No weekly trims!

I don't think I'll ever be brave enough to try a pixie cut. Just the thought of seeing a pile of my chopped hair on the floor of a salon already terrifies me. I also see it as a high-maintenance 'do because of the salon trips I may have to do at least thrice a week to keep its shape and style. I'm worried that I would need tons of styling products to tame baby hairs and cowlicks, too.

Which brings me to Maricar Reyes-Poon: She's one of the ladies who dared to go short after many years of sporting long locks. She seems to be loving it, too, as I noticed she's been wearing the same 'do for almost two years. What could be her secret?

According to her hairstylist, Alex Carbonell, it's all in the way Maricar's hair was cut. The length in the front only requires blast-drying, and the super short razored back won't need trims until after a month.


Here's how her hair looks sans a glam team:

Conclusion: When trimmed the right way, pixie cuts can be filed under the wash-and-wear category.
