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,” she explained.
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,” she admitted.
3. Natalie Portman
Natalie went all-out when shaved her head in front of the camera for her role in V for Vendetta.
“For me, personally, I was excited to have the opportunity to throw vanity away for a little and go around with no hair," she said in an interview with Black Film.
4. Anne Hathaway
There’s no question that Anne Hathaway is a dedicated actress, but she struggled to let go of her long locks for a role in the film adaptation of the 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. “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," she told Entertainment Weekly.
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!
“I could never see myself with long, long hair again. It was so much maintenance. This is so easy! It’s so nice,” she told the Daily Telegraph.
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. Millie Bobby Brown
Millie Bobby Brown was only young when she chopped off her hair, sporting a shaved head for her role as Eleven in Stranger Things. However, she took it in her stride like the champion she is.
“For me, my hair isn’t my everything … I think there are girls out there who have alopecia, who have cancer, terrible diseases, and I think that I can show them that it’s cool to have short hair and that you can just embrace who you are,” Millie said in an interview with Access Hollywood at the time.
