Short hair is having its great comeback in fashion. And I'm not talking about somewhere-around-the-shoulder length. I mean-the pixie cut. Evidently everybody's doing it - latest being Anne Hathaway for her role of Fantine in Les Miserables.

Started some time ago when sweet little Audrey cut her thick raven locks and scored an Oscar for her role in Roman holiday, showing off her delicate features and a swanlike neck.

 Continued with Jean Seberg, queen of the nouvelle vague cinema, when she cut her hair for the epic role of Joan of Arc in 1957's Saint Joan.

Sixties also had Twiggy, Edie Sedgwick and Mia Farrow, all cut extremely short.

The 70s were fans of super long hippy hair, but the late 80s, the era of the supermodels with Linda, Christy and later even Kate brought the pixie cut on the scene again! Followed by Winona Ryder, Gwyneth (who at the time sported the same haircut as her bf Brad Pitt ), Chloe Sevigny, etc.

2000s have brought us Agyness Deyn, Michelle Williams, Emma Watson and above mentioned Anne.

So what's the deal with the short hair?
Well, for starters, suddenly cutting your super long hair short ( even if I'd never be brave enough to do a pixie cut myself ) is the best feeling in the world. Fact.
I am of the opinion that everybody should let themselves be a bit crazy sometimes and just cut. Enter springtime with a new sense of freedom-literally.

Enjoy you week :)
