Short celebrity hairstyles: The ‘short hair, don’t care’ crew

Kylie Jenner

Our favourite hairstyle chameleon is never far from a hot hair trend – and if you’re anything like us, you’ll find it difficult to keep up with what look she’s rocking right now.

But any of you hardcore Kylie Jenner fans out there will know she has ever shied away from bold colours and dramatic cuts – you name it, she’s probably tried it.

Editor’s tip:  If you want to get tresses as glossy as Kylie’s, make sure to prep your strands with the TONI&GUY Primer Smoothing Spray, as this will help protect your hair from heat, while moisturised from the inside and creating added shine.

Cate Blanchett

When actress Cate Blanchett stepped out onto the red carpet at the 2016 Oscars, she was sporting a brand new, just-below-the-ear cut, styling the ends loosely curled, for an elegant, vintage-feel.

The short cut frames her face perfectly and enhances her stunning features, while a soft wave set into the side swept fringe helps to soften the overall appearance!

Hilary Duff

Ever since she graced our screens as our childhood BFF, Lizzie McGuire, Hilary Duff has worked her long blonde locks in so many amazing ways.

Which made it all the more surprising when she waved goodbye to her luscious, long locks and took the plunge, opting went for a chin-length bob!

Editor’s tip:  Want tousled tresses as enviable as these? Then reach for the VO5 Texturising Sea Salt Spray.

This neat little spray creates full-on texture and natural, messy waves, all while providing a light hold. Simply spritz on dry hair, twist your strands and blowdry into waves!

Just when you thought the only reason you had to be jealous of Chrissy Teigen was for her marriage to John Legend, her wondrous good looks, and her established modelling career (so, not much really), she decides to join the ever-growing lob brigade!

Mindy Kaling

Honestly, celebrity short haircuts don’t get much chicer than this! Another stylish way to work a bob haircut is to opt for a fashion-forward, asymmetric cut, like Mindy Kaling’s.

This style is especially suitable for those of you with round faces, as an asymmetric style will help to lengthen the appearance of your face while highlighting those lovely high cheekbones!

If you’re after a shorter ‘do, then look to Ruth Negga for inspiration. This up-and-coming actress has been giving us major pixie crop inspiration recently, and we love the way that she styles her cropped strands into soft, textured waves.

 Michelle Williams

As far as short celebrity hairstyles go, Michelle Williams rules the roost. The actress often styles her platinum blonde pixie cut sleek and straight, by tucking her deep-parted strands behind her ears.

It’s neat, it’s simple, and it’s totally easy to maintain!

Editor’s tip: Michelle is seriously tempting us with her dazzling mane, and if it’s got you all giddy too, you need to invest in the TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops to get that gloss!

Got curly hair and struggle to style it? Well, actress Malin Akerman is living proof that curls can be cropped short, without leaving them looking too wild!

Just remember to get some long layers chopped in, to leave your curls looking bouncy, as opposed to weighed down.
