Pixie-lated again

Fab friends! I finally got my hair cut after SIX months!!!! 

Yes, I waited that long. But the good news is I now have a new hairdresser in Victoria; I think he did a pretty good job and feel happy with it. Of course, I'd feel happy with anything at this point! My hair was such a mess. But I got a compliment on the cut from a stranger in the first half hour -- usually a good sign. :) 

Nothing fancy on the clothes front, and nothing new except my (duplicate) white sneakers.

    Great pixie and nice polished look overall - love your scarf!
    Having a right hairdresser for a pixie cut is not the easy task - took me months to find current one. Congrats on a fresh haircut and feeling lighter :) !

    It looks fantastic, Suz! You are so well suited to a pixie cut. And your outfit is classic perfection, scarf-pattern and bag twin. ;-)

  • chewyspaghetti replied 8 months ago

    I think you found a good one!
    I have a hair appointment in a week and a half, and I can't wait!

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 8 months ago

    You look gorgeous, Suz! Super-fab haircut, and the outfit is classic Suz style.

    A beautiful soft silver pixie cut Sus, I really like the longer fringe.

    I'm finally getting a haircut tomorrow so can understand your excitement.

  • JAileen replied 8 months ago

    Great cut!  I got mine cut last week after about the same length of time.  Isn’t it wonderful?

  • Suz replied 8 months ago

    It is SUCH a relief to feel like myself again, yes, so cheers to those of you just going for cuts soon or recently returned from same! 

  • lisa p replied 8 months ago

    Beautiful cut.  Every time I think I love your longer hair, I love the pixie just as much! 

  • Angie replied 8 months ago

    KILLER BEAUTIFUL, from pixie to sneaker :)

    Fab to have found a competent new hairdresser who is close-by! Rejuvenating in all sorts of ways.

  • viva replied 8 months ago

    I had to go back a few posts to see how long it got! I do love how lush your longer hair is, but it won't surprise you to hear that I adore the pixie. Short hair all the way! You look beautiful.

    Love your new cut.

    Congratulations! Great cut and great to have a new stylist in your new community. I also had to find a new stylist after my former one retired, and had to wait awhile, and had trepidations. I was thrilled with my new cut, which was similar but slightly different in a great way.

    Wonderful cut and outfit. The dove grey emphasizes your beautiful hair and the scarf picks up the blue of your eyes too.

  • smittie replied 8 months ago

    So pretty, Suz!
    Glad to hear you are resuming hair cuts!

  • RobinF replied 8 months ago

    Such a relief to get a haircut! You look great!

  • Helena replied 8 months ago

    Beautiful Suz ... as always!! 

  • Suz replied 8 months ago

    Thanks, all! 

    I didn't mind the longer fringe with my longer hair, but the back!! I was hiding that part from you! 

    It gets really heavy and lumpen looking when it is longer -- just not "me." 

  • Karie replied 8 months ago

    Looking beautiful as always!

    Your hair looks amazing! Very pretty, almost makes me want to cut my pixie cut again (it’s been a few years). And I totally had the same scarf :) I just gave it to my aunt because I’ve found I don’t wear scarves enough to collect them, but I just love the print. It looks so pretty with your coloring. 

  • Katerina replied 8 months ago

    Suz, you look gorgeous! This is a perfect pixie for you. The outfit is also amazing - sophisticated and yet looks completely effortless. The scarf is great and suits you so well.

  • Laurie replied 8 months ago

    Fantastic cut. it's truly stressful to find a new stylist - especially for short hair -- so congratulations on sorting out that very important situation! You look wonderful, as always.

  • Jaime replied 8 months ago

    Hmm, I guess it wouldn't make any sense for me to fly to Western Canada to have a corrective pixie cut would it :) ? You look amazing and I'm so glad you found your stylist! 

  • Runcarla replied 8 months ago

    Congratulations on sourcing a good stylist nd getting a great ‘do!  

  • Brooklyn replied 8 months ago

    You look fantastic! Love the scarf too.

  • Cardiff girl replied 8 months ago

    Gorgeous!Its almost worth waiting so long to get a haircut for the feeling of joy when it’s done.

  • Stagiaire Fash replied 8 months ago

    You look great! So refreshed and ahhhh.
    I keep thinking I should get my hair cut off—it’s been 30 years since I had a pixie. I know it would grow back but still, I’m scared.

  • Bijou replied 8 months ago

    Suz you look radiant, what a fabulous cut. Your hairdresser is so very lucky to have you as his client, he did a great job. One thing that Covid has done, is make me appreciate the simple pleasures such as good hair and the ability to have walks and coffee with friends.

  • Sal replied 8 months ago

    Looking fantastic - how great to be able to get this done.  Great outfit too.

  • suntiger replied 8 months ago

    Wow! Love the scarf too!

  • Irina replied 8 months ago

    Looks fab! I’m always in awe of women who can get a short pixie and look gorgeous. You are definitely one of them. Congratulations on finding a new stylist.

  • rachylou replied 8 months ago

    Snap! Looking sharp! :)

  • Jonesy replied 8 months ago

    Wow, it's a gorgeous cut and it suits you beautifully! Worth the wait :). I love your print scarf paired with the striped shirt.

  • Jenni NZ replied 8 months ago

    This looks amazing Suz and you look like yourself again!
    I always feel my best with my pixie quite short, I’ve decided. Like others I love the beautiful scarf with your colouring.

  • DonnaF replied 8 months ago

    Fabulous!!! What a relief that you found a hairdresser to give you great cut on the first time. Never a guarantee.

    My hair has started to behave differently in the last few years, as in new cowlicks and such. So I started combing it over from the other side. It looks a lot different IMHO but I’m probably the only one who notices. And I’ve learned that I run my hands through my hair a lot on the now wrong side.
