Think new short hairstyles are exclusively for ultra cropped manes? Well, if you’re reluctant to part with your lengthy strands, simply opt for a long bob a la Penelope Cruz.

Her shoulder-length cut comes complete with a sultry, Brigette Bardot-inspired fringe, which is set to be super popular for 2017. Now that’s what we call sex appeal!

Been searching high and low for new hairstyles for short hair? For a playful, daring look, draw inspiration from Scarlett Johansson’s edgy pixie crop with an undercut.

The combination of hair lengths (and her stunning blonde ombre hue) make her mane look full of texture and movement! It also works really well to complement her heart-shaped face, helping to brighten her overall appearance.

Editor’s tip: To help add texture and body to your mane, work a 5p-sized piece of the TIGI S Factor Creamy Molding Wax through dry hair. Pull your strands in different directions as you go and you’ll easily create a disheveled, messy finish.

If you ask us, actress America Ferrera works a layered, wavy bob unlike anyone else! While wavy bobs were a big hit for 2016, this year, they’ve been upgraded to feature tonnes of luscious layers and added texture.

We reckon that the best thing about this versatile style is that it’s perfect for both day and night events – bonus!

For a sultry, hair-raising style, take a leaf out of Alyssa Milano’s book and opt for a long, graduated pixie crop.

With more length on top, and less on the sides and back, this haircut really keeps all of the attention on the top of your head. So if you’re looking to add a few inches to your look, this should be your top choice!

Editor’s tip: To help add texture and movement, use a curling tong to curl the top section of your pixie. And don’t forget to set your waves in place with a hairspray, like the VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray!
