Trend-setting Victoria may be ushering in the season of the pixie
09 SEPTEMBER 2008
Victoria's new pixie cut is a style classic, with something Audrey Hepburn-ish about it
Victoria Beckham's daring new look is bound to launch a thousand 'copycuts'. With its cute pixie outline and textured finish, the new crop couldn't be further away from the sleek precision of her previous bob.
It's a heavily layered cut achieved by chopping into the hair with the tips of scissors to create masses of texture and shape that just needs ruffling through with wax for the necessary separation. She may dress haute couture but this look is definitely ready to wear.
And because it's short all over, with just the tiniest of fringes, the style exposes the entire face and neck, making it incredibly sexy.
Just like the original urchin cuts of the Sixties, this is a style classic, with something Audrey Hepburn-ish about it. And the new colour is the icing on the cake, adding depth and definition to her face to make her bone structure and eyes stand out even more.
We're guessing Mrs Beckham's decision to 'launch' her new look at the beginning of New York Fashion Week wasn't accidental, because we can see this becoming a style winner as the autumn/winter season gets underway.
