Was there a time when you were told not to get a haircut for looking like a boy? Not anymore! Our society has finally taken an initiative to accept gender nuetrality and gay choices for the people. Many individuals have been coming out as a part of the LGBTQ+ and we are amazed. People have finally had the opportunity to live and express themselves freely.
Haircuts and clothing have been a major way to differentiate the gender in our common day society for ages. But things seem to have been taking a turn now. Every individual is free to wear anything and everything they like. Be it skirts, dresses, tops, pants, shirts and what not, there is no differentiating now.
We have been seeing the same change with haircuts also. People have been getting their hair cut in styles like long, short, bangs and what not. Here are some gender neutral haircuts you can go for in case you’re looking for a change!
A pixie cut is generally a short haircut style, wherein it’s short on the back and sides while being a little longer on the front end. It can also include bangs. They were highly popular in the 1950s and have been ever since. Kalki Koechlin has been seen pulling off this haircut in the bollywood industry.
A pixie is easy to maintain and keep clean. Not much styling is required either. It is a timeless hairstyle and makes you stand out.
