Should I Go Short?

5 Questions To Ask Before going to the Hair Salon For a Pixie Cut

Tons of celebs are sporting Pixie cuts, they’re all over Hollywood. Maybe you have been thinking about going to see your favorite stylist at your hair salons to have him or her emulate this ongoing style trend. But should you? Cutting off large quantities of hair can be invigorating and liberating, but it can also be scary as hell … I mean, there is a lot of time invested into your long, beautiful hair. So, before you chop it off, you may want to ask yourself a few questions.

1. Is Your Life Stable?

Sometimes we feel the need to have control of something, anything and make a drastic physical change … like cutting off all of our hair when things may not be going that well in our lives. This is particularly true after breakups or other big changes. The Chop may feel like a great fresh start, but then be heavily regretted later. When making this decision, make sure that you are not doing it impulsively or for the wrong reasons.

2. Are You Ready For A Bit More Maintenance?

Many people think that by cutting your hair short, you are making it lower maintenance. But the opposite is true. Sure, you spend less time shampooing and blow drying, but it usually takes longer to style, and you’ll need to visit the salon more often for upkeep trims.

3. Ready To Give Up Braids, Buns, and Pony Tails?

This kind of goes back to the maintenance that we mentioned above. You’ll no longer be able to just wake up and quickly put your hair up into your favorite, go-to bun, you’ll have to style it every day except for hat day!

4. Do Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence’s Pixie Cuts Give You Hair-envy?

If you don’t get some extreme hair-envy when you see these two, you might want to reconsider. If you are neither here nor there on these two hot celebs’ hair, think about how often you have imagined yourself with a similar short cut and how you felt about it. If your answer is, ‘a lot’ then you are probably ok, if the answer is, ‘not often’ refer back to #1.

.5 Your Hair Might Freak Out

Are you prepared to have your hair freak out? When you leave the salon you will feel pounds lighter and much freer, but your hair probably won’t be on the same page with you just yet. It will take more than a few washings to get your hair to start its new growth patterns and you may have to change up your whole hair care regime as shorter hair can get oily and dirty much quicker.

If you have come out on the positive end of all of these questions, go ahead and hack away! If you are somewhere in the middle, you might want to take it slow. Take a little off and go to a mid-length so that you can get used to the shorter hair lifestyle a little bit at a time.
