Spearheaded most famously by Winona Ryder, the blonde pixie cut is the haircut thousands of brave women got in the ’90s –
and many regretted almost instantly.
It was super short and textured, the kind of drastic haircut you went for when you wanted a major change, like after having your heart broken, getting a new job or having a baby – all terrible times to get a drastic haircut, frankly.
On Winona, Madonna, Gwyneth, Natalie Imbruglia and Sharon Stone it looked cool and effortless. For the rest of us, it didn’t always translate but for a moment there – before understanding how hellish it would be to grow it out – it felt fresh and fun and Very Winona.
