If your laidback topknot is starting to weigh you down, you’re probably flirting with the idea of a new, dramatic haircut. Indeed, there’s no better time to take the scissors to your strands than the summer.
Those considering a chic pixie cut can look to Kuwaiti fashion blogger Dana Tuwairish. Whether her raven hair is slicked back or swept to one side, the 19-year-old’s striking features are always on show. Meanwhile, Polish model Anja Rubik has us toying with the idea of the chop thanks to the unfussy, chin-length bob she recently debuted on Instagram.
If the tedious, growing-back process is preventing you from embracing a fearless cut, look to Lily Collins for inspiration. The actress dyed her brunette, pixie style a poppy red color, before letting it blossom into a luscious, angled bob—proving that a boyish cut only gets better with time.
Meanwhile, Emirati fashion influencer Nadya Hasan continues to display the versatile abilities of an above-the-shoulder cut by way of varying hairstyles, including low chignons, raked back ponytails, and playful waves.
If you’re still not brave enough to part with your tresses, take a beauty cue from the new face of Lancôme, Taylor Hill. Make like the model and play with a clever hairpiece before you break up with your lengths.
