The start of a new year is the perfect motivator to boldly change up your look. If you've been eyeing pixie cuts for a while but have always been to afraid to take the plunge, let these pixie cuts photos give you the encouragement you need to head to the salon this 2016! With the right stylist, anyone can pull off this super sexy and bold style.
I'll be the first to admit I'm one of those girls that has a million pixie cuts saved on her Pinterest boards, but always chickens on actually cutting off all my hair. Last year I tried to make it happen, but once my hair hit chin length I was like "STOP!" I don't know what I'm so afraid of, but I'm hoping this is the year, I muster up the courage to see it through. If you're in the same boat, know that I'm totally rooting you on to chop it off with me this year.
