Pixies at the OSCARS...To Cut or Not to Cut?

I LOVE Julie Andrews!  She is totally one of my girl crushes!  And I have always thought she is just  the most completely exquisite human being with a tremendous sense of humor which makes her more endearing.  

But I have always loved her hair!  I can never imagine her hair any other way!  And, of course, she is aging so gracefully!  

And how great is this picture - so trendy even way back then?  And with with the pixie cut being so tres' chic, I am getting the urge to cut my hair.  

So watching the Academy Awards, I really noticed a great deal more short pixie haircuts on the women than usual.  And I love each one more than the next!  The amazing host, Ellen Degeneres - LOVE her - has always rocked the short cut and she looks gorgeous in it.  Although, back in the 1980s, she also had it quite a bit longer.  I think we have all had some version of this haircut at one point or another.....

The three women I noticed last night were Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron, and Kristin Chenoweth

First off, I love her.  I love that she seems like a normal person and yet she was super stunning at the OSCARS looking totally Hollywood glam.

I love that this cut is SO versatile that it can be worn in a bunch of different ways from casual to classic.

Here it is a little shorter which leads me to believe that she is growing it out now. 

Charlize Theron - is she always perfect?

Every time I see the J'adore commercial,  I am usually sitting on the couch eating something which is less than healthy.  And watching that commercial depresses me so I eat more.  LOL

LOVE Kristin - always the epitome of style and grace.  She really changes her hair up a bit!

I completely love this look on her!  

I remember reading when Anne Hathaway chopped off her hair for Les Mis and she sobbed for days.  (It was REALLY short) but alas, she has kept it and I think it is gorgeous.  Although, I can't help but miss her old hair too - she had such beautiful, long hair.

Such a difference with it short!  WOW!

I also LOVE Jenna Elfman's sun kissed short cut!  ADORABLE!

And I can still wear headbands and barrettes!

I always love Beth's hair on her blog at

And who didn't love Kathleen Kelly's hair in You've Got Mail?  Meg Ryan was once the queen of hair before Jennifer Anniston took over!  Here was my version of her cut in 2000...

This is my hair now - on the longer side but thinning like crazy from my breast cancer medicine.  I used to have such thick and healthy hair and now it just makes me want to cry.

I have had a love / hate relationship with bangs and I can never not have them.  But they have been the bane of my existence.

And then there was the whole blonde period - I still love the Rachel cut.  (Stop laughing).

But actually, really, it is just hair.  When I was in cancer treatment, I lost all my hair and was completely bald which was SO easy.   I would flip on my wig and I never had a bad hair day!  I don't recommend it but at least there was an upside.  I am not sure if I want to cut it off - now that the warmer weather is upon us, it is nice to have to option of a pony tail or messy bun.  But I  know that in the coming weeks, I am going to be tempted to get that sassy, short cut just in time for SPRING!  But for now, as the snow falls outside my window today during this second week of March, I'm good.  :-)
