The pixie cut, a revolutionary way to showcase the modern woman’s beauty. The perfect pixie haircut for black women these days looks different than it did in years past.

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 from their counterparts. Throughout most of our history, long hair was considered essential and ladylike.

3. Che Peterson’s Short  Pixie Cut Hairstyle with a Funky Bang

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.
