I don’t know about you but it seems like when we finally reach our hair goal, we’re ready for a change. If you’ve been the girl that has been everybody’s “hair goals” because of your long locks, then you may wonder what you’d look like with a short do.

The good news is you don’t have to cut your hair to actually to experience a change! All you have to do is try a protective style: a pixie wig, sew in or quick weave. Once you find the style you’re looking for, then find a professional who can install it for you. For these styles, I recommend using human hair that is good quality, but affordable (since you’ll be cutting it short anyway).

Check out these pixie cut weaves that totally had us fooled!

1. Problem: You have long hair but you’re not ready to cut it. Solution: Try a quick weave or sew in with your hair braided down and the weave is sewn on top.

2. Problem: Your hair is too short to get the style you want.  Solution:  Try a quick weave with your hair molded down.  *Please note, you must use the proper mold, protective caps and solutions to ensure that you don’t damage your natural hair.  This may not a be a great solution for everyone.*

4. Problem: Your hair is too fragile for sew-ins or quick weaves but you want to try something new.  Solution: Get a  custom wig!

5. Problem: Hair loss or balding hair and not enough hair to be sewn down. Solution: Frontal pixie weave.

*Please keep in mind that frontals are a high maintenance hairstyle and may only last up to 1 or 2 weeks installed before you need to have them touched up. Please consult your stylist about this option.*
