The Short Pixie Cut: 2018 Summer Hair Trends

Hot Styles For Straight Hair

Summer heat can be unbearable - especially with long hair.

Why not try the Short Pixie Cut?

Pixie History

Like most modern hairstyles, the Pixie Cut had its beginnings in the earlier decades of the 20th century.

It seems it was first seen during the roaring 20s, when women started breaking gender norms.

Back then, women were expected to keep and wear their hair long, but thanks to some brave women who didn’t fear change, the Pixie Cut was born.

And though only a few mainstream artists and dancers wore it between the 20s-40s, it only truly became popular after Audrey Hepburn’s debut film, “Roman Holiday,” in 1953. In the movie, Hepburn’s character got the cut as part of the storyline. Since then, short hairstyles, continued to grow in popularity.

Hepburn popularized the Pixie Cut in her debut film, "Roman Holiday."

And even though long hair is still more common these days, short hairstyles, like the Pixie Cut, are much more accepted and appreciated.

Let’s talk about why we think it’s so great…
