I’m 13, a tomboy but I go to and all girls school. Sure, it’s not all bad but it wasn’t even my first choice of school. You have to wear a skirt but I’m used to that now however school is the only place I actually wear one. Constantly being told to tuck in my shirt and roll down my blazer sleeves, joy! At home and out side of school I wear jeans and tshirts. I have average length hair which I kind of want to get cut short but I don’t have the guts even though my family knows I’m a tomboy. I’m ok with being a girl but I want to act, dress and live like a boy. I love video games and one of my closest friends Is a boy. Does anyone know any easy ways to ask parents for a pixie cut? I also want to change my style a bit and I think a hair cut would help that. Thanks and I really love reading all your stories too!

When I wanted it cut, I just went to a unisex barbers and got it cut to the style (with my parent’s permission).
The best thing to do is ask them if you can have a hair cut, show them a bunch of styles you like and then go to a unisex barber because barber dudes can cut hair for tomboys WAY better. Trust me, the very first time I got my hair cut shorter I went to a hairdresser because my sister wanted to get it cut too.
She cut it the girly way. I have really curly hair and it looked like I walked off the set of Grease.
If you do get a pixie instead of the short-back-and-sides look that most tomboys I know have, get a fringe and style it in to a quiff (but not straight up, go either left or right.)
Going on this site reminded me about how I should probably post my story too.
Good luck, Izzy! By the way, if you ever wanna trick people into thinking you’re a guy, (especially strangers because it’s hilarious XD) say your name is Issac. It just fits really well.
Thanks a lot A. I asked my mum if I could cut my hair- she said no. -_- I tried persuading her she says I have to wait till I’m 16 (better than nothing) but said she would rather I spray my hair pink. So tommorow I’m going to the shop with my friend to buy temporary pink hair spray! If you haven’t gathered already I’m quite stubborn XD
Youre probably never gonna see this but im just sitting at my pc and i see this website come up, then i remember i posted on it a year ago. I came out as transgender male a few months ago now and everything is getting better. I chose the name Isaac because i remembered it was suggested here (slightly different spelling tho haha). So I just wanna say thanks, you helped me alot actually. 🙂
