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?
