A good stylist for a pixie cut?

unspeakable visions christine pixie cutSarah asks via the Facebook:

Hey, can anyone recommend a good stylist for a pixie cut? It can be so hard to find someone really good with short cuts for women...Thanks!

Our first thought when seeing Sarah's question was Christine over at Unspeakable Visions and her super cute pixie cut -- she chronicled her switch to the pixie in a fun series for the "pixie curious." That's Christine on the right.

But going short can feel like a jump. So... have a good stylist to suggest for Sarah? Please share!

Christina over at Patsy's Pin Ups on Howard St in Albany!

She's the only one I let touch my hair, and I'm a licensed cosmetologist so that has to be saying something.

She's been doing this for awhile and knows exactly what she's doing!

She does great asymmetrical cuts and pixies! And has tons of specials as they are a newer salon and are about to have their grand opening on September 6th!

Tell her Melissa sent you!

Christine here, from the Pixie Cut Series :) I've had great pixie cuts from a number of local salons including by Oksana at Jean Paul and most recently by Liza at Townsend & Co. She's great.

My #1 tip is to bring lots of photos, front & back views if possible. There are lots of different interpretations of a pixie cut, so make sure you & your stylist are on the same page!

I got a good one at Classical Concepts in Saratoga a while back... I think the stylist's name might have been Brian, iirc.

Christine, your hair was and is adorable!

in the interest of full disclosure let me say I'm a stylist at V Salon (482-1880) on Western Avenue, and wore my hair in a razored pixie for about 10 years. My coworker (at the time) Ryan at Jean Paul did it. He cut my hair the way I'd cut it if I could've done it myself. So give me a call, or if you prefer a dude, go see him! :-)

I'm not "afraid" of cutting short hair, and know what it's like when it feels too long, even when it's only grown a 1/2 inch!

Ashely at Innovations on Western is so sweet and talented, I would trust her with any style. She has given me by far the best short cuts I have ever had.

I would second Ryan at Jean Paul & also highly recommend Courtney at Courtney's Salon on Western. She is fantastic- even when my hair has gone a little too long without a trim (bad news with a pixie!), I still get complements on her cuts!

My coworker at Spa Virgo on Lark Street, Jonathan, does great pixie cuts. He's been doing a mutual coworker's hair for years and she swears by him. Mine's a bit longer or else I'd say the same but I love his work.

I highly recommend Kayln @ Karizma on carmen rd in Guilderland. Ive been going to her for years... always keep my hair short and always get a ton of compliments on her cuts. (518) 810-1481

This is certainly a missed opportunity. How does this convey "welcome" "healing" or "pediatrics"? It's got the same aesthetic (and one can infer design values) as the AMC parking structures, Cogen, cvs, and offices. Did they even hire an architect? Come on Albany. Demand more from this institution. The bar has been too low for too long and their footprint grows and grows.
