The Pixie Cut

Yes, really. The pixie cut is a lot like horizontal stripes -- the common wisdom is that that look bad on plus size women, but the common wisdom is wrong. Pixie cuts aren’t for everyone with a round face, but I’ve seen it work on enough women to make it worth considering. It’s a bold look that’s sure to get attention. With long bangs and a little texture, a pixie can flatter a round face.

With a style this short, you’ll be getting a haircut every 4 weeks to maintain it. But you’ll be saving loads of time by not having to blow dry it, so it balances out.  Among my friends with ultra-short hair, it's also an open secret that with a haircut that focuses all the attention onto your gorgeous features, you're going to want to spend a little more time on makeup--especially around the eyes.
