Deciding whether or not to go for a short haircut can be hard. While there are a few ways to help you fake a cute crop in order to gauge how you feel about it, there's no way to know for sure until you make the cut. Although a pixie may seem especially intimidating, you might just be surprised by how versatile the style can be.
