Who Is Scarlett Johansson?

Scarlett Ingrid Johansson is an American actress who got her start in theatre and minor film roles. She had always wanted a career in the performing arts, and luckily, she had a very supportive family. Scarlett got her first starring role in the 1996 film Manny & Lo, which got her lots of rave reviews.

Eventually, Scarlett transitioned to more mature roles, starting with 2003’s Lost in Translation and Girl with a Pearl Earring. Variety calls her one of her generation’s most multi-faceted young actresses”, which you can’t argue with once you see her impressive filmography.

Of course, we can’t talk about ScarJo without bringing up her most popular role to date: Black Widow! She definitely worked hard to get the role: she dyed her hair red to convince the director that she was right for the job, and took stunt and strength training to prove she could do it! Next year, we can look forward to finally seeing more of Scarlett being a badass in a solo Black Widow film!

Best Scarlett Johansson Short Hairstyles

Pixie Cut

Pixie cuts gained popularity in the 1950s, when Aubrey Hepburn rocked the cut in her debut film Roman Holiday. It’s a sleek, chic, and no-fuss style that’s easy to pair with statement accessories for different occasions.

ScarJo rocks a pixie cut at the 71st Annual Tony Awards. Here, we can see that she kept the hair at the top of her head a little longer, which allowed for that amazing wavy texture!

One of the first times that Scarlett was seen rocking a pixie cut was after she gave birth to her daughter Rose Dorothy in 2014. It may have been in preparation for the mum life, because short hairstyles mean less fuss and more time to spend with the baby!


While the undercut used to be pretty much exclusive to men’s hairstyles, the 2010s saw a ton of women rocking the style too. It’s definitely a bold and edgy look, and ScarJo pulls it off immaculately!

Scarlett clearly loves the undercut: she had one in 2015, and again in 2017, when she starred as Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell. Most of the images that were taken of Scarlett in 2017 show her with a neat undercut offset by interesting textures on top.

Bob haircuts are nothing new to Scarlett! She’s been known to sport shorter versions of the cut in the past. It doesn’t matter whether she has short or long hair, she oozes sexiness either way.

She’s also made some very interesting choices. Did you know that ScarJo once sported a mullet? In 2003, she rocked a pseudo-mullet reminiscent of 80s rockstars. It was crazy, but Scarlett loved it.
