New Hair! Hot Pink & Half Shaved

A few weeks ago I talked myself into cutting my hair into a pixie cut! I just have A LOT of hair and it's ridiculously thick and wavy. I have had it short before but I wanted to go extra short this time. Another reason I want a pixie cut is because I love to color my hair frequently. With the length it takes WAY too long and too much hair dye.

So I grabbed my clippers (or buzzers) and a 4 guard (size of the attachment) and went to town! I wanted to keep the top kinda spiky so I piled it up into a pony tail to cut later and shaved the sides first.

Well after I did the sides I kinda looked at it and liked it! I thought.. Hey I might as well rock this for a day or two before I cut it all off.

I think the real reason I liked it is because it reminded me of Sokka from Avatar: The Last Airbender :D

If I was going to leave the cut alone then I knew I still had a big job ahead to color it. This was after one bleaching and kinda looks like a My Little Pony tail!

Since it was still purple and kinda yellowy I decided to bleach it again so I could have a total change.

I mixed some RAW Fuchsia Fatale with a lot of conditioner and applied it to dry hair. Then I let it sit on my hair for an hour.

After an hour I rinsed it with COLD water and let it air dry since it'd been through a lot! This is what it looks like down .. it's like you can't even tell I shaved half of it off!

And here is what it looks like straight.

Most of the time I wear it up in a pony tail .. Like Sokka! :D

It's already grown out a bit now.. So one of these days soon I will be coloring it again. I know I will eventually cut it into a short pixie, but for now this is fun and different.


Have you ever shaved part of your hair before?


  1. Pardon the all caps but I LOVE IT!!!!! The cut and color are PERFECT!!! I was totally thinking about doing this as soon as my hair grew out just a bit more. I love having the sides shaved! It's perfect for summer and it's a nice little surprise when people notice. So beautiful!!!

  2. Love the new hair!!! c:
    You look stunning.


  3. It looks sososo good on you! DAMN. *__* And not just because I really love Sokka. :D haha


  4. I am so in love with your hair!!
    and I know exactly how you felt before making your choice, I took the other road and went short but seeing you amazing locks is making me full of regret :O


  5. I'm so amazed at the thickness of your hair. I don't have much to spare!! It's a super fun style!

  6. It looks great! I've thought about doing this ever since I saw Anya's hair like this on Project Runway, hahah. My hair grows slow, so I haven't got enough courage to go for it yet. I've had a pixie cut before, though! It feels so light and easy. I never use hair products to style my hair so getting ready in the morning was so quick!

  7. When I was 20 years younger, I wanted to do this. Not necessarily the color, but definitely the shave job. My hair was about that long and wouldn't grow out on the sides, but I never had the nerve to do it. Very nice!

  8. I've been seriously admiring your hair on instagram since you went through with this! Like, I'm IN LOVE. And it's in such good shape for having been bleached a bunch of times-- I'm jealous!!! I bleached mine recently and it became seriously damaged! Y'ouch!

  9. You really rock that style, and I love it. It suits you so well! ^__^


  10. Super pretty! Yea you can barely tell its shaved when its down. I liked the multi hair style before to. Kinda reminds of a mullet... Dunno why. But the pink is lovely!

  11. I've thought about it but have no idea if I can pull it off or not! I love it on you!

  12. I love the colour and cut. If you can't tell I LOVE pink hair. I had a 1/2 shaved head for ages. I miss it.

  13. This hair suits you so much!! Not many people can pull of this style but you look great :3

  14. Looks fantastic! And you're so blessed to have thick hair! I wish I did, cause I would LOVE to shave the sides and be able to go incognito with the length.

  15. Eep your hair is so neat, I've been thinking I'd love to do the shaved sides but I get stuck in this short hair trap, well you can have short hair and shaved sides but I think it looks especially cool the length you have it at now. Love the pink too and you will also definitely look killer with the pixie chop as well :)
