Wish They'd Cut It Short 2


                                     Hey I just wanted a trim and this is crazy...

                                      But here's some clippers.. buzz me baby


Welcome Back to The Pixie Revolution,

It's been a while since we last had the feature "Wish They'd Cut It Short"

In our very first edition we featured actress Kaley Cuoco of the tv show Big Bang Theory.

This edition I plan on spicing things up a bit by not only featuring one candidate for Wish They'd Cut It Short but three.
All three canidates all have very long brunette hair. And I can honestly say I dont think
I've seen any of them with short hair.
So let's get right to it...

Canidate #1: Carly Rae Jepsen

You might know Carly for her smash hit song of the summer "Call Me Maybe"
I've probably have heard the song 5 times a day since June. Not to mention seeing the video
countless times.
Carly Rae is not an overnight sensation, at 26 years old Carly has appeared on Canadian Idol and other contest shows.
After watching the video and the pure cheesiness of it a dozen times, the first thing I  noticed about Carly is her beautiful eyes. Carly is definetly a looker. She has a very pretty face and striking blue eyes.
Here's the problem, her smokin facial features and striking blue eyes are covered behind sheep dog bangs
and long wavy hair surrounding her face.
She does have nice hair, but I cant help but wonder what she would look like with a shorter cut.
Especially anything that shows her eyes off more.

I found one pic on the internet that in particular reminded me of Carly.
While it's only a side cut and maintains most of the length I think she would look awesome with it.
Here's some pics for comparison:

To go shorter and loose most of the length I could see Carly with a short brunette pixie

Canidate #2: Danica McKellar

You might know Danica McKeller as Winne Cooper from the 1980's tv show The Wonder Years

If you grew up in the 80's and remember The Wonder Years you will remember Danica grew before our eyes and also you'll remember she was the long haired crush of Fred Savage's character.
Danica has gone on to posing in some prerry perrocative shots for the likes of Maxim an other magazines, but even more interesting Danica has written several math help books for kids.

Danica through out her career has never had short hair. She seems like a long haired lifer.
Which is fine. She has very nice long hair. Doesnt stop me from thinking though what she would look like with short hair though.
What inspired me to feature her though in Wish They'd Cut It Short is a picture I stumbled upon that made me do a double take. At first I actually thought it was Danica with a short blonde pixie.
I even had to do a google search for Danica with short hair, which came up blank. Which means either the pic I found is a photoshop of her face on someone with a blonde pixie or there's a woman out there who is a dead ringer for Danica but instead of very long brunette hair has a short blonde pixie.
Either way, this cut is great looking. We'll probably never see Danica with short hair, but this is just as good.
Here's some pics for comparison

Canidate #3: Kourtney Kardashian

Love them or hate them there is no denying The Kardashian's are everywhere.
From their reality tv show, Reality show spin offs and appearing everywhere a TMZ camera seems to be.
All the Kardashian sisters are known for their very long dark hair. What many people forget though is their mom has short hair.
Here's hoping one day one of the Kardashian sister's decides to follow in their mom's footsteps and go for a short crop.
Out of all the sisters for some reason I think Kourtney would look best with short hair. She has the dark hair too pull off a great pixie. In my opinion she is the prettiest of the Kardashian sisters, but again that is just my opinion. She also has enough of an exotic look to pull off some very daring short cuts probably.
I'm not really a fan of an all over buzzcut. Just side buzzed and back/nape buzz thank you, but Kourtney could seriously pull off an Amber Rose and look stunning with an all over buzz cut.
She has the skin tone and exotic look to actually look incredible with a buzzcut.
Here's some pics for comparison:

 Below: Kourtney Kardashian:

More styles I could see Kourtney with:


I could see Kourtney with Ginnifer Goodwin's cut:


Well What do you all think? Do you think one canidate deserves the Wish They'd Cut It Short
More then the others?
Which cuts do you think Carly, Danica and Kourtney would look best with?

Short Haired Babe Of The Week Aug 27th

                                                                My Screen Name Alias: MacGuyver
                                                        No we arent featuring guys hair on this blog now
                                    So what kind of clue is this for who is Short Haired Babe Of The Week?
                                                                         Keep Reading Below


Welcome Back To The Pixie Revolution,

The past few weeks in the hair enthusaist world has been a wild one to say the least.
Two weeks ago as I was preparing to make Jenna Elfman SHBOW. I had to change everything at the last minute when I saw Miley Cyrus has gotten her hair cut into a bleached blonde pixie.
Last week we finally featured Jenna Elfman.
It seemed things were calming down a bit.  Around last monday I started thinking who I would feature this coming week. I had so many still that I want to feature. Would it be Pink? Ginnifer Goodwin?

A few weeks ago right after Miley Cyrus cut her hair, I was on a pixie high. I showed Mrs Mac Miley's pics, which she loved, but then I started doing what I do too many times, start bomarding Mrs Mac with not only Miley pics and then tons of pics of pixies with buzzed sides.
As you know aabout 2 weeks ago I posted Mrs Mac's Appointment date, Mrs Mac was open to the idea of an undercut or buzzed side, but didnt want to jeapordize the Pink cut she got on July 5th.
She was worried about the nike swoosh and shelf line she had on the sides in March.

So Miley mania week actually hurt my chances of seeing Mrs Mac with a buzzed side or undercut by me showing her too many pics and harping on and asking if she was going to get it sidebuzzed.

So I backed off and gave her her hair space.
And something funny happened.
About a week after that, late into last weekend Mrs Mac started looking up pics herself of sidebuzzed pixies. Mrs Mac also added a few facebook pages on pixie cuts and side buzz cuts, made a few hair enthusaist friends.  Wound up having a women on her friends list who had a sidebuzz and has inspired Mrs Mac.
So all seemed to be coming together for the possiblity of  Mrs Mac trying a sidebuzz and or undercut.

I figured I'll just let her do her thing, find pics on her own. I wont push the issue and hopefully Sept 6th when Mrs Mac was to go for her appointment I'd be pleasantly surprised.

 I had known for a while that Mrs Mac had made and appointment for our kids for back to school trims with Mrs Mac's stylist on Thursday.
Around last Wed. Mrs Mac started telling me she didnt want to wait till Sept 6th to get her haircut. She thought it was getting shaggy and getting too long on the sides. She still thought the top and the front bangs looked awesome which we both agreed. But she wanted the back rebuzzed as it had grown in pretty quick and was last buzzed July 5th.
So I told her it was up to her. I didnt feel she needed a trim just yet and could wait till 2 more weeks to Sept 6th
She was on the fence. Thursday came and Mrs Mac decided to call her stylist around lunchtime to see if she could be fit in after the kids haircuts.

The appointment wasnt till 8pm which is late.  The stylist told Mrs Mac that she had been in the salon since 8am, and didnt know how tired she'd be to fit her in that night and that she'd see how she was holding up by the time Mrs Mac got there with the kids at 8pm.
She also said that as long as it was a trim and not something intricate or that required alot of skill she thought she'd be up for it.

I talked to Mrs Mac while she was working that afternoon and Mrs Mac told me all this. The first thing I told her was maybe she should wait for 2 more weeks if our stylist is tired. I didnt want her hair to get messed up. Mrs Mac them informed me that she printed out pics to bring in case her stylist could fit her in. I then asked why would she need to print out pics in work to bring if she already had the Pink pics we used last time plus she planned on bringing the actual pics of her hair that we took ( featured here July cut)
Mrs Mac replied
"You'll see".
That's when I knew she was up to something.
8:30 rolled around and I had just gotten done work. Called Mrs Mac who informed me the kids were almost finished and that Her stylist was feeling pretty good and got a second wind and was up to cut Mrs Mac's hair.

I drove over to the salon like a bat out of hell. Which is about a 10 minute drive from where we live.

When I got there Mrs Mac was still sitting in the waiting area and the kids were just getting finished. Mrs Mac went over to the counter and pulled out papers of photos' she had printed out and asked me to look at them and see what I thought. Most of them were of her July Cut pics, then  2 pages in I start to see sidebuzzed pixies.
I began to get excited and asked if she was going for it, and she said yes.
Flash forward  a couple of minutes later and Mrs Mac was in the chair and showing her stylist, the pics and telling her exactly how she wanted it. No shelf line of swoosh, just undercut buzzed, then cut the same as her last cut on top and the crown.
The Stylist studied the pics for about 30 seconds went over it again with Mrs Mac and we were off.
No one else was in the salon other then our family. So I planted a seat in the chair one over from Mrs Mac. The kids were kept busy in the lobby playing.

Mrs Mac's stylist didnt wash her hair yet. Just wet it down a little, Then proceeded to lift up and pin all of Mrs Mac's hair on top. She then asked me to come over and inspect to see if I thought it was pinned up high enough on the sides and if it went around perfectly. It then dawned on me that Mrs Mac had instructed her to buzzed off both sides.
My heart began to race. I sat back down and watched.
First thing the stylist did was attach a number #4 and asked Mrs Mac if she remembered what they use last time. I knew it was a #3 and a #2 at the bottom of the nape as a taper.. I played aloof and didnt answer. The stylist said they'd try a #4 first. With that she turned the clippers on and ran it up the middle of Mrs Mac's nape. She looked and showed Mrs Mac with a mirror and they both agreed a #3 would be better. The Stylist changed the attachment and put on the blue 3# and then started buzzing. This time as she put them on Mrs Mac nape and pushed up, almost 2 inches maybe an inch and a half of grown out light brown hair begain to hit the floor.

Mrs Mac's hair was pinned up to almost her crown and with that her stylist buzzed all the way up.
She then went to the far left side which i couldnt see and buzzed off the sides. I wanted to get up so bad to see it but just decided to play it cool. The stylist came around and almost as knowing I'm into it, moved just enough in front of me so I could see her buzz the right side of Mrs. Mac's head.
Mrs Mac had the sidebuzz in March, but this time for some reason thought it was ticklish when the clipper went up and around her ears. and actually laughed.
Which made me laugh.

Within a few minutes the most dramatic part of the cut was over. The stylist unpinned Mrs Mac's hair, and combed it to take a look at it, and I then saw the pure aweseomness of her all around undercut.
Next thing was the stylist then ushered over Mrs Mac to get it washed before the cut.

During that time I tried to snag Mrs Mac's phone so i could take a pic of all the hair that was buzzed from the back and side's of Mrs Mac's hair that was now laying on the salon floor.
My daughter actually tried to help me figure out how the camera on the phone worked. but by the time we were fumbling with it, Mrs Mac and the stylist were back and we raced to get the phone back on the counter under the mirror.
It was a pretty comical moment actually.
I know Mrs Mac would had been more then cool with me taking pics, but I didnt want the stylist to know of my hair interest or that i'm crazy enough to want to take pics.

The sylist then used a razor for some reason and razor cut Mrs Mac's hair.
She told the stylist she didnt want the bangs much shorter, just trimmed and sideswept.
She also for some reason though razor cut the top and texturized it. Later Mrs Mac and me agreed she should had told her not to touch the top, as it is a little too short on top and Mrs Mac wants it to be more long on top and sweeping and not as piecey razor cut as it turned out.
Once the stylist was done razor cutting she took out the clippers one more time and then put a #2 attachment on and buzzed the lowest part of the nape to give it a taper from the #3 up higher and on the sides.

The good thing is it will grow on top.
The bad new as the top grows to how we both want it in a month, the buzzed sides and back will also have grown.

Mrs Mac now has an early October trim set.
One of 2 things will happen.
Mrs Mac will go back for the Oct trim and ask for the top and bangs to not be touched at all and only go in for the undercut sides and back to be rebuzzed. Which will be awesome. The top length will have grown and getting it rebuzzed to a #3 with longer strands on top is going to look incredible
This cut is now by far my favorite.
The other option is and I put it on the table, is I could in early Oct pin her hair up and use our home Wahl clippers and buzz it to a #3 on the sides and back.
I have never gotten to do this ever!
Not even the buzzed nape.
I'm pretty confident I can do it and not mess it up because I would just be following to where the long hair starts and the buzz part ends. As long as we didnt wait to long and it became hard for me to see the buzzed hair from the long hair i am confident on my ability to do it.

We'll see and I guess that's what we look forward to in our next hair adventure.

So your all probably thinking. You clicked on this post to see who is Short Haired Babe Of The Week.
Well here she is.
This weeks' Short Haired Babe Of The Week is none other then Mrs Mac herself.

Take that Miley Cyrus!

Below: We took these pics earlier tonight. Sorry there arent alot of pics or as much as last time. We are both tired. Back to School for the kids tommorow and a long weekend.  I asked Mrs Mac to lift her hair up so you can all see the undercut and how incredible it looks! She also had just gotten a shower so the front and back crown area is still a little wet. So it looks darker. When it is dry it looks more blonde and you cant see the undercut on the crown when it's dry.

Mrs Mac went above and beyond any of my wildest dreams on this cut.
Not only is the cut incredible looking, but I cant stop touching it. Both sides buzzed to a back buzz that goes to the crown and feels like felt soft velvet to my fingers.
The pictures really do Mrs Mac no justice. It looks even better in person , not to mention up close and in person the buzzed parts actually are shorter then they look in the pics.  I love how short the buzzed sides and buzzed nape/ crown is! I really hope she keeps it this way for a while.

I am one lucky dude!

Below: Here is one of the reference pics Mrs Mac used for the cut.

Pixie Cut Pics Aug 25th

Welcome Back To The Pixie Revolution,

This week I'm featuring more pixie cuts. Normally I post pics once a week.
But this week has been pretty inspiring.
Mrs Mac has taken up the hobby of looking for pics herself and has been talking to some hair enthusiast on facebook, and has found some really awesome pics of pixie cuts featuring side buzzed looks and undercuts.

Mrs Mac after being inspired by the hair enthusaist world and seeing some pics she really likes has now hinted that she may very well try a sidebuzz look or undercut buzz on her upcoming haircut.
Which as you all know is Sept 6th.
So that's what's new in a nutshell.
Now enjoy some new pics.
They'll be some new post this weekend. And dont forget to check out our weekly Short Haired Babe Of the Week which will be up late Sunday early Monday morning. You might be surprised on who I feature this week. Or as Perfect Cut coined She-Bot-Wa or  SHBOW.
