Short Celebrity Hairstyles – Playful Pixie Cuts and Bob Cuts
Short celebrity hairstyles are fun, bold and even sexy. A short hairstyle shows off your facial features and the texture of your hair. If you have a bit of an edge and a fashionable flair, you can pull off one of these funky short celebrity hairstyles.
Playful Pixie Cuts
Forget Hermione’s thick, frizzy tresses in “Harry Potter.” Emma Watson recently traded in her long locks for a chic and trendy pixie cut. Other celebrities that pull off the look include Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, Elisha Cuthbert, Gennifer Goodwin, Halle Berry and Michelle Williams.
These stars prove that just about any face shape can pull off a pixie cut. While women with oval faces can wear any version, those with rounder faces should keep some length on the top and those with heart-shaped faces should frame their faces with short pieces.
Regular maintenance is essential to prevent your pixie cut from getting shaggy. Get a trim every month and stick with one solid hair color to make the cut really pop. Other than that, rocking a short cut is all about self-confidence, so let your inner pixie shine!
Beautiful Bob Cuts
Flirty and fun, bobs are making a huge comeback thanks to celebrities like Kirsten Dunst, January Jones, Rashida Jones, Jamie Pressly, Alyssa Milano, Keri Hilson, Uma Thurman, Katie Holmes, Rihanna, Christina Ricci and Anna Faris.
If you have fine hair, try a blunt bob to make it look thicker. A blunt cut also gives thin hair shape, while too many layers can flatten the look too much. If you have fine hair, stick to a blunt cut like Carey Mulligan and remember, a shorter bob will give thin hair its biggest volume boost.
For a soft and feminine look, take a clue from Michelle Obama. The First Lady’s classic bob is shaped with square layers that add body.
Create an edgier look like Keri Hilson by leaving one long piece of hair that trails down to your shoulder, then cutting the rest into a bob with razored ends. Add heavy bangs for a rock ‘n roll look.
For a super romantic look, mimic Keira Knightley’s layered bob. The soft shape is achieved by cutting heavier, shorter peices in the back, which push the hair forward. The result is a lovely curved shape that frames the face.
To slim a round face, try a choppy style like Olivia Munn. Her bob’s short front pieces slim the face and provide textue.
