Remembering Audrey Hepburn Pixie Cut Hairstyle In Roman Holiday

At present time, movie is an effective medium for fashion. When Angelina Jolie's role as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, not just its fictional character that presented as a beautiful, intelligent, and athletic archaeologist-adventurer who became famous throughout the world. But it is also Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft french braid hairstyle. Likewise Demi Moore's short haircut in Ghost. Which of course, also influence on Demi Moore and Angelina Jolie's facial beauty.

Apparently, the same case also happened to Audrey Hepburn, when She played as Princess Ann (Anya Smith) in Roman Holiday, a romantic comedy movie in 1953. Audrey Hepburn's classic beautiful face that already has a lot of cute features both physically and in expression (such as, Audrey Hepburn's lip shape and eye glance), is looked more beautiful and truly cute with Pixie Cut, a short layered women's hairstyle with a shaggy fringe. It's become one of the charms of Audrey Hepburn's beautiful face, which is still remembered by the world until today.

And about movie, the difference is, perhaps, hairstyle fashion for a movie in 1953 is not schemed as an important part to the success of the movie, which is designed much earlier. It's quite contrast with Tomb Raider (or today's modern films).

A pixie cut refers to a short woman's hairstyle generally short on the back and sides of the head and slightly longer on the top. Women began exploring shorter hairstyles in the 1920s and was widely popular by rebelling women known as flappers. In the past year the pixie cut has been brought back into the spotlight, being worn by world famous stars and models such as Alyssa Milano, Keira Knightley, Rihanna, Katie Holmes, Agyness Deyn, Pixie Geldof, Elisha Cuthbert, Victoria Beckham, Ashley Greene, Lauren Holly, Nena, and others.

Pixie cuts work best on women with thin straight hair. Fine features, such as high cheekbones and large eyes, are accentuated with this hairstyle. Depending on the style, pixies range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches long in others. Pixies are very easy to care for and can be worn casually, or dressed up for special occasions. (Source: Wikipedia's pixie cut).
