Taking the plunge to get a pixie takes a lot of courage. A pixie cut is quite a commitment. If you have medium-to-long locks, it can take several years for your hair to grow out to its original length after you crop it into a pixie.
Even so, pixie cuts have remained one of the top trends in the world of women’s hairstyles for years–and for good reason. They’re edgy, stylish, timelessly trendy and, above all that, they’re incredibly quick and easy to manage. Having a pixie cut will shave enough time off your morning routine that you’ll be able to hit that snooze button a few more times when you’re cozy in bed on an early morning.
