Anne Hathaway is currently sporting a pixie crop hairstyle and on the right features it looks gorgeous. Having spent some time studying those women who rock it I’ve come up with a few pointers on the features you need to make it work.
According to John Frieda, hairdresser to the stars, a measurement of 5.5cm or less from the base of the ear to the bottom of the chin is important, this is because it makes you look less jaw heavy (a more ‘masculine’ trait). So in general, shorter face shapes (square and round) find it easier to carry off shorter hair.
What I have noticed about those that really look fabulous with a really short haircut is that they have:
1. Feminine facial features
2. Great cheekbones
3. Either large eyes ore a great smile or more generous lips.
I tried very short hair, but always felt that I needed to wear more makeup to look more feminine. My ear/chin measurement is 7cm and I don’t have great cheekbones or larger lips or eyes, so maybe that’s why it didn’t really work on me.
Have you ever tried really short hair? How did it look on you?
