Do You Love the Pixie Cut?

I first chopped my hair in high school a la Winona Ryder, then in college it was the Samaire Armstrong faux-hawk. I always grew it out because there weren’t many girls with the pixie cut during the late 98’s and early 00’s era of long highlighted Britney Spears tresses.

About 4 years ago suddenly inspired by Selma Blair’s bleached ‘do I randomly chopped in again in my bathroom which gave my then bf quite a shock. It was the most liberating feeling to not care what society thinks a beautiful woman should look like and my confidence went gone through the roof! Lately I’ve been noticing more women joining the pixie revolution… its like a secret society… giving each other an nod as our hairless heads meet. I feel there is more of an acceptance for the ‘do and I haven’t had the desire to grow it since. When it was long it took me an average of 15-20 minutes to style my hair with 6 products, blowdry and iron which has been dwindled down to on wash of Dr. Bronner’s, cream wax, comb and go! I get compliments on a daily basis equally from men and woman. I rarely am mistaken for a lesbian (was pretty bummed at Pride when the woman kept stating I looked “stiff” [meaning straight]) or a boy, if so its usually old men or young boys who aren’t quite in my date interest anyway!

    1, Is it okay for a guy to have long hair or have it in a ponytail?

    2. For guys, how much should they shave around their ponytail; just above the ears or have only the top of the head in a tail.

    *On the way to going all natural (no perm in over a year)
    *Uses flat iron about once a week to straighten hair out.

    So here’s the thing. Back when I had relaxed hair I wore my hair in a ponytail for about a month straight because I needed a touch up and it didn’t look good to wear it down. By time I finally got a perm my stylist told me the middle of the back broke off because I wore ponytails too much. Now that I don’t perm my anymore and flat iron it to straighten it the humidity really messes it up when I wear it down so now I wear it in a ponytail a lot. My question is, even though my hair isn’t permed but I straighten it and put it in a ponytail will it still break off?? Please help because I don’t know what to do!!! Thanks!

    Hi everyone, tomorrow I have to wear a jersey to school for my soccer game. I just got out of the shower so I need quick answers. Should i blowdry and straighten my hair and put it up for tomorrow or leave it curly and up in a ponytail?

    I love to blow dry my hair and style it for school, but I have PE first hour and I have to put it up or else it gets nasty. And when I take it down, I have this awful ponytail line!! Suddenly all of that styling goes to waste.

    Any suggestions for ways I could put my hair up that won’t leave any crimps in my hair? Thanks!

    P.S. I’ve tried clamps, clips, and headbands. Nothing works!
