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 weave styles 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.

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.*
