The Dramatic Haircut You'll Start Seeing a Lot More of These Next Few Months

Cliché dictates that pixie cuts [1] are reserved for the Zoë Kravitzes and Cara Delevingnes [2] of the world, or people with jawlines that look like they've been sculpted by Michelangelo himself, but anyone who's tried the haircut trend [3] knows how baseless that line of thinking can be. In truth, pulling off a pixie comes down to two things: confidence, and the capacity for a major hair change.

And change, it seems, is exactly what people are looking for post stay-at-home orders. "Something about the pandemic fueled us to chop our hair [4] for a different look and sense of change," Michael Dueñas [5], celebrity hairstylist and cofounder of Support Creatives [6], so eloquently told POPSUGAR. That's why, now that salons are reopening across the country [7], pros are predicting you'll see a rise in pixie cuts and shorter hairstyles [8] popping up on your feed in the coming months.

"Post-quarantine, I see women doing something drastic that they haven't tried before but have always wanted to."

"Post-quarantine, I see women doing something drastic that they haven't tried before but have always wanted to — taking a risk and letting themselves welcome new beginnings," said celebrity hairstylist and Unite [9] hair ambassador Graham Nation [10]. This style lets you be bold without buzzing it all off. Plus, he adds, it's easy to manage: "The pixie cut is totally chic and no fuss when it comes to styling. While wet, apply a detangling spray and rough dry into place. Once dry, add a small amount of pomade for a light hold that will last all day."

If you're looking to try out the trend [11] yourself, you'll find plenty of pixie inspiration ideas ahead. No modeling contract (or Italian artist connections) required.
