We think it's fair to say that short hairstyles are totally having a
moment - something Scarlett Johansson certainly knows.
Miller's been snapped sporting a tousled cut, while Charlize Theron has proved to be a fan of close crops. More and
more A-listers are chopping off their long locks to work something way
'I love the idea of wearing an evening dress with
a hair cut, rather than a hair do,' celebrity hair stylist Orlando Pita
told us in an exclusive interview for Marie Claire Runway. 'It updates
your whole look - you wear your hair cut.' Just look to Cheryl Fernandez
Versini. Cheryl's effortlessly cool seventies bob looks ultra-glam when
worn with a stylish cocktail dress - but is still equally glamorous
when worn with denim on the weekend.
And as demonstrated by Rosie
Huntington-Whiteley, it's simple to achieve fuss-free elegance with
short hair. The model likes to centre-part her choppy layers before
adding plenty of volume with products.
Considering going for the
chop but scared at the same time? You're not alone, says Orlando. 'I
had been trying to get Karlie Kloss to cut her hair for ages and when
she finally did do it, she loved it! I think sometimes women can't
picture themselves with a short hair cut if they have had long hair for a
long time. It's good for people to cut their hair - I get bored with
long hair and I like showing alternatives.'
Actress Lily Collins
is one star keen to show that it's not hard to craft short hair into
more adventurous styles for special occasions. A regular on the red
carpet, Lily's been known to experiment with curlers before premieres to
achieve timeless old school Hollywood glamour.
