The pixie cut, a revolutionary way to showcase the modern woman’s beauty. The perfect pixie cut these days looks different than it did in years past. Around twenty years ago, a pixie cut was simply a short cut with symmetrical sides and back. Then, the hairstylist might put some layers up top. Now, the cut has evolved so much. Pixies now come in many variations, from the conservative pixie with even sides and layers in the top, to including undercut pixies with shaved sides and even design parts added. It’s important to note that we define the pixie cut as any short cut where the top of the hair is cropped into layers. And the effects might be so it can be styled in such a way as to create a sense of movement.
Times Have Changed
When it comes to haircuts, people need to understand that the pixie changed the game. Think back to the birth of our country. Back then, women would never dream of having short cuts. They were all about the long locks. It was a societal expectation. Women had to have long hair because it was a sign of femininity. It showcased that a woman was truly different than a man. It created a sexual appeal. Also, the cosmetic industry was not in full swing. Without the dresses and long hair, women wouldn’t look that different to their counterparts. Throughout most of our history, long hair was considered essential and ladylike.
It was important to men that women looked different. After all, they were relegated to a separate sphere. Their place was in the home, having children and doing housework. The rich women sometimes got away with just child-rearing. Anyways, the point is that a woman’s long hair was the pinnacle of loveliness, to them. The verse in the Bible about a woman’s hair is her crown of glory probably did not escape many in the Victorian age. Although the verse went on to explain that women should embrace their femininity as a source of beauty, many took it the wrong way. Unfortunately, the beauty of the pixie cut was suppressed then.

Today, the pixie cut is a celebration of women and just how far we have come. That we can be beautiful and successful in the professional and personal sphere.

The cosmetics, jewelry, and clothes of this age are all geared to making women look the best they possibly can while helping them express an individual style.
