Getting a short haircut can be an exhilarating experience, but before you go ahead and get a pixie cut, there are a few things to consider. While this classic crop can help create a gorgeous signature look, it's not for everybody, so you need to make sure you're sure!

Styling time

If you don't like to spend much time styling your hair and have a texture that would require blowdrying and/or straightening in order to get the hairstyle you want, a pixie might not be the best option. That said, there are many textured short cuts that look great with curls and waves to investigate - just make sure you consult with your stylist to figure out what will work best for you.

Haircare

Washing and drying your hair will take less time than ever before, and it will be a lot cheaper because you'll need less shampoo and conditioner, too!

How to style it

With a pixie, you won't be able to cover up a bad hair day with a chic ponytail or cute braid. Instead, you'll have to style your hair to lay where you want it to. For this, Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel and TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty can be really useful, but you may have to lay the ground work with a flat iron first.

Hair growth

On average, hair grows at a rate of half an inch per month. This doesn't sound like a lot, but when your hair is only a few inches long, it's super noticeable. In short, your pixie could turn into a mullet before you know it if you skip regular trims!

Your face

With nothing to hide behind, your face will be center of attention. While not everyone will welcome this with open arms, it does create the perfect opportunity to be adventurous with your makeup!
