New Stroup Pixie

HOTB reader Amy recently cut about six inches off her hair to achieve a cut similar to the new Stroup Pixie. Amy sent me this link to Jessica’s new cut at he Vanessa Bruno Grand Opening Party in Los Angeles. As always, Jessica Stroup looks super cute, but I would have lessened the volume at the crown.

I like it better a little more slicked back, like here. Or actually, something in-between the two would be perfect! Of the new cut, Jessica’s stylist is Jen Atkin says: “This cut works best on a round or oval face, and when it’s really roughed-up and piecey. Our inspiration was Carey Mulligan on the cover of Vogue a few months back.” Jen adds, “A dab of texturizing putty is key.” (Amy says she uses spray gloss to get her new short hair to act right.) Jen’s final pixie tip: “Be sure your stylist gets out a lot of the weight of your hair so that the shape of your cut can really show through,” she says.

Do you like this choppy, textured pixie on Jessica Stroup? Would you go this short?
