Experiment: Growing out a Pixie

Hard things:

Eggs, boiled.
Times, by Dickens.
Growing out a pixie cut.

This is really old news, therefore not really news at all, but about a year and a half ago, I cut off 22 inches of hair. I documented the process with this very high resolution camera I found on my imac.

I've liked my Jean Seberg hair, but now that I know I have the bones to pull it off, I wanted to try other things.  Since I've been growing it out, my wish has been granted! I've had the opportunity to try SO many new things - like -

The Dwight

The Emilio, circa Breakfast Club

The Muppet

The Beatle

The Beatle Muppet

The Emilio, Circa D2

What a roll I'm on and it's only been 6 months! What hairstyle would you like to see me try next?

Weird Al?
Delta Burke?

Just let me know and YOUR wish will be granted!

This is amazing. I never knew short hair was so culturally versatile.

Are you referring to Unforgettable Fire era Bono? With the mullet? Because you'd have to start a receding hairline to manage latter day Bono.

haha oh this is fantastic! I'm sad I'm missing out on this stage of your hair's life, but I will try to stay connected as it transforms. You should try to pull Edward Cullen hair when it gets long enough. I can't stand Twilight, but that is some pretty epic hair...

Cate Blanchett a la Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. That might require amish-man like bangs...and I don't know if you're ready for that.

One word: Scary

Two words: Brian Grazer (though your hair may already be too long for it....)
