Janet Jackson's Shaved Head: FAIL
Even if Jackson was shooting for a pixie cut, it probably wouldn't have turned out the way she was hoping for. "The coarser your hair is, the worse the pixie-cut option is for you," says Gary Howse, co-founder of the Gary Manuel Salon and the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute. "As you go shorter, coarse hair just gets bulkier. If you want to go the short pixie route, its best to invest in a keratin treatment first to thin the hair out."
It's not just coarse hair that has trouble pulling off the pixie fine hair can get tricky too. "People with really fine hair should be careful about cutting their hair too short. You don't want to see the scalp, and if you go really short, you risk that," Howse says.
We're not quite sure what Jackson was aiming for, but her typically coarse hair along with her very visible scalp are two strikes against the pixie cut for her.
