The Pixie Reveal

Just got back from my hairstylist and wanted to show you the new "do". It's short, sleek and exactly what I was hoping for. Apologies for the lack of makeup and strange facial expressions :) . You can see I kept my cranberry piece in.

Just think how much I'll save in shampoo - lol!

    Just heading off to bed - had to pop back in to say thanks for your lovely words :) I love my stylist!

    Annie Lennox? Oh my ... what a compliment!

  • SarahTheWhite replied 5 years ago

    And I just realized what I love most about it. The look on your face is exactly how I feel when my hair is perfectly ME. I have always admired your hair and your style in general, but there is a spark of something special in these photos - that "this is the me that I feel like inside" look. And THAT is priceless...

    You look amazing.  Love your glasses.

  • Inge replied 5 years ago

    Your smile and the twinkle in your eyes say it all, Shannon. The new 'do looks good, and extra fun and stylish with the cranberry (works great with your specs too). It's brilliant when your haircut makes you feel even "more you", isn't it!

  • Karie replied 5 years ago

    Yes, it is all those and even more superlatives.

    Annie Lennox likeness... yes I think so too.

    I took the liberty of putting a picture of you with Annie Lennox .. A picture is worth a 1000 words and then some in this case :)

  • lyn67 replied 5 years ago

    Wow, sharp! I like it! No doubts, it really suits you!:-)

    Oh Shannon, it's FABULOUS on you!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :) 

    Lisa - the streak was a darker cranberry bordering on purple - it's a bit faded now so looks more cranberry.

  • donnat replied 5 years ago

    This is too cute. You will really enjoy it in the heat. Love the hit of cranberry. Years ago I had a similar haircut, but I had blue in the front.

  • MTBGirl replied 5 years ago

    You look amazing in your new do Shannon! Such a great cut for your face and the heat!

  • Nebraskim replied 5 years ago

    Love this. I'm saving your pix to show to my stylist as inspiration.

  • Eliza replied 5 years ago

    Love the hair and your smile in response to it! I envy how fast it must be to wash and wear. Can it be combed and just dry in place? Gorgeous and cranberry stripe adds some fun.

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    Love the new 'do! I especially like the cranberry streak.

  • Linda replied 5 years ago

    In one word, "Fabulous"!!!

  • texstyle replied 5 years ago

    Looks great - and I can see it feels great too, which I love!

  • viva replied 5 years ago

    Love it -- and I love what SarahtheWhite had to say. I know that look, and that feeling, when a cut feels exactly ME. You look like you feel GREAT.

  • Kathleen replied 5 years ago

    I really love that cut on you.

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    Definite Annie Lennox resemblance, Shannon.  The short cut is executed beautifully, and the bit of color thrown in gives it an edgy, playful femininity.  Score!

  • chouette22 replied 5 years ago

    Wow, I love this cut on you. So fresh. And I agree with all the comments about your very satisfied and sparkly facial expression. You have such spunk!

  • Laurinda replied 5 years ago

    Wow! Fabulous look!!!

  • anchie replied 5 years ago

    I like it so much. I had similar cut about 3 years ago when I was growing out my natural gray color. I still remember how upset my hairdresser was when I asked her to cut it that short, to cut all of my colored hair. I came in saloon with shoulder length hair. She asked me at least 3 times if I am sure. And than she asked me to promise that I will not be upset with her afterwards. Imagine that. And I was not very convinced about this in the first place. But I received so many compliments afterward, I could not believe it. And it was so easy to style, just wash and go every morning. I did not even use dryer, just dried it with the towel. But it required often trims and eventually I grow it back to shoulder length again. But you are my inspiration. Now I want to cut it that short again. Hm..

  • approprio replied 5 years ago

    Take a bow.


  • Susie replied 5 years ago

    Wow, Shannon, you look great! Short hair really suits you. And I think your smile shows that you think so too :)

  • Vicki replied 5 years ago

    Fantastic cut by your stylist and it looks great on you, Shannon. Crantastic color, too!

  • Lyn D. replied 5 years ago
