Ep 9 - The History of the Pixie Haircut
In this episode, Ricco and Tony tell us the history of the Pixie cut, a sexy and sensual style used by women after World War I and the Spanish flu.

Over the years celebrities across the entertainment industry like Audrey Hepburn, Mia Farrow, Madonna, Halle Berry, and recently J-Lo have rocked this cut on the movies, tv-series, and stages across the world.
