Subject: Below Shoulders to Short Pixie Tomorrow
Date Posted: February 04 2009 at 3:27pm
Firstly, yes I am brand new to the site. Exciting I know!! ;)
 
Secondly as the title states yes I'm going from below the shoulders to a short pixie cut tomorrow. I'm extremely tired with the hassle of long hair. The up keep is just too much. Also I want something for when I go away to mexico I wont have to worry about a frizzy mess after swimming.
 
Anyways on to the show...
 
Here is my hair now after it has been blowdried with a round brush and srtraitened. Burgandy/Auburn Dec. 08
 
http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v1951/125/85/589360056/n589360056_5338600_1119.jpg - http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v1951/125/85/589360056/n589360056_5338600_1119.jpg
 
My hair air dried Red/Brown June. 08
 
http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v286/125/85/589360056/n589360056_3550957_5812.jpg - http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v286/125/85/589360056/n589360056_3550957_5812.jpg
 
Now my only question is, keep the Burgandy colour I have now, go back to my natural medium brown/red, or go white blonde?
 
I've fallen in love with the white blonde Pixies that I've seen, I was blonde as a child , but am unsure if I could pull it off now.
 
So what do you all think? :)

How short are you going?  I think that matters.  I am a fan of white blonde also but if it is a longer pixie, I think you would be better off keeping some color

I want to get it cut really short.. then I might let it grow to a longer pixie for summer time
 
This is the length I had back in 2002: http://photos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v2192/125/85/589360056/n589360056_5777543_6057.jpg - http://photos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v2192/125/85/589360056/n589360056_5777543_6057.jpg

Looking at your skin and eyes, I think you are better to keep the darkness.  Just my personal feelings.  Or what about a dark red?

Red/Burgandy is possible.. It's what I have now.. and my eyes are generally green so it is always a great colour on me. I'm a little tired of it though.. have had it since August now.
 
Hmmm we shall see.. maybe Ill have my stylist hold colour sample to my face.. haha it's like painting!!
 
 
Back with the Bright Red.. http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v363/125/85/589360056/n589360056_4917307_9214.jpg - http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v363/125/85/589360056/n589360056_4917307_9214.jpg
 
and the natural red.. http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v353/125/85/589360056/n589360056_4756520_8555.jpg - http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v353/125/85/589360056/n589360056_4756520_8555.jpg

I think the darker is better.  I really like auburn color on you.  Since you are tired of it maybe just a different tone would be enough change - especially with the big change in hair length.

Thanks Loveshorthair,
 
I do agree I look good with dark hair.. but the blonde is so appealing.. maybe because its a drastic change for me I don't know..
 
Here is a picture of me from when I lived in Florida, my hair from swimming and being out in the sun got really light in colour. Was not dyed at all.

I can't wait to see your new pixie! I hope you enjoy your new look

wow, you are very cute and can def. pull off a pixie no problem.
i say the darker colors go better with your eyes.
why not try an angled short bob first with a clippered nape ?
it might be nice to still have a little length in front and have the back nice and short.
do you have any pics of your hair short w/ out the headband?
good luck!!!
make sure you take lots of pics for us to see

Long with BLUNT bangs or ALL cut to lip length, I cant decide my favorite!

OH MY! You look really great. The cut really suits you. I think you should try the platinum blonde, that will really turn heads.

Now that I see the pics - a lot shorter than I imagined.  I say that maybe the platinum blonde color would be a good choice.  Be careful that it isn't too white othewise you might look bald.

I wanted to do the platinum blond but it looked good the colour it was so I left it. When it grows out a little I might consider chopping it and then go platinum :)

Thanks everyone for you nice comments :)
 
I have gotten a lot of compliments on my hair since the cut. I was even stopped in a mall and asked if I would be a makeup model for Mac on a weekend. Which is damn cool if you ask me lol..
 
And as for the going blonde, I am indeed going to try it , but in time. I want to let the red grow out first. Don't want to over process my hair and then be bald haha
 
Anyways, if you guys want more pictures, have any requests or questions feel free to send them my way :)
 
Take care fellow Hair Lovers!mrsrabbit

Petite,

You're asking if we want more pics?  Of course we would love to see any pics you're willing to share with us!

From the pics you have posted you are one of those lucky ladies who can wear almost any length or style.  We would love to see how you change your hair as time goes by.  I love the red but I look forward to seeing the blonde at some point in the future.

Are you going to do the makeup model thing?   Would love to hear how that goes.

It has to be obvious from all the compliments you have gotten that you look amazing with your new cut.  Please keep us up to date!

     Well, I loved your long hair, but I can understand why the short-hair lovers are thrilled. I think that few women pull off that look impressively, but you do. Blessings, Bob Big%20smile

Bob S I must agree with you. I have been holding back and just reading the post. I will say Hold off on the blond thing. I feel its a fad that is going away. You do have the facial features for this cut. i do have one question though. Why such a change? It is not often one does this but when she does it usually is a result of a divorce, anger, revenge or just need a change. Just wondering. It does look great and it seems the stylist did a great cut-> ENJOY IT :-)
