. Rau răm có tác dụng trừ hàn, tiêu thực, sáng mắt, sát trùng, mạnh chân gối, ấm bụng, chống đầy bụng khó tiêu...
    Gừng tươi có tác dụng kích thích tiêu hoá, mạnh tim, giải độc thức ăn, chống suy giảm tình dục... Theo quan niệm của y học cổ truyền món trứng vịt lộn ăn cùng gia vị là một bài thuốc, dùng chữa các chứng thiếu máu, suy nhược, còi cọc, đau đầu chóng mặt, yếu sinh lý…
    2. Vậy bà bầu có nên ăn trứng vịt lộn?
    Như chúng ta đã biết trứng vịt lộn chứa nhiều đạm và chất sắt, thực phẩm mát nên các bà bầu khi mang thai có thể ăn được trứng vịt lộn nhưng không nên ăn quá nhiều 1 lúc và thường xuyên. Nên ăn trứng chín và đang còn nóng đặc biệt không nên ăn kèm với rau răm. Không nên ăn trững vào buổi tối vì sẽ gây ứ bung khó tiêu. Tóm lại bà bầu có thể ăn được trứng vịt lộn nhưng không nên ăn quá nhiều nên ăn 1-2 quả trong 1 tuần.

  9. You look great with a pixie cut! Congrats on one year ;) I hear you about edging out your outfits. I've considered piercing my nose (like with a ring, not a stud) for a multitude of reasons, but the idea that it would give all of my uber feminine outfits an edge isn't lost on me either. I loved all of these photos of you! XO

  10. I love the pixie cut on you and you make me miss mine! I'll be chopping mine off again sometime though, I'm sure. I agree, I love the edge it gives every outfit and it's so easy to style. I like to just put some mousse in my hair, dry it, and go so pixies are perfect for that. This style just really really suits you and I'm glad you've embraced it! Happy 1 year pixieversary!
