During the upcoming year, we are bound to see the shorter hairstyles appearing more and more, but for those planning on chopping down on their locks, it may be a good idea to check out some of the best short hairstyles the celebrities are sporting these days. Spring is normally the best time to go short in either case as it dignifies a new beginning as well as being rather practical. Come summertime, shorter hair or medium length at that point, is desirable to longer locks as there is less to weigh down and you will sweat decidedly less. Winter chops, particularly with the coming of the new year are also pretty common, though it may be better to keep the hair long until you no longer need the protective warmth of it on your nape. Here are some amazing short hairdos by celebrity women, who have gone to short chops and pixie cuts.
1. Charlize Theron Curly Short Hairstyle
If you want to look elegant in your short hairdo, while appearing fabulously young despite your age, go the Charlize Theron style and dress to impress with curly locks pushed back for full volume. Needless to say, she looks stunning and we can definitely recommend this look to women in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. It’s got a retro look that cannot be denied while opening up the features that you have highlighted with your makeup. A touch of mascara accompanying red lips completes the look.
2. Karlie Kloss Textured Short Hairstyle
International supermodel Karlie Kloss knows how to show off her pretty features, which has led her to coining her own “Karlie” hairdo. It’s as pretty as she is, textured in cut and with side swept bangs. The longest pieces reach the top of her neck when lightly waved. She looks lovely rather angelic, which is fitting since she’s most definitely a favourite Victoria’s Angel model. She’s due to find her way onto the stage once again within the month as the long awaited VS show finally opens up in London.
3. Julia Garner Afro Short Hairstyle
No one can argue that Julia Garner’s fabulous Afro isn’t the most beautiful head of curls we’ve ever seen. It’s so amazingly retro, chic and glamorous that we cannot help but envy the perfection of her naturally voluminous ‘do. With gorgeous blue eyes and light blonde hair, she looks like the perfect doll. Moreover, rosy lips, full and bold lashes as well as dusted cheeks truly have her reminding us of one of those precious porcelain dolls we adored as children.
4. Reese Witherspoon Retro Short Bob
She’s always been stunning, but this latest retro inspired hairstyle that has turned her bob into a blonde lob is actually rather interesting. It may not be the best style she’s ever worn, but come holiday time, you might want to go for something a little different and this is one wavy look you can definitely opt for. It’s chic and perfectly coiffed, something that is bound to grab some attention out on the town.
5. Jaimie Alexander Textured Pixie
Opting for the less is more style that’s in for the 2015 spring season, Jaimie Alexander has decided to chop up her locks into a gorgeous textured pixie cut that frames her face perfectly. It’s almost too perfect, giving off the illusion that she will sprout translucent wings and sprinkle fairy dust on us. The choppy layered cut is certainly one you can copy for your own hair if your face shape is a similar style. Make sure you are always careful about the type of pixie cut you get, ensuring it corresponds with your features.
6. Evan Rachel Wood Smooth Short Bob
Gorgeous bobs don’t get better than Evan Rachel Wood’s smooth and straight look. It’s short, it’s sleek and it’s certainly one of the most sophisticated cuts we’ve seen. She looks positively radiant, particularly with her bright red lipstick and bold lashes fanning her eyes to complete the look. Ensuring a slight texture as well, this side-parted volume-infused look is certainly a holiday ‘do you may want to consider.
7. Beyoncé Knowles Wob
When it comes to short bobs, Beyoncé Knowles really knows how to glam it up. Looking entirely too fabulous with her soft waves falling to just below the ears, the international superstar knows how to dress up those locks of hers. A center part adds to the volume around the edges of the cut, making her short bob a look most would be envious of. Combined with bold lashes on cat eyes and simple glossy lips, not to mention snakeskin larger disk earrings, this look is too lovely for words alone.
8. Anne Hathaway Short Wavy Bob
We’ve seen Anne Hathaway with a wide array of hairstyles, including an extremely short cut on Les Miserables. She’s rather good in playing chameleon, her acting and appearance blending in with the movie’s theme in which she plays. Her soft short bob, however, is probably the most suited for her off-screen appearance, knowing her sass and sweet nature. A side-parted wavy look with the edges curling inward towards the base of her throat, this retro-style elegance is certainly the right look for the lovely actress. It’s also a look one can easily emulate as it takes little in terms of maintenance and simply requires sleek texture.
9. Sienna Miller Slicked-Back Short Hairstyle
A red carpet look is easily achieved with a short cut and Sienna Miller proved this with her stunning appearance. Slicking back her straight blonde tendrils, the face has been opened up to shine brightly while her makeup denotes she is indeed not a boy, despite the boyish cut. There’s something decidedly 1990s about the look in itself, but it suits Sienna Miller’s face shape perfectly. Add thick dark lashes and bright red lipstick to the mix and there’s something positively stunning about the slightly textures slick look. It is sexy sophistication and rebellious attitude in one.
10. Karen Gillan Short Hairstyle With Bangs
If you want a glamorous feel to the shorter cut you’ve take the plunge for, you might want to do the pretty waves Karen Gillan has got going on her longer bangs. The slightly off-center part looks great with the mostly straight hair that’s had some texture added to the edges with soft flips. The earrings look spectacular, while the smoky eyes and lighter lipstick work together quite nicely to bring about a lovely overall beauty style.
11. Marion Cotillard Sleek Bob
If you want to go simple but elegant, with a style that’s neither too short nor too long, you should stick to the sleek bob sported by Marion Cotillard, with a side part and a tuck behind the ear for added effects in the sophistication arena. It’s minimalistic, with bright eyes and glossy pink lips to compliment the look. She looks pretty and she looks casual, but most of all, she can use this look both on a date, and while strolling about the city during the day.
12. Olympia Scarry Androgynous Short Hairstyle
If you imagine getting a really close boy cut, Olympia Scarry’s strands have been chopped into a pretty pixie that’s as close to her scalp as possible while keeping its distinctive femininity. Those eyes certainly look mesmerizing without any hair to cover their sparkling beauty, while the highlighted minimalistic makeup in general leaves Scarry looking utterly roguish in an English style. Simple gold hoops on her ears bring more of a feminine touch to her style, while the hair itself has been given texture and lift at the roots. She definitely looks very pretty and you can easily go for that look as well if you face shape matches hers.

She’s got her own unique style and with pastel hair colors in for the season, you can definitely pull off a lavender short cut, possibly even a signature Mohawk if you go that way. The buzzed sides give it more of an authentic feel while a focus on the eye makeup ensures there’s a bit of a feminine touch to the look as a whole. Pretty dangling earrings will also help with that image.
15. Kwai Lun-Mei Mushroom Short Hairstyle
If you want to go totally different, love the mushroom cut but not enough to get it and think Kwai Lun-Mei’s style is awesome, you might want to opt to cut your hair in a way that leaves the bangs super long but shorn the rest closer to the head. Swooping bangs look great on this Taiwanese actress who has generally always worn her hair in a short bob, playing with bangs, buzz cuts and pretty side parts on straight strands.

When going for the super short looks but with an added edge to the design, using Halle Berry as your role model may be a good enough idea as that woman has been rocking the short ‘do for years!

Jenna Elfman’s boho waves on her lovely shoulder length hair shine through perfectly, while her dangling colourful stoned earrings being some summer fun to the look. We cannot imagine a more beautiful look to rock during the spring and summer months coming up soon enough!
