= recipe for disaster??

I need a good chop. And love short pixie hair crops. But I am overweight and have a very round flabby face. I just don't think I will pull it off. Can I have your opinions and perhaps some photos if anyone has had anything similar?

I'm not sure a round face can pull off a pixie tbh.

What's your hair like right now?

Def. no to a pixie crop.

On first impressions it doesn't sound like your ideal cut. Can you pin your hair up to mimic a pixi cut to see how it looks?

Hi OP, I really strongly feel that ANYONE can pull off short hair, pixie cuts or styles that are supposedly not ideal for fat faces/ overweight bodies/ ordinary imperfect people. I know not everyone agrees, but I know a few people who really, really rock their pixie cuts, who are big. I just don't agree with the 'logic' that it won't flatter. Read the below articles!

Oooh are you me floaty.... I am similarly tempted ..... I saw a girl the other day with the most amazing 50s beatnik style pixie with a fringe but she was all gamine and Alexa Chungy and I'm more Kirsty Allsopp with a fat suit on......

I read in The Daily Mail (narrows eyes) a few weeks ago that if the distance between the bottom of your ear and your chin is under 2 1/4 inches that short hair will suit you. get out your ruler and check.
Instead of pixie why not go for asymmetric cut à la Frankie Sandford? I lufs her do.
