Created by ARROJO Studio SoHo colorist Meagan Behrent at the Best of the Best Show in Atlanta, we love the orangey hue in this pixie razor cut by Nick Arrojo. Orange is not normally a desirable hair hue, as it is most often associated with the brassy tones one finds when blondes go bad, but this is something different entirely. Dimensional, bright, edgy and deliberate the color works with the cut, makeup and styling to create a look bathed in high fashion modernity. Steal the professional Goldwell color formula in the notes.

Whenever I return to the pixie after a stint of longer looks I encounter an equal mix of admiration and horror. What might surprise you is that these reactions are not divided by gender. For every woman who looks at my crop and wistfully utters, “I wish I could do that,” there’s one who asks why I cut off my hair as if I’d chosen to loose a limb. And, for every man who tells me I looked better “before” there’s one who tells me with a combination of surprise and admiration that I pull off short hair really well. But my experience is contradicted by every article I’ve read on the subject. Women, even those with short hair, seem determined to believe that men don’t like it. What gives? Click the notes for my theories. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
