Do guys find girls with pixie cuts boyish and unattractive?

I used to have long hair that reached passed my belly button, but last year I was feeling fed up and ended up chopping it all off on a whim. My friends and family were all really nice about it, but I feel like it makes me stand out and look like a human toothpick. But mostly it makes me feel really manish and awkward and exposed.

I have some guy friends who said that they prefer me with a pixie cut, but they're my friends so they have to say that. Also, they tease me about looking like a guy from behind, which actually really resonates with me because when I was a kid and had a bowl cut, I was constantly mistaken for a boy by my teachers and peers.

It obviously depends on the guy, and whether it suits the girl.

But in general I'd say they look good.

Yes, to me they are. I dont like short hair on any girl. They don't look like feminine to me at all. But, there are guys who don't mind about a girl's hair.

Some do. In fact, I got more attention from guys when my hair was really short. It doesn't automatically look boyish, but if it does that can look cute, too.
You can't/won't please every guy, so do what you like with your hair.

I wish I could get away with a pixie cut. I think it's cute on girls.

Short hair makes girls look edgy and different;)

I love pixie cuts. I wish I had the hair to pull it off, unfortunately it just wouldn't work with mine (but I don't have the bone structure for it anyway). Love it, though. And a lot of guys have a thing for pixie cuts, too, cause they're adorable.

It does depend on the girl, obviously, but for the most part I find them really attractive. Something about short hair on girls just works for my eyes. And no, it doesn't have anything to do with looking like a dude - if you can pull off a pixie cut, I find it very feminine.

No, they don't. They could say "I like both, but I think I still prefer the long hair", or something equally considerate, if they thought you should grow it back out.

Ps. I used to have a pixie cut and I got a lot of compliments from guys. I don't think you should worry :>

Thanks for that. I guess so?
Ps. How long did it take for you to grow it out? I've been trying to for a little over three months, and the awkward growing out stage is killing me.

I don't remember(I've done it twice), haha, but it's definitely a b~itch. Invest in going to a good hairdresser who can cut your hair in a shape that will grow nicely into a variation of a bob, for example. How long are your bangs?

Haha yeah. Good advice. My bangs are just sideswept bangs, but if I brush it forward it reaches a little passed my nose?
Aha. Well, it's hard to give advice because I don't know your style, but layers can make a huge difference(and will keep it from looking like a mushroom). Good luck!

Thanks! God, I remember my mushroom stage >> I looked like a female Justine Bieber. Or you know, Justin Bieber.

Pixie cuts are always boyish.. but that's my opinion. I don't think really short hair is ever attractive on girls.
