Most women in their 40’s that gave this cut a try will say that it makes them feel younger, more playful, likable, and maybe most importantly – sexy! Other people will say that a pixie cut, especially on a mature woman, makes them look confident and brave.

Although it looks like a very low maintenance haircut, you will need to visit your hair stylist a bit more often. On the other hand, those visits will be shorter, with just a little bit of trimming. To maintain a pixie hair cut, you’ll probably need to visit the saloon every 5-6 weeks. If you find a really good and trustworthy barber to maintain your new hair cut, you will pay significantly less.

Will Pixie Cut Work With My Face Shape

Most pixie styles will look great on women with heart-shaped, oval or square faces. Women with round faces should go for the asymmetrical pixie – the angled structure of the pixie cut will provide structure, frame and visually soften the roundness of the face.

Is Pixie a Good Choice for Fine Hair?

In your 40’s, your hair is probably a bit finer than it used to be. Pixie cut is great for thin hair, and it’s very simple to add volume to it with just a little bit of hair product.

Will the Pixie age me?

Some worry that cutting their hair very short will make them look older. Might be true for some types, but the best thing about short hair is that it grows back very quickly. A short pixie will give you a refreshed look that you can easily maintain. Just imagine all the time you’ll save getting ready in the morning. Get a pixie cut and hit that snooze button! More beauty sleep will definitely help keep those youngish looks!

You can style your pixie cut in multiple ways. You will only need a small amount of hair product to accomplish a major transformation. You’ll notice your hair care products, shampoos and conditioners will last you a lot longer.

Pixie gives you the opportunity to play more with colors. The hair will grow back really fast, so you can be brave with different colors. You also don’t have to worry as much about damaging the hair, but do try not to over – bleach it.
