Pretty Boy

So, I cut my hair again--after my initial change from long hair to a bob this didn't feel drastic. Although, I am slightly afraid of looking like a boy from behind and I wore one of my most feminine dresses on the day of my haircut to balance it out. I've been trying to wear more pants this fall, but I might start wearing them more infrequently than ever now! These pictures were literally snapped a few minutes after my cut, so I still have to wash it and style it on my own to see what it will really look like. Anyway, here I am with the new cut; I really like it and I do hope it means even less work in the morning, although I'll probably start having to wear more scarves to keep my neck warm!

oh my gosh that is adorable. I usually like longer cuts more but this suits you so much x

Panni said...

Oh, you look so petite on the last photo. And your hair is gorgeous. I liked the previous style too, but this is great. I'd like to cut my hair this short sometime.

Eli said...

This is so beautiful! It's the most drastic of them all! It looks fantastic on you :) How do you feel about having so many different haircuts in a years time? (I think that's awesome and brave!)

Arielle said...

You totally pull it off though. You definitely do not look boyish. Super cute! :)

Eeeee! This makes me miss my pixie cut (had that 3 years ago). One thing I can say is that I discovered it was WAAAY less fluffy after washing if I let it airdry instead of blowdrying. My favorite product for "finishing" and adding texture is No. 4 Glossy Modeling Putty for Wizards by Davines. It didn't build up in my hair (I don't wash everyday). Have fun with the new cut!

Preziosa said...

You are adorable. So nice and lovely. I always loved log long long hair, but you look great with this new hair cut! It brings out your eyes!
The dress is gorgeous as the bag!

Love

So stunning! Love the new hair, it's absolutely beautiful (and not a style that just anyone can pull off!)

You look so beautiful with your haircut. I always wanted to get a pixie cut but my husband and dad would kill me.
The vintage dress looks amazing on you and your new cut.

Your hair looks amazing. While it might play as "boyish" from the back, I definitely think it looks grown up and sophisticated - and feminine.

Grace B. said...

I love it! It suits you extremely well.

Kitsune-kun said...

CUTEST haircut ever! it looks amazing! so so so cute. I've been wanting to cut my hair like this forever, but I know I'll never pull it off....my nose is too big, and I'll probably never do it. you look so super ciyte with it though!

Elis said...

It looks so beautiful! I'm envious that any length of hair suits you so well! I'm growing my hair out; it's the longest it has been in five years.

Joanna said...

Love the cut. It looks very pretty on you and it really makes your face stand out. I especially love the aura of Mia Farrow in the style and the shape. It's not exactly like that, but your features with the cut bring that to mind.

Rebecca - I love the cut! I think it looks very retro and charming... just like you!

You were made for this haircut! I loved the bob, but I ADORE the pixie cut! And your dress is uber cute as well!

Ana from Sweet Serendipity said...

You look absolutely gorgeous. It's refreshing to see a woman who isn't afraid of short hair.

Have fun experimenting with your new length!

P' said...

Oh you're so cute!!
It look like every haircut fits you! This one is perfect, and this is the best cut to wear beautiful headbands, it can give a really feminine and retro style. I had short hair like this long time ago ^^
I love it!!

Bargain Bex said...

i'm in love with the cut. seriously. but i may be bias since this is coming from someone who just chopped their hair back into a pixie cut too ... ;)

Daisy said...

Oh wow, you look stunning....you really do !

Wendy said...

Oh my goodness! Your hair is ADORABLE! I love it! It looks wonderful on you. ♥♥♥

hannah, heart city said...

Elizabeth Benfield said...

i. love. it.

WendyB said...

Very cute!

Liloe said...

So cute ! :-)

Mallory | The Storm in a Teacup said...

Ahh! You're so brave!! I would be TERRIFIED to do that. And especially when your hair was sooo long just little bit ago.
It looks really good though - reminds me a little of Carey Mulligan.

Angel said...

You looks so cute!

Andrea Lynne Rose said...

I think it looks amazing! I too was afraid when I chopped off all my locks of being mistaken for a boy. Everyone ended up loving it and there was only one incident where some old asian lady thought I was a boy until I turned around.

Dare to be different!

thedemuremuse.com said...

I LOVE the new 'do! The bangs frame your face so well and you do not look like a little boy at all. I definitely would not have the guts to chop my hair that short.

Meg! said...

You remind me of a character from the anime Escaflowne; I think her name is Hitomi. Which is a compliment. ;) ANYWAY you look so gamine, I love it!

Shelby said...

your so brave! i don't think i could every bring myself to do something that drastic! looks good though!!!

Anonymous said...

really really nice haircut. I challenge you hahaha... why don't you dye it black? with your eyes and your skin colour the contrast would be awesome!

Lauren said...

That cut is so perfect on you! I especially love the third pictures. You look so coquettish. ^-^

Meli said...

I LOVE IT

Miki's scrapbook said...

You look AMAZING!!! Do not fear, you'll never look like a boy with that cute feminine face of yours; and not even from behind, hehe.

I'm on and off with the idea of chopping my hair off again, I think you've helped me pluck up the courage to finally do it, so thanks! ;D

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@Anonymous, haha thanks for the challenge but I decline--I'm not really into drastic color changes & I already worry about looking unintentionally goth. :)

Sweet Harvest Moon said...

You look amazing! Cute and retro :)

Fashion Activism said...

fabulous! the cut, the dress, the photos! girl, you rock!

Lilie972 said...

Vraiment très joli

Kb said...

Love these images, that cut looks amazing on you! I wish I could do something drastic with my hair but feel I've run out of things to do...can't wait to see what effect this might have on your outfits!

Kate said...

This cut looks so classic on you! Love it!

Larissa said...

oh my goodness your hair cut is absolutely darling! I've never been brave enough to go super short, but I do love my bobby style haircuts- and love the outfit as always. I went through a bunch of your videos the other day- love your stop motion ones. you're quite the film artist. :)

Corinne said...

YOU LOOK MARVELOUS REBECCA! Short hair definitely suits you, you are a seriously bonafide pixie! Absolutely love it!
I chopped my hair off in freshman year of college & was so used to long hair I had no idea what to do with myself (too short is so not for me- although it is addicting after a while :)
That last picture looks out of a vintage movie or something. Lovely!
Take care, dear!

Beautiful! Makes me want to go to the hairdresser and have a try at a pixie cut myself, this is exactly what I would like it to look like. Who knows, in a few months or so?

Madeline Quaint said...

Oh, I love your new haircut!

I always read your blog and love it, but hardly ever comment. However, I just had to seeing your haircut! :)

Samantha Manzella said...

Girl, rock the pixie cut! You look stunning! The cut suits you so well. :)

your hair is dazzling! it looks terrific from the back, with your dress, & tattoos.

kater said...

Literally made this face: :O at it! It looks so amazing! Ahh! Bless your adorable face!

Fashion Inciter said...

I think you hair looks great like this! You still look totally feminine to me. I've been thinking about chopping my hair off, it's past my shoulders right now so I'm not sure about doing it. Nice post! Great pictures.

Victoria said...

I love the new hair, I wish I could pull off that sort of cut xx

Anonymous said...

Love your short hair. I cut my hair short 2 weeks ago (from a longer bob haircut) and now I feel I made the right choice. : )

Anonymous said...

I love your hair! I'm a natural redhead, and currently have that same cut. Your pics are tempting me to dye my hair just a little more red :)

emily.mcintyre said...

The haircut looks wonderful!

Alison said...

What a beautiful dress and gorgeous hair. I wish I could pull of a pixie nearly as well as you do and red!

Anonymous said...

wow! What a change! I do hope it's less work! I've had long hair and short hair (I get a pixie cut every few years). And I've always found short hair to be more work. BUT that's because I would always let it grow out again! If you schedule a trim every 6 weeks or so, you should be fine!

ps. you look lovely! very audrey-esqu

Katharina said...

I've been reading your blog for over two years now, Rebecca. Even though it is one of my favs, I have never felt the need to comment so far. However, now I just have to say: W O W ! ! ! You look stunning with your new haircut!
And you probably know, we south-Germans are usually very reserved with compliments ;)

BellaRose said...

Wow it looks absolutely fantastic! I used to have hair this short and I'm dying to cut it like this again. You won't regret it!

GIRL AND CLOSET said...

oh my, your hair is SO stunning!! It suits you beautifully, you look like a modern day Audrey Hepburn. Amazing! xo veronika

ZombieLace said...

CUTE!!! I had a pixie cut a few summers ago, and I loved it but the problem was I got kinda bored with it. I longed for braids and long hair like you had at the time! Congrats on the cut, it looks adorable and I am sure you will rock it pants included.

Rosemary said...

Short hair is simply adorable. I have a similar cut/style. Sometimes I worry a bit about looking too much like a boy but in the end, who cares! Mixing elements of menswear with feminine clothes is quite inspirational!

Lexie, Little Boat said...

oh my gosh! as a former pixie'd girl myself, i LOVE IT!

danica said...

Such a great haircut! Love it! :)

Aubsent From Texas said...

We all need drastic change now and again. It keeps life interesting. The new 'do is adorable on you!

wow you look gorgeous!!! Honestly, it amazes me how all 3 hairstyles you've had this year have somehow managed to suit you perfectly! Love it!

Belle said...

Looks beautiful!
you remind me of amy adams when her hair was short.

Rachel said...

oh my, I literally GASPED when I saw that first photo. In a good way! I love love love pixie cuts although I don't think I could pull it off. But it is perfection on you. Love it!

ftashion said...

Wow! It's drastic but absolutely lovely! Love how it looks cute and at the same time chic! I wanted to grow my bob long, but after looking at your hair I have the urge to keep it short and dye it red!

Ash :o)

Oh my! Your new hair cut looks fantastic! I love it. :)

bellsonherwrist said...

Cute! We must be channelling hair cutting thoughts as I'm thinking about going from quite long to above chin length.

auxpaysdesmerveilles said...

Wow, you look so good with the short hair!

Mila said...

Amazing hairstyle and I love your dress

Dee said...

here I am, taking a break from writing a paper and going through my bloglovin' queue when this post shows up! It looks great!

Paula said...

I think that this cut looks so much better than your previous one!You look really feminine and chic in these photos :)

Calla said...

That is so very lovely on you! You are very well suited for it!

Rebecca
I could never consider close crops boyish whenever I associate them with so many iconic women (Mia Farrow, my mum, Jean Seberg, Emma Watson, you, the list goes on and on!). It looks stunning with that dress, but I'm sure you'll retain your femininity even if you pair it with something edgier. Love!

Bisous, Sarz

candacesue said...

I love, love, love this cut on you!! I've always wished I could pull off a pixie cut, you do it perfectly!

April, Everyday Forgotten said...

Ooh I absolutely adore your new cut! I've been thinking about chopping mine to shoulder length, but I just dont think I could go through with it haha!

DelbaMé said...

I think this is so beautiful, I definitely love this cut. It's flirty and cute!

Jamie Rose said...

Yes! Your hair looks awesome! I always love a good short hair cut. Mine was short for the longest time so I'm just now trying out longer hair for a little bit. I have a feeling I'll be chopping at some point. You look so so cute with your new haircut though. I don't think it's too boyish at all so don't be afraid to wear pants! Girls with short hair are fantastic!

pamella said...

these pictures remind me of Kathy H, a character portrayed by Carey Mulligan in the movie Never Let Me Go. your new hair suits you well!

Sunshine said...

I love it! My friend suggested that I should do the same. I did and it looks smashing! Thank you so much!

RedHead said...

I f***ing LOVE that hair. Welcome to the short red haired sisterhood, you make a CUTE member, very Julia Roberts in Hook. And don't worry - you're far too delicately femininely pretty to ever look like a boy...unlike me :)
