    first off, I have very thick hair. Most hairdressers etc will tell me it's the thickest hair they have ever seen. It's currently about waist length and i'm really considering cutting into a pixie because i'm bored of it and it is so difficult to wash. I'm also very small (5'3) and so i feel like the amount of hair i have now drowns me. However my mum thinks that it will stick out and "look like a helmet" so TLDR i have extremely thick hair, will a pixie cut work? does anyone have any experience with this?

    it's pretty tame and curled with a curling iron here, it goes a bit frizzy when left to dry naturally

    I don't think you should- my hair was similar to yours but a bit longer and I cut it to shoulder length and I really regret it

    I have really thick and frizzy hair too! I got a pixie cut back in September and honestly it was one of the best decisions I've made. I was worried about it looking like I had an afro, but as long as it's cut into a style it should really be fine.

    It is so much easier to manage and is much less effort. But I'd say that even if you happen to not like it, remember that hair grows back! It'll probably grow back a lot healthier too, and at a quicker speed than you'd expect!

    I'd say absolutely go for it if that's what you want

    can I ask what made you regret it? Was is the way it looked or just that you missed having long hair

    Well everyone noticed and commented a lot and it felt like I lost part of myself as my hair was like my signature feature that people noticed. Also I couldn't do anything with my hair anymore
    It made me feel less unique lol
    I know I don't have spectacular reasons

    However your planned cut might work because it will be striking in another way

    On a different note could I ask what hair products you use? Your hair is in such a good condition! Do you have it in protective styles? Thank you

    Hi. You have beautiful hair. If you feel it drowns you, then don't have it waist length. However this doesn't mean you have to go pixie cut short either.

    I would only go for a short haircut if you have delicate facial features and good bone structure, otherwise you will end up looking butch and chubby. For instance, Emma Watson is one of the few females who pulls of short hair well because she has a a nice jaw, high cheekbones and a slender nose.

    It freaks me out when people go from long hair to a pixie cut. Makes me scared it could hapen to me.
