Pixie and buzz cuts are undoubtedly dominating Hollywood right now! The list of names is extending day by day with Scarlett Johansson, Zoë Kravitz, Kristen Stewart, Katy Perry and Cara Delevingne gracing the top of it. Why the sudden urge to chop it all off and how do you decide whether it’s the next look for you?
Are you guilty of constant visits to the salon to bleach your hair or adjust your braids? These actions take toll on the hair, causing damage, frizz, breakage and worst case scenario, making hair strands fall off. A thing that unfortunately happened to Kravitz, which made her accept the fact and ultimately chop it all off and embrace a bold haircut.
So many decisions, so little time… The most time-saving hair style in the world is spelled short and neat. Just imagine a life with no more hours wasted on blow-drying or styling hair into sleek perfection. Ultimately, no more strands hanging in your face or making its way into your mouth while indulging in your favourite pizza. The possibilities are endless and the result inarguably liberating.
Accentuated facial features (hello razor sharp cheek bones!) adding a tough, yet feminine look to an overall appearance. According to hair stylist Larry King, the trend is part of fashion’s new androgyny, seeing girls opt for boyish cuts and boys adapt to longer hair. But it’s also such a simple matter as practicality. Additionally, the crop breathes and reflects a vision of power and ferocity, giving life to a woman who is fearless in her mind and actions.
