But getting to back to being bored with my hair, I decided to cut it really short. I have been wanting to try a pixie cut for so long but still wasn't sure it would suit me, or better yet, if I can carry it. What I was sure was that I wanted a shorter hairstyle.
The hairstylist on my 1st attempt said a pixie would look good for my face and my frame. But he was scared for me. It was a drastic change. I agreed. We both decided that I should start with something a little longer than a pixie. So I got myself a bob.
A month after, I was sure I was ready for a pixie cut. Tadah!
Simply Rins braved a pixie cut!
I got mixed reactions from family and friends. But I'm so glad that my pixie got many compliments. And I am particularly thankful to those that gave me that nudge I needed to have the confidence to finally did this. I have no regrets.
I know that changing one's hairstyle is scary, especially with something as drastic as a pixie. It is important to find a good hairstylist that would be honest with you and would know how to assess what would suit you best. Sometimes what we want for ourselves is not exactly was is best for us. If nail art is an expression of our individuality, our hairstyle is a statement of who we are too.
But a hairstylist can only do so much. I think the big part should come from us. I knew the consequences of getting a pixie. One of which is changing the way I dress. I'm used to wearing shirt and jeans/shorts almost all the time. I need to be more feminine with the way I look. I really don't mind the change. One of my friends gave me an advise that really stuck. He said that I need to own it to be able to carry the pixie cut with confidence. I'm getting there. I've realized that this got a lot of getting used to. But I'm loving it every passing day.
I've waited long enough for a pixie.
There are many things I love about a pixie cut. But what I like about it most is how little time I need to fix my hair now. I use styling hair products now and I really don't mind. Styling a pixie is not as hard. And I figured it looks more interesting than having my longer hair before that was tied in a ponytail almost everyday!
I know that it would take me a long time to wear my hair long again. For the meantime, I am enjoying my pixie cut.
