This may seem like a lame question, but I love your videos and just thought I would ask:

I watch your videos on short hair whenever I start to wonder if I should grow out my pixie. I'm over six feet tall and I've had a pixie cut for about a year and a half. I'm having issues with my appearance and feeling unattractive and I seem to blame my pixie cut for these feelings, as well as my height. I feel that I'm not feminine enough being tall and having short hair makes me feel even less confident.

Any advice for someone who loves her short hair but feels like she'll never find a guy?

I've been there (feeling like I would never find a guy) but now I am married and looking back on how that felt. I see now that I was looking for the wrong kind of person by trying to change myself to attract them. I found that once I found confidence in myself and stopped trying to be whoever I thought they wanted, plenty of people were interested. And the best part is that they were actually interested in ME, just the way I am.

If your hair doesn't make you feel good, you don't have to keep it that way. I'm sure there's a hairstyle or color somewhere out there that will make you feel exactly the way you want to feel, so maybe you have to do some experimenting to find it.

P.S. My first three or four pixie cuts were not really that good. When I found my current stylist, he fixed it and now I love it every time.
