My wife has a hair appointment tomorrow and I think she has settled on a new hairstyle. It's a very short,choppy pixie:

I have always liked this haircut on Andrea Osvart; hope your wife looks as good as she does.  My wife had that haircut 20 years ago and I loved it then too. It's timeless.

My wife and I went to a new stylist this weekend, she showed the stylist the Andrea Osvart pic, and she just loved it. Twenty minutes later and a lot of hair on the floor she had the shortest haircut ever. She looks great. What do you guys think? I think I like this one even better than the heavy weight line mushroom cut.

very Nice. I do like it allot and it makes her very professional looking. It is much better that the mushroom cut. I am not a big fan of solid weight line. This cut has much more to offer and i sure she will receive lots of compliments. Thansk for sharing this picture with us.

Awesome! She looks awesome! I too am not a fan of the heavy weight line; a tapered cut is so much better. Thanks for sharing.

The cut looks great!!  How long was it before she cut it?  Did the stylists use clippers on the back and sides?  If so, what number guard?  You are a lucky man!!  Wish I could get my wife to go that short!!

Yes, the stylist used clippers on the sides and back. My wife asked her to use a #3 guard, but she said she doesn't use numbered guards. She would try 3/8" first. I know a #3 is 3/8", but I have never seen guards that look like the ones she used. They seem to cut shorter than standard guards. Her hair on the back and sides was well over an inch long and on the top it was about two and 1/2 inches, so a lot of hair was cut off. My only complaint about the cut was that she didn't clean up the hairline an the nape at all. Not much to complain about.

xxxzvp, I use a 3-1/2 blade for my classic 76 (snap on blades. I have had a few that asked aren't you going to use a guard? Till they understand that it is a 3/8 blade. When I cut my wife's with a 3/8 generally  I will use a #1-1/2 to clean up the edges, the razor the hairline. depending on the hair line I will use just a trimmer clipper on the hairline.  One way i do not like sideburns is when I see them cut straight across even with the top of the ear. I generally cut them square like as in a regular mans haircut or angle them at a 45* to the cheek bone.  Gaurds will vary from clipper to clipper.

My wife got her hair trimmed up yesterday, and it is every bit as short as the last cut. It seems the new stylists' clipper guards do cut shorter than standard guards. Even though she said she was using a 3/8" it is a lot closer to 1/4". She didn't  clean up the nape again,bummer. Mike, I too really like nice crisp sideburns, preferably cut square. I'm torn between this haircut and the heavy weight line mushroom cut, I really like that blunt line. Last night at Walmart I saw a lady with what was almost a boys bowlcut, a very heavy weight line cut about an inch above the ears all the way around, dipping down slightly across the back. The hair below was buzzed to about 1/8" and, WOW, a very striking haircut. Heres a pic of the most recent trim

Very nice.  A second trim in less than a month ... must mean she really likes the new style!!  Is she letting you trim/cleanup the nape?  My wife's stylist always leaves the nape a little shaggy and we always trim it up when she gets home.
