9 of the best short haircuts from all your fave A-listers
1. Lily Rose Depp’s blunt bob
When it comes to the best short hairstyles you want one that is on-trend, right? Well, did you know that blunt haircuts are predicted to be one of the biggest styles in 2019? So do like Lily and get ahead of the curve by upping your mane game with this blunt bob.
2. Kirsten Dunst’s side sweeping fringe
Fargo actress Kirsten Dunst teamed her blonde bob with a side parting. Now that would be a great look in itself but by sweeping her hair across her face, Kirsten creates sweet faux side bangs which we just adore!
3. Margot Robbie’s beachy lob
Long bob styles were all over the beauty scene last year and they’re showing no signs of letting up. Adored by celebrities from Kendall Jenner and Olivia Munn, the long bob is one of the most versatile styles on the market, which means everyone and anyone can wear the style.
Editor’s tip: For Margot’s effortless beach waves on the go, simply spray the VO5 Texturising Sea Salt Spray on to towel-dried hair, scrunching it through with your hands.
4. Tilda Swinton’s undercut quiff
When it comes to the best short haircuts, Tilda Swinton needs to be on your hair radar. Never one to shy away from bold styles, Tilda has tried them all. But it’s this swept-back style that we love most.
Style tip: To get Tilda’s androgynous look, ask your stylist for a long pixie top with deep undercut sides.
5. Gemma Arterton’s soft pixie
Gemma Arterton’s soft pixie if not only one of the best short haircuts but one of the most popular, too! Styling her medium brown hair in a side parting, Gemma finished the look with short, side-sweeping bangs. It’s practical, feminine, and just to die for!
6. Elisabeth Moss’ flicked out curls
If you are looking for the best short haircuts that won’t totally transform your look (one step at a time, right?), ease the transition from long locks to a pixie in style with this shoulder-length cut.
7. Helen McCrory’s short pixie
Our fave Peaky Blinders actress chopped off her medium-length locks for a show-stopping (and jaw-dropping) curly short pixie recently and we think the cropped style helps to draw attention to her stunning features.
Editor’s tip: Keep your curls in check by using a hair mask, like TIGI’s Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Mask, to help smooth hair leaving it silky soft.
8. Taylor Schilling’s red carpet bob
Bobs are one of the best hairstyles for short hair, as proved by OITNB star Taylor Schilling, who gave her chin-grazing bob a red carpet makeover by parting her hair down the side and adding soft Hollywood waves.
9. Ciara’s bob and bangs combo
From Bella Hadid to Ciara, everyone is loving the bobs and bangs style at the moment (us included). But the moment we set eyes on Ciara’s full wispy fringe and curled-under bob, we fell even more head over heels for the style – come on, just look at the volume!
Editor’s tip: Achieve Ciara’s bountiful volume without the salon price tag with TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse. Simply use on towel-dried hair to create extra body and bounce where you need it.
