Short Celebrity Hairstyles and Haircuts for Major Inspo

If you’re stuck at home at the moment, why not use the time to plan your next short haircut? (Or, be brave enough to pick up the scissors and cut or trim your own hair, safely!) Join me in dreaming about the day you can sit in your stylist’s chair again for a shape-up. You might as well start fresh with a short style that’ll be conveniently off your neck for warm spring and summer days to come.

And you don’t have to go short, short if you don’t want to. Start by shedding off a few inches with a lob, then take it from there.

There are endless options for every texture – so much freedom lies in short hair! Don’t worry, these styles don’t require tons of upkeep. If you’re not the biggest hair person, there are shake-it-and-go options for you.

To get you inspired to make the chop and to help you figure out what to do with your hair once you’ve gone short, I’ve picked varied celebrity looks that will act as your spiritual hair guide. You’re going to want to save these to your mood board.

Asymmetrical Bob

Katy Perry’s side-swept blue bob is just wonderful. Sporting a blunt bob that frames her face beautifully, this classic hairstyle with subtle layers can be tweaked to suit any face shape. However, since this polished hairstyle grows out rapidly, make sure you visit your stylist every 5 weeks to keep your hairstyle in perfect shape. While opting for a new, bright shade – ask your hairdresser to choose a colour that complements your skin tone.

Long Blonde Bob

Actress Julianne Hough rocked her super-sleek and sharp angular long bob with side-swept bangs. Known for further elongating a rounder face, the side swept fringe gave her edgy hairstyle a romantic touch and softened her features.

To recreate this chic and smooth look, apply an anti-frizz serum to straighten your hair. Once straightened, mist hairspray to tame flyways hair.

Pixie Cut

Pixie cut is undoubtedly the best short haircuts for women with straight hair. Emma Watson’s pixie is a bold step towards a poised and confident personal style. Equally chic and feminine, this combed, simple and easy-to-recreate bob is a great in-between style during the growing out period of a pixie cut. To keep your hair in shape and style flawless, visit your salon for regular trims.

Short Pixie

Over the years, actress Ginnifer Goodwin has worn her hair in a lot of different ways, but this retro pixie is the most classy and sophisticated of them all. The actress looks boyish-ly radiant with her poker-straight bob, stylish side-swept parting, and subtle layers. Maintain this look with a straightening iron and a good supply of smoothing anti-frizz hairspray.

Long And Side Sweeping

Anne’s flirty style looks fresh and modern ending at the cheekbones with a low side-parting. This style looks incredible on the former The Princess Diaries star Anne Hathaway. We love how her side sweeping hair falls on her cheekbones, drawing attention to her eyes and facial features. Not to forget Anne’s auburn hair colour, something we’d like to recreate in the near future.

Sweeping Bangs

Here, actress Sami Gayle sports a look with shorter bangs and sides, similar to that of Anne Hathaway. We adore the way her bangs sweep across her face, directing attention to her beautiful face features. A perfect everyday pixie hairstyle, the actress looks charming with her neat and simple-to-create-maintain hairdo..

Round Bob

Singer Ashlee is totally owning the bob. It’s flirty, short, and blonde; therefore ticking all the latest trends this season. Her below-the-chin hair length and the sweeping bangs are perfect for her round face shape. Not to forget, we equally love her platinum blonde hair colour. To maintain the look and colour in check, visit your stylist for the regular trims and touch-ups.

Bob With Blunt Bangs

Wanda Badwal looks gorgeous with her flirty, glossy, and contemporary brown bob. Pair your bob with blunt bangs to further conceal an oval face shape; and for a bold look, glam up the hairstyle with a quirky hair colour. Just remember to choose a flattering shade to your skin tone and you are good to go with your perfect bob hairstyle.


Rihanna. We cannot express how stunningly and absolutely cool this combed pixie is on the talented songstress. Make the use of flat iron, texturizing serum, and light hairspray to recreate this look.

Blonde And Polished

When we spotted actress Michelle Williams in this polished pixie, we almost reached for the scissors! The beautiful actress shows us how a look can transform with a simple blonde pixie cut. Her boyish ‘do is a fabulous contrast to her round feminine face, and it accentuates her eyes beautifully. Flirty and very nice indeed.

And there you have it – glamorous celebrity looks for short straight hairstyles! With plenty of looks to choose from, we’re sure you’ve found your inspiration to try out a new short hairstyle.
