The fringe

One of our favourite shorter hairstyles is inspired by Frankie Sanford, pop-singer from the British girl band, The Saturday’s. Not only is Frankie’s hair easy to style, but the shorter bangs at the front allow you to create a number of different looks.

Back in 2006, Sienna Miller chopped her long blonde locks in favour of a shorter hairstyle to play the lead part of Edie Sedgewick in Factory Girl. More than eight years later, and Sienna has yet again chopped her hair into this super-flattering style.

Go for wispy bangs to frame a square shaped face, and cut hair shorter in the back for added texture.

The Best Bob Hairstyles Ever The lob

Otherwise known as the long bob, is perfect for girls who still want to keep a bit of length in their hair. This style sits above the shoulders, and usually sports a blunt haircut for added drama.

Host and reality television star, Giuliana Rancic wears the lob with long layers, but you can also cut a fringe to make the hairstyle look less harsh.

The ombré bob

Singer Ciara has transformed her hair into a super-short ombré bob right in front of our eyes! This style works perfectly from dark to light hair, since highlights are hand-painted on the ends for a gradient look. Go for a short chop (just under the ears), to create the illusion of texture in thin hair.

Celebrity Hairstyles: Pamela Anderson’s New Pixie Cut

Who’s the latest celebrity to chop off their hair? Pamela Anderson has ditched her signature bombshell blonde locks and opted for an ultra short pixie cut. We actually had to do a double take!

Anderson, 46, showed off her chic new short haircut in L.A. today – and we think she looks amazing!

Seems like the pixie haircut is one of Hollywood’s favourite celebrity hairstyles – with Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams and Anna Hathaway all sporting the feminine ‘do.

The Baywatch babe who now devotes her time to animal rights was accompanied by ex-husband  Rick Salomon. Two weeks ago Anderson admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that the pair have been spending more time together lately, including a holiday to France where they were spotted on a nudist beach.

“I say we’re best friends…with benefits,” she told the talk show host. “I don’t want to meet anyone else…I’m very happy. We’re happy. He’s a great guy.”

Beyonce Debuts New Pixie Cut

Beyonce has chopped off her famously long locks and debuted a new pixie haircut.

The singer, 31, posted three snaps on Instagram on Thursday showing off her new hairstyle that is no doubt going to inspire a new trend for very short hair.

It comes just a day after her last concert in Brooklyn, NY, where she sported long wavy hair.


Her longtime hairstylist Kim Kimble had no idea she was going to cut her hair, especially as Beyonce has a video to shoot this weekend which Kimble was planning to style a “retro 50’s type of hair.”

Kimble admitted she was really surprised and even emotional at seeing Beyonce’s new pixie cut on Instagram. “I got a little teary eyed!” she told People. “I’ve been working for her so long, she has this beautiful long hair and it’s hard to grow hair out. I feel like it’s my hair, I work so much with her. I feel a little emotional but excited for her too.”


Beyonce has been a fan of weaves and extensions for years, enhanced by her own long hair. “She had great, thick long hair, which she cut off because she’s ready to make a statement,” said Kimble. “It’s a great [one] to make: I’m beautiful, sexy, bold and I can do it all. She’s the perfect model for that: A working woman, mom, superstar, businesswoman. She’s powerful in herself. “

5 Of The Best Very Short Hairstyles

Winter is the perfect time to make a major hairstyle change and opt for the chop. Very short hair looks super chic with a turtleneck and trench coat (and gives you enough time before summer to grow it out if you’re not thrilled with the look).

The decision to chop your long hair off can make you quite apprehensive, particularly as you come to the day of your hair cut and still haven’t made the decision of which style to go for! To help you make that decision, here are five of the best very short hairstyles out there right now.

Pixie cut hairstyle

This is a stylish and eye-catching style for thin, fine hair and is a favourite with celebrities like Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway. It will really make your eyes pop, so now is the time to play up your eye makeup with stronger brows and dark lashes.


Short and sleek bob

This is a variation of the pixie cut but with longer and shorter layers to give a sleeker look. This style is perfect for all ages and ideal if you’ve got fine hair and are looking for a more sophisticated, fashionable look as a refreshing change to long, limp locks – just ask Katie Holmes.


Face framing bob

This chic hair cut is short at the back and long enough at the front to frame your face and can suit every face shape, but it particularly compliments a rounder face. For an even more striking look, pair the chop with a bold new hair colour, like Ashlee Simpson’s platinum blonde bob.


Short and messy hairstyle

Messy short styles are among the easiest to maintain, often needing just a quick tousle with some wax – ideal if you’re not a morning person and only have a few minutes to get ready! Short and messy hairstyles also suit different face shapes. Drew Barrymore’s messy bob is both sexy and sophisticated.


Classic bob with fringe 

There are so many variations to the classic bob, though a very short version with a bold fringe is trending once more and really gives body to otherwise flyaway hair. Dannii Minogue’s bob and fringe is one of our favourite hairstyles of all time. It’s more high maintenance than other bob hairstyles, but you can style the fringe in many ways, including a side swept fringe, clipped up away from the face or tousled in soft waves.
