The new "Do"... the Pixie is back!

Seems like the new hair trend is to go short, really short! The pixie is back! I love short hair but it doesn't suit everyone & if I could I too would have short hair. However, because I have a bush on top of my head short hair is pretty hard for me to pull off. OK so I'm exaggerating (a bit) but I find short hair is alot of maintenance. And I'm quick to pull my hair in a ponytail whenever I don't have the patience to blow dry it, which is daily. For me the ponytail is my security blanket, easy, no fuss, & ready to go. However, it does get pretty boring & I've been in a "hair rut" for way too long. Therefore, I need some inspiration. But I don't think going as short as a pixie cut is the style for me & its not a matter of fear because hair does grow back its a matter of becoming a "hair product junkie". I already own far too much makeup for someone who doesn't even work in the industry (my room looks like a mini-Sephora warehouse) I don't need to add more fuel to the fire with hair products. Although, underneath my bathroom sink there's already enough hair products to last me a year (if not more).

Mia farrow's pixie haircut, 1960's

The pixie cut originated in the 1960's & Vidal Sassoon is credited with popularizing the cut, also know as the "elfin" cut. Actresses such as Mia Farrow, Audrey Hepburn, Goldie Hawn, & model Twiggy were the first to sport the new do. The latest celebrities to join the pixie cut trend are (friends?) Katie Holmes & Victoria Beckman.

Katie Holmes earlier this year with the bob (which I loved) & now her new pixie.

Victoria Beckman with her famous "victoria" bob (which I love too) & just recently the pixie.

Jennifer Anistons' "Rachel" & Farrah Fawcett's "Wings"

Past famous requested hairstyles: the "Rachel" on Jennifer Aniston, named after her character Rachel from Friends (just in case some of you have been living underneath a rock) & Farrah Fawcett's "Wings" made famous from the show "Charlie's Angels".

Which hairstyle did you prefer on Katie & Victoria? You know where I stand...hmm now if I could only find the right hairdresser to cut my hair into a bob. Any suggestions?
