Public Service Announcement: Phoebe Bridgers Used to Have a Pixie Cut

This post exists for one reason and one reason only: to spread awareness of the fact that Phoebe Bridgers, highly talented musician and wielder of a sword, once had a pixie cut. I know what you’re thinking: surely there is no way that a pixie cut could possibly hold a candle to Phoebe’s current style, wispy and shoulder-length, the colour of stardust and the consistency of cornsilk. Case in point, from i-D’s “Bridgers on Bridges” feature, photographed by Lily Bertrand-Webb:

But if you scroll back far enough on Phoebe’s Instagram, you will find that the pixie cut can hold a candle. It can hold many candles.

She sometimes went very femme with it:

And sometimes very butch:

But always, without exception, she is pulling off this pixie cut harder than anyone has ever pulled off a pixie cut.

She even managed to make lemonade out of the awkward growing-out phase — which is damn near impossible — as evidenced by this photo, which she captioned “#mancrushmonday (myself).”

She could probably pull off… I don’t know, anything? A mohawk? A mullet? I would, frankly, like to see her try. Okay, now I feel guilty for writing an entire post about how cool her hair is.
