When people are growing their hair out from a pixie cut they usually hate the first few months while they wait for the length of the sides and top to catch up with the back, but this is also the time when they’ll get the most complements. As the front grows, if you continue to cut the back length (which will otherwise turn into a mullet) the result is a crisp bob-like line in the nape with piecey sides, a long bang, and lots of texture. Its fun, feminine, and carefree. But you don’t have to go pixie-short first to achieve this look, learn more in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
