There’s nothing better than a striking new ‘do to update your look this winter.
Audrey Hepburn cropped her hair drastically short for the movie Roman Holiday in 1953, and Mia Farrow followed suit in the 60s. Recently a host of stylish models and actresses including Lily Collins, Scarlett Johansson, and most recently Tyra Banks, have sported the super short pixie cut.
‘The main reason I think this style has stuck around from 2014 is because women are becoming more confident with change, and having hair that’s comfortable and easy to maintain,’ says award winning colour expert Kaleb Pritchard. ‘Texture is also really fashionable right now, and the “un-done” look is so in.’
‘The look works best on oval and heart-shaped faces. However, it doesn’t work so well if you have a long shaped face – it can make it appear even longer.’
‘For square shaped faces have the style rounded off around your temples or have a longer sweeping fringe to soften,’ Kaleb says.
‘Highlights and lowlights look great with the textured layers of this type of cut, so have fun with it. Also, having such a structured cut can lose it’s shape quickly, so ensure you get a regular trim every four to five weeks to keep layers balanced,’ says Kaleb.
