Short Hair, Don’t Care
Girls can look feminine in boy cuts, too. It’s easy to get attached to long locks, but chopping them off could take a load off your shoulders. Not only is it breezy, but it also adds an edgy touch to your look – take it from singers like Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Cardi B!
The best part is that you don’t have to spend too much time getting ready. Gone are the days of messy tangles, ponytails, or buns. Because it’s so low-maintenance, you get to have a good hair day every day! Whether it’s a playful bob, a subtle undercut, or a daring buzz cut, short hair is best rocked with minimal care and maximum confidence.
10 Celebrities With Short Hair
Hollywood is all about the glitz and glamour, but there are more ways than one to stand out. These celebs make heads turn not just with their beautiful outfits, but with their hairstyles too. Here are 10 celebrities that rock short hair like it’s nobody’s business!
1. Halle Berry
It’s no surprise that Halle Berry comes out at the top of the list! Her iconic hair helped launch her into stardom. In an interview with Glamour, she gave her personal reasons for keeping her signature look. “When you have short hair, there’s just a feeling of here I am. What you see is what you get. And there’s a confidence that comes with wearing short hair and I like the way that makes me feel.”
2. Scarlett Johansson
Scar Jo is one of the most gorgeous actresses ever, but being red-carpet-ready isn’t always effortless! In an interview with Vogue, she admitted she did it to be practical. “I just wanted to cut it, I guess. I’m really bad at doing my hair. I think I got sick of putting it in a ponytail or piling it under a wig and having that take up time.”
3. Natalie Portman
Natalie went all-out when shaved her head in front of the camera for her role in V for Vendetta. When asked about it on an interview with Black Film, she expressed “For me, personally, I was excited to have the opportunity to throw vanity away for a little and go around with no hair.”
4. Anne Hathaway
There’s no question that Anne Hathaway is a dedicated actress, but she struggled to let go for her role in the Broadway musical Les Miserables. While we love how it looks on her, she confessed in an interview with Mirror how she wept uncontrollably after making the cut. “It had the effect of changing my identity. I was reduced to a mental patient level of crying... I was inconsolable.”
5. Emma Watson
Emma grew up as Hermione from the Harry Potter series, and she couldn’t cut her cute, curly hair because of her role. When filming was over, she celebrated with a long-awaited haircut. She expressed her excitement with Entertainment Weekly. “Oh my God, it was the most liberating thing! The stylist just grabbed the back of my hair and took a whole ponytail of hair out. It felt amazing. I love it.”
6. Miley Cyrus
Miley shocked fans when she went from long brunette to short, platinum blonde. But she admitted that she’s been wanting to have short hair since her early days as Hannah Montana! She told the Daily Telegraph: “I could never see myself with long, long hair again. It was so much maintenance. This is so easy! It’s so nice.”
7. Keira Knightley
Keira was lovely when she had a short hairstyle, but it looks like the British actress won’t be doing it again. In an interview with Marie Claire, she admitted it took courage to make it happen. “They had asked me to cut it for a movie and I said, ‘No, you can do it with a wig’. But then I’d been thinking about cutting it so, you know, we had a glass of champagne and we were still talking about it, then another glass, and by the third glass, my hair was cut off.”
8. Jennifer Lawrence
J-Law is famous for being quirky and honest. The Hunger Games star explained in an interview with Today that she initially cut her hair to undo the damage of repetitive dyeing that had fried her hair. “It grew to that awkward gross length, and I kept putting it into a bun, so I just cut it off, it couldn’t have gotten any uglier!”
9. Kristen Stewart
Kristen has come a long way since her debut as Bella Swan in Twilight. In an interview with Marie Claire, she confessed that it made her feel like a ‘real girl’. “My hair was such a crutch. I looked ‘sexy’ no matter what. I could hide behind it. As soon as I didn’t have all that hair, I had to let my face hang out. I felt more confident than I had in a really long time. And it felt really good.”
10. Vanessa Hudgens
The Highschool Musical star was beautiful with her soft, wavy hair but she looked stunning when she cut it short for her role in Gimme Shelter. Her vibe reminds us of classic Hollywood glam, but she called it a ‘soccer mom haircut’ in an interview with Glamour. “There’s nothing wrong with soccer moms, but I’m only 22! I miss [my hair] believe me, I do, but there’s nothing I can do about it.”
These celebs prove that you can be a cut above the rest when you put your hairstyle to the test. Your hair is your crown to wear, so now it’s time to get the pixie cut you’ve always wanted!
