Girl-of-the-moment Jennifer Lawrence shocked the world. And all she had to do was cut her hair. Waving goodbye to the Katniss Everdeen braid, Lawrence debuted her now famous pixie cut in November of last year. Lawrence’s style is all about short layers for an easy, fuss-free style. But the real centerpiece of the J-Law are the bangs! Wispy and brushed to the side, they’re sure to flatter any forehead. Believe it or not, this is an incredibly versatile cut! Need proof? Check out Lawrence’s many awards season styles! From beautiful bouffants to sleek and stylish, Lawrence showed that you don’t have to sacrifice style for short hair.
It’s time to go back—all the way back to 2007. It was the year that Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham traded in her trademark brunette hairdo for platinum blonde locks, and solidified herself as the fashionista we all wanted to be. Never one to follow the trends, Beckham was famous for her uncommonly short ‘do. Posh rocks the asymmetrical cut, whether it’s in a close crop or a super-chic bob. It might not be 2007 anymore, but this look is as cutting-edge as ever. Why not make it your signature style?
Just call it The J-Law Amplified! Before Katniss’ famous braid, we had Hermione Granger’s frizzy mane. Emma Watson made a similar move once filming on the Harry Potter series wrapped by cutting her hair into a Mia Farrow-inspired pixie. Forget J-Law’s fringe, Watson went the whole nine yards. The result was a unique look that flattered Watson’s small features. This cut is ideal for the girl whose hair has been abused by hot styling tools and over-coloring. It’ll give your mane a new lease on life! It’s also perfect for on-the-go styling!
At this point, we’re pretty sure Rihanna can rock any hairstyle! Though we’ve seen RiRi’s hair both long and short, our personal favorite might just be when she had her honey-blonde locks. In 2009, Rihanna went for a look that was totally edgy, opting to shave one side of her head. For a red carpet appearance, she swept her remaining hair to the side. It was a bouffant worthy of any rock star. This look is totally unique, but it requires some commitment! If you’ve got the passion, go for it! Just don’t forget your MAC lipstick!
Try something new this fall and go for the chop. Long hair is overrated!
