Victoria and the pixie crop

This has to be one of my favorite haircuts of all time. I first convinced Victoria to go for a pixie crop three months ago and she asked for it again on Friday. The pixie crop was made famous worldwide when (the king) Vidal Sassoon gave it to Mia Farrow in 1967, during the making of (the movie) Rosemary’s baby. It made a huge comeback in the early 90s, when (supermodel) Kristen McMenamy sported it for a Calvin Klein campaign and Madonna decided to have it for her Girlie Show tour (1993). Lots of women followed. I don’t think it ever really left since then. It certainly made headlines last summer when (Harry Potter star) Emma Watson decided to go for it and we’ve also seen celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Michelle Williams wearing it recently. I think it’s one of the most flattering short haircuts a girl could go for, plus a classic that women will continue to choose no matter if it is a big trend or not. But right now it definitely is huge.
